Bible Journaling for Lent

How to Bible Journal

Hey everyone!

I started doing this amazing project – Bible Journaling. What is Bible Journaling?

It’s an easy and fun way to spend time with the Lord and with my Bible! During the next 5 weeks (almost 4), I am going to be drawing in my NIV.

I read about 1-2 chapters a day and then doodle/draw about that passage.


I got this *AMAZING* idea from my wonderful friend at Homespun Sprout. You should go to her website if you haven’t already!

I started a week late, but better late than never!

By drawing in my Bible, it has helped me to read the Bible everyday and to really let the words soak in. I also love to draw (not very well, but still 😉 ) so it’s the best of both worlds!

One of my favorite passages in John – ‘I am the light if the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the LIGHT of life.’

It can be hard to draw right over the words, but as long as I can still read them – then it’s all right!

**Make sure you use lighter colors so you can still read all the words like above. 🙂

I love doodling on the side too – it’s an easy way to remember a certain verse

How to Bible Doodle


I use glittery pens, and Crayola’s 3 color markers – I like the look they give!

Instead of giving things up for lent

Bible Doodling


I use a Concordia NIV Bible – the pages are kind of thin, but it still works like a charm!

P.S. Hearts are *really* hard to draw on bindings – I wouldn’t recommend doing that! 😀

Now, I am going to challenge you to do the same thing! Once a day, for 10-15 minutes take a tiny bit of time to read a chapter or passage and doodle about it! It doesn’t have to be fancy too – some people use stickers, tracing, and scrapbooking supplies.
