    FREE Saved by Grace Online Bible Journaling Conference

    I am SO thrilled to be sharing again at this year’s Bible Journaling Ministries (BJM) online journaling conference!  Saved by Grace is the theme this year and it could not be more appropriate.  It is SO important to remember that we are saved by God’s grace so that we can extend that grace to others. In my session, Saved by Grace: SOZO – Our Identity in Christ, I will discuss some of the many things that are included in our salvation through Jesus Christ.  There are so many things that I fear a lot of Christians do not know are included in their salvation and are meant to be used/walked…

    Waymaker

    Awhile back I shared in the Journey through the Bible Facebook groups via an evening live.  It was my honor and privilege to share with this talented group of ladies and create a page in my Illustrating Bible using my Waymaker printable at the same time.   If you do not know me, you may not be aware that I lost my first daughter when I was 24w 2d pregnant.  Faith will always be my first daughter and I can’t wait for the day when we’ll be together again in Heaven.  I created this page and shared my story of Faith during this session.   When Faith died, a piece…

    November Devotional Feature

    Jesus, Coffee & Me – by Joy Howard Psalms 46:1-3“God is our refuge and strength…” Every day when I awake I have my time with God, my Bible, and my coffee. I find this is the best way to start my day. I find my refuge and strength for each day, in His Word. Spending time in God’s word has become my favorite thing to do. From coming from disliking of reading… to reading the Bible with love and excitement now! I’ve learned a lot, and I am learning so much, because of Bible journaling. I can now spend time reading the Bible, visualizing the words and the stories, then I…

    October 2019 Devotional Feature

    by Eliza Hall I always begin my journaling with a simple prayer, “Lord let people see you and less of me and wherever my heart needs healing, let that come from your word of life.” I never choose a scripture in vain but there is always a reason behind the scripture. I start by examining myself to see if I have demonstrated the love of God towards myself and others. I kept hearing the words “Deliver me” so I typed in the word “deliver” into my bible app and Psalm 120 came up. “In my distress, I cried to the LORD, And He heard me. Deliver my soul, O LORD,…
