Katy’s Blog - Winning the Victory

I stared at the painting and tried to memorize every detail. Dark gray brush strokes created ominous clouds and morphed into blue and white patches. An eagle with its wings outstretched in a “v” shape descended out of storm clouds into the bright light of day.

The Scrapbooked Bible Study
Bible studies don’t have to be dry and boring—they can be “scrapbooked”! Scrapbooking a photograph is all about visual appeal using background papers, journal entries, and embellishments. You can also add bling—anything that sparkles or shines. We love bling. Bible studies can be scrapbooked for greater reader appeal, using such “background papers” as the context of the message or the customs of the times. The “journal entries” are application for today and discussion questions. “Embellishments” such as stories or a fresh approach to the subject create interest; and comparisons, examples, and definitions build understanding. Spiritual insight is the bling. So the brand of Lighthouse Bible Studies is, “The Scrapbooked Bible Study.”
