Start the year off right by making your time in the Word a priority with Bible study and Bible journaling. Take this January Bible journaling challenge now.
First I want to start out by sending a HUGE Happy New Year’s to you and your family!! There is something about the beginning of a new year that feels so refreshing and rejuvenating. Whether you believe in New Year’s resolutions or not, this time of year is great to really start afresh and set some real goals for yourself. I love to, in a way, reset myself when it comes to certain areas of my life. One of those priority areas in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ and studying the Word.
You all know how much I love Bible journaling and how much it has changed my life. I don’t mean to sound like a broken record; I am just that passionate about it. Because I know the difference and impact it has made on my life, I want others to be able to experience the same that I have. That is why I am SUPER excited to announce my brand new MONTHLY CHALLENGE to help guide you along your own Bible journaling adventure this year.
January Bible Journaling Challenge
Here’s how it works:
Each month I will have a verse or passage of scripture designated for each week of that month for you to use as a guide in Bible journaling that week. You will illustrate the verse in your own journaling Bible or even just a journal. Then be sure to share your entry with all of us so that we can all gain inspiration from each other but also have accountability with staying in the Word.
You can share the entry on instagram (or any other social media site as well) each month using the designated hashtag and tagging me in the post, @the_southern_couture. This month is #JanBJChallenge and then of course each month will be the same with the change of the month at the beginning. When you share on instagram, I will be picking entries to share on my own account as well so that others can see them too.
Below you will find this month’s weekly challenge that you can PRINT HERE. I made the printable in the size of a business card so that it would be small enough to attach inside your Bible or journal.
When I started thinking on this idea and how we could make our study time more of a priority, I felt that a weekly challange would be best. I do recommend spending time in the Word everyday, but realistically not everyone may be able to illustrate their study time daily. Weekly entries seems much more doable and attainable.
Now one last thing that I want to say to encourage you. DO NOT feel like you have failed or “messed up” if you decide to take this challenge and then aren’t able to participate every week. Life happens and we all know that. This isn’t homework that you HAVE to complete. I simply want this challenge to be a fun and encouraging way for you to spend more time in the Word while also enjoying something you love. That’s is. Bottom line.
This is my entry for week 1 that actually was inspired by the current Bible study I am doing from The Daily Grace Co. which I highly recommend. Start out with the “How to Study the Bible” devotional. You will not be disappointed.
If you are new to Bible journaling and don’t know where to start, check out more Bible journaling tutorials HERE. And if you really want to take your learning to the next level then be sure to check out my eBook, Adventures in Bible Journaling: An Extensive Beginner’s Guide to Art and Bible Journaling, that is full of information and step-by-step tutorials. You can even get videos to make it even easier.
Now grab yourself a warm cup of coffee and spend some time in the word really studying the verse or passages for this week. Enjoy illustrating each one and the growth of your relationship with Jesus Christ. Don’t forget to print your card HERE and to share with all of us once you are done. I can’t wait to see what you come up with. And the greatest of these is love,
