My Adventures In Bible Journaling

Hey guys! I hope your weekend is going well…

I thought that you all might like to see some pictures of my Bible journaling pages, tips + tricks, and my overall thoughts on Bible journaling. So, every weekend, I will write on one of these topics. Comment below if you have a question you would like answered!

My Adventures In Bible Journaling


First off, here is a page that I finished a few days ago, which corresponded with my 1 Corinthians 1 devotional:

Bible journaling page #1I journaled 1 Corinthians 1:7 –  “…so that you are not lacking in any gift.”

For this pages, I basically painted a watercolor background of blue + purple, then used some (blue) scrapbooking letter stickers I had lying around. The “in” word I simply cut out of my floral washi tape.

Now, what I love about this page is that I experimented with a new way to make letters for the “lacking” and “any” words. I wanted to share it with you guys, since it might be helpful in saving money + creating your own customized letters! So, here it is,

,h2>Bible journaling hack #1:

Trace the outline of a letter from your used sticker sheet to emboss its outline onto a paper of your choice. Then, simply cut around the imprinted outline, and you have a brand new letter!

I have started using this hack myself quite a lot, since I have a limited supply of stickers! 😛


This page is one that I completed a while ago:

Bible journaling page#2Psalm 119: 42 “…then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me, for I trust in your word.”

I think this was the first time that I painted the whole page with watercolor. It’s a pretty simple page, I just used letter stickers, pens to draw my own, and my trusty Bible journaling hack #1 🙂

I decided to journal this verse, because a few days before I had received some discouraging words from someone, and it had really made me upset and frustrated. That night, I took out my Bible and happened upon this verse! I was so encouraged when it said, “for I trust in your word”, because it’s true!

Another hack that I use a lot (maybe because I am a writer??) is one that isn’t really my idea – I first learned about it in an Illustrated Faith video –  but I thought I would share it with you just in case you hadn’t seen it yet.

Hack #2:

Use a journaling card of your choice and write your thoughts or prayers on the back, then use washi tape to make it into a flap on your page. That way, it is a pretty embellishment on the front, and a secret journal entry on the back!

As you can see, I used the “You Rock” card for this hack!


This next page is one of my favorites:

Bible journaling page #3I journaled a verse that we had discussed in church, 2 Corinthians 3:17, “…and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

In this page, I experimented with painting rosettes on a blank sheet of paper, and cutting them out to paste onto my Bible entry. It worked out nicely. I also created the word “Christ” by painting around the letters, resulting in cream letters, instead of pink.


That’s it for now! I hope you guys enjoyed it 🙂 Let me know if you all have any questions.
