Spring 2016 Collection!

The day is finally here that we have spent months working towards: the launch of the spring line of journals. I can honestly say that this is my favorite launch we have ever done. The Lord has been faithful in every step of this process. This has been one of the most soul scrubbing seasons, and creating these journals has been one of the hardest tasks, but the end product is pure worship to Him! He is good and He is the only reason why we can even create journals, Bible study tools, and other products that point to Jesus! Below you will find product descriptions for each of the products as well as free encouragement lock screens and Instagram images to remind you of gospel truth. We are celebrating God's faithfulness today!

Give Me Jesus Journal

It is hard to believe that this is the 6th version of the Give Me Jesus journal to come out. Just two years ago I was receiving the very first journals and praising God for making the dream into a reality. The vision for the Give Me Jesus journal is to encourage and equip women to get into the Word of God daily. The beginning of this journal has a section filled with prompts and practical Bible study tips. This is one of my favorite parts of the journal, and it is a section that I reread and fill out each time I start a new journal to focus my heart back on Jesus and stir my affections for Christ. 

The following pages of the journals are for you to journal the Word as you spend time with Jesus. In the middle of the journal is another heart check for you to pause, fill out the prompts, write Scripture, and pray. The end of the journal also has a space for you to look back through your journal and remember what God has done, a place for you to celebrate His faithfulness, and a space for you to follow through obedience. There are two versions of the Give Me Jesus journal. Below you will find a simple breakdown of their differences:

The journals come in two different covers that were hand-painted with gold foil lettering and gold spiral binding! You can find them here!

The Grace Upon Amazing Grace journal is a lined journal with Scripture throughout. I wanted this journal to have more meaning and prayed through the verses to include throughout to serve as reminders to you of who God is, who you are in Him, and how rich His grace is. The "grace upon amazing grace" lettering can also be found on this mug and this bookmark, and it can also be purchased with the journal as a bundle! It is our desire to see women fill these journals with truths, with prayer, with dreams, with notes, and even with lists and every day reminders. We live in the fullness of His grace upon amazing grace that never, ever runs out. 

Art Prints

This spring we are launching a line of art prints featuring abstract artwork I have painted for the covers of the journals and studies in the shop as well as our Birds Don't Worry, They Sing artwork. This series is inspired by the truths found in the Give Me Jesus journal and are designed to remind you to live a life that is worthy of the gospel of Jesus Christ! 

Live Life Beautifully Pen

We worked with Sarah Kim to letter the Live Life Beautifully journal and love getting to feature her lettering on this new pen! These pens are white with gold foil lettering and black ink (and can also be refilled once the ink runs out!). We hope that they remind you to live life beautifully for the glory of God!
