Basket of Devotionals & Evernote

Basket of Devotionals & Evernote #devotions #devotional #notes #evernote #biblestudy #biblejournaling #biblejournallove I shared on the Facebook Group my friend Dolores’ basket of devotionals. Dolores writes her thoughts in the margins of her devotionals every morning and dates them resulting a diary of her spiritual growth. What a super idea! I love it. At the bottom of this post is a list of the devotionals in her basket.

Its so neat to read the dated notes.

Every morning Dolores sits down with her basket of devotions, to spend time with her heavenly Father. After reading her daily devotion, She writes, documenting what she is learning about God, and words of affection for His character and His compassion. She can also look back at insights and significant turning points in her spiritual growth and development. (Her favs are marked not with sticky notes but stars). I have LOVED looking though them.

(BTW, the proofreading marks are because Dolores is a copy editor. Most Bibles do not capitalize pronouns for God (I do) but Dolores feels it distracts from the message.)

My Electronic Basket (Digital Alternative)

At this time I am living with Dolores. She is my caregiver as I am dealing with a disabling herniated disk. The disk problem causes numbness in my right arm and hand so my writing is very limited. My basket alternative is to keep my notes in Evernote. Evernote is a free organizational program that consists of virtual notebooks. I set ups a notebook titled “Devotionals” I add a “digital note” to the devotional notebook with the same title as the devotional then jot down bullet list I want to remember. I try to include the Bible references so I can look them up later when studying the same Passages.   Basket of Devotionals & Evernote #devotions #devotional #notes #evernote #biblestudy #biblejournaling #biblejournallove There are several benefits to saving notes in Evernote:

  • Evernote can sync your documents with your tablet, smartphone or every otherdevice that has an internet connection. You can even read your notes while waiting at dr office, etc. on Evernote phone app.
  • You can change the text (blog, size and color).

Devotional List

Several people asked me to list what is in Dolores’ basket. The list below includes her basket contents AND my favorites devotionals (most on Kindle or Logos). With affiliate links. Note from Dolores: My first devotional was Streams in the Desert, where I found the names of various Christian writers, and I bought their books to learn more from them. I found that I did not always agree with all of their teachings, but even that helped me to clarify my own understanding and beliefs about Christianity.
