Welcome to Gods word in Color. Doodling to express your faith and become closer to the word of God. This course will help you understand and learn the Bible and remember verses.
This is a beginner class with a total of nine lessons. I have included video lessons and PDF documents to help you along the way. The course is designed for those who are not currently Bible Journaling or are looking for a foundation to get started. This course does not include advanced techniques. This course should be taken at your own pace and can easily be done from the comfort of your home or on the go on a mobile device.
Your time is important to me so lessons are broken up into shorter videos.
This is not about being good at art, everyone’s images will be different depending on what is important to you. This is about spending time in the word and becoming stronger in your faith. This is about connection not art. You will learn some art though.

I am Christine Summers, and will be your instructor for this course. I have been bible journaling for about two years. I find it provides me a moment of peace and quiet to focus on Gods word. It has also become a great time to meditate on what God is trying to say and really opening my heart and listening. Like 60% of the world I am a visual learner. Looking at pictures and an array of colors in my bible make me happy and puts a smile on my face. When I share my doodles it has the same affect on others and that brings joy to my heart.
I have been teaching doodling and art classes to both preschoolers up to adults for 3 years. My classes are simplified, so you can not only learn but add your own ideas and make it yours.
You do not need to be a visual learner to take this course. Rather just have an open heart and interested to lean something new.
Do I have to write in my Bible?
If you are not comfortable drawing or writing in your bible, then don’t! Use any piece of paper, journal or notebook. A lot of people have more then one bible and will devote one bible to bible journaling.
Are supplies going to cost me a lot of money?
No! I do suggest starting the course prior to buying any additional supplies. I suggest all you need to get started is a pen, pencil, paper, and a Bible or Bible app. Index cards are great to have on hand too. A list of additional supplies is included in lesson 2.
I can’t draw and I am not creative.
I believe everyone can draw! You will learn building blocks to visualize your thoughts. This course is about using a different technique to become closer to Gods word. It is not about art, but rather ideas and connection.
I suggest setting time aside each day to complete the Course.
