What is Illustrated Faith?

At DaySpring, we feel blessed to partner with Illustrated Faith Founder Shanna Noel to bring light to the art of Bible journalinga new, fresh way to connect with Scripture by combining faith and art.

A wife and mother of two, Shanna is a lifelong scrapbooker who started using her passion and a journaling Bible to begin illustrating and documenting her faith… right in her Bible! Her first Instagram post ignited a wildfire that just keeps growing, helping women and men connect with God’s Word in amazing new ways.

Today, we offer beautiful and inspirational Illustrated Faith-branded Bible journaling supplies from both DaySpring and from Bella Blvd—maker of positively gorgeous, faith-focused scrapbooking supplies.

So, what is Bible journaling? How do I do it? Bible journaling has become a tremendously popular new way to connect with Scripture in a creative way by combining faith and art. How to Bible journal is entirely up to you—write, draw, or paint your thoughts and reflections in your Bible or in a lovely journal. The possibilities are quite literally endless. We’ll help by providing fresh, bold, colorful ideas from Shanna and Illustrated Faith, plus plenty of goodies and supplies to help you. For some quick, fun, and easy instructions, download Shanna’s Noel's 7 Steps to Illustrating Your Faith.

Not particularly “artistic?” No worries! Use stickers, printed papers or beautiful cardstock (like our Sadie Robertson Scripture Shareables or Be Yourself Sticky Notes) in your Bible. Or be bold with a splash of paint, Illustrated Faith washi tape, some beautiful lettering, or bright, colorful illustrations with colored pencils.

Whatever method you prefer for Bible or art journaling, the heart remains the same—connecting with God’s Word in a fresh, new way. Begin by spending time with God (perhaps listen to worship music or read a great devotional), then pray about it, write it down in your Bible or journal, and then draw, paint, color (or even use Bible journaling stickers!) to bring that beautiful idea to life. Forget the rules, and connect with God in whichever way you prefer!
