--Anyone! "Creativity" is not necessary. (More on that in part three!)
--Worshipping God. Spending time with Him. Praising Him with my talent. (Note: If the focus shifts from worshiping God to "perfecting our art" or showing it off to others, journaling becomes an idol!)
--During daily devotions. Take 10 minutes and do a "small" journal, or slowly work on a larger one over the course of several days to a week.
--Once a week. Take an hour or two and really plunge in!
--Kitchen table. Don't be afraid to take it over. Your family can eat TV dinners once in a while! (I'm only slightly kidding here.)
--Front porch. Where better to worship God with art than facing his creation? So...maybe that should actually say BACK porch...
--Couch/recliner/bed. Don't let the lack of a bunch of spreading-out space stop you! Sometimes all you need is a pack of colored pencils. That shouldn't bother your spouse too much in bed. ;-)
5. Which one?
--Study Bible. Many people have study Bibles with commentary-type notes scattered throughout. Do you really need Jamieson-Fausset-Brown's notes about the debate between 24-hour creation vs. the gap theory? Slap some white paint over all that and you're good to go!
--Dollar store Bible. Okay, so these are only one dollar. If you are super scared you're going to "mess up", where better than a Bible that only cost you one dollar? (The down side of these is there is hardly EVER any extra room, so unless you feel comfortable drawing directly over the words, this might not be a good option for you. You could always check out the thrift store, though, for a cheap Bible with some margin space.)
--Notebook. You can always rip out the page and start over if you feel like a mistake you made is THAT bad. And this is a good option if you want to Bible journal not in your Bible. Or if you have 17 Bibles you regularly switch between, you can keep your journaling all in one place.
--Printer paper. This is the easiest. One single sheet of paper you can spin and twist. And you can frame it. Or put it in a binder.
--Journaling Bible! They make actual Bibles with miles of room to write, draw, paint, color, scrapbook! Some have lines for the less drawing-actual-pictures-savvy folk like me. Some have wide margins just on the sides, some on the sides and bottom. Some are double-column, some single. Some even have text on one side and an entire blank page on every other side. Literally, if you could want it, they probably have it. And if they don't, the companies that make these Bibles are listening to us, so you can request a specific type of journaling layout. You just have to do a little research to find the Bible you like best. There are a lot of different versions, and websites like amazon and christianbook.com as well as Christian book stores carry a supply. Sometimes a particular Bible will be back ordered because one person will buy it and show all their friends and then EVERYONE wants that kind!
--Ex. 31:1-11; 35:30-35
--God gave these two men cunning knowledge in everything tabernacle- and ark-related, and they taught a whole bunch of people all the different techniques; so each person contributed in a different way, but they were all able to contribute.
Stay tuned for part two: using different mediums in your journaling.
