Bible Journaling Feb 12 at 3pm

Bible Journaling with Tee

This is TherIllustrated-Faith-Printables-by-Natalie-Elphinstone-1ese Travis writing. I’m kind of the shadow behind the newsletter and some of the blog posts. But today I got to sit down with Tee Angel and hear some of her ideas for her brand new Bible Journaling workshop, and I was so excited that I have to share my feelings with you on this.

The workshop will happen once a month, on Sunday afternoons. The first will be February 12, at 3:00. The cost is $15.00. The value? Immeasurable!

Tee has so many plans for us. We won’t get to see them all during that first workshop, as it will be a time to get to know each other, to explore what we want from the workshop, and to get acquainted with the materials she will provide and the method she’ll use.

Tee’s had a lot of interest in Bible Journaling from customers, and as it’s a much more personal and private sort of art, rather than a typical class or workshop, she’ll give us a chance to explore what WE want to do with our journaling. It will include a passage from the bible, our artwork supported by the materials she provides, and best of all, our own personal response to the Scripture.

She talked to me about the materials (she hasn’t chosen them all, so I have no manufacturer’s names for you, I only know she’s taking a great deal of care choosing the best). She talked about how each of us use Scripture to grow in our faith and in our walk with each other, and how excited she is to be able to join and facilitate that journey.

Pam (or Pamalot as Tee refers to her) will be helping guide the discussions. And there will be discussion. It’s artwork and bible study at the same time. Creating and the Creator!

I invite you to join us at Hearts n Crafts etc, and start your journey right along with us. You can bring a journaling bible, a “regular” bible, a journal of any type, or simply a piece of paper with your Scripture printed on it. Tee will have some materials available. If you have some favorite coloring medium (watercolor pencils, markers, etc) feel free to bring those.
