Knowing the heart of God will put you on the fast track to life transformation.
I had quit trying to engage God’s Word on my own. Like an infant expecting to be fed by someone else I only opened my Bible on Sunday at church. I’d sit there waiting for the Pastor to feed me the Word. My Bible would then sit on a shelf, neglected and dusty for the next six days. Can you relate?
When we neglect to open God’s Word, we forfeit the benefits of a full, intimate relationship with Him.
I forfeited the full benefits of KNOWING God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I was spiritually malnourished, until I started writing in my Bible and the Word made it’s way deep into my heart and mind.
Bible Journaling has helped me connect with, apply, and remember God’s Word in a personal way.
My journaling Bible has become a sort of spiritual diary, #MyBibleMyDiary, and it goes with me just about everywhere I go. It has traveled with me on family vacations up and down the East Coast, and has even been with me in the mission fields of Peru.
The Bible is God’s love letter to me. My Journaling Bible is my response to Him.
Journaling in your Bible will give you a place to document what God is revealing to you as you spend time in His Word. Even if your only response is, “thank you”. It could help serve as a reminder that you are loved, approved, chosen and purposed.
Here are three ways Bible Journaling can help you in your spiritual growth:
- You can document your relationship with Jesus as you see His love for humanity and His purpose played out throughout scriptures.
- You can practice writing more intentional prayers, purpose driven prayers like Jesus prayed in John 17.
- Your journaling Bible will give you a place to record all of your ah-ha moments.

My hope in sharing and teaching my journaling process is simple; I hope to encourage you to engage God’s word on a creative level, to help you explore your creative side, and give you the tools you’ll need to discover the truth about who God is and who He says you are SO THAT you can live out your purpose ANCHORED to the truth and hope of Jesus.
