    I bought Journibles Psalm 119 for our family stockings at Christmas and I found I loved writing out Scripture longhand! Somehow it helps me see things differently than just reading. In fact, once I finished with that little book, I bought some blank notebooks and started writing out Scripture on a regular basis.

    I always enjoy your “News You Can Use” feature. Thank you.

    Regarding the writing of Scripture in longhand, I love to do that as a part of my time alone with God. Moleskine notebooks also work well for that purpose.

    Because of Christ,

    I took a little longer to write out the entire Bible – 12 years, from 1983-1995. In Deuteronomy 17:18-20, God commands every king of Israel to do just that – and accompanies it with five amazing promises. I would love to see every person own at least one book of the Bible in his or her own handwriting. To that end, in 2003 I created the Signature Bible http://seedbucket.com). Be warned, however! Once you begin, you may not be able to stop with writing out just one book. It’s God-drenched impact is life-transforming.
