For ages people have been writing important and/or personal things down in the margins of the Bible. And a lot of artists have made beautiful works of art based on biblical texts and subjects.
A newer trend is drawing, painting and writing in the Bible, in the margins or over the text on the pages, or in a special journal: Bible (Art) Journaling. You don’t have to be an artist to join the world of Bible (Art) Journaling. The time you spend with God and with His Word is more important than the product and the beauty of the page you are creating.
