I’m excited to share Faith Inspirations with you!
But first… a little background. In 2015, I had my first encounter with mixed media art and I fell in love. I love to use it as a way to interpret a Word from the Holy Spirit, as a way of worship and study, and as a way to simply spend time with God.
Have you ever asked yourself why you have the desire to be creative?
God wants to spend time with me. And I know He wants to spend time with you. You have a gift; the gift of creativity. Maybe you don’t sell your crafts or art projects, but you know that somewhere deep inside of you is that longing to create something. Have you ever asked yourself, why He gave it to you?
I believe that God gave me the gift of creativity because it’s where He meets with me. It’s where I can build an intimate relationship with Him.
As a mom, I would spend time with my boys doing things that they were passionate about. I didn’t take them to baseball games because I wanted them to be professional baseball players. I took them to games because I wanted to spend time with them, get to know them a little bit more, and build our relationship. I think God does that too. I find Him every time I pick up a paintbrush, sticker, stamp, or any tool used in arts and crafts.
A Journey of Sorts
Over the course of a few years, I’ve taken many art and mixed media courses, but unfortunately, there aren’t many Christian teachers to learn from. I’d listen to instructors say things that weren’t Biblical like it was the norm, and people would just nod and accept what was said as truth. I finally threw my hands in the air when the last instructor told me to light a candle and say a prayer to the “spirits’ or “universe.” YIKES! It’s time for a change. It’s time for Faith Inspirations…
What is Faith Inspirations?
Faith Inspirations is a mixed media challenge, but you may use the files in other projects you create like cards, art journals, junk journals, scrapbooking, and home decor. The program is designed to move the conversation beyond your personal Bible journaling time and into projects that inspire and encourage not only you…but those around you.
Faith Inspirations provides you with the opportunity to experience joy and peace while you engage with the Holy Spirit. Combing faith with creativity can be a relaxing and healing experience, as well as one that strengthens your faith and builds your relationship with God.
What’s the Purpose?
Faith inspirations is designed to strengthen faith, encourage creativity, and inspire others to fix their eyes on the Lord.

How can I purchase Faith Inspirations?

Why are we launching this new program?
In Mark 16:15, Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” Sometimes it’s hard to find opportunities to share our faith. But, sometimes a simple art project, card, home decor, article of clothing, or other token can spark a conversation.
At Bible Journaling Ministries, our mission is to help you grow in the Word creatively. Momentum is our core program attached to that mission. However, we know that part of growing in the Word means growing in your faith and having the opportunity to share the gospel with others. Faith Inspiration is an easy way to do just that. When you engage with the Word, you’ll experience joy and peace. Combing your faith with your creatively can be healing. Plus there are no monthly membership fees or commitments with this program.
How is Faith Inspirations different than Momentum?
Momentum is a monthly digital Bible journaling membership designed to help you grow in the Word creatively. It includes devotionals, videos, technique lessons, Bible journaling kits, planner kits, and more. Membership in Momentum is monthly and recurring.
Faith Inspirations has a focus verse, but does not have in-depth devotional study or other components listed above. It includes 1 challenge, 1 pdf kit, and 1 video every month. Membership in Faith Inspirations is seasonal NOT monthly. There are six sessions in every season. A season lasts six months.
Because this is not a monthly program, you may download BOTH the videos and project files to your device. Project files can be used in the mixed media project along with the videos. HOWEVER, you may want to use them outside of the box and create cards, mugs, t-shirts, bags, and other fun projects.
Is there a separate Facebook group?
Yes. Projects created from Faith Inspirations files are typically not the same as Bible journaling. Please utilize the Faith Inspirations Facebook community to post your projects and find other like-minded friends.
You will be invited to join the Faith Inspirations Facebook community in your welcome email.
Is it a monthly program?
Faith Inspiration projects are released monthly, but you are NOT billed monthly. A Faith Inspirations season pass can be purchased for one low fee and includes all six challenges, project files, and exclusive project videos.
How long does the season last?
Faith Inspiration Season 1 starts on January 17, 2020. The last set of files will be provided on June 19, 2020.
What is the challenge?
Every month we’ll share the Faith Inspiration mixed media challenge which includes:
- Monthly focus verse
- Words for inspiration
- Color palette
- Challenge instructions
Your challenge is to use all four things in a project that encourages and inspires you and those around you.
Will I get anything in the snail mail?
Nope. All of our stuff is digital. You may order printing service if you would like the .pdf files printed and mailed to you.
How will I get the files?
