Sunday Musings - The Best Part of Teaching Bible Journaling Classes

As I mentioned in last Sunday's post, I've spent time recently completing pages in the Bibles I use for demonstrations in my Illustrated Bible Journaling Workshops. The best part of this process is getting to spend lots of time in the Word. I take time to read the scriptures on the pages I'm completing, then work on the page as I contemplate the journaling and illustrations. Here's just a sample of some of the pages I completed this past week in the Bible we use for display at Personal Scrapbook.

Leviticus 1-4 ~ An aroma pleasing to the Lord.

2 Timothy 1:9 ~ He has called us to a holy life.

2 Kings 19:15-19 ~ You alone are God.

Psalm 57:3 ~ God sends forth His love.

Psalm 9:1 ~ I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart.

Lovely to see how you've done each of these.

Every time I see your tabbed Bible I think it is such a great idea. I really need to do it...
