RJD #18 - Doodly Doo



Today my entry for the RANDOM JOURNAL DAY Link-up will consist of some doodles in a beautiful journal that was created just for me by a very good friend....

Isn't it fun and inspiring? Thank you Mandy!

This journal was my first journal without LINES! I love lines and order, but this was a great step into creativity for me because it had every other page without lines. The lack of lines sparked a fun DOODLING habit that really added to my journaling experience.

I filled this journal during one of my 10 years as a ministry school overseer, listening to great teachers and speakers 4 days a week

 It was a beautiful season of my life that I would not trade for anything. These little ink scribbles take me back to those rooms full of happy and spiritually hungry people from all over the world.

This was probably done during one of the few days I did not want to be there or the speaker was boring, Ha! Yes Students, I had those days too! Ha!

  1. Wow, how brave to step into the world of no lines. And how easily you transitioned into really beautiful doodles. And I know exactly what you mean about boring teachers, though my doodles from such teachings usually were simply words I heard, not pieces of art.

    1. To BE CLEAR: Only the dark circle doodle was a boring time most likely. I could tell because it was so deeply imprinted, I may even have been a bit upset and disagreeing with the guest speaker I'm thinking. Otherwise I totally loved our time in the ministry school all 10 years!

  4. I am glad to see that other people doodle when listening to preachers and teachers. I don't think I saved any of my doodles however. Maybe I should have. I love yours! There is a lot of depth in each one!

    1. Probably helps you concentrate, right? I don't see anything in mine, just doodles.

  5. This reminds me of my notebooks that I bring to our teachings - lots of doodles. I am a visual learner and I can't listen without my hands moving and drawing things! Makes it easier to review what was taught. Patsy from

    1. Thanks for coming by Patsy! It used to bug me to see our students scribbling drawings during our teaching times, until I learned about visual learners and how it is easier to absorb and recall the teaching if the hands are busy.
