Manuela’s Bible Journaling Story
My name is Manuela and…I’m an Italian! I’m 34 years old and I always believe in God, always being Christian Catholic, and I always loved taking notes!
How did you discover Bible Journaling?
My favourite writer published about her bible journaling on Instagram. It’s easier said than done! I’m a “selectioner”! Yes, I read the Kiera Cass’s series “The selection” and then I decided to follow her on Instagram. And in her profile I saw some photos with these tags: #biblejournaling #illustratedfaith, I immediately loved her works on the bible. I fall in love with the idea of working on the Word, so I started a research in order to better know the marvelous religious art. I discovered that it was a Christian art and that there existed journal bible.
As I love the book of Psalms so I bought the Psalms journal book as my first Bible! Little by little I bought the material, too and in the October 2016 I started to journal.
I think this art is marvelous and very spiritual, what I love about it is that I can underline, draw, re-write the verse(s) that impressed and allow me to reflect, or simply to release my emotions and feelings.
