Journaling + a Giveaway


Recently, I've learned that I am someone who needs to write everything down. I've always known that I'm a listmaker. I need to get all of my to-dos out on paper. I can't grocery shop without a written list, and I operate best with a calendar on the wall in my kitchen. But only recently have I realized the importance of journaling in my life. I need to write out my thoughts, prayers, dreams, and goals. I feel SO much better when I can scribble out the words to my feelings. It is therapeutic for me, and it helps me to process whatever highs and lows I am going through.

Last month, a group of gals from church and I formed a Bible study. The focus is on being still in the Lord, and we are doing a lot of journaling and creative things. It was the push that I needed to start journaling on a regular basis. During our last meeting, we made bookmarks with one word that we felt God calling us to. I chose "freely" from The Message's paraphrase of Jesus' words in Matthew 11. 

"Come to me. Get away with me, and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me, and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."

I love those verses! And I especially love the idea of living freely with Jesus.

Soon after I started into this Bible study, I was offered a chance to review a pretty Bible Journaling Kit from Ellie Claire. With pages of stickers and colored pencils and a cute green carrying case, I knew it would be perfect for my new journaling hobby.



With this kit, you can create a work of art on the pages of your Bible. I love the colorful tab stickers to mark encouraging verses that speak to your heart.


The kit comes with:

·         4 sheets of alphabet stickers
·         24 tab stickers
·         8 colored pencil twists
·         1 journaling pen
