THIS MONTH’S FEATURED ARTIST: Peggy Thibodeau

I am passionate about the Bible because it truly changed my life.  What an incredible and precious gift our Lord has given us in the living word!  However, I came to art later than most artists, in my late 30’s.  After more than a decade of being an artist, I discovered Bible journaling.  I began making art in my Bible.

Stories are incredible. A good narrative knits together snippets of characters’ lives to reveal purpose, understanding, relationships, and love. Shared stories are the highlight of conversations with family and friends! They define us. Little anecdotes reveal who we are and how we’re connected.

My adventure into the beautiful world of Bible Journaling began when I saw ideas people were sharing on InstaGram and wondered how they created such beautiful pages. That led to some YouTube searches in early 2015. I watched the steps they took and the various mediums they used. I found kits to order, downloads to print and make stickers, as well as books with ideas and how-to lessons. I’ve always enjoyed making truth cards using scripture, promises, goals and prayers and decorating with color and stickers. The transition into doing art in my bible came natural for me.

August 2019: Michele Bowden

As I look back at my heart for creative outlets, I can only attribute my work and my passion to “happy accidents” inspired by Bob Ross. I used to sit in my grandfather’s recliner and watch episode after episode of Mr. Ross’ artistic landscapes while painting along. Mr. Ross reminded viewers to relax, breathe, and just add a little happy tree over here, and another one over there. I know that is not how God the Creator did His initial work but it was how He started His work in me!

This is where I started—a $5 bible from Walmart, Crayola colored pencils, and child-like impatient scribbles. Journaling is not about talent, it’s about growing in God. Praise the Lord for that.

January 2019: Heidi Petterson

Hi I’m Heidi. I first began Bible journaling in a journal, around the end of 2014. In 2015 I started working in a regular NKJV Bible and in 2016 I received a journaling Bible for my birthday. I have loved art for as long as I can remember and I appreciate art history. In High School I “majored” in art and worked in a variety of different mediums. I then pursued photography in college but continued art on a recreational basis.
