What Is A Bible Study Notebook?

Bible reading plans and bible studies can help you grow in your faith and wisdom in the Lord. The Bible says faith comes by hearing. (Romans 10:17)

Reading out loud and writing out the Word is how you feed and nurture your faith.

A Bible Study Notebook helps you during your Bible reading time each day by letting the truth of God’s Word soak into your heart by writing out God’s word, your prayers and Bible notes.

This takes some discipline but is so worth it for the peace and strength you will get that only God can give.

How Do I Study The Bible And Take Notes?

Over the last few years, I’ve been getting up extra early to spend time in a short Bible study and personal quiet time before I head to my workouts and start my busy day. Although I enjoy Bible note taking, it’s not easy to get up at 4:30 AM when the alarm goes off, but it’s so worth it! I have discovered this is my very favorite time of day when I have the house and my thoughts to myself.

You can incorporate God’s Word into your life by purposefully writing out scriptures and prayers, reading them out loud and keeping a prayer journal to help you absorb the Word of God into your heart.

As you read the Bible, write down what stands out to you and what you’d like to research more into.

Is it okay to write in your Bible?

This topic is a bit debated, especially in the world of Bible Journaling where people write, color, paint, and do creative artwork in their Bibles.

I personally think it’s totally fine (and great!) to write and take notes in your Bible, but I understand that many people have been taught that this practice should be discouraged in order to keep God’s Word in reverence.

Do what you feel is best for you. My 30 Day Bible Study Notebook will be great for your Bible Journaling and Scripture writing needs either way.

How can I do my own Bible Study?

There are a few different ways to do your own study, but I would always suggest starting with prayer and asking God to lead you in what and how He’d like you to study.

Start with a simple process of saying a prayer, reading a short portion of God’s Word, and writing a few thoughts in a notebook. You can always add to this later.

We also have a Bible Study Planner to help you if you’d like more guidance to use it for your Bible Study lessons. 

How Do You Bible Journal In A Notebook?

Many Christians take the beginning of the year to start a Bible reading plan with the goal of reading the Bible in a year. Have you done that? There are so many different Bible Reading Plans to choose from and most of them are free Bible study tools we have access to. 

There are also topical Bible reading plans. These are one of my favorite Bible study tools! My Identity in Christ and the Attributes of God are two topic reading plans that are some of my favorites.

You start by reading the scripture for the day or the passage of scripture, write it out in your Bible journal or bible notebook, and then you can add your creativity to it by adding stickers, doodles, or whatever you’d like to make it your own style. 

If you want to do creative Bible art journaling in a notebook (especially if you don’t feel comfortable with artwork in your Bible or covering the words in your Bible), simply take any designs you want to try and use them in a notebook instead of directly in your Bible.Bible journaling in a Faith Planner with Karen Hunter

You might find it helpful to divide your notebook into sections, either by topics or by books of the Bible so that your designs are in a logical order. You can even use Bible tabs in your notebook to organize in this way.

Another option is to use a Christian planner to do your Bible journaling. This is a great way to document what the Lord is doing in your life during the current week or noting current world events. We like the Christian women’s planners from Dayspring.
