How To Make Your Bible Study Time Creative #marketsofsunshine

 Here are some quick and easy tips to make your Bible study time creative.  They are proven to get you started off on the right foot with the right mindset.  Are you ready!  Let's go! #marketsofsunshine


Tip #1 - Change From Boring To Creative by making a mind shift of how you view your Bible study time.  Don't just read the Bible and research a topic. Take it a step further by writing down what you learned.  But in a creative way with art!  Catch my last blog post about How to make Creative Bible Study Notes in your art journal <<<click <<<

Tip #2 - Decorate your journal or notebook cover.  Take the cover from boring to amazing with just a few simple elements.  I'll show you how in the video below.  You don't even have to spend any money on supplies.  You probably have them already on hand. Or should!

Tip #3 - Add color to the pages of your study notes using markers, washi tape (I explain it in the video too) sticker and rubber stamps.

Tip #4 - Change your view.  By that I mean look out a window at nature or go outside if you can and sit in nature before you start reading and writing.  This will immediately help your mind to relax and put you in touch with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.  What better way to meditate on the things you are learning about him and his purposes.

Tip #5 - Meditate by thinking and talking about what you read and learned with someone who cares about what you are doing.  Don't waste time trying to share your excitement with someone who will miss the import of what you are feeling.  Share these spiritual gems with someone else is a Bible reader.

Now, to take this a step further I go in depth in my video over on my YouTube channel at Markets of Sunshine.  I hope you'll take the time to watch and Subscribe to my channel so you don't miss out on any of my Creative tutorials.

Thanks for being here and following along with me on this Creative Journey!

Warm Christian Love,


P.S. Keep Creating In Sunshine!

How to Make Creative Bible Study Notes In Your Art Journal


Greetings Friends!

I am so glad that you have found my blog post about this new project I'm participating in with my friend Alla Lily on IG.  She has invited all who want to join her to take 10 minutes a day and write in a art journal with creative study notes from our daily text scripture book.

Make your bible study time fun and relaxing by adding art to the page.  I'm documenting my journey on my YouTube channel, Markets of Sunshine.  I hope you will join us and follow along on IG using the hashtag #dailytextchalenge.  You can also follow along with me on my channel.


It's a fun way to start the habit of reading and meditating on the bible scriptures each day.  Taking 10 minutes a day will help me to stop and really think about how each verse affects my life.  


What better way to start a new habit than with friends!  We can encourage one another with our posts and get to know each other better too.  Plus, we will be learning more about our wonderful and loving God, Jehovah.  


A writing tool and a place to keep your notes.  That can be a paper journal or notebook. Or, a digital format on your computer.  It's up to you.


Try to make it a daily part of your routine. But, if you have to miss a day or just forget, don't beat yourself up.  Life is stressful enough without adding to it.  Just do your best and pick up from that day and keep moving forward.

If you don't have an IG account feel free to comment on my YouTube channel under any of the daily videos in the challenge.

If you think you want to participate and will benefit from this challenge please comment below.

We have a great and wonderful future ahead of us and what better way to keep our eye and mind focused on that promise than by daily bible study in a fun and creative way!

Warm Christian Love,

Marsha at Markets of Sunshine
