We had such a blast learning from Shanna and talking with her about this new movement Bible Art Journaling. If you missed the event, you can still watch the replay.

We’ve kept all the great conversation from our chat room archived below the video so you can learn from the Q&A. Thanks to all the expert participants who jumped in to moderate and answer the questions from newbies like me!

One of the questions that came up frequently was, where can I go to learn more advanced techniques? Your best free resource is the Illustrated Faith YouTube channel, which has tons of step-by-step tutorials. Or take a class! Shanna is traveling around the country and teaching in churches and Christian bookstores. You can find her schedule on, and we’re all dreaming about joining her on her craft retreats to Bellagio, Italy or the Alaskan Cruise!

Are you a complete beginner? So am I!

I’m starting to document my journey with the hashtag #illustratedfaithnewbie on Instagram @FaithGateway and every day I’m trying to do something new in my Beautiful Word Bible even if it’s as simple as sketching and coloring a flower. I was so inspired by the webinar and Shanna – you just have to jump right in and try something, right?

This is my first attempt at drawing flowers alongside one of my favorite verses, Isaiah 40:8

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of our God endures forever.


Last night was my first night Bible Art Journaling and here was the surprising thing that happened – it brought such peace to my household as my kids watched me do this alongside them during homework time. I was there to answer their homework questions, but there was something about them seeing me draw in my Bible… it brought out in them reassuring calm, and the normal bickering completely ceased for that wonderful 30 minutes! I may be on to something here!
