Truth Scrap

Last week, I sent out an email to my newsletter subscribers sharing some of my holiday wish list items. One of those things was an art journaling bible. I’m amazed at what Shanna Noel and Stephanie Ackerman are doing to document their faith through creative outlets and I cannot wait to give it a try.

So, when I found out about Lain Ehmann’s newest event, Truth Scrap, featuring BOTH Shanna and Stephanie, I had to share about it too! This online event will be held on 1/31/15 and looks amazing!
