This week's Bible Journaling verse was such a blessing to my heart! I love how the design of the heart turned out for sure. The mouth... not so sure but it was still a very fun verse to play with. But... of course... it was about so much more than the art! At first, it caused me to examine my heart and think about my words and to be honest... I was convicted in a couple of areas. One was gossip... and the other... as always... was about how I talk to myself. Both are ugly. Both are hurtful. But conviction is good... because now I am being more attentive to both. Oh does the mouth ever speak! But even though this verse very much applies to my life today... and the constant challenge it is to keep an ear to the words I speak both to myself and to others... the truth is that as I pondered this verse... my heart was filled with gratitude. It reminded me from whence I've come and how much God has changed my heart and my words. When I tell people about the kind of words that came out of my mouth before... Continue reading

I so agree that goals are good as long as we remember to give ourselves grace when we miss the mark! :-)

Good to see you here Deb!! I've missed blogging too and hanging out with good friends like you! I'm hoping to be more consistent. I just know when the Market starts back up it's a little more challenging but I'm going to try for sure!! Hugs...

One great thing about journaling is it doesn't have to be everyday so you don't have to feel overwhemed... just do it whenever you have a few minutes... as long as you're enjoying it!!

I know... I can be such a dreamer! We'll see how God's plans line up with mine... whichever way I will trust in Him!

Some of you who follow me on FB have requested I illustrate a Bible you can buy. Oh my... I love you my friends... but that request just makes me chuckle! Do you know how many pages there are in just the New Testament? It would sure be a fun and creative project but I'm not sure I will live that long. LOL! But... you've also requested Bookmarks... and that one I can do... and did!! So here ya go... my first set of four Bible Journal Bookmarks and all from the book of Luke... available here! You can print as many as you like for personal or ministry use. You can also adhere them to your own ESV Journal Bible for a perfect fit... or for scrapbooking or in your Documented Faith journal. I've also redrawn them as "Color Your Own" Bookmarks for those of you who would like to add your own personal touch of color! Also great for the kiddos to color and reflect on God's Word as well... and maybe even give as gifts to their friends, family or teachers. You can find these here. Hope you enjoy them... and God bless! Continue reading

Good morning! The response to my FB posts about my #BibleJournaling and my newly found #IllustratedFaith community has been so encouraging! Lots of love and also a few repeated questions... so I promised that this morning I would share a little of my Bible Journaling journey with you and the supplies I use... so here we are. To be honest... I've been doodling and note-taking in my Bible for as long as I can remember... it just didn't have a name. When I saw a few months ago where Shanna Noel was calling it #IllustratedFaith... I seriously think my heart leapt! A perfect name for it! Of course, my early Bible Journaling was much more random... sometimes the highlights from Sundays sermon... other times specific thoughts that the Lord gave me as I was reflecting on His Word... sometimes just a doodle. Today... with my new Journaling Bible in hand... I read two pages at a time while praying and asking the Lord to speak to my heart. That verse that stands out above all others is the one I choose to design and hand-letter. The joy of doing it this way for me is being able to meditate and... Continue reading

You are welcome Sharon... and thank you for your kind words. I'm with you on the consistency thing... it's an issue for me too... but this could just be our year to overcome!

Thank you Sharon... I love the type of journaling you're doing... I used to only have a diary style journal and still do... especially when I'm trying to work through something or just recording those memorable moments. I'm with you on the healthier us... we can do it... in the Lord! Amen!

A CLEAN SLATE... A NEW JOURNEY... For as long as I can remember I have loved celebrating the new year. Maybe it's because the whole idea of new beginnings and fresh starts has been so important in my life. I've recently had reason to look back prior to this last year and reflect on some huge turning point moments in my past... where God has turned the page of my life story and begun a new chapter.. and I've been greatly inspired and encouraged by these memories. Our God truly is a God of second chances and clean slates and I've been reminded, once again, that God's mercies are new every morning... and every moment of every day... we just need to be willing to embrace them. As we walk into this new year, we have no idea what awaits us... and personally, I'm believing God has something wonderful in store... for me... and for you! I'm looking forward to it... and I hope you are too. So let the journey begin 2015... a new adventure is about to unfold! FREE "LET THE JOURNEY BEGIN" DOWNLOAD... One of my prayers for this year is to be a greater blessing and... Continue reading

Sometimes I feel like that's what my life is all about... catching up! But I'm believing better to catch up on ocassion than not stay in touch at all. Hope you agree! I know it's not true for the entire country... but for us here in the Pacific Northwest... spring has sprung! Flowering trees just have a way of making the heart happy, don't they? And there's just something about spring that makes me feel more creative... that sense of new life I'm sure! And it's just not the trees that are blooming... but daffodils and pansies are too! I recently put this little collection of pansy art together as a digital download to celebrate spring and remind us that if we sow faith in God in whatever our circumstances, we are sure to reap the blessings of His goodness and grace! It's available here on Etsy as an instant download! I thought this collection might be helpful for creating promotional materials or decorating for a spring tea or garden party... or for card making or scrapbooking too! Part of the reason it's been challenging to keep up with all the many forms of social media is that the Portland... Continue reading
