I share with you today what I’ve found so far that maybe will guide you too to find the perfect gift.

1. A Devotional Bible

I personally got a devotional bible and I think is a great gift for those who love to read the bible along with a devotional. Read this post about the (In)Courage Devotional Bible I recommend.

2. A Study Bible

I have like 3 study bibles. They’ve helped me so much with my growth as christian. They come in different versions. This makes a perfect gift for those who likes to spend some time in the bible.

3. A bible based Book

Not all books are good for christians or maybe do not edify us, maybe it’s not based in the bible. I purchased once a book about the life of David by Beth Moore and It helped me so much to understand his story.

4. Children’s Bible

When I got pregnant the first thing I bought for my baby was a bible. Kids also should receive these kind of gifts and start to learn about the bible.

5. Bible Journaling Starter Kit

This could be a great gift for those who love or maybe want to start trying bible journaling. There are plenty of kits available for example from Illustrated Faith. Look out for my bible journaling pinterest board for some ideas.

Faith and christian inspired gifts are a must. It maybe simple but with a great purpose. Bookmarks for bibles make a great gift idea. Click here to see plenty of them.

7. Antoined Oil for Prayer

So far, this is my favorite. I have a few antoined oils that I use in prayer. I recommend the Abba Oils, are thr ones that I use. Click here to see more.

8. Worship Music

A good worship music can help everyone to connect with God too. So maybe an Itunes gift card, a CD or some downloaded songs can be a great option.

9. Personalized Mug

I’ve made a search about this and found out some great options at Etsy. There is a lot of shops there offering customization. And you can add a bible verse to a mug. Here is a search for you Bible Verse Mug.

10. Scripture Print

Well, on this one there are plenty of options too on Etsy (Scripture Prints search). But you can also can make it yourself. You can create your own print with Creative Market. Even they give free fonts and clip art weekly! Use Canva to finish your print. Then, go to a local shop to print it out and included them in your gifts.

I thinks here is a pretty easy and affordable list of gifts for christians, for you and your loved ones. The most important is to edify!

How to make beautiful tabs for your bible

How to make beautiful tabs for your bible using washi tape

When I got my new devotional bible one of the first things I wanted to do was to put some tabs on. I wanted to do a little DIY project with it. So, I decided make my own beautiful bible tabs, super easy and affordable using washi tape. Yes! Washi tape!

Here is a simple step by step post of about how to use your favorite washi tape to create your tabs.

1. First, choose your washi tape. If you don’t have washi tape you can buy some online at Etsy, EBay, Amazon or at any hobby or craft retailer near you. You can find affordable prices on washi tape, depending on the size and how many rolls contains the package. Prices vary from $19.99 to $1.00. Yes! Let me give you a tip on this. On my last trip to Florida I got plenty of washi tape for only $1 at Dollar Tree stores. Cheap and beautiful! 😀

2. We want to put a tab on the first page of each book of the bible. That means, there is work to do, since we have 66 books. But I promise this will only take you one to two hours of your time. You can use some sticky notes to mark your pages prior the tabs for easy finding.

3. Now let’s start! Cut a little piece of washi tape with your hand or use scissors; since washi tape it’s so easy to manage. Then start putting the washi tape on the first page of the book of Genesis. (See the photo for reference). Then, you will continue do the same step on every first page of every book. You can try different positions for the washi tape (See photo).

And that’s It! It’s easy!

Tips:

1. Use different colors and patterns if you like. Or use one color as I did. I loved so much the gold washi tape that decided to use it on all the pages.

2. Take your time to make a good search for the perfect washi tape for you. There is plenty of options on Etsy. Or visit the Dollar Tree Stores 😉😉😉.

Have fun and enjoy the moment.

Knowing the Purpose of Bible Journaling

Knowing the Purpose of Bible Journaling

When I started practicing bible journaling I did not even know how to start. I felt a bit weird when using my bible to color, draw and paint. Maybe you’re going through the same thing. However, I gave myself the task of seeking information and knowing the primary purpose for bible journaling.

While I had my moments studying the bible, I always had the habit of writing my bible, of making small drawings and of marking it. But I never thought it would come to this. And it is really fascinating what we can do and the creativity that can emerge in us if we do it with the real purpose.  Yes! The bible journaling has a particular purpose and today we are going to discover it.

Knowing the Purpose of Bible Journaling

  • To get closer!

Approaching God every day should be our main purpose while practicing Bible journaling. If we go with this in mind, surely we will have a supernatural experience with God in His presence. Our approach should always be “looking for His face” and not looking for the materials with which we are going to use.

  • Deepen the word!

Our second purpose must be to seek deeper in the Word of God. The Bible says in Psalm 119: 105:

Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

The word of God guides our way, so going deeper in the word will help us in our daily lives and give us firmness in our spiritual life.

Knowing the Purpose of Bible Journaling 2

  • Help in prayer!

I believe that when we set our hearts to fill ourselves with the word of God we will have words in our mouths to pray, intercede and cry out to God for others. Prayer is a key that opens doors in our life. And while something of creativity comes into our mind, we must take the word into consideration to pray first.  As says in Psalm 54:2

Hear my prayer, O God;
Listen to the words of my mouth.

  • Get creative!

After we have read, deepened and prayed, I am 100% sure that your creativity will surface in such a way that you can clearly represent what you have understood or what God has whispered in your heart.  God is our creator, God IS the creator of the heavens and the earth. Our creativity flows from His Spirit.  Genesis 1:1 says: In the beginning God (Elohim) created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth (AMP).

Let your creativity be directed by the Spirit and enjoy every moment in HIS great presence.
