Introducing… THE DATING DIVAS MARRIAGE CLUB! A FUN and EASY way to stay intentional about your marriage!

It could very well just be the kid in me… but there is something about color coding that really grabs at me. I just enjoy it. It simplifies, it organizes, it helps me keep my head on straight. And it’s fun. Who doesn’t enjoy adding a little bit of flair and fun to the things we take too seriously?

Hands? Anyone?… I didn’t think so.

Color coding is kind of traditional for me. It started back in elementary school. I was the librarian’s assistant, ok; what do you expect? I color coded anything and everything. Notebooks, binders, pencils, folders, my school notes, and now (15 or so years later) I find that it has carried into my Bible Study. Go figure.

Why I Color Code My Bible

It’s not just that I enjoy coloring (although I really truly do).Color coding my Bible helps my Bible come to life. As I read through the chapters and take in all of the wisdom, instruction, warning, and promise; color coding allows me to take in the information in a way that my mind will digest and retain it. I can mark what areas of my life a verse may be applicable to AND REMEMBER it!

All of a sudden the verse carries 10X more meaning because I can see how it applies to me. That is how a good Bible study session is supposed to work.

So today I am going to share with you, my Bible Study Color Coding Key (as seen in my book, Simple & Sweet: Practical Tips for Women Learning to Study the Bible)!

Other Ways to Use This Color Key In Your Bible Study


What’s great about this study key is that you aren’t limited to using it just for highlighting. If you’re someone who doesn’t like to write in their Bible then you can use this key to color code your notes in your notebook.

If you want mark verses in your Bible but don’t want to use ink, you can use colored tabs or decorative tabs to mark verses instead of using a highlighter.

I am really enjoying using my Journaling Bible because it gives me the option to do both of those things. I can highlight verses or simply use colored pens to write my notes inside my Bible and use the tabs to mark the verse so easy to find when I need it.

Color Coding is a pretty versatile method of studying. It’s great because you can make it your own.

  1. That’s a great idea! I really want to get another Bible to color code. I want one that is “neat and clean” and one that I can highlight and mark. haha

    1. I am trying to do that same thing! I Reay want an amplified Bible to keep clean and a NKJV Bible to mark up. I just don’t want to spend the money right now. Maybe for my birthday.

  2. A friend turned me on to Crayola twistables. They highlight without bleeding through the thin pages of a Bible. And you get more colors than traditional highlighters.
