My Weekly Bible Journaling #22–The Book of Ruth / 1st Samuel


Hello and Welcome!

I am calling this the summer of doctors. Every week someone has to be seen by one. It has become crazy! This past week we saw 2 doctors. This coming week 3 kids will be at camp and three more will see a doctor. I don’t think we have ever seen so many doctors before!

Hopefully this week will be slightly quieter with just my younger four kids at home. I am hoping I can get more Bible Journaling done during naptime…

This is what I worked on in my Beautiful Word Coloring Bible:


When I got started coloring this page I made a mistake and I fixed it by covering it with acrylic paint and stickers. The first part of this verse was not spoken to God but it has been my prayer to him many times.

“May I continue to find favor in your eyes, my lord,” she said. “You have put me at ease by speaking kindly to your servant—though I do not have the standing of one of your servants.” – Ruth 2:13


I finished up the book of Ruth this week. I love how this interesting woman is apart of Jesus’ lineage.

“The Lord bless you, my daughter,” he replied. “This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor. -Ruth 3:10

I have always loved the story of Hannah praying for a child. Many times we have asked God for something important – like a child. Sometimes we don’t feel or see that God is listening to us. But He does. He always knows what is best for us and what is the right time for Him to give us his answer.

Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.” She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast. – 1 Samuel 1: 17 – 18



My 14 year old son took this picture of one of my yellow roses. So bright and happy looking!

    My yellow roses are doing great this year as well! This is the summer of doctors for us too…all the stuff I try to squeeze in in these summer months. I love the 1 Samuel illustration this week

  2. Peabea says:

    Really like the glimmering flower. Journaling is such a great way to dig deeper when forming what we want to share with what we’ve just read. I think picking and choosing the parts of the scripture that stands out has more readily helped me to make my notes better as I try to visualize how I want to journal the page. Yours are very lovely.

      Journaling has really helped me and my relationship with the Lord. I have read the Bible more this year than ever before!

    So pretty! We haven’t actually seen a doctor yet this summer. Makes up for last summer when I may as well have moved in with them. Hopefully you get a slightly more peaceful week #twinklytuesday

    • Dani says:

      LOL! I feel like we are about to move in with these doctors as well. I went in on Wednesday and the front desk lady greeted me by name and knew who I was seeing without even looking!

  4. Laurie says:

    Beautiful pages! The acrylics and stickers worked well. Seems that Doctor visits always tend to come in groups. Hang in there!

    I’ve never seen a journaling Bible before but I have a daughter that it would be perfect for and her birthday is coming up!
    Happy to have found your post through the Writer Wednesday blog party.

  7. Teresa B says:

    All pages are so beautiful,even the one you had to repaint. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party and enjoy the rest of your week!

  8. Bettie G says:

    These are so beautiful! I love your artwork, and the ways that it enhances the Scriptures that have touched your heart. I’m blessed to be your neighbor over at #TuneInThursday this week!

  9. Rachel says:

    I love the idea of using acrylic paint, but how do you do it so the page doesn’t get all wrinkly from the moisture of the paint??

    • Dani says:

      It really doesn’t get that wet with acrylic paint. It dries really fast and if it does get wrinkly just keep your Bible shut over night and it flattens out!

  10. Sheena says:

    I love Bible journaling. Your work is beautiful!! I so understand the everyone being sick. I have been sick for three weeks and my son had to go to the doctor yesterday.

Let me know what you think or if you have a question!
