Have you ever heard of a journaling Bible? I had, but the only journaling Bibles I had seen involved simply writing in the margins and that's something I already do. It wasn't all that exciting.
Then I realized folks were actually creating art in the margins of their Bibles with how hymns or verses moved them.
Wha-bam! There you have it.
A journaling Bible has major room in the margins aka a notetaker's dream but not only is there room for notes but you can create masterpieces in those margins.
I first discovered this through Valerie Wiener's Instagram:

Isn't that beautiful?
She led me to see other folks' Instagrams and Facebook feeds.

Check out Shanna's blog to enter the giveaway, otherwise you can find Writing in the Margins at Amazon.
If you haven't seen my Instagram feed lately, I've been cramming it with giveaways. I apologize in advance and I promise to beautify it in the very near future :) I just really want to start the Erskine baby stock right this minute...I can't help it :P
Back to the Journaling Bible!
I also joined a Facebook Journaling Bible group which is filled to the brim with beautiful inspiration.
I joined and it felt like God was blessing me as soon as I hit that "join" button.
This picture was posted by the group moderator (and awesome artist) Shanna Noel shortly after I became a member of the group.
The #travelingbible will basically be a gorgeous, inspiring Bible that will be carried across the globe.
My favorite book in the Bible is Hebrews and I cannot wait to add some art in those margins :)
Speaking of which, as soon as I saw Valerie's gorgeous newsfeed filling with colorful margins, I did a total impulse buy and bought one. It got lost in the mail (THE HORROR) but Amazon, being amazing as always, quickly resent a new one. I'll hopefully have it this Tuesday and it will be perfect timing for my upgrade sequence to a crew commander. Please pray over me and send me well wishes!
