I’ve never been a fan of writing in my books. I label them in pencil and don’t write notes in the margins. So it’s somewhat odd that I decided to try a journaling Bible, eh?
At first I could hardly bring myself to write in it. What if I’d want the space later for something else? What if someone else read it? What if I messed up and made irreparable marks in it? Finally, I forced myself to just start writing, and I have to tell you, I love it.
In case you haven’t heard of journaling Bibles, it’s a regular Bible with wide lined margins for leaving notes. There is plenty of room for regular note taking, or for doodles and sketches and the mini sermons that come to your mind in the middle of church. Oh wait, is that just me?
If you are the kind of person who likes to process through writing, or who can concentrate better when you are doing something on paper, this is the perfect thing for you.
How about you- are you the kind of person who writes in all your book margins, or do you leave the pages pristine?
