In March we're going to explore the topic, the WORD of GOD using the Monthly Bible Quilt Journal, "Building on a Firm Foundation."
If you don't have the Monthly BQJ, you can follow along with us using the BQ Calendar, another BQ journal, or whatever personal study materials you have that fit this particular life season.
I did a "Word" BQJ page on the circle template a couple years ago, which will give you another idea of how you can use our collection of verses this month.
Ready to march right in?? Let's get our calendar pages set up!
You may access the year's full list of references as a free printable with code FREELIST.
They're formatted as bookmarks, so cut out the one on the Word of God and let's get started!
Add the dates on the March calendar page by handwriting them, stamping, or applying stickers. Then add the daily verses, the next BQ Zoom chat, and whatever devotional goals you may have for the month.
Cut out the colorful "Word of God" title from the back of the journal to adhere to the page. Then color and decorate with washi tape or seasonal stickers however you'd like!
Thanks to Mel, a Bible Quilter in Texass, for curating our collection of verses this month!
Writing out the scriptures onto a flip card set helps us become familiar with the verses and the surrounding passages to understand it in context. Once completed, the flip cards make a handy personal reference or a resource to share with a friend who might need extra encouragement from the Word.
If you want to shorten the time spent prepping your flip cards, we've got a digital version of all the verses typed out and formatted. Just print and cut, then slide the cards onto a binder ring!
After you've gotten your scriptures gathered up, you're all set to begin the 2-page spread in the Monthly BQ Journal. It's also available as a printable if you don't have the journal or would like an extra to share with a friend.
I love watching these pages fill up with meaningful scripture that is applicable to our daily lives!
For the first day, I utilized the Genesis sticker sheet to portray a cheery sun.
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light." Genesis 1:3
In addition to the 2-page spread, we have the featured template of the month to decorate. It is called the Holy Bible and was designed by Sandra from Alabama. We can use verses from our reference list that impact us or be creative with other scriptures we've discovered along the way as we study this topic.
I'll share my completed pages in the Comments section below and invite you to do the same!
If you've got the BQ Calendar, it's about time to decorate March.
Let's be still and see what His Word has in store for us!
Mark your calendars for our next BQ events to discuss this topic and some other BQ pages you're inspired to be working on:
