When I was asked if I wanted to review a Bible journaling kit, I knew I needed to say yes – and not so much for myself as my daughter, who is into all things involving pencils, pens, paper, words, crafts, and stickers. Of course, thankfully, she’s also into the Bible.
So, together, with my 9-year-old daughter, Cate, I bring you a review of the Bible Journaling Kit from Ellie Claire, a division of Worthy Publishing Group. And we’ll start with her words:
I like the pen because it doesn’t go through the pages. I also like the colored twist pencils because say you have words like “darkness” and “light,” then you can use different colors to make them stand out.
The stickers can label things for you. Like in the story of Nicodemus, you can use the sticker that says “fresh start” because he was born again. I like the sticker labels because they can mark special pages and you won’t have to go looking through the entire Bible for your favorite passages. The case can fit on most Bibles and it even has one of my favorite verses (Phil. 4:8) on it.
I like the idea of a journaling Bible because it’s like a notebook in the Bible. Then when you are reading something you can see your notes and reread them to have answers. This kit helps with that.
Cate also wanted to make sure I told you the kit doesn’t come with an actual journaling Bible, but I did recently buy her this one. And this kit works well with it!

I do write in my Bible, underline, put stars by certain verses, etc. I quit highlighting long ago because it would always bleed through.
I use the Bible on my phone so often now, but I have a Bible with margins, and I love writing notes & thoughts in there. I really should get back to that. I found some really great pens that are erasable AND don’t bleed. Win!

I love her review and she has a great favorite verse!
I usually use the app these days so I have lots of differently colored highlights but no doodles. I’d love to get into Bible journaling though!
I use an app so much more too, but I do love my journaling Bible. I don’t get too creative, but I do like having room to write notes and thoughts.
I JUST ordered Liz a big girl bible yesterday for Christmas. This would be perfect to go along with it! Thanks, Cate!!
After Cate loved this kit so much, I ordered her some more stickers and embellishments for her stocking! 🙂
I keep wanting to get into Bible journaling but can’t seem to find the time. However, I’ve always enjoyed “traditional” journaling in addition to my Bible reading 🙂
For real, I don’t need another hobby either. 🙂
