I cannot figure out how to color it and decorate. Plus my dinosaur computer won’t allow me to do much on such small memory. Having severe computer issues but would’ve loved to decorate and win one of these beautiful Bibles for a Christmas gift. We are financially unable to celebrate holidays or do much else since I am disabled and on SSI. Would be a great gift and blessing. Sorry.

I just knew to print extra pages, because the little one wanted in on it too. We colored and colored last night and this morning, while connecting with scripture, which I added to my blank column side of the picture. We love bible journaling as it brings us closer to the Word of God and to one another. I love that a tot hus age takes interest in it. Thanks for this awesome giveaway opportunity. Hoping we win.

I have never thought myself to be very talented/crafty but the bible pages I have seen are amazing and I would love to learn scripture and create like this. it is rather exciting!

I love the idea of spending time in the Bible this way. Often you can find me doodling in church while listening to my pastor preach. It’s the best way for me to listen and do something. Otherwise if I can’t doodle, I need tone writing his sermon word for word or I tune out. My brain and hands connect so much to listening. I love that I could be in scripture, while listening to him preach and not feeling guilty for busting out my coloring pencils. This is how our God made me. I love that you offer something “non traditional.” Thank you! It was fun to color.

So much fun….I loved completing the sample/contest sheet! All I had to use were my daughters washable markers so it was very colorful, but was great cause then she could color with me!
