Hello and Happy Monday!

I am so honored to be a guest blogger today on Shanna Noel's Illustrated Faith blog!  If you don't know who she is let me tell you a little bit about her...

Shanna is an amazing lady with a heart for the Lord and His word!  She started the "Journaling Bible Community" on Facebook and I encourage you to go check it out.  It's a wonderful community of believers who have taken writing/journaling in your bible to a whole new level.  To back track a little…  I started noticing this kind of "art" on Pinterest at the beginning of this year.  I was just IN LOVE with it the minute I saw this…  In fact here is the first photo of what I saw on Pinterest:

 

It just got my attention like nothing has in a long time!  I knew the minute I saw this I wanted to find out more and start doing this as well!  So I did a little more digging and found this whole new world of bible journaling!  I found the community on FB that Shanna started and I instantly wanted to be a part of it.  I joined when there were around 200+ people in the group and now I think it is well over 5,000 in our group on FB!  It has really taken off and opened up so many doors for people to draw closer to the word AND use their God given talents at the same time.

So about a month ago Shanna asked me if I would guest blog for her and I was SO blown away by that.  I haven't really done as much bible journaling as I would like to because of my busy life and health issues I've been dealing with.  But I said YES immediately and prayed that I would know what to talk about and share from my bible.

I really felt like I wanted to share about how I came to find out about this creative expression in our bibles and wanted to share what my plans are for this in the future...

So please check out her blog and let me know what you think!  We would LOVE for you to join us on this journey of falling back in love with the WORD and sharing our thoughts, prayers, devotions and anything else that comes to our heart… IN our bibles!

Here are some of the pages in my bible that I've created.  You can find MANY more pages and SO much inspiration on the Pinterest Board called Illustrated Faith

There are SO many different levels of bible journaling and it really doesn't matter what your style is. It's not about showing others how talented you are or what you can do artistically, but it needs to be something that comes from your heart and whatever that expression is will be perfect in the eyes of the Lord.  I will share a few tips on how to paint on the thin bible paper, what kind of bibles works best for this and will list some of the products I like to use later on this week...

Have a GREAT Monday everyone!  I will be back on here tomorrow sharing my Love, Tuesday this week and it will be about this amazing weekend my hubby and I just had in Los Angeles...
