Journaling Bible Giveaway

Please note this giveaway is now closed.  The winner is Libby McCarty!  Congratulations Libby! πŸ™‚

As some of you know from my posts on Instagram, I started Bible journaling awhile ago.  I’ve always been someone who highlights and takes notes right on the pages of her Bible, so the idea of adding art to those notes appeals to me.  The movement is called Illustrated Faith and you can google it or search #illustratedfaith on Instagram to see more about it. Here are a few examples of what Bible journaling might look like.  

Isn’t that a fun way to get into the Word more?  I think it would be especially effective for young women.  And even though I’m not a young girl, based on my art supply and washi tape collection, you might think otherwise.  Now I get to put those crafty items to good use!
I was so excited to get started with my own journaling Bible, so I searched online everywhere. I’m not sure if it had to do with the Lenten season, but so many were sold out online.  I found two contenders at Christianbook.com.  The first one – the one I’m giving away – was too small for my taste.  I think it is the same one that is in the pictures above, so you can see there’s lots of room for doodles, but the font seemed small.  Also, this Bible is almost square and I’m used to my old, rectangular Bible.   
In case you’re interested, I’m keeping the red one, which is a single column Bible.  The font is actually the same size, but it seems darker and easier for me to read.  The Bible itself is also a little bigger, which I prefer.  
I’d rather give this Bible to someone than return it, so if you’d be interested in the black journaling Bible (brand new, never written in), just leave a comment on this blog post or use the Rafflecopter widget. I will announce the winner on Thursday, April 9.

  1. I don't think my comment posted. I'm sorry if it's a duplicate. This has been on my wishlist for some time and I'd love to win! How sweet of you to give it away instead of returning.

  2. I would love to have this Bible. I did not read what kind it was? I do prefer a King James Bible and I always memorize verses from King James over any thing else out there.

  3. Thanks for this giveaway – I'd love a new bible. The one I have but haven't used in years is the one I received for my first communion. Definitely time for an "adult" one.

  4. I've recently been very interested in trying this! After 2 kids and endless excuses for letting my faith get pushed down on the priority list, this would be a great way to "get back into it" πŸ™‚

  5. As a busy mom, I'm always looking for new and creative ways to memorize or highlight scripture! What a neat way to make bible time fun and kid friendly! -Christine

  6. I was just looking up journaling bibles last night! My bible is starting to fall apart and it's time for a new one. I'd love a chance to win :).

  7. I have the red one as well! Even though Im not the most artistic person it doesn't matter because I am doing it for myself. Which makes it artistic in its own right.

  8. What timing-I have been looking to purchase a more "reader friendly" bible and this is perfect! Reader and creativity friendly!

  9. This is awesome! I haven't seen this before. I highlight and write notes in my Bible a lot – I even have a special set of highlighters made for the Bible so they don't bleed through. And I have a separate binder where I have cut outs, quotes, doodles, etc. But I never thought about combining them. It's such a great idea, I'd love to have this!

  10. How exciting! I have some friends that bible journal and have been wanting to give it a try! I am a devo girl, so this would be a great way to dive deeper into the Word. Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. This is a wonderful idea! I had never heard of this before. I think it's a great way to let you really sit with the word – crafting takes lots of time, and you can let the passages resonate and repeat themselves while you work. I love this more the longer I think about it!

  21. What a wonderful idea! I write so much in the margins of my Bible. A few years ago I started dating special notes, and it's been so encouraging to look back and see when particular passages spoke really deeply to me.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  24. Awesome giveaway. I've been in search of a new bible and I think this may be it! My go-to bible is one that my hubs gave me for our wedding and I don't like to "doodle" in it as much because I want to pass it down to our children, so this one is perfect!

In my experience with loss, it's the coming days that always seem the toughest. Take care.x

  28. I would be honored to give this Bible a new home!

  33. Hi Megan,
    Not sure how to leave a comment. Hope you get mine. I would love to win this Bible to help me with my journey through breast cancer. Thanks for reminding me of where my help comes from.

  34. I have been wanting one of these ever since I saw it on your Instagram page! I never even knew these existed until I saw the one you purchased. I would love it! xo

  35. What a great Bible. I have never seen one, but hope to get on in the near future. There is never enough room in most Bibles to write down your complete observations or thoughts.

  36. This is the first time I read about journaling bible, but as I am a bible reader and like to write down my thoughts and ideas, this is a great opportunity to write those down right on the correct place.

  37. I've seen this idea on Instagram, and love the look of it! All of the pictures on here and on Instagram are so inspiring. Thank you for the giveaway!

  38. I am looking for a blog post that you posted a while back. It was a post on a bible that would received during law school ….I think you said a friend gave it to you…there was a beautiful quote written inside that really resonated within me…I forgot to write it down and now I can’t find tag blog post. Would you please redirect me to that post
