At the end of August, I woke up to a text from Jenna of Blessed is She asking if I thought it at all possible to design the entire Bible in a month. I remember thinking “I don’t know if I can, but I will make it happen.”
We got contracts signed and a game plan in place and then I got news that my grandfather was declining quickly and I needed to get home to say my goodbyes. The Bible was going to require some work that I hadn’t anticipated (ie adjusting every single footnote and endnote on every single page).
The rest is quite a blur. My grandfather passed away. I went home twice. I grieved and I drew and I knew this project was the biggest I’d ever been given.
And the result blows my mind and my heart. How my hands were chosen for this task. How quickly I had to work, which was a blessing so that I couldn’t get in my own way. It was all divinely cared for and I was just the vessel.
You can purchase the Bible on Blessed is She. I’ve been getting a lot of messages about what pens to use in the Bible. The pages are slightly thinner than we hoped, but luckily they won’t bleed. Here are some good options:
My hope is that this is a Bible that can be passed down from generation to generation. Where all your notes and experience can be given to your daughters and your daughters’ daughters.
