FAMILY/ Leaving A Legacy/ Spiritual

I Am A Scribe and it is Changing My Life

pen and journal

I have found a way of studying the Scriptures that has been changing me in profound ways.  I’m not sure how I stumbled upon it while searching through Amazon, but I did, and I believe God’s own hand led me right to this profound way of studying His words. 

I stumbled upon the 17:18 series.  I was intrigued the minute I saw the words “Journible” & “Scribe.”

 I know that I am not alone when it comes to learning much more deeply and retaining more knowledge when I write something out– kinesthetically–so the idea that there was a such a simple way to study Scripture that utilized this way of learning really excited me.

The Purpose of Journible –(taken from my book journible I Timothy-Hebrews)
Engagement:The Journible is a profoundly simple attempt to aid a person’s ability to engage the Word of God by slowing down the process of simply reading the test.  The book is organized so that the “scribe” can slowly and thoughtfully engage the text while leaving plenty of room to write comments and question about the text.
Legacy: Journibles provide a legacy to pass on from one generation to the next. The journible creates an opportunity for one generation to communicate in writing to the next generation their insights and personal application of the test.
How To Use:This book is organized so that the scribe (you) will hand write your very own copy of I Timothy-Hebrews. You will be writing the text of the Bible only on the right hand page of the book.  This should make for easier writing and also allows ample space on the left page of your open text to write your own notes and comments.  From time to time, a question or word will be lightly printed on the left page; these questions are to aide in further study, but should not interfere with your own notes and comments.  This means that you are encouraged to not only write your own “copy” of the Bible, but to also write your own notes concerning the text.

journal 17:18 series

 I ordered the specific journal of 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus Philemon & Hebrews.  I am just finishing 1 Timothy and can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed this process.  It is simply writing out 3-5 verses a day, and I love it.  My “chemo brain” {grin} is retaining it and I know it is changing me, my heart and my thought processes.

 I especially love the “legacy” idea.  You all know as a 2 time cancer survivor I am keenly aware that life on this earth is short and can be cut short at anytime.  What better legacy can I leave then the written Word of God and what it taught my heart as I read it?  Gives me chills to think about what a simple way the 17:18 series has given me to do just that.

I was not paid to write this, but if you are interested in becoming a scribe and getting your own 17:18 series Journible,  use this link to order and I will receive a small compensation for sharing the link.  Let me know in the comments if you did!  I’m excited to see how many people this appeals to.

    This is intriguing to me. I believe I remember her talking about writing a copy of Scriptures for her children. Now, again, I’m hearing this idea and thinking this is something I can try. I loved hearing that it is changing you. Thank you for sharing!

    I just LOVE this idea Amy! I read my Bible pretty much every day and I struggle to retain. I also know that I remember things better if I write notes. So- How did I not think of this before? WOW! I didn’t order it yet, but I am going to! THANKS for sharing!

    I love this idea! Writing/rewriting has always been my mode of study. I used to rewrite all my notes to study for tests. Definitely going to give this a closer look.
