About this Session

Hi, everyone!

I am so glad you are joining me for the Putting on Perikephalaia Session during this 2023 Bible Journaling Ministries Armor of God Conference! It will be a journal-along-with-me type session with the session printables (in different sizes) available for you to trace (You can download these on the session page!).

The devotional content will focus on the practice of putting on the helmet (perikephalaia) of salvation to protect and defend our thought lives. I will break down the Greek word for helmet into its parts (peri and kephale) to show how much depth there is in this simple piece of armor.

As we “work out our salvation” (Philippians 2:12) in daily life, we have to “take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Corinthians 10: 5). This is one of my life verses and something that I am passionate about because I believe that the words we speak, actions we take, and attitudes we exhibit all flow from how we deal with the thoughts that pop into our heads. The session will be appropriate for everyone from beginners through very experienced journalers. We are going to have a great time diving into God’s Word together!

For those of you who like to prepare ahead, here are the supplies I will be using in my session:

-Dayspring Illustrating Bible (You can use any journaling Bible, journal, or just sheet of paper!)

-A pencil to trace the image

-Something to color with! I will be using watercolors, brushes, and water (I always have paper towels available too for when I make a mistake or spill something) - You can use whatever you want to color with, though!

-A black pen or marker for outlining (Mine is a Faber Castell PITT artist pen with India ink that does not react wiith water, so I can outline before watercoloring.)


-Page prep with Matte Gel Medium or Clear Gesso - This is completely optional - I did NOT page prep this time, but I usually do.  We are working in 2 Corinthians 10:5 if you want to prep your page ahead of time. Simply spread a thin layer of either matte gel medium or clear gesso on the page and let dry or dry with a heat gun…which brings me to…

-Heat gun or hair dryer for speeding up the prepping or paint drying process

-Washi tape to secure the Bible page to the session printable while tracing

-I will embellish at the end with metallic watercolors from the Kuretaki Starry Collection.

That’s about it! Everyone is welcome! I can’t wait to chat with you in the Facebook group and during the session! Praying God blesses you through this conference and beyond!
