Do you love to color? For me, it is my new favorite hobby!! I love to be creative, but I can't really draw and coming up with something originally is sometimes mentally draining. Coloring solves those problems for me. I can create something beautiful without much "brain drain". It actually is relaxing to do! Over the past several months I have done several posts featuring different coloring books based on various themes. Here are all the posts I have done so you can easily find the type of coloring book you would love!

Think On These Things {May}

He used them to create the world. We can build and destroy a person's life with them. They are medicine to the soul, and sometimes they are weapons. Words are powerful. Join me in May as we go through verses related to what words can do in our lives and the lives of others. It is an opportunity to "Think On These Things". These verses can be used to meditate on, journal about in a Bible (see below about what I use.), or write out in a separate journal. It is my prayer that you will be blessed as you focus on His Words.




Instagram
During the month I try to post my thoughts on the verses on Instagram. If you would like to follow me you can find me here. Also, if you are posting your own thoughts there please use the hashtag #thinkonthesethings. I would love to read how God speaks to you!!

There are many ways you can use these verses. You can read and meditate on them. You can write them out as you meditate on them. You can read them and then write about them in a journal or journaling Bible. Here are some of the items I use...

A single column journaling Bible...

ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (TruTone, Chestnut, Leaves Design)
ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (Black)
ESV Single Column Journaling Bible (Brown, Flap with Strap)

Some highlighters {These are my absolute favorites!}...

Eco Highlighter Pencils - Set of 5 Colors

Black pens...

Black Ink Pen Set

If you are writing out these verses may I suggest these journals...

Studio Oh! Journals-There are several styles on Amazon if you search for them. I love them because they lay flat and make writing easier (especially since I am left-handed).
