It's time for the new Bible journaling kit from Dayspring and I am beyond thrilled about this kit! This new kit is exclusive to Dayspring and is the first in a three kit series on Women in the Bible.

The Women of the Bible kit includes:
4 devotionals
1 washi tape
2 sheets of clear stickers
6 paper paperclips
2 sheets of alpha stickers
1 4x6 clear stamp set
1 Women of the Bible: Better Together sticker
1 greeting card
1 Gelatos® pigment stick
1 message from DaySpring

The stamps in this kit are so fun! I love the women. You can use black ink, let them dry completely, then color it in with colored pencils. Or used colored ink! That's the fun thing about Bible journaling, there is no wrong way! The page makers are fun for marking the verses in the Bible you'll study about the women, or add to you day planner to mark important dates.

I had never used Gelatos before and wasn't sure how to use them. So, I just google it and found tons of great info! Basically, use it to color like a crayon. Once it's had a minute to dry, you can write over it or place a stamp over it. For a smooth Gelato look, you can use a slightly damp cloth to wipe over it after coloring, then write or stamp over it.

Stickers are a joy to use! Add them to your Bible, journal, or devotional cards. This kit gives alpha stickers and word stickers that say things like trust, fresh hope, be strong, and new life. You'll love the soft color they add to your journal entries.

The devotional cards include:
2 Kings 22 with the study of Huldah
Luke 8:3 with the study of Joanna & Susanna
Luke 10 with the study of sisters Mary & Martha
Luke 1 with the study of Mary & Elizabeth

If you want to learn about more women in the Bible, Dayspring and (in)Courage have a beautiful Bible, the (in)Courage Devotional Bible, that you will love! This Bible has sections that introduce you to women in the Bible. While the Women in the Bible kit will share six women with you, the (in)Courage Devotional Bible shares fifty women! The Bible comes in four cover options to choose from. I love this Bible!

I am so excited for the Women of the Bible kit series! Pick up your kit below and start journaling your way through as you study women of the Bible.

Marriage is worth the fight. Read that again: Marriage is worth the fight.

Marriage isn't easy and if anyone ever told you it was, I am here to tell you they are lying. While it isn't easy, in fact it is pretty hard, it is worth fighting for and worth the effort.

Whether you've been married one year or thirty, whether you're tired of the fight and ready to give up or ready to put on your warrior boots, I have a devotional that is going to change your life.

Indivisible: One Marriage Under God is based on the movie Indivisible, which tells the true story of Army Chaplain Darren Turner and his wife Heather's battle to restore their marriage. Darren and Heather's life was centered around helping others find Jesus. While Darren was ministering to the men and women of the military, Heather was ministering to their families. Walking beside them helping them to not feel alone and to keep faith. Little did they know the troubles they fought against would creep into their own home. The Turners found how to keep their marriage indivisible.

Indivisible: One Marriage Under God offers fifty devotions. You can do one a day for fifty days, or you can do one a week and take a year to go through it. Each devotional includes a Scripture, a devotion, a creating connection section, and three questions to get you and your spouse opening up and talking. The devotion topics include impossible possibilities, a legacy of love, becoming one, a love to die for, redeeming romance, passionate partnership, Jehovah in the house, I got your back, a couple's calling, and much more.

If your spouse isn't in a place (mentally or physically) to do this devotion with you, you should absolutely do it on your own and let God work in your own heart and through you.

Indivisible the movie will be available on dvd and BlueRay on January 29th. You can find out more HERE.

Have you wanted to try your hand at Bible journaling but you just aren't sure? You think it looks so interesting and you see so many beautiful journaling entries splattering across your Instgram feed, but you just aren't very artistic. Shanna Noel, the creator of Illustrated Faith, is here to help!

With her brand new book, Workbook Guide to Bible Journaling, Shanna encourages us by saying, "Please don't get me wrong, the Bible is a story about Jesus, not about me, but by documenting what I am learning through His Word and through a relationship with Him, I am then able to use that as a resource on my journey and to share that testimony with those around me."

Workbook Guide to Bible Journaling is filled with fun techniques for painting, hand lettering, stickering, and stamping all taught by Shanna and her friends. There's also plenty of space for you to get messy with watercolors, stencils, washi tape, and more. Bible Journaling is an exciting way to engage with God's Word by connecting your faith with your creativity. You'll fall in love with your Bible all over again while drawing closer to God.

What Is Bible Journaling?
"We are going to teach you the techniques behind Bible journaling but I want you to promise me right here and right now that you will remember the true heart behind it and use this book as a tool to tell those huge God stories in your life!" —Shanna Noel

Where Do I Start?
"I know most of us want to jump right into the creative part, but remember you are documenting what God is laying on your heart through the message of His Word, and sometimes that takes some time. I want you to pray about it and allow it to sink into your heart; don't just take things at face value." —Shanna Noel

Whether you are brand new to Bible journaling or just want to try a new technique, Workbook Guide to Bible Journaling is a great guide to help you.
