For a while now, I have been enamored with Bible Journaling. It’s beautiful, artistic, and inspiring.
After I ran across Brad Jackman’s wide margined scriptures, I realized I could make Bible journaling and Book of Mormon Journaling a reality.
I printed double-sided pages of the entire Book of Mormon. I then took my pages to Staples and had them spiral bind it, and add a plastic front and back.
It cost about $12 between all three binding jobs.
It was super exciting to finally get started!
My first day, I tried a little harder to look more like Bible journaling.
But it didn’t take long before I mostly turned that extra space into a note taking space.
I still love the Bible journaling look, but it was more functional for me to use the margins for comments, questions, and thoughts.
I have been using the wide margins for the last several months, and it has been such a nice way to document my notes! I used to write in a separate scripture journal, but now I can have my notes right beside the verses that they refer to.
I also have plenty of room for taking notes the next few times I read through!
Try it out for yourself! Get more creative and Bible-journal-y if you want, but recognize that the system also has to work for you.
It’s a little bit of an up-front investment, but it’s worth it for how long you can re-use it.
Some days I get more artsy…
And other days I just take notes.
I love having the wide margined scriptures!
