I remember when I first discovered Bible Journaling. I was browsing through social media, and was struck by the beauty in this unique form of worship. Being a very visual and creative person, I loved the idea. I started looking deeper and deeper into the idea, scouring ideas, how tos, and so on. I was intrigued.

Still, I was also apprehensive. I didn't know anyone else who did this kind of journaling, and had no idea where to begin. What did I need? What techniques were out there? How did I choose which verses to journal? What did I write? These were all questions that I found myself over-analyzing and fretting over before finally making that leap into journaling.

Sound familiar?

These are so often the sentiments that I hear from others- readers and friends alike- on the topic. Like myself those years ago, you are intrigued and WANT to begin, but just don't know the how! I've tried to help where I can, but I must admit I often found myself wishing there was some sort of comprehensive how-to that I could refer beginning journalers to to get them started.

Now, I am VERY excited to announce--- there finally is: the new A Workbook Guide To Bible Journaling by Shanna Noel and friends!


Written by Illustrated Faith founder Shanna Noel and her friends, A Workbook Guide to Bible Journaling is filled with fun techniques for painting, hand lettering, stickering, and stamping. There's also space to get messy with watercolors, stencils, washi tape, and more. Bible Journaling is an exciting, new way to engage with God's Word by connecting your faith with your creativity. You'll fall in love with your Bible all over again while drawing closer to God.

What Is Bible Journaling?"We are going to teach you the techniques behind Bible journaling but I want you to promise me right here and right now that you will remember the true heart behind it and use this book as a tool to tell those huge God stories in your life!" —Shanna Noel 

Where Do I Start?"I know most of us want to jump right into the creative part, but remember you are documenting what God is laying on your heart through the message of His Word, and sometimes that takes some time. I want you to pray about it and allow it to sink into your heart; don't just take things at face value." —Shanna Noel

I was recently given the chance to check out this new workbook for myself. Let's take a look at some of the great features you can expect:





  • Easy To Follow How-Tos. This workbook takes a look at a wide variety of Bible journaling techniques from creating backgrounds through various mediums, to using stickers, to creating ribbon clips... to name just a few. They tell you exactly what tools were used and how to recreate that style and make it your own. Beyond just the techniques though, I love that it gives us a great look into the WHY too. Why did they choose this verse? Why did they choose that wording, or those images? What is the idea behind it? Sometimes I feel as though that idea of where to start can be just as confusing as the journaling techniques themselves. From start to finish, each section shows us how the page comes to life.
  • Various Styles. When it comes to Bible journaling, there isn't really a one size fits all. We all have different ways that we like to do things. Some use very simple illustrations or hand lettering, others love to layer on the elements. That can make it tough when we're looking for ideas on how to journal. This book features pages by eight different women in the Illustrated Faith community, all with very unique styles. This not only gives us more inspiration, but reminds us to make it our own too. 
  • Stunning Images. Sometimes when I'm bored, I find myself heading to the Illustrated Faith Instagram to just browse through the images. I love the vibrant colors and beautiful pages I find there... and it is those same types of images that are found throughout this workbook. Even knowing how to do many of the techniques shown, I still found myself wanting to look through and take in the inspiration.
  • Practice Pages. Making that first mark in your new Bible can be intimidating, especially when using a technique you've not yet tried before. Throughout the workbook, you can find blank pages to practice the techniques you've learned about throughout! 
This workbook is an absolute must for anyone who is just getting started---or wanting to get started--- in Bible journaling. It is packed full with everything you need to know, handy tips and loads of inspiration. I must admit however, even as an experienced journaler, I found a lot of great tips and inspiration among the pages as well. I again am a visual person, so having this resource to look back on is such a great benefit. With it's spiral bounding, it's perfect to have open as a reference as you're working too. I cannot get enough, and am so excited to recommend it to everyone! 

A Workbook Guide to Bible Journaling is available NOW...and the first 600 orders will receive a free Illustrated Faith pen set ($7 value)! These are one of my personal journaling favorites, so hurry and grab the deal while it lasts.
