Hang around me for a bit and you will hear me share how important my daily Quiet Time is. How God brought me to my knees to the point that I didn’t have a choice but to admit my daily need of Him. I share my redemptive story in my free eBook A Quiet Time, Worth the Time.
Also included in the eBook is a plan that I use during my devo time; a break down of how I study the Bible, my prayer time, and how I use a Prayer Journal.
Several of you have messaged me sharing how much you have appreciated the ideas and how you have implemented them into your own life.
Today, I want to share another idea to help you break down, understand, and apply what you read in the Scriptures during your Quiet Time.
1. Journaling Bible
Journaling Bibles have become very popular in the last couple years as more people are discovering the joy of journaling and drawing through the Scriptures. Lines are drawn on the sides of the Journaling Bible to provide space as you write notes, meaning of words, and prayers. Also the paper is thicker making is perfect for colored pens.
One example is the new NIV Journaling Bible for Girls by Zondervan (available in turquoise or pink). Because of the space given for journaling lines, this Bible does not include commentary. Only footnotes are provided.
2. Journaling Kit
What better to add to your journaling time than coloring pencils and stickers? If you have ever done a Kay Arthur Bible study, you know how helpful adding colors can be.
Check out this fun Bible Journaling Kit set from Ellie Claire.
- 4 sheets of word stickers
- 4 sheets of alphabet stickers
- 24 tab stickers
- 8 twist colored pencils
- 1 journaling pen
- a pouch to hold the supplies
- a ruled page protector mat with tracing lines
It is my pray that our children will fall in love with the Word. As soon as I saw this Bible and journaling kit, I immediately thought of our Sweet Pea (age 10). She loves to write, draw, and decorate and I believe this set will make a wonderful Christmas gift for our growing girl as she learns to dig into the Word for wisdom, truth, and encouragement!
