Hope Freed Me

Hope Bible Journaling Illustrated Faith


I have been getting back to making simple Bible journaling pages, that really make me smile.  I just go with the flow in prayer, letting how God’s words have made me feel inspire the page I’m creating.  The pom poms and Maggie Holmes stickers just felt right to my personal style of Bible journaling.  Before I knew it, Day 29 of Gratitude Documented was finished!  I hope the rest of November is treating you well brothers and sisters!

Thankful for Your Smile

Smiles Bible Journaling Illustrated Faith

Proverbs 15:30 (ESV)

30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
    and good news refreshes[a] the bones.


For Day 16 of Gratitude Documented, it was all about being thankful for smiles.  I knew I’d have to pull out my interleaved edition because I’d need room to highlight a cute photo of my little man!  I also knew that I wanted to use the Maggie Holmes Sticker Book!  I’m fairly certain that it will take about 2 years to use all the stickers in that book, and it’s amazing!  (Even still I need 3 more haha)  When I was standing in the Hobby Lobby aisle trying to decide which one to purchase, I kept picking up and putting down this one and the Dear Lizzy book.  I had a really hard time choosing which one.  They are all so beautiful!  I decided to go with the Maggie Holmes version because her designs have always had my crafty heart, and they are so easy to mix in with collections I already own.


If you haven’t seen the Sticker Books yet, then you are definitely missing out!  They are the best deal EVER!  This particular book has 1163 stickers in it, including foil and transparent stickers.

Lord, I am so incredibly thankful for his smiles!  I’m thankful that a small smile on his face can change everything about my day; it can change everything I feel inside.  The giggles, smiles, and good times are everything to me.



Day 14: Grace

God's Grace Bible Journaling Illustrated Faith

Nehemiah 9:17 (ESV)

17 They refused to obey and were not mindful of the wonders that you performed among them, but they stiffened their neck and appointed a leader to return to their slavery in Egypt.[a] But you are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and did not forsake them.
