Scripture Journals

In the past few weeks I have come across two blogs that I {LOVE} and want to share with you.

The first one is redheadedhostess.com.  I love how she shares so many great insights on the scriptures and gosple related topics.  She blogs about things that have {depth} and {substance} to them.  I guess I’m getting a little burned out on craft blogs (including mine).  They’re great and all, but sometimes they just seem a little . . .  shallow.  There’s soo much more to life and I feel like the more the kids wear me down the more spiritualness I need.   My favorite post of hers is on how she sets up her scripture journals.  If you scroll all the way to the bottom she has a handout that you can print.  Look close, I almost missed it.

Ack! Her handwriting is so perfect.  I am having jealousy issues!

The second one I found and love is womeninthescriptures.blogspot.com.  Heather does in depth studies on (you’ll never guess), women in the scriptures.  Awesome, right?  She really is soo super smart.  I feel like such an idiot just reading her posts.  She knows soo much!  She also has a post on how she sets up her scripture journals

So here is my scripture journal.  I had one before but I didn’t really like it and therefore, never really used it.  Ever since I read Rebecca’s post on her scripture journals I have been looking around for a new one.  I just happened to be at Barnes and Noble last week and came across these moleskine notebooks.  It’s exactly what I had in mind. 

I love that it is lined really small and has good quality paper so I can write in it with a Micron pen and it won’t bleed through.  I went through and numbered the pages and set up the table of contents on the first two pages.  More info on how to do that here.  The first thing that I put in my journal is my patriarchal blessing, since it’s my personal scripture.  There are soo many things I want to study, learn and write about in my new journal.  Crafting is good and all, and it does fill a need to create, but sometimes you just need something more.  This doesn’t mean that I won’t be posting my crafty projects or anything.  I just wanted to share with you my latest love.  Maybe it will inspire you to start a scripture journal too.

    Thank you so much for posting this!! I was challenged to start a scripture journal in October and have put it off for too long. You have given me the motivation I needed to finally get it going!

    You are sweet. I’m glad that you’ve started a scripture journal! I love the ideas from the red headed hostess. And wow, her handwriting is beautiful. My journals, never in a million years would look like hers!

    I really appreciate this post. And it was fun to puruse yet another amazing blog. My follow list is getting long! There is so much more to life – and crafting can be a fun little part of it. I tend to let it get too big. I’ve never tried a scripture journal – I’m working on the “reading them” part. The journaling and pictures, charts, etc is totally up my ally though so any motivation helps – right? And I’m all over any excuse to go to the bookstore and browse the stationary isle.

    Thank you for sharing how you did this! I’ve been enjoying and drooling over Redheaded Hostess’s posts about her scripture journal, but live far from Utah, and haven’t found where to buy a journal that would work. I’ll be checking B&N. . . .

      Thanks for the nice comment Michelle. This post is by far my favorite because I just love my scripture journal soo much! I’m going to post again about it soon. I hope you find a notebook that works good for you. It’ll be something you treasure forever! :-)
