The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before. Creation brings satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take organized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty.

Scripture Journaling is a really great way to study your scriptures.  Scripture Journaling looks different to each person.  We are all so different and the scriptures speak to each of us differently.   They can speak to us differently at different times in our lives.  Scripture Journaling may mean, to write things in the margins, things to remember, or things you have learned.  It may mean keeping a separate book to journal in as you read your scriptures.  It may be that you begin to color and create in your scriptures themselves.  The words are so beautiful, and they can give you the desire to create in them.  This is what they have done for Julie and Me.  We have taken our studying of the Scriptures to a different level, we have really feasted upon the Word of the Lord.  This different way of study has truly changed our lives.  We wanted to share with you our journey and hope that you will give it a try!  It is life changing!  Take the challenge and join us in sharing your scripture journaling with others also.  We want to hear about how it has changed your scripture study.  We would love to see your creations!  If you share on Instagram be sure to #scripturefun, or #bofmjournaling.   Check out our videos and tutorials so that you can learn from our many mistakes.

Hi, I’m Cindy, I was born and raised in Bellevue Wa.  I am married and have 4 wonderful children.  Steve and I are empty nesters now living in Utah.   I have to say that we are really enjoying our time together.  We have 2 beautiful grand children.  I can’t tell you how much journaling in my Scriptures means to me.  It has changed my life.  I can’t wait for my time in the scriptures.  It brings me so much joy, I finally feel like I am feasting upon the Word of God.  Our hope is to inspire others to do the same.  I firmly believe that if we read from our scriptures every day that we will not be lead astray.

What we do

We are Sisters from birth, and we are Sisters in the Gospel.  We love the Lord, and our families.  We love to create and we love to create in our Scriptures.  Scripture Journaling has changed our lives for the better.  We hope you will join us in the Fun!

Hello- I am Julie! I am a Northwest Native! Born and raised with tall green trees, green hills and grey skies. In fact I live in the house I grew up in. My husband is the most patient man, especially when he is not busy being the patient…ha ha. Love you! I am blessed with two handsome men as sons and a beautiful daughter in law that I love as my own! Life is great, and it even got better when I started reading my scriptures more often. Then it stepped up a notch when I started experimenting with painting in my scriptures! It has helped me pause after reading, and then really think about what the message is. The art may not be perfect, but the process of thinking about it, and then being creative with the thought has really made a difference in my life.   I am hoping and praying that this form of journaling will help bring you closer to Christ. He is there for us all, “knock, and it shall be opened unto you”.
