I’m Sandy Allnock, instructor for this class. I’d like to share a little about me and my journey with you! This video below is also on my Bible Journaling channel (subscribe to that channel for tutorials on a variety of techniques and verses – not on pages in this class)….if you can’t see the video below, click HERE to see it on YouTube.
A little about what’s to come for students in Seeing the Scriptures class – very little supplies are needed, and experience as an artist or student of the Bible are not required!
If you do your homework as I hope you will, you’ll need whatever your favorite tools and mediums are. There are no tutorials in this class for specific pages – the way it’s formatted:
A Bible is a very personal purchase; I’ve bought enough of them now that I know a few things that probably apply to most all:
My ranking below is based on my own personal usage – my go-to Bibles that I reach for, and they’re listed below in my ranking – first for Journaling Bibles, second for Specialty Bibles with preprinted art to color. The first is my Bible that I have carried to church and Bible studies with me for years, but it’s only available in limited locations now; however the CONTENTS of the Bible are almost identical as in the “Journal the Word” Bible, which is listed as #2. Journal the Word is also MUCH more cost effective, since it doesn’t have the swanky cover.
I highly recommend supporting Christian vendors or at least small businesses; while Amazon may give you a dollar or three off, it’s incredibly important to support our small businesses who provide us with shopping options. Links on this site are affiliate links, which means if you click on one of my links then I may receive a small commission on the sale, at no cost to you, which supports my work and ministry.
The selection below is of the Bibles I own and use most, by order of most- to least- used.
My most often used supplies:
Share your work in our Student Facebook group! Note that it’s not an all-Christian group, but it’s a safe place to post your art and get feedback. (The Bible Journaling group closed in 2022.)
