Free First Love Devotion + Bible Journaling Printables

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  It's been a while, hasn't it?  I have been super busy this new year, and I haven't been blogging near as much as I was before the holidays.  Today I'm interrupting my unplanned hiatus to share an awesome freebie with you!  Y'all know that I love Bible journaling and collaborating with Christian author Jennifer Hayes Yates, right?  Well, she and I have teamed up again to share a free devotion and Bible journaling printable with y'all perfect for February--the LOVE month!

When Jennifer and I talked about teaming up again, we both loved the idea of this month's devotion centering around love.  As usual, Jennifer did a great job writing her devotion, and she gave it the perfect title: "First Love."  When I read what she wrote, I had so many ideas swirling around in my head.  I tried to cram as many of them on this month's printable Bible journaling goodies as I could.

Free Printable Christmas Devotion + Bible Journaling Goodies

Hey, y'all!  I am so excited about the holiday season.  It's my favorite time of year!  I love sooo many things about it.  But you know what?  As magical as this time of year is, it's often very busy.  So busy that I sometimes feel exhausted by the time Christmas rolls around.  That feeling inspired me to write a devotion entitled "Rest in Him," and, of course, I created some printable journaling goodies to go along with it.  I'm sharing all this goodness with you today!

 Can I be honest with y'all for a second?  I'm a little nervous about sharing this devotion with you.  You see, I don't really consider myself a "writer."  Yes, I'm an English teacher, and, yes, I write project tutorials all the time, but this type of writing is different.

Hey, y'all!  Are you starting to get into the holiday spirit yet?  I can't wait for Thanksgiving, but I'm most excited for Christmas!  I went to the Southern Christmas Show this weekend, and I have been listening to Christmas music, and, yes, I've even watched a Christmas movie already.  I adore Christmas movies, and one of my favorites is Elf.  Last week, I watched Elf, and while watching it, I hand-lettered the four main elf food groups.  Why?  So I could make a cool Elf-Inspired t-shirt with some festive heat transfer vinyl sent to me by Expressions Vinyl!  And as usual, I'm sharing the free cut file with you so that you can make your own.  As if that wasn't enough awesomeness for one post, I'm also teaming up with the oh-so-talented Alexis of Persia Lou and twenty one other fabulous bloggers to share some really awesome vinyl posts with you in anticipation of Alexis's brand new vinyl course that she's created for Craftsy.  AND--that's right, I'm not done yet--there is a FABULOUS giveaway at the end of the post!
