Ellie Claire was very generous and sent me three Bible journals to review. They included The Illustrated Word, Illuminate Your Story and Faith and Lettering. I was beyond thrilled because I have journaled Bible verses and my thoughts on various verses for years.
I personally have kept a journal of Bible verses since I have become a Christian. Many of my journals burned and I truly miss them. I would go over them and over them to recount how those verses related to me at that moment. I probably journaled several verses over and over many times. They all related differently to my life each time.
I think journaling is a great way to let go and express your feelings. You don’t have to ever let ANYONE else read these feelings at all. You can keep journals for various reasons. It can be for your emotional well being, your daily activities so that you can remember them in the future or as I have done for many years, Bible verses.
I think that pretty journals help you WANT to write in them don’t they? They do me. They just make me want to make them mine. They make me want to make them stand out more. They make me want to keep them special. I’m a book and journal freak if you can’t tell, lol. The Ellie Claire Bible Journals are just gorgeous.
Each is a hardback Bible journals, that makes me feel that the book is more valuable. All of them have thick paper, which is important to me. I honestly liked each journal and that is the truth, but I do want to go over each one of them one by one.
Illuminate Your Story Journal will help you learn how to create all the fancy lettering and pictures to go along with it. It teaches you step by step. So, while you are journaling, you are also learning a new craft. I think this is very interesting. I’ve never journaled this way and I think it could be a way to keep your interest and possibly hold the interest of someone who’s attention tends to drift. I think it’s very neat. It has a holder on the side for a pen, which is handy.
The Faith And Lettering Journal is so cute. I see this Bible Journal more for Gracie or one of her friends though. It’s not exactly for me, although I’m sure it could be for someone my age. I just haven’t branched out to this type of journaling. You can trace letters, verses and you can journal. It is a VERY versatile coloring journal. It also has a holder for a pen or colored pencil on the side.
The Illustrated Word Bible Coloring Journal is very pretty and to very truthful is my favorite of all three of these. It is lined (the other journals have lined pages within them too), but all of this journal is lined. This is more of what I’m used to. In addition to the lined pages, it has images and coloring pages within the journal. The images are bright and vibrant, very eye-catching. You can find Bible verses within the journal. I really just think that this journal is my style.
Each of these Ellie Claire journals are very nice and please do check them out. They would make such nice Christmas gifts. I give Ellie Claire two thumbs up, they have wonderful Bible journals for sale.
