I was so excited to have the opportunity to review this amazing Bible Journaling Kit! As soon as I popped open the box, it was evident that my lack of experience was not going to be a hindrance to me. I have several friends that have been dabbling around with Bible Journaling for about a year now and I have watched them wishing that I had the talent, know-how, and tools to experience the scriptures in such a unique way.
What you receive with this kit is definitely something that will "wet your whistle" so to speak.
You will receive:
· 4 sheets of word stickers
· 4 sheets of alphabet stickers
· 24 tab stickers
· 8 colored pencil twists
· 1 journaling pen
· 1 pouch with adjustable strap to fit Bibles of all sizes· 1 ruled page protector mat with tracing lines
What I love about this kit is that it gave me everything I needed to start testing the waters. Now, don't get me wrong, I was not an instant success, but I was able to create works of art on the pages of my favorite Bible. The colored twisting pencils allow you to draw, color, or journal your thoughts, dreams, and prayers as you spend time in your quiet time. You are also able to use the same pencils to highlight your favorite verses or the encouragements that speak to your heart.
Most of all let me just say, I love the stickers!! Yes, I am 46 and I said that I love stickers! Who wouldn't? Look at them! The stickers are clear except for the font, so you can see how nicely they look on the pages of my Bible. Now, I went a little unconventional. I don't have a journaling Bible. I kept putting off giving it a try apparently waiting for the day that I would force myself to go and buy a special Bible for it. So in the end, I just never got started. So I decided instead that it would be alright if I just used my favorite Bible instead. That would give me a little time to work out all the kinks before using it in a special Bible.
As you can see by the few pictures that I find myself willing to share despite my lack of talent. . .I relied heavily on the stickers. But the bottom line is, this is all about your time with God. It doesn't have to look like anyone else's work. This is just an outlet of what God is speaking to you as you read His Word. That is so wonderful.
Like I said, I have a few friends that have been journaling for over a year or so, and I always thought that I had to try to do everything just like them, but the more that I utilized this fun kit, the more that God spoke to me through this unique outlet during my quiet times with Him.
The best part is that you can win your own kit for free by clicking HERE!
