I've been loving the Bible journaling I've been seeing online, and since I learn visually and by doing, I thought this might be a good idea for me. The bible I've been using is HUGE, and also has those ultra thin pages. I think most things, even pencil marks show through those pages, so I followed some links for "journaling bibles" and found one that I liked.
The overall size is nicer for carrying, the pages are slightly thicker,
and there is space on each page to write or draw notes and thoughts
about what I'm reading.
This is my first attempt. I used watercolor pencils because you can still read the text beneath. The page crinkled a bit when I added water, but not too badly, and it doesn't bother me. Let's just say it adds character!
If you'd like to see more examples from lots of folks, just follow this link to a google search.
