About

002My name is Sally Sulcove.  I love being wife and mother to two children, a boy (9) and a girl (4).  I work from home; in my day job, I support the portfolio management and research efforts of an investment counseling firm.  This blog is my first major creative venture!  After reading the book Writing in the Margins by Lisa Nichols Hickman and sharing my work from the invitations listed at the end of each chapter, I am now journaling through the Bible stories I want my children to know.  My hope is to encourage and inspire others to spend time reading the Bible in new and creative ways.

How I got started…

I followed the link to a blog post with pictures of a beautiful and joyful Bible Study journal and decided to get started with my own. Then I made the mistake fortuitous decision of typing “Bible Journal” into Pinterest and discovered that there are Bibles with room for artwork and journaling.  I was hooked!  Oh Pinterest!!!

A Bit about My Faith Background…

My love and knowledge of the Bible have grown through a time-honored, old-fashioned way:  Growing up, I heard and discussed the Bible stories my Sunday school teachers taught me at Village Presbyterian Church in Prairie Village, KS, and through the years, I’ve listened to countless sermons preached by Presbyterian ministers inspired by various passages from the Bible.  I’ve read most, but not all of the Bible, and I know that there are contradictions and troubling passages; I also know that most of us who love the Bible did not fall in love with it by reading it on our own from cover to cover.  Instead, we fell in love with the Bible after falling in love with the one who inspired it.  Being part of a loving Christ-centered church family opens the Bible to the reader in a special way.  There are many Christian traditions—I believe God loves variations on a theme (just think how many different kinds of orchids there are!)—and all Christians read the Bible informed by the tradition that claims them.  What we all share in common:  Spending time in the Word is a wonderful starting point to enter into open conversation with God through prayer and meditation.
