The Starter Kit

We received this amazing Illustrated Faith Starter Kit from Dayspring, but have been hesitant to get going. Okay, it’s mostly me…the girls would have loved to dive in as soon it arrived on the doorstep.

Note: If you haven’t heard of Illustrated Faith or Bible journaling, here’s a quick rundown. Shanna Noel is the creator of Illustrated Faith. She has lots of resources to help people journal in a creative way. Instead of just writing in a journal, you can paint, tape, tab, draw, sticker, and more! Her kits come with devotionals to walk you through your time in the Bible. There are lots of ways to experience the Word!

Here’s a look at all the goodies that come in the box:

Dayspring’s *Illustrated Faith Starter Kit includes:

– 1 devotional booklet, 14 devotionals
– 5 7″ x 8″ sheets of cardstock stickers (422 pieces – wordfetti, flags, tabs, alphabets, shapes)
– 1 .35 precision pen
– 2 washi tape dispensers, 10′ each
– 3 acrylic paint tubes
– 3 paint-it application cards
– 20 paper pieces
– 3 postcards
– 1 7″ x 8″ Bible journaling mat
– 5 idea starter sheets (painting, journaling with stickers, using tabs, using washi tape, using paper pieces)
– 1 storage box

It is actually on sale until tomorrow 3/8 for $35 while supplies last.

Here We Go

And…they went right to having me read the first day’s devotional on prayer and then they started working on their pages. (That paper piece Emily is holding the photo is actually upside down at the moment, but it says “70×7” which is the name of one of the songs her choir is singing for the Spring Praiseformance.)

First Finished Products

These aren’t the ones you will likely see when you search the #illustratedfaith or #biblejournaling hashtags on IG, but it’s a start! They were not ready for the paint yet, so we will work our way there….soon! We looked at the starter sheets, and it really does look pretty simple.

If you’re not into writing or painting in a Bible, I think the kit or any other Bible journaling items would be great to use in a journal too!

And if you’re already pro, let me know your best tips!
