All through high school I used a wide margin Bible – those wide margins are full of stories, thoughts, prayers…life. It is probably the only thing from high school that I own that I consider valuable. One of these days I might have a high schooler that will find it fun to read my thoughts from that season of life. Who knows, but that would be fun to share together.
Anyway…it has been a long time since I’ve had extra room in my Bible for anything other than underlining. Recently an email led to a reminder of how much I loved filling my Bible with more than just lines under words. After a few google searches, it turns out Bible journaling is a thing now….and I found myself the perfect new Bible for a new season of life.
I’m playing with colored pencils and watercolors again. I’m way out of practice, but I have visions of a Bible filled with color and words – something to pass down to my kids one day. For now, I am taking the time to read slow and really contemplate and color outside the lines. And it has been so good.
Now I want to practice my hand lettering skills. It will be fun to bring out the text along with sketches in the margins….so I was wondering if any of you had any hand lettering recommendations? Any books, workshops or classes you would recommend?
