This week I’m reviewing a brand new Bible journal called “The Scribe Bible Journal“. I really liked it and if you’d like to check it out or maybe buy one for yourself, you can do that HERE.
I’m going to keep my blog post introduction for this short as I’m experiencing some technical difficulty. The touchpad on my laptop has decided to freeze up and I had to dig around in my desk drawers and find an old mouse to plug into till I can figure out the problem and it’s really awkward. I’ve tried a few suggestions I dug up in a Google search,but every time I reboot the laptop, it’s fine for about five minutes then the cursor freezes up again.
So, the information I want to share with you is in the video below anyway, so I submit that for your information (and hopefully blessing) here —>
Here is a selection of pages you can get a better view of, if you’d like. Just click on the image and it will open up as a bigger page:
What is a “War Binder”? That question gets asked probably every day (often more than once) in our “Christian Planner, Journal, and Craft Fellowship” group on Facebook. I decided I would creating a page on my blog to help answer that question! We can just direct them to this page and they can find out here and also get some resources for starting their own war binder.
First things first, ok:
What IS a war binder??
A war binder is a take-off from the movie, War Room. You can watch a trailer for the movie here:
So in this movie, Miss Clara has a big house and in her house she has a big closet she has emptied all but a chair. She calls this her, “war room”. Why “war room”? Miss Clara is a devoted Christian who spends a lot of time in this room waging spiritual war in prayer. She tapes prayer requests, pictures, etc. on the walls of her little room and she is there with her chair, her Bible and her taped-up requests. It’s just a tiny little room, but the realms of the heaven know it quite well. Miss Clara regularly wages war with the Holy Spirit encompassing her, the Word of God as her weapon and the blood of Jesus as her covering.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” –Ephesians 6:12
“For though we live in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh. The weapons of our warfareare not the weapons of the world. Instead, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We tear down arguments, and every presumption set up against the knowledge of God; and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.…” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph. 6:11-17
A War Binder is a “war room” in a binder for those of us without an extra room to convert into a war “room”.
It’s a notebook, binder, traveler’s notebook, journal; what have you that you keep prayer requests in. You can have a section for prayer requests, answered prayers, devotion and sermon notes, Bible study notes, gratitude, reflections on what you’ve studied, worship lyrics, scripture writing, ANYTHING that draws you close to the Lord and which you use to wage your own spiritual war in.
A war binder is a very personal thing you share between yourself and God. Make it as you are inspired. the bottom line is it draws you close to the Lord in prayer and let His Word guide you in your daily walk through what inspires you to enter into it.
Here is a clip from my first war binder. (First only because I was a bit too ambitious and made it too big to turn the pages easily 🙂 ) But I’m using the same concept on a bit smaller scale now. I hope it will give you some ideas:
Use your own ideas! Let the Holy Spirit lead you 🙂 He is faithful!

I’ve been telling my Facebook group that I would make a flip-through video of the new “Creative You” planner/journaling products available at Walmart. I finally did the video today!
The price on this line is great! Each sticker pack I reviewed in the video below was less than $3. (I think the stamp set was around the same price, but don’t remember for sure).
Please overlook my lightly issue in this video. The best lighting in our house is in the kitchen by the sliding glass door and my husband and son were home, so not the best time to shoot a video in the kitchen. I did this in my craft room with the normal lighting and an Ott-Lite that’s great for working on crafts and sewing up close, but not so great for shooting videos 🙂
If you want to see just a close-up of the stickers and stamps with less chat, fast forward to the 19:25 mark.
Also, please give me a thumbs up and consider subscribing to my channel. I’m pretty new to my own channel on YouTube and am improving all the time. Enjoy! —>
Hi everyone! Well it looks like we all survived the eclipse; and as far as I know, we are all still here 🙂
It’s been a while since I shared a printable, so today I am sharing for us all, my newly created Proverbs 31 Woman Monthly Tracker for our bullet journals (or regular journals or planners). It’s sized to fit an A5-journal (8″ x 5.5″). I will share the pdf, then under that will be a short tutorial for how I’m planning to use mine. So let’s get right to it 🙂
This is an update from my weekly tracker and last-minute attempt to turn that one into a monthly. You can get the weekly from that post here.

Some of you know I’ve been working at trying to find planner peace 🙂 I love my Happy Planner and still use it, but honestly, I’ve been neglecting it of late due to my new passion for Bullet Journaling. I’m trying to figure out a method to use them both, but that’s a topic for another day.
I’ll get in to my own bullet journaling in another post soon to come, but today I have a free printable for those of you who have caught the bullet journal fever like me 🙂
There are lots of wheels and trackers of all sorts out there and I’ve seen something similar to that with the Fruits of the Spirit that are a type of Level 10 journaling.
Today I started thinking how much I try to emphasize the Proverbs 31 Woman for Christian women and it dawned on me that it would make a great tracker. So I opened my graphics program and designed one that we can just print on printer paper and stick on a page of our bullet journals to save from drawing it out every week or month (depending on your preference – I have both on the PDF below). Just shade or color in the square that goes along with your week. I plan to use it to find a balance with my life efforts and then to look back on to see my progress (or need for more) 🙂

UPDATED 8/21/17: Better version of the monthly tracker for this can be found HERE
On the pdf is also a description of the attributes of the Proverbs 31 woman and verses that describe them.
