About Seasons Illustrated

Seasons Illustrated is a Bible journaling community and resource. We are an open and accepting community of Christians of all denominations, backgrounds, and talents who journal together throughout the year. If you are interested in exploring Bible study in a creative way, regardless of artistic ability or experience, then this place is for you!

Our Mission

Seasons Illustrated features Bible journaling posts, resources, and studies. Our community journals through the year in studies or ‘seasons,’ which reflect on Biblical books, stories, or themes. Our posts and studies seek to give you the inspiration and information you need to journal in your Bible and connect with the text in a new way.

Our Studies

The Seasons Illustrated community journals together in studies. Weekly prompts are posted here on Sundays, and delivered to your inbox for those of you on the Seasons Illustrated mailing list. For those who prefer to dig deep, our downloadable eBooks provide richer detail, background, context, and commentary on the selections.

Our Story

Seasons Illustrated began as Advent Illustrated in 2015. Sara Laughed, a religion student and blogger, came up with the idea of doing a Bible journaling study for Advent. Within a day of announcing the project, 800 people had signed up to join the community. From there, Advent Illustrated became a website, a children’s book, an adult Bible journaling devotional, and the #1 Amazon best-seller in Bible study books in November of 2015. Today, our community has thousands of people from all walks of life who enjoy coming together to journal through our verses. The name Seasons Illustrated reflects our wish to journal together through liturgical seasons, seasons of the year, and seasons of life.
