First things first.
What in the world is a Journible?
Published by Reformation Heritage Books, Journibles are a pretty nifty Bible studying tool. Divided into two pages, each Journible has a page for copying down Scripture and a blank page on the opposite side for note taking. The ‘scribe’ page has a guide for which verses you’re meant to copy down that day, and even numbered lines to make for easier writing. I use a black colored pen for writing Scripture and a blue colored one for my notes; it helps keep my thoughts organized.
Here’s a picture of one of my Journible pages.
I’ve tried many different methods of Bible study, and I think journaling Scripture has been my favorite. I enjoy reading through bite-sized chunks of the Bible at a time. I’ve tried ‘Bible In A Year’ plans and, frankly, the deadline and quick pace stresses me out! It’s far less overwhelming for me to go slow and steady; plus, with reflecting via my notes on Scripture I find that more of the Word is sinking into my memory. Journibles aren’t terribly expensive, and I think the small investment is completely worth it! (Of course, if purchasing a Journible isn’t in your budget at the moment, you could totally replicate this exercise using a blank notebook.)
To date many books of the Bible are available in Journible format. My husband is working through Acts and Psalms, and I am working through one book containing Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians.
