I had the privilege of reviewing three elegantly crafted journals from Ellie Claire Gifts, and I was overwhelmed with the unique beauty found on each page. You definitely need to order your own so you can see exactly what I'm talking about! Do you journal? Maybe you don't, but you have a friend or loved one that does.....you won't find a better quality journal anywhere else. From the ornate cover and binding, to the beautifully detailed pages; you will fall in love from the word "go!"
The Illustrated Word An Illuminated Bible Coloring Journal
"Just as medieval monks brought Scripture to life through intricate handwritten and illustrated manuscripts hundreds of years ago, you can now create your own keepsake to be treasured for years to come. Forty illustrations have been recreated as line drawing to color. Full-color illustrations from the archives of the Museum of the Bible
make this journal a true masterpiece." - back cover
Take a look at this fantastic color page!! I was able to incorporate the use of this journal during my morning devotional time. I love the fact that the color pages highlight different Bible references that I was able to use as memory verses. I would meditate on the verse as I colored each page. You are never too old to memorize scripture. Whether you grew up in church memorizing scripture, or you just began your relationship with Him today....memorizing the Word of God is a great way to grow and mature in your walk with God. The journal page on the opposite side is good for notes and other verses that is brought to your mind during your devotion time.

What a beautiful journal this is!! The cover is colorful, fun, and full of texture. There is a pen loop on the spine that holds a pen or marker in place for the next time you visit this journal. Each page is nice and thick and allows you to use different types of coloring mediums to fill the pages.
I found that this journal is designed in such a way that it helps you slow down and spend some quiet time with the Word of God as you incorporate hand-lettering into your devotional time. This journal is a safe space for you to practice you lettering skills in various different styles. Remember that God's Word never returns void.
