Hi Sweet Sisters in Christ!!


Wow, I cannot believe it is July already!! We have been so busy trying to rearrange and get our home ready for sale (this is our small home that we have owned for 34 years and needs a lot if work )


Still trying to carve out time to be able to Bible Journal but as I am getting older, it seems to take more time to do things than when I was younger....


The theme for July will be Eternal and/or Eternity with a second optional theme of Freedom.

I am so thankful that we have freedom in Christ as well as the promise of eternal life with Him! I long for the day when I will meet my Savior face to face and spend all eternity with Him in Heaven, don't you?

May the Lord bless you all this month and I am looking forward to seeing your creative journaling- hugs!

My Eternal/Eternity + Freedom page is finished. It's scheduled for my blog in a few days, at which time I'll add it to the gallery and pop in here to share it, too.

GREAT theme!!!

Awesome theme(s) Julie. I know what you mean about things being harder when you get a bit older. Dear DH use to be able to do anything we needed, but with his back and foot issues, he can't do much anymore. We need to do some work on our house and have realized we will have to have it done by others - that raises the cost so much we really have to think hard about it.

Can't wait to so some BAJ pages with these themes. Happy Holiday to all or just a good Wednesday if you are not off. Hugz

I'm jumping in to Bible journal as a way to leave my thoughts and spiritual journey to my oldest granddaughter!

I have one of the Bibles from my paternal grandmother, it has a few notes in it. I cherish this as she is the grandmother that took me to VBS where I heard about God's love. She was not allowed to be a part of my life after I was 6 or 7 years old, until I became an adult and had freedom in relationships. My paternal aunt gave me the Bible when her mother died.

I also had my maternal grandmother's Bible, had that rebound and have given it to my daughter.

I'm not sure I'm into the Art part of Bible Art Journal but I want to use stamps, inks and pens in a way that I can leave thoughts, words and pictures on scripture pages for Baby Grand to read when she is older and I may have already died.

Reading through this thread and pming with Nancy I realize I may have jumped in without a life jacket on into this BAJ waters!

Julie I am going to enjoy using your monthly word or thought to start my journey along with my desire to do detailed journal in Philippians and James.

I need to wait to begin until I have the right supplies, didn't know that regular pen and ink would not do well on the pages!

Good Morning to all of my Bible Journaling Friends!

Faye, it's good to see you here... and what a fabulous reason to Bible Journal!

Nancy, I'm sorry about your DH's back/foot challenges... does he get frustrated that he can't do what he used to do?

Arrow Jeanette's July BAJ

Good Morning Fellow Bible Journalers! Here's my Eternal/Eternity + Freedom page...



Obviously the verse I chose speaks directly of eternal life - "And anyone who believes in God's Son has eternal life." (John 3:36a) We also have freedom (freedom from our sin) by believing in God's Son.


You can also find my BAJ page in the gallery...

Thankful 4 Eternal Life BAJ by Forest Ranger - at Splitcoaststampers

Faye, so glad to see you here!

I use regular pens all the time! You have to check them out and make sure they don't bleed through or smear. Microns and SU! Journaling pens work very well. Some of my ink pens work really good. There are times I just grab whatever is around. Sometimes I don't care if it bleeds through - I just use whatever comes through on the other page as something in my new page or I cover it like Jeanette did in her example with papers or other items. This is totally what you want it to be and the rules are only your own. I have even used coffee and wine on my pages - pm if you want tips on them.

I have used chalk in my bible too - it worked good and looked good but over time, it has started to fade. I am even ok with that - it may look even better as a kind of ghost image. I know I can spray a sealer of it, but probably won't ever remember to do it.

With some gesso you make any ink or pen work most likely.

Jump in and let us know when you do!!!!

Jeanette, I love the colors, patterns and fun use of the circles on your freedom page. You do the best things with paper - I so need to do that more.

Wonderful verses to highlight and think on.

Your page just gave me some wonderful ideas - thanks for sharing.

Eternity page

Rooted in A Promise by nwilliams6 - at Splitcoaststampers

Love the new Rooted in Nature set. I did it in distress ink and didn't page prep so it bled through to the other side, but it looks great so I am just going to incorporate it into that other page as well.

Jeanette, I just saw your comment about my DH's foot. Yes, he gets very depressed about not being able to do the things he use to do, but then we realize we are aging as well so it is one of those things you just have to accept. He keeps a pretty good attitude MOST of the time. Thanks for asking!!! Hugz

A kind of crazy BAJ page inspired by this week's featured stamper:

FS596 Peace BAJ by nwilliams6 - at Splitcoaststampers


Peace = freedom of the mind right?

It isn't my normal style and I smudged it a bit (working with distress crayons isn't easy for me for some reason), but it is kind of fun.

Hope you are all having a great week! Hugz
