Wife, Mummy, Nurse: ESV Illuminated Bible, Art Journaling Edition

ESV Illuminated Bible, Art Journaling Edition

This is a sponsored post and contains affiliate links. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I did. This year from February on has been hard (which is one reason for the lack of blog posts). February through April and August through October have been months where I feel like I have been in survival mode health wise. Sometimes, it is easy for me to be down emotionally and feel like the world is collapsing around me. I was needing to be around loved ones this Thanksgiving, along with meditating on God's word.

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! Psalm 95:2
Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name! Psalm 97:12

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! Psalms 100:4

Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Psalm 105:1

Even in my suffering and adversity these verses help me to remember to give thanks to God-to praise him and call upon his name.

I try to read my Bible in the morning before my children get up. I am not always able to do this, and if I don't I try to do it in the afternoon.

One of my favorite Bibles is the ESV Illuminated Bible, Art Journaling Edition
The ESV Illuminated Bible places the full ESV text alongside over
500 elegantly hand-lettered gold ink illustrations by renowned
artist Dana Tanamachi. Printed on thick cream-colored paper, the
Bible's single-column text setting and wide margins provide
generous space for additional notes, prayers, and designs—inviting
readers to creatively engage with and reflect on the beauty of God's word.

A few brief thoughts:
When I saw that it was a journaling Bible, I assumed that it would have lines over to the side of the page to jot down notes and draw/paint, but it doesn't. It leaves a wider space, so if you choose to write down notes or illustrate what you have read, you still can. I love that it has black lettering throughout the Bible. The illustrations, by Dana, are gorgeous.

A few drawbacks: There's no concordance. There are no cross references at the bottom of the pages. So, if you are looking for a study Bible, this is not it.
