So here it is – Journaling 101: Step One

If You Can’t Simply Start… Just Start Simple

If your holding your breath not knowing if you really want to draw in your bible, take the first simple steps.

1- Buy colored pencils from the school supply section.
2- Start with any verse and gently highlight at a 45 degree angle.
3- Add tiny doodles
4- Expand from there !!

This is a wonderful way for people who may only have a narrow margin bible, to add color and love to their existing bible, while not interfering with readability.

    Thank you! I get so overwhelmed, thinking I need this HUGE block of time to journal. This can be done for all my favorite verses and new ones that speak to me. Then, when I do have a block of time, I can expand through lettering, drawing etc. I’m excited! ?

    I see a spot for another corner in the community! I have never doodled in my life and would love to learn. Could this eventually be another spot or does it get covered in the drawing corner?? I would love a project weekly to learn doodling! This is really a very inspirational post and such an easy way to get started.
