Illuminate Your Story Journal

Learn to create your own beautiful illuminated letters with this how-to journal.

Use the almost-lost art of illuminating letters to enhance your writing, Bible journaling, or sermon note-taking. Rich illustrated manuscripts in the Museum of the Bible’s collection inspired these gorgeous letters. Easy to follow instructions, practice pages, and encouragements guide you through the creation of amazing start letters, flourishes, and more.

Faith & Lettering Journal

New from professional letterer Krystal Whitten! With guides, instructions, and tutorials, this is a fun and inspiring way to create beauty with words. It is the perfect place for journalers to practice Bible journaling, lettering quotes and verses, or decorating a page with original thoughts and plans. Exploring your God-given creativity has never been so rewarding.

Krystal Whitten
Drawing from more than ten years of graphic design experience, Krystal Whitten has cultivated a large following of creatives on Instagram who have embraced her unique combination of lettering and faith.

Krystal is the creator of The Lettering Prayer Journal and launched her stationery and gift line in summer 2017. She lives in Land O’Lakes, Florida with her husband, Andy, and two children, Pierce and Haven.

The Illustrated Word
Museum of the Bible Books

Create your own masterpiece with this journal that has forty glorious illustrations from ancient manuscripts that have been recreated as line drawings. Just as medieval monks brought Scripture to life through intricate inked illustrations in handwritten manuscripts hundreds of years ago, you can now create your own stunning keepsake that will be treasured for years to come.

Museum of the Bible Books

The MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE opened it’s 40- foot bronze entry doors in Washington, D.C. in November 2017 and marked an unprecedented historical first in Bible history. The one-of-a-kind collection is housed in a 430,000-square-foot building just two blocks from the National Mall and three blocks from the nation’s Capitol. The largest single museum in Washington D.C., and the first in the world to focus on honoring the Bible, the Museum provides guests with an immersive and personalized experience as they explore the history, narrative, and global impact of the Bible. Worthy Publishing Group and Museum of the Bible have teamed up to form a new book-publishing imprint, Museum of the Bible Books.

My Thoughts

These journals are GORGEOUS! Such a creative take on journaling. 

Illuminate Your Story is filled with information on the process and history of lettering. Like how the priests used to illustrate the Bible when they would hand copy the script. With step-by-step instructions, this journal will help you create your very own Illuminated Journal. With verses and pages for journaling, this is the perfect gift for the creative doodler. There are more pages for practicing lettering than there are for writing journal entries. A pen holder is included, as well as a bookmark and elastic band to keep the book closed. 

Faith & Lettering takes journaling to a whole new level. With pages for writing standard journal entries, bullet journaling, pages with grid lines for practicing lettering, and lots of fun images to learn how to draw. I think this one is my personal favorite of the three. Fun, colorful, and a larger variety of styles. A pen holder is included. This book is filled with scripture and inspirational quotes that are beautifully crafted by the author. 

The Illustrated Word has a very unique take. Filled with pictures of ancient illustrations on one page and a coloring book page inspired by the said picture on the next page. It is incredible to see the detail and intricacies of the ancient illustrations. The time and thought that had to have gone into each one is astounding. This journal is perfect for those who love coloring books. This journal also has the most lined pages for standard journaling.

My thanks to Worthy Publishing Group for providing complimentary copies of each of these journals. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
