30 Days In The Word
#BibleJournalingChallenge August 3rd-September 2nd

Getting into the Word, meditating on it, letting it permeate our souls – that’s what this is about. An outward sign of our inward reflection, transformation, and worship.

For 1 month you will pledge to read the Word everyday (any book) and also to create one piece of #biblejournaling worship art each of the 4 weeks. Along the way we will share our art and what God has laid on our hearts.

I invite you to submit 1 photo of your scripture/worship art and a blurb (150 words or less) describing why you chose a particular portion of scripture. To be published in a blog post during September – following the challenge.
Add your works and a description to the Pinterest board I’ve set up exclusively for the Challenge https://www.pinterest.com/Geaney/30-days-in-the-word-bible-journaling-challenge/
Tweet them with the hashtag #huesoffaith #biblejournalingchallenge

What is bible journaling? This Pinterest board will give an idea ~ http://www.pinterest.com/Geaney/bible-journaling/


  • A journaling bible or a bible you are willing to mark in. I chose the ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (available at Family Christian).
  • #2 Pencil
  • Pens – many bible journaling blogs suggest micron pens.
  • Colored pencils or twistable crayons


I am Women’s Ministry minded and from the moment I first learned about bible art journaling it immediately struck me as something that could be done in fellowship with other believers. In addition to the online challenge, I will be hosting a group of women from my church to my house during the month of August. My vision for this event is simple – it will be a time of thanksgiving and praise. I am expecting the women to come with hearts that have been softened by their time in the scriptures. As they feel led, I would like them to share a journal entry and why the portion of scripture they selected to illustrate was so important to them. These will serve as mini-devotionals.

Of course, their will also be food (we are Southerners) and a time of prayer.

For my bible journaling party I will be providing the art supplies. I wouldn’t want to preclude anyone from an evening of worship due to financial constraints. Women are welcome to arrive with ideas or sketches that they want to color at the party.

A local craft store has offered a number of coupons this summer for percentages off your entire purchase. I bought items based off of suggestions shared by other bible journaling “professionals.” -Watercolor pencils -Watercolor paints -Pastels -Stencils -tracing paper -washi tape
While I am not an artist, I am a crafter. I was able to raid my craft closet for stamps, ink, a paper cutter, gel pens, scissors, and the like.
CONFESSION: I’ve never scrapbooked in my life. Layouts, hand lettering, and doodling is uncharted territory. Therefore, a visit to my local library was in order. I **love** my library!


Friendship Day is August 2nd

A journaling bible would make a great gift and would be a fabulous way for friends to grow together in their faith.

“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”

Proverbs 27:17

    I’m looking for ways to get excited about Scripture again. Since I consider myself creative, I thought this was a cool idea. I also like the idea of doing this in a group, maybe even something similar to those find-raising paint nights.
