Back in January I received my first journaling Bible for my birthday from my sweet friend Shelby. I fell in love immediately.
I have since learned that Bible journaling is a whole thing — who knew? You can use the margins for basic written notes, or you can get super creative with illustrations and pretty script inspired by what you’ve studied. It’s a new way to dive into truths you come across, and really commit them to memory.
I definitely haven’t used my new Bible to it’s full potential yet, but I’m excited to see those margins fill up over the years.
And can you believe how pretty that outer cover is?? Just picture like 16 heart eye emojis here.
I have two other Bibles that I’ve been using recently: the NIV Women’s Bible and the Beautiful Word Bible.
The NIV Women’s Bible features devotions throughout from women like Shauna Niequist, a favorite author of mine. And since I love words, I’m all about getting extra insight as I read certain passages. This makes a great study Bible for digging a little deeper.
A copy of the Beautiful Word Bible was also gifted to me to try out, and I have to say, it really is beautiful. As you flip through you’ll see verses highlighted in the margins in pretty script or with accompanying illustrations. (This version is NIV, but it’s also available for purchase in KJV and NKJV.)
Zondervan Publishing was gracious enough to allow me to give away a copy of the Beautiful Word Bible to one of my readers! If you already have a Bible that you love to study from, this would make a really amazing gift for a girlfriend.
