bible journaling
I love bible journaling!  At first, I was journaling only in my personal time with God but my kids kept asking me if they could help or draw a picture.  So I decided to make it more of a family learning experience.  I’m glad I did.  As they get older it will make this bible even more special.  It’s teaching my little one how to stay in the lines when coloring.  It’s opening up their imagination while reading the word.  It’s drawing us closer and teaching biblical principles in a fun way. Here’s a few of my favorite supplies:
1- Crossway Journaling Bible
2- Micron pen set
3- Accu-gel bible highlighter
We start by reading a bible chapter.  I take turns reading with my child that’s old enough to read.  As we read I tell them to picture the words in their mind.  At the end I ask them what they saw or would like to journal.  It’s amazing the things they say.  We practice drawing on scrap paper then transfer it to the journaling margin.  I let them draw and color the aspects they saw.  Here’s a few examples we’ve done so far.

  1. We used to keep a family journal which we all worked on together before bed. It’s something we’ve let go of as life got crazier but this makes me want to get back into it! Thanks for sharing with #BeyondMommyingSiS

    You are welcome. We have enjoyed it. I’m glad I could help.

  3. Never thought of this. I love it! My children are still little though, 2 years and the other is 8 months. When do you think would be a good time to start this as a family?

    My youngest is 3. I let her color what her older sister (age 10) has drawn. I keep a close eye on her to try to keep her in the lines. You could do little things with them like trace their hand at different ages or let them give you an idea to draw once you’ve read the scripture. Or plan ahead and know what you’re going to draw before reading the scripture. Then draw while reading. This would be fascinating for little ones.
