Man I am behind on EVERYTHING so I am just going to jump in and get you update on what is going on with Documented Faith since January. I have decided to run the Documented Faith site with this blog so there is no way anyone can't catch up, join in or read along.
To take a look at how I set up my binder, you can go here. I have decided that I am using Documented Faith Binder for gratitude, prayers, verses, quotes and doodling. Not too far off from my original thoughts but I will admit that I was so used to using the Moleskin that it has taken me 7 weeks to really get into the groove.
Here is what I decided to do: Whatever I want, whenever I want, where I want. Just because there is a specific space for each day of the week does not mean you have to stay in those lines...and I would be the first one to remind you of that but when it came to doing it myself, I found that I was unconsciously restricting myself to the area..until now.
Here is an example of how regardless of the "space" for a particular day, I just wrote out what I wanted (this is the week 6 verses) and then I created a box all the way around it and did not care whether it fell into one days space or the other..
Are you pickin up what I am puttin down?
If you look closely at the doodle, you will see the gray line that runs down the center. That is the image that is printed on the page to section off the spaces for each day. It seems I am now quite the rebel and am not only going outside the lines but over them and right through them and guess what???
It is OKAY!
To check out what I have been posting for the last 7 weeks, jump over to the Documented Faith site and simply do as you wish. Some just check in each week to read the verse, some choose to have the verse sent to them via email weekly, some download the message and the verse and create in their binder, planner or art journal. Like I said, you get to do what you want, when you want wherever you want. Yay, again.
In addition to the Monthly focus word and the weekly verses that are sent out, there is also a "companion kit" that is available to purchase that compliments the Documented Faith Binder but was really created so that you can use it with whatever style of planner, binder or journal you are using. The thought was that each month there would be a new kit but when I used the words "January" and "February" to name the kits, people that were just joining in with Documented Faith felt behind before they started and THAT IS NOT WHAT I WANT.
Remember the phrase "you get to do what you want, when you want, wherever you want" so now each monthly kit is named after that months focus word. Example, January's word was PRAY. February's word is LOVE
The kits are always available (until sold out and re-stocked) so that you can use them ....when you want, wherever you want (you might get sick of reading that!) but it is true and worth repeating.
In the LOVE kit there are five coloring loose pages that I have been coloring with Prismacolor markers. I have laminated them. punched holes and have added them to my binder as dividers (well, Dashboards but you know how I think that dashboards are in cars) and speaking of dividers and laminating, I also have been laminating the dividers that came with the DF binder to reinforce them. They have to last a year.
As I mentioned above, many choose to get the monthly word and weekly verse emailed to them. If you would like to register your email address to get those, simply fill the form below:
