Looking For a Great Gift Idea?
We’re winding up the graduations for the season and I’m thinking you may have struggled to find that perfect legacy graduation gift.
I’m sorry I didn’t really come across this sooner for you but if I had, I would have had to think of it years sooner. My parents gave each one of us a new leather Thompson Chain-Reference Bible when we graduated high school and I believe they continue to do that for the grandchildren.
A few years back a friend of mine shared that she was journaling in her Bible to give the Bible to her son at graduation. This was the 2nd time she had done it and was now purchasing a new Bible in preparation for the third graduating child.
Legacy Gift Idea
That really struck me as an awesome legacy graduation gift. To think that that child would have forever notes and thoughts written by their mother in a Bible she used for several years. Inside that Bible would be thoughts she had while reading the scriptures, sermon points from a pastor, highlighted verses that were particularly special to her. It would be like having her with them every morning as they studied the Word.
This was all before the creative journaling became the latest craze.
Bible journaling is coloring directly in your Bible or a companion notebook.
I really hadn’t given much thought to the idea until recently. I knew that you could now purchase a notetaker’s Bible which I thought was an excellent idea. Finally giving us a little room to write down our thoughts. However, I had never really given much thought to this as being a way to drive the Word of God deeper into our hearts.
Then my friend Sara B. contacted me about her new Bible Journaling Packet for Beginners .. uh, that would be me. Sara has gone to all the trouble of putting together the things people are wanting as they try out this new craze.
Now Really ….. Isn’t that Just the Thing for a Lasting Legacy Gift!

Writer/Speaker sharing about how to make it through anything. I married a pastor with two boys who just lost their mom, I homeschooled my own children, led children’s ministries and women’s ministries in the church, and founded and led a homeschool support group. Had to give up much of this due to chronic pain. Like the Insurance, I know a lot because I’ve seen a lot.
