Introducing the New Illustrating Bible: Psalms and Proverbs!

**I received a complimentary copy of Illustrating Bible: Psalms and Proverbs as a member of the Dayspring Bible Journaling Launch Team. Post contains affiliate links. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

When I first started Bible journaling over four years ago, the idea of filling a Bible seemed so far away. Bibles are huge! How could I ever fill one up!? And yet, with each passing year, I find myself beginning a new Bible, the previous overflowing from use.

No, I've never actually filled a Bible in it's entirety. There are always many blank pages left behind, but it reaches a point that every verse I flip to to journal has already had it's pages filled. Sure, there may be plenty of pages left open... but it is when I reach that point that I realize it's time to start with a blank slate and move onto the next one.

No matter how I choose my journaling entries--- be it journaling topically, following a 100 Days journal, journaling based upon sermons I've heard or Bible studies I've partaken in, I have found that there are two books in my Bible that fill up first each and every time.

Psalms and Proverbs!

These two books are so filled with great imagery and verses for each and every situation life throws at us. They also tend to be favorites for so many of us for those reasons alone. Oftentimes when people are stuck on where to start journaling, I will suggest Psalms as an ideal place to start. It only makes sense that they fill up faster than any other, right?

So, I am BEYOND excited to share the newest Illustrating Bible: Psalms and Proverbs! Take a look:

If you already love the Illustrating Bible, you can expect the same great features:

  • Larger Margins for more room for journaling and artwork. 
  • Spiral binding for a flat work surface
  • Thicker pages better suited for a variety of art journaling mediums
The Psalms and Proverbs version will also feature some of the new features we loved about Luke:

  • NIV Translation
  • Larger 12 point font for easier readability
  • More compact size for easier portability (Note: This one is thicker than Luke, but still much smaller in size than the full Illustrating Bible.)
  • Lower price point ($28.99) making it more affordable for all budgets
I was thrilled when I learned that Psalms and Proverbs were to be the next books introduced in this series, as they truly are the ideal option. These books are such journaling friendly options, which makes this an even better option for those who are wanting to dip their toes in before investing in the full thing! Us experienced journalers will also love that we are able to journal more of these favorites without having to start a completely new Bible! And this stunning coral cover!? I LOVE it!
