  2. I am starting to study the Bible and I had trouble figuring out a color coding system. Your video has truly been the answer to my prayers. Your detailed explanation is so helpful. Thank you!

  3. What a cool system. I use whatever color I have handy to mark a scripture. My sister-in-law told me that she uses a single color for an entire year and then switches. That way, she sees what touched her heart at different times in her life.

  4. Hi…. Your printable is so beautiful!!! I love the idea… however I use the micron pack of pens to underline and take notes with these colors: red, orange, pink, yellow, green, blue, brown, black… each color with it's own meaning (I only highlight if I want something to really stand out.)… I would love to know what program you used to design your card. It's really beautiful but I'd love to make one that includes all the colors. Unsure how to go about it. Thank you for any advice you can give!

  5. Hello! Great video! I just got a new Bible for the first time in a long while and was wanting some ideas for how to highlight. So I watched and I loved the idea of boxing a word and circling a word, the * symbol and ? Symbol.
    My one thing I am adding to my list is a ! Symbol. This can be added beside the ? When that question has been solved. Whether by a revelation, a sermon you heard or God speaking. And if need be, add a date if you journal your bible study times so you can look at the date you finally got the verse and see what you wrote, or just add it into the bible if you have space.
