 Erika Kosterlitsky  Erika has a background in student ministry and psychology and is currently working as a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern in Southern California. She has always been drawn to the therapeutic benefits of creativity and loved seeing how the various visual faith methods could use our God-given creativity to enrich our time with God. When she began Bible Journaling in 2015 she had no idea how God was going to use that tool so fully to minister to and connect with her in a season of great loss. Her Bible became a record of God's faithfulness, and she encourages everyone to create visual reminders of how God is showing up in their lives, even if it's as simple as writing a note in the margins of your Bible. Contact Erika at:  Erika.k629@gmail.com

  Koryn Hutchinson   Artist. Creator. Encourager, mentor and friend. I love to capture visual pictures of life as it unfolds in front of me, from newborn babies to God's creatures on land and in the air. Spending time with my Creator and Savior has opened my eyes to characteristics of His divine power and love and how so much of what my eyes can see is laid out in His inspired scriptures. I have enjoyed leading the Margin Madness Ministry at Burke Community Church with fellow leaders. Bible journaling is a new creative adventure for us to explore.  I currently own and operate my photography studio from home in Woodbridge, Virginia. My husband and I have 4 grown children, 4 in-loves, and one grandchild on the way.  thetaffybox@comcast.net

Chelsea Wojcik

Chelsea was first introduced to Bible Journaling in 2016 at a Mothers of Preschoolers "MOPS" meeting. The practice excited her and she immediately felt drawn to this method of meditating in the Word of God. Being a mother of three, she soon realized that her children would have to be involved in the process. And thus, her book, Bible Journaling with Kids was born!
In addition to writing books, she enjoys working with others as a Visual Faith Coach. She makes herself available to share and teach others through seminars, workshops, and other events. Chelsea clearly has a passion for helping families put Christ at the center of their lives.

 Michele Bowden  Left-handed, right brained, lover of God’s people with a bent towards zeal.  God speaks to us in a variety of ways but I first met Him when I encountered Him in creation.  The heavens declare His glory (Psalm 19:1) among mountains, valleys, lakes, and beaches….God is calling His children to listen.  Truthfully, I listen best when I am drawing, painting and doodling.  So, Bible journaling was an explosion of my love for His Word colliding with my creative side.  I hadn’t encountered Him more intimately than I did in the margin of my pages. As the Women’s Ministry Director of Burke Community Church, I knew this would be a way to connect women with God’s Word in a unique, engaging and fresh format.  Thrilled with the results, we desire to bring more women with us on this visual faith journey.   tmb61398@yahoo.com
