Coloring and being creative in card making has always been a love of mine! I have loved to color, draw, scrapbook, and gift making since I was a young girl. But recently, I have enjoyed the art and love of journaling in my daily devotional time.
In the year 2017, I stepped into ANOTHER form of creativity. I added a planner that I could add fun color, wasabi tape, or stickers to help remind me of different events.
Who would have ever thought to put your daily calendar into full color and splash would make me WANT to look at it? It helps me remember too as well as fun creating it!
So in 2018, I got myself a combination of devotional and a planner all in one! In just a few days of starting the new year, I have enjoyed the doodling, journaling and I think the best part is the focused verse. I take it with me throughout the day. Memorizing, pondering, and loving God’s word in my daily tasks. This one is on a non-affiliated but wanted to share. Dayspring also has a TON to choose from.
I also love how I can write prayer requests, or look to see who I need to pray for.
While I am in my devotional time and the Lord inspires something on my heart, I can still be creative in my bible. I can do my devotional than plan my day and still be focusing on God’s word and prayer. One day I reverse it and you know what? It helped me focus more on my quiet time because I got the “to do” out of my mind. By having the business part done, I could flow right into prayer and praise and time in His word. I JUST love this!

I think that is what I love so much about journaling as it can be drawn, written, or just doodling my thoughts. In my bible, I will often date it when I have created something, or when something is really on my heart and have gotten praise or prayer within that time of creating.
If you want to get started, Dayspring has some wonderful Coloring Day Planners! You can click on the link ad of Dayspring and take a look. ***(remember every time you order from this blog you help our ministry)
This year I got a smaller version size planner, and I wished I didn’t. (above) I like a little bigger space not only to write down my appointments for sessions but also room to create. So if you’re pondering the same issue…go bigger!
I love it and hope you will too. The bible I have for journaling is also on Dayspring or Amazon and all the fun goodies you can get to start. The joy of being in God’s word just got more delightful! OH…and colorful!

Enjoy being creative!
