Hello, wonderful Hearters! Happy Friday! I hope you've had an amazing week. It's finally the weekend! Let’s just all promise to sleep in tomorrow.

Today I have a new article for you. But before I begin, I know I didn't post an article yesterday, but to be fair, I am a part-time childcare worker. If you work in this field, then you understand how exhausting it is (but how much joy you get from this job as well). But here I am, making a promised article today. 😁

In today's articles, I'll be discussing a form of Bible journaling specifically focused on note-taking. Some people call this “Bible Wrecking” but I really am not a fan of that name, so here it will continue to be Bible journaling.

I wrote on my blog (https://huntkaym.wixsite.com/allthelittlethings) a post about Bible journaling. If you're interested, check it out and leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you!

What Is Bible Journaling — Note Taking?

Unlike drawing in your Bible, note taking in your Bible is equally as personal and effective. There are many ways to take notes. None are wrong, it just depends on your personal preference.

Here are some tips to make the best out of your note-taking journey in God's beautiful Word.


When taking notes, regardless of if it's in a Bible or notebook, whether you’re drawing on the page or note, underlining is very important.

This helps you decipher the important elements from the passage and what stood out to you. After that, make a quick note in the margin or in a notebook as to why you underlined it. That way, when you look back at it, you'll understand why. The best part is, each time you read it, you'll find different things. Record every one.

Highlight, Highlight, Highlight

I cannot stress this enough. Highlighting is probably one of the best things you can do besides underlining.

For me, I typically highlight and underline everything that stands out to me. Each time I go back, a different color is added. Then your pages will look like a rainbow. Trust me, it's very mesmerizing.

Using color can be beneficial, too. You can use different colored highlighters, pens. And adding a color coding system would be a great help, too!

Making a color coding system could be very helpful when using your highlighters and underlining. Make a quick note if you'd like, then proceed to note-taking.

Sticky Notes

I mean, you can never go wrong with sticky notes. They come in various colors and can help if you run out of space but don't want to switch to a notebook.

If you're worried, the sticky notes might lose their stickiness after a while, you can use washi tape to keep it taped to the page.

Verse Mapping and Connecting

For those of you who see those Bible pages with lines all over it and love it, this might be the technique for you. The best person to explain this process is Jordan Lee Dooley. You can find her on YouTube where she explains this process. I would definitely recommend checking her content out.

That’s about all I have for you, loves. I hope this was helpful to you and encourages you.

Like always, I hope you have an amazing rest of your day and week. Remember to keep smiling. You never know who will need it.
