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.

6. Handmade Bookmarks

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 😉😉😉.

3. Want more ideas of using washi tape in your bible? Check out this other post.

Have fun and enjoy the moment.

Beautiful Affordable Tools for Bible Journaling you need to know + Giveaway!

In my journey with the bible journaling I have learned to look for various tools that are affordable but beautiful to give free rein to my creativity. Today I want to share several tools that I have been able to find and I am currently using for bible journaling.  They are affordable and beautiful, I know you will love them! – Plus, I’m celebrating the community and summer with a Giveaway!

Beautiful Affordable Tools For Bible Journaling You Need To Know

Beautiful Affordable Tools for Bible Journaling you need to know:

  • Washi Tape

One of my favorite tools is the washi tape. Right now I have a box full of them. I have gotten them in different places, but the most economical strategy to get the washi tape for me has been in Ebay auctions. In just one month I’ve got more than 10 washi tapes for less than $ 1.00 each.   Also, I got several washi tapes in Etsy. But if you are looking for tapes with beautiful patterns at a low cost, Ebay can be an alternative.  Here’s a search in Ebay.

  • Paper Clips

At first I did not use paperclips. I did not see a great use in them for bible journaling, but only for marking the pages. However, I discovered that I could buy ribbons and fabrics and decorate my paperclips in a very easy and affordable way.  If you are like me, you love having your beautiful bible in every aspect. Sure, you’ll like to try this strategy. Where do I get ribbons and fabrics? At the nearest discount stores. With half a yard of ribbons or fabric you can decorate a lot of paper clips! I have some decorated paperclips in my Shop HERE!

  • Die Cuts

I love the die cuts! These are an easy way to make journaling and add a little color and personality to what you are doing.  My favorites ones and that I’ve always used are those from Shanna Noel and her brand Illustrated Faith. A few months back I was able to get like 5 packages at an excellent price with a discount coupon at DaySpring.  Every month I always checked when they are with additional discount and I take the opportunity to buy them.

  • Watercolor Paint

The watercolor painting I’m using right now, I bought it at Walmart. Here you can get several painting options from $ 4.00 to $ 11.00. Which I consider quite reasonable, since you can mix the colors and obtain different tones according to your need. To this I also added a set of brushes. That cost me no more than $ 7.00.  Here I made a search for you to look for more options: HERE!

  • Colored Pencils

Ok, in this I have to tell you that I have like 3 boxes of colored pencils from different stores. It is that the colored pencils are easy to use that you have to have several and many colors of course.  I got them at, Walmart and Marshalls (Yes! at Marshalls).  One of the places I always buy something for my office is at Marshalls. Many times they have available sets and boxes of colored pencils, markers, washi tape and beautiful notebooks (I always end up buying at least one).

Here’s a Pinterest search I did with posts that includes tons of bible journaling tools and supplies: (you can follow my Bible Journaling Pinterest Board for more ideas HERE)

How trust will bring you security

Today I want to share with you how trust will bring you security based on Psalm 91.  Plus give you some cards for bible journaling, as well as some tabs for you to enjoy it! I know you will love it.

How trust will bring you security free bible journaling cards and tabs

How trust will bring you security

During this season in my life, where I have gone through a few difficult processes, this Psalm 91 verse has given me strength. In the same way that I have received the consolation and promises of God for my life, so I want to share this feeling with you.

This psalm, assures us that if we remain under the presence and cover of our God, He does not assure their protection and care. There may be difficult and even dangerous moments for our lives, but there is a promise from God to protect us and to guard us against such circumstances. Psalm 91:1 says:

He who [a]dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].

Being honest with you during these weeks I have needed so much of the Father’s coverage of my life. And while I decided to look for His presence I received the rest I needed so much.

I have been able to experience what it is to trust in God when things are not going well. One word I can share with you today is security. The security we need can only be found in God.  Are you in need of security today?

I remind you that if you remain in His presence He will take care of you and nothing will hurt you.
