Week 1 – Psalms

Stepping into the Psalms…

I want to share a couple of great Bible study resources to use with the study of Psalms but they can be used with any Bible study.

The Bible Project

The first resource is The Bible Project website. I love what the Bible Project is doing and how they are reaching an entire generation with their creative videos on the Bible. Check out their webpage. The Bible Project

The video overview of Psalms provides background and it is the perfect way to begin our summer study. It is a little over 8 minutes, and it is awesome!

Check out the video introduction/overview to Psalms by The Bible Project-Psalms.

ESV Scripture Journals

The next is a Scripture resource. I want to share a really cool way to read, study, and mark your Scripture. I always provide a printable copy of whatever Scripture we study in our F.A.T. Girls Bible study group because I believe in marking Scripture. However, I did not do that for this summer study.

BUT… I have found these ESV Scripture Journals, and they are marvelous! Really marvelous!!! I love that they are the ESV translation as well… my translation of choice (personal opinion…not everyone’s). These journals are for individual books of the Bible.

I have one for Romans (at the suggestion of my pastor) that many in my church are using as he preaches through the book this year. My copy is the ESV Illuminated Scripture Journal which has a very pretty cover, but that seems to be the only difference between the ESV Illuminated Journal and the ESV Scripture Journal. My sweet friend, Jen gave me a copy of the ESV Illuminated Scripture Journal for the book of Galatians as well.

Honey, now I am totally smitten with these Scripture journals.

So I ordered one for Psalms through Amazon. Bear in mind, the print is smaller for Bible study, but it’s so much easier than carrying around a big old notebook when I am working on a study. BTW… this journal for Psalms is THICK- a little over an inch thick. The Illuminated version (with a pretty cover) does not come out until the end of September… heavy sigh.

I love that the pages of these Scripture journals have wide margins and there is a blank page for note taking and journalling across from each printed page. The paper for these pages is thick and takes the ink of my Flair pens well.

For those of you who enjoy illustrating or creative journalling, these ESV Scripture Journals would be good to illustrate as well… appealing to your creative, artistic side in Bible study… if you are so inclined to respond to God’s Word in that way… ♥️✏️📖

Joining the study…

This first week we are reading and working through Psalms 1 – 14. If you would like to join our Facebook Group – F.A.T. Girls Online Study – it’s not too late to summer through the Psalms with us!
