I’m not a huge fan of DIY projects—mainly because I’m not very crafty—but I am a fan of putting together really easy things that can affect my life and this journal has done just that. I like to call it my “Pray the word” journal but ultimately it’s a Bible reference tool that I use to speak God’s word over my life.
