God+His Word+Friends+New Experience

Untitled design (29)

I always, ALWAYS get nervous when I am about to do a Bible journaling class/workshop or lesson of any sort.  It doesn’t matter if it is for friends that I have known for years or a small group of five new friends.  But this full workshop of 25 beautiful ladies brought my nerves of public speaking to a whole new level. Friends, I am not a public speaker!  I’m just a gal who likes to paint in her Bible.  Well, I guess that is all the Lord needs sometimes…His word and a scared momma!

Untitled design (35)

The morning was amazing.  I definitely felt the Lord speaking through me and it was exciting to see so many people experience His word in a new way.  My emphasis is always on the meditation process on the scripture.  I think that is pretty new for people.  It was and still is for me.  The pretty page at the end is just a bonus, you know what I mean? Spending so much time thinking and contemplating just one verse has brought me peace and stability.  I think about my page when I am done, I think about the next verse I feel the Lord leading me to, I think about how I may illustrate that one, I think about how the same words I have read for years may be speaking to me in a new way…The Living Word!

The Giveaways!

We had some great giveaways thanks to some very generous donors:

  • Oklahoma City Lifeway Christian Store donated a beautiful Journaling Bible. They also gave $10 off coupons to all who attended.
  • Ashlie’s Special Customers donated a super cute item from Thirty-One Gifts.
  • An anonymous donor donated a $15 gift card to purchase Bible Journaling supplies.
  • Creating a Great Day donated a fun stamper to date all the Bible Journaling pages.

The Giveaways! (4)

 

A HUGE thank you to all who made this possible.  Many were involved from shopping to helping set up the audio visual to donating the space where we had the workshop.

(This is Kristi writing this part – another HUGE “Thank You!” to McKenzie for putting on this workshop.  It was so well done and we all learned so much.  Thanks for combining your talent with faith and sharing it with others!)

Here are some pictures and words from a few friends who were at the workshop. Enjoy!

Bible Journaling Workshop Pages - 1

“I absolutely loved the Bible journaling workshop!  It had been a busy week and it was a wonderful way to relax and meditate on God’s word!  It’s new to me, but I look forward to making time to sit down, focus, and study on a verse and then journal it!  McKenzie is a wonderful Christian inspiration to so many women and especially now that she is encouraging us to really study God’s word in a new way by Bible journaling!  Loved her workshop and the Bible journaling idea she taught us all!” -Terra

Bible Journaling Workshop Pages - 2

“My most pleasant surprise was how the doodling, “sketching it out” time truly evolved into a picture of what I believe God would emphasize from the text for me personally at that time.  I started out with an attitude of ‘oh well, we’ll see how this goes’ and ended up encountering God’s heart the deeper I went in the exercise.” -Angela

Bible Journaling Workshop - 3

“Being in McKenzie’s Bible journaling class taught me another avenue to write the Word on my heart!  Focusing on scripture, feeling it, and highlighting it was powerful to me!  I love the depth of the class.  McKenzie has a gift that she chooses to give to God!” -Leslie

Bible Journaling Workshop Pages - 4

I pray that if you feel pulled to this type of worship that you will lean into what God is trying to show you.  God is the creator, and therefore He is creative!  We are made in His image and so we too are creative!

Are you unable to attend the Bible Journaling Workshop event but want to participate with us anyway?  Perfect! We have just the way to do that and have the Bible Journaling Workshop supply list ready for you!

Meeting in Isle 15! McKenzie & I had such a fun time planning out what all fun things to use during the workshop.

Meeting in Isle 15! McKenzie & I had such a fun time planning out what all to use during the workshop.

If you are not attending the live event then you will need the following supplies:

1.  An Open Heart

The coolest thing about Bible Journaling is not so much the artistic aspect but the meditating on a verse and seeing it come alive in a whole new way.  Praying for understanding, insight, and wisdom while dwelling on His word plants it into our hearts so that it will blossom in our life and not only on the paper.

 2.  A Bible or a Journaling Bible.

Yes, you can use your everyday Bible, but many choose to purchase a Journaling Bible because it has wide margins,which allows more room to create.

Bible Journal

The Oklahoma City Lifeway Christian store has generously donated this Journaling Bible for us to giveaway at the workshop!

3.  The Periscope app

Periscope is an app Twitter has created to watch LIVE streaming videos.  So what you see is what we will be doing.  You can ask questions or just send us some love.

If you are on Twitter then start by following Creating a Great Day @Create_GreatDay 

Once you are on Twitter, all you have to do is download the free Periscope app your phone.  When you open the app, you will notice that all the people you follow on Twitter who have a Periscope app will automatically show up.  It will even notify you with a bird tweet any time someone you follow is live on Periscope.

We will  tweet out the web link to our Periscope broadcast, so you can watch it from your computer as well.  You can watch it up to 24 hours after it’s aired.

4.  Scrap paper, a journal, or photocopies of pages from your Journaling Bible

This will be used to practice on before you ever put anything into your Bible, so any piece of paper will do.  Recently, I saw someone made copies of their Bible Journal so that they could create a rough draft before putting the final product in their Bible and I thought that was a brilliant idea!

5.  A pen

Any pen will do.  We purchased the Bible Journaling pens from Illustrated Faith to use at the workshop.

This is really all you need but if you would like to add the extras that we will have at the workshop you can as well.  

6.  Watercolors & paintbrushes

7.  Craft paint

8.  An old gift card

McKenzie will show you a really cool trick on how to apply paint to your Bible using one of these cards.

9.  Crayola Twistable Crayons

McKenzie prefers to use these instead of colored pencils because they have a soft touch on the Bible pages and won’t rip through them.

Twistables

10.  Stamps & ink pads

 

11.  Tags

Tags can be used for many different things including tabbing your Bible Journaling pages.

12.  Washi tapeWashi Tape

 

Again, for Bible Journaling all you really need is an open heart and a pen.  Meditate on God’s word, let it soak into your soul, and express itself in your life as well as on paper.

May you be blessed by this workshop!  We look forward to having you participate.

Remember, it all happens on Saturday morning, October 24 from 9:30am – 12:00pm central time.

What are you most excited to learn from this workshop?
