The Best Books I Read in 2016

I had huge plans for reading in 2016 that I fell way short on, but still really enjoyed most of what I read with a few exceptions. (I've decided that life is way too short to spend on bad books.  I use the method of reading books that is described in Lit! that I only have to read 100 pages minus my current age into the book and make a decision from there... that frees me up so I don't have to commit to read a book all the way through if I'm not loving it.)

Doodle Wednesday! Sheep and birds

I had waaaay too much fun drawing these sheep and birds!  I hope you enjoy them too.  If you doodle them, be sure to share them on social media with the hashtag #journalanddoodle  I'd love to see them!

The Bible reading plan I'm using for 2017

Last year I read a biography on George Muller that deeply affected me.  It spoke of the miracles he witnessed with money coming in for the orphanage he created, about his preaching and life, but mainly I was struck by his prayer life.

Doodle with me Wednesday! Ribbon Banners!

Each Wednesday this year I'm going to have a Doodle with me blog post where we'll go step by step over simple doodles you can use in your Bible journals, bullet journals, or on napkins in coffee shops.

Today we'll kick things off with ribbon banners!  These are wonderful for page headers, titles, or to highlight main ideas on a page, and they're simple to do and have endless variations!

You can print off a PDF file of each of these to keep and practice with.  If you are really unsure of your ability to draw, print it off and lay a piece of paper over the top and trace each step until you get it.  Click the picture below to be taken to the pdf download.

Coming up next!
