5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas! Excellent layout and instructions.

Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2020

"Very pleased with the product. I was quite excited to see all the wonderful designs, colors, and ideas. I am not one to journal in my Bible, I always thought it makes a Bible look too messy (but I'm seeing it now as such a nice concept that I may try with some light touch designs). I actually bought the book for ideas for my prayer journals and devotionals. I am not disappointed at all. The guides, the instructions and ideas are well laid out and for someone like me who loves doodling or someone who is stuck for ideas, this will definitely help. The personal stories are great too. I highly recommend this book."

"These pens and highlighters are terrific! No bleed-through on the pages of my Bible, which is super important to me. The ink in the colored pens is dark enough to be easily read yet it doesn't overpower the printed words.

The highlighters are surprisingly smooth. There absolutely no drag when used. The darkest color is blue, but it doesn't obscure the print. A great purchase!"
