As each has received a gift, employ it in serving one another, as good managers of the grace of God in its various forms. -1 Peter 4:10
This verse is so important to Bible Journaling Ministries. Being good stewards of what God has provided is so important to our walk. We never require anyone to purchase a thing from our ministry and we share monthly freebies, tutorials, and resources because we want everyone to have the opportunity to grow in the Word.
I’ve always been a frugal gal. I check the library first before I buy a book, use coupons, shop sales, and frequent thrift stores. It’s a fun hobby, but it didn’t used to be fun. It used to be the only way I could make ends meet.
When you have no income and are in the depths of a recession with and two little kids to feed, things can get scary pretty fast. My frugality (along with a solid partnership with the hubs) became a skill that helped my family keep our promises to lenders, feed ourselves, and climb out of debt one bill at a time.
Today I’m still frugal. Our family has a budget, and we stick to it. If there’s no money in my budget for a new art supply, I wait, and I save, even if the most awesome Bible journaling item hits the shelves. Budget is key! That’s why I created the Bible Journaling on a Budget course for the Flourish Bible Journaling conference. If you were unable to view this class during the conference, I’ve placed it here for you in hopes that it helps illuminate ways you can grow in the Word without breaking the bank!
