It's done

I'm really glad that I started a Lent journal this year-- it's been something that I've really enjoyed making. I also love how it's made me reflect on different aspects of my faith and write them down to share with others (I'm especially excited for my kids to read it when they get older!)

And yet, it also seems like the most personal thing I've done, as I feel a certain amount of vulnerability when I share it with others. Like, this is me, this is what I think and believe.

Here are the last of the pages that I made:

I read the book Sex God by Rob Bell during lent and liked a few of his quotes. He had questions in the back, so I answered one of them in my journal, in a 6x12 page, folded in half.

I took this photo when I took communion with my Bible study group.

This is the back of the page:

This next page was for Ali Edward's Weekend Creative Challenge:

And my journaling on the back:

We watched a short video in church on Sunday morning and these words were in it:

So, now that it's done, I took it to My Scrap Shoppe on Tuesday and bound it with Marcy's bind-it-all (love that gadget!)

Thanks for looking!
