Hey friends! Welcome to the first of our Best of 2023 series! For the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing our favorite books, kids resources, faith resources, and planning resources!
Today we’re sharing our favorite FAITH RESOURCES from 2023! From Bible study resources, to our favorite pens, to Bibles and notebooks – we’ve got our top 10 faith-related items collected for you!
Ready? Let’s dive in!
I’m not gonna lie, I saw this Bible floating around and I was annoyed that we women have to have a separate study Bible from the men. DO WE NOT NEED ALL THE SAME NOTES, TOO?! But I had to eat my thoughts there, because I received this Bible and it’s truly beautiful AND packed full of helpful study notes. It’s actually the perfect amount of study notes for a peaceful morning quiet time – enough to give me some context, history, and extra info without being overwhelming or distracting. I ended up loving it and this is the Bible I use every single day now. It’s my favorite.
Speaking of my Bible, I am thoroughly obsessed with my Bible COVER. I now have two of these hand-sewn Bible covers from _____ on Etsy, and I love them SO MUCH. They are really high quality, come with additional ribbon bookmarks (that we all KNOW we need!!!), and you get to pick your pattern and leather. I can easily see these being heirlooms, and I will always, always order from this little mom-owned shop! (I got the pen pouch too and it’s PERFECT for my 5 highlighter system!)
Move over Moleskine, these Paperage notebooks now have my whole heart. They are the same high quality as Moleskine notebooks, and the same college ruled lines, but slightly wider, and WAY cheaper. I can get three – in gorgeous colors!! – for the price of one Moleskine. I have been using one as my bullet journal (a companion to my S.O.S. Planner), and one as my quiet time journal. I add a sticker from Sola Gratia or Her Hearts Homeschool on the front, and it’s perfectly simple and beautiful! Plus, my pen fits in the band across the top, which is seriously just the best.
Simple Bible studies are my saving grace right now. I’m in a season where decision fatigue is a real struggle, and I need to make the process of STARTING my quiet time as simple as possible. Enter these simple Bible studies. I’ve been using a mix of our own Anchored Women Bible Studies as well as a few of the Daily Grace Co. studies, alternating as I finish each one. I love that these are fully Scripture-based, and keep me in the word without a whole lot of fluff or overthinking. Yes, please.
These shirts are pretty much my daily uniform these days. I throw on a comfy pair of jeans and a shirt that shares the gospel in some way, and I’m ready to go! They are the perfect SOFT tee, and I just love the wording and designs. I think I have at least 15 of them. Enough for two weeks solid. 🤣
I love color-coding and highlighting in my Bible, but I hate it when the color bleeds through. These gel highlighters have almost a crayon-like texture and completely eliminate that problem!
These simple journals come in many different colors and themes and provide a place for you to write a verse for the day along with your thoughts. I am working my way through the Psalms collection, but I have also purchased two of the Choose Your Own Scripture Journals in hopes of writing my way through an entire book of the Bible!
These tabs are sturdy, beautiful, and easy to apply. I have used them in my mine and my daughter’s Bibles and they continue to hold up!
Solid historically and theologically, Christ-centered throughout, this guide is a great resource for understanding the cultural and historical context of the Bible
These individual notebooks contain the entire text of one book of the Bible interleaved with blank pages for in-depth study. I love using these when I am doing a deep dive into a particular book, highlighting and taking more robust notes than would fit in the margins of my every-day Bible!
