Vacation Bible School at Shadyrest Bible Church

It’s been a busy week with my nephews over so instead of some bible journaling, I thought I’d share some pics and vids from our adventures at VBS. We’ve been having a blast exploring Egypt and hearing the story of Joseph.

Here’s a little trailer we put together with the iMovie app:

And here are some pics!

Here they are with their family leader, Valerie.

And last night my niece Norah joined us as well. They all had a little too much fun with the eyeliner…

The shopkeepers had them busy doing lots of crafts.

But I think the favorite was the Food tent….

This mummy photo op was a particularly fun spot.

And then when we got home, after a nice walk around town, we made a giant fort in the living room.

Bible Journaling – 1 Corinthians 10:31

So the next verse in our scripture memory challenge is:

1 Corinthians 10:31English Standard Version (ESV)

31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

I decided to shorten it just a little and illustrate the “eat or drink” part. Lol…  This was one of those pages that I didn’t really think about…  I didn’t even plan on doing any bible journaling after church, but it just kinda happened. The mood took over.  Actually, it was a very inspired day Sunday.  I ended up doing a lot of things that didn’t fall into the “cleaning and laundry” category.  Everything fell more into the “drink coffee, eat ice cream, and get creative” category.  I think the Pastor’s sermon kinda inspired me. He was talking about how if you stopped and just looked around at this world…. this creation…. how could you not know God exists? And again… Truth was spoken. I mean seriously… how could you not know? How could anything but an awesome creator imagine this stuff? Why are there trees and why do I care how pretty they look?

So here is a speedy process with some YouTube music. Lol.  I was sick of hearing myself talk.

 

And here is a link to Our Church’s YouTube channel! You can check out all the sermons so far here:

Bible Journaling – Acts 4:12

So we are on our third verse for the #scripturememorychallenge for our church.

Acts 4:12 ESV:

“And there is Salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

We joined forces with our friends, the Bookholdt’s, to do our memory video this past week. The verse gets explained in more detail:

Marc goes by Booky in these vids, and his son Justin is behind the camera. I can’t say I’ve ever had more fun memorizing scripture before! Lol.

So besides that vid, Eleanor and I did Bible journaling videos as well. I put mine to music and I think she’s going to narrate hers… we shall find out once I embed the vids.

So far, I’m mostly sticking to pens and lettering (poor lettering)… but I’m learning a little each time. I may branch out and put a sticker on it next time. Lol. Eleanor got a little crazy with misting, but that’s been her favorite thing for a while.

We are kinda tryin’ to get on a schedule so we hope to have a journaling vid or two every wednesday.
