|How cute is her hair?|
For as long as I can remember, I have been
writing in the margins of
Bibles and in textbooks.
It appalls some of my friends but I can't
resist: it helps me retain what I learn.
It's a way to deepen my understanding,
to easily recall poignant concepts,
related history, and definitions of words.
I am a auditory and visual learner.
Listen and rewriting
verses ensures they stay with me.
Simply rewriting notes/verses deepens the experience of study.
So when I learned of the journaling Bible it was love at first
sight. Right now I am taking an online course with Stephanie Ackerman,
Bible doodler extraordinaire. The Illustrated Faith blog link is
on my blog roll.
This morning I found my first Bible verse,
isn't is amazing how the
perfect verse always presents itself?
You have taken up my cause, O Lord;
you have redeemed my life. You have seen the wrong
done to me. Uphold my cause. Lamentations 3:58-59 NIV
