Bible Journaling, Devo kits, Journaling with Brent

How He Loves Us

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I took a short trip to visit family. For the trip, I grabbed this amazing Devo kit from Illustrated Faith and DaySpring

How He Loves Us

This really helped me pack supplies without taking my entire craft space (which I’ve been known to attempt πŸ˜‰). I have a small bag (older Thirty-One bag) I use for taking my Bible journaling on the road.

You can watch me unpack my bag on Periscope (2nd half of the scope) here: What’s in my bag?

What I didn’t plan or expect was sharing this devo with my sweet husband, Brent.

It happened naturally as we drove to our destination. I offered to read aloud and he said he’d enjoy that. I asked if he wanted to do a page and he thought he like to try it.

At any point if he had said, “No,” I would have been ok because I wasn’t trying to get him to like what I enjoy.

But he surprised me and enjoyed it! He has completed two pages and wants to do more.

He really loves the enamel hearts and does this silly dance for them πŸ˜‚


So, here’s my advice for having loved ones journal with you (for what it’s worth). Just ask .

Neither of my daughters are interested in Bible Journaling and that’s ok. I need to respect their relationship with the Lord and not force them to do what I do. Or be upset that they don’t want join me. Their decision has nothing to do with me, but everything to do with how He crafted them to respond to Him.

Bottom line- I’ll ask, I’ll teach and I’ll enjoy every person who wants to try Bible journaling. πŸ’œ
