DIY Personalized Bible Verse Notebook: Want to make the Bible more personal to your life? Want your kids to memorize more Bible verses? Try this easy personalized Bible Verse Notebook.



Index Card Binder

Index Cards to fit binder

Alphabet Index Dividers to fit binder

Hole punch

Stickers or artwork for cover

Clear Packing Tape


Your index card binder will probably come with some index cards already inside. Take one of the cards and use it as a guide to hole punch your dividers.

This was the most time consuming part of making the notebook, but I just hole punched a few cards at a time in between other tasks.


Decorate the cover, if you wish. We used a simple design on an index card with my daughter’s name. You could also make a collage or use some of your child’s artwork.

Cover your design with clear packing tape. (Packing tape is not very forgiving, so you will definitely want to do this for your child.)



One way to use the notebook is to find Bible verses about particular issues your child is dealing with. Find a Bible verse about the issue and write the topic/issue on top of the card. Have your child copy the verse and write what she thinks it means in her own words. When done, file it under the appropriate letter file (A for anger, etc.).

If you have younger children, you can have them draw a picture on the card or you can draw a picture and have them color it.


You can also place a weekly Bible memorization verse in the front pocket. Once the verse is memorized it can go into a topic in the alphabetical file or in the back of the notebook in a section to review later.

You can use this for your own life, to write verses that are particularly meaningful to you and it makes a kind of spiritual history for you.

I’m so happy that you like it Anna. :)

I am in the middle of a Beth Moore Bible study, and we are encouraged to write down the verses (on index cards) that really jump out at us. This will give me a great oppurtunity to be able to keep track of all my cards! YAY!


Kimberlee March 22, 2012 at 6:13 pm

I really enjoyed the two Beth Moore studies that I have done. That’s a great idea for keeping track of the cards. :)


Trish March 22, 2012 at 7:17 pm

What am excellent idea! I will definitely use this tip, but for myself as I am working on my bible studies for the first time in far too many years.

When we do verses I print them on printer paper and fit them into a small flip photo album. That way they are protected. However, it is difficult to add verses without having ten little photo albums around the house. I like that you can just open the index card binder and add another card.


Jennifer June 13, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I found this page by googling 3×5 card holder. I had an idea in my head to do exactly this! Yay, for seeing my ideas in practice. (So often I think of an idea but it is beyond my capabilities to bring to fruitition. so i am happy when someone else has the idea and actually accomplishes it) thank you. My question is, where did you find the binders? ~ Jen


Kimberlee June 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Hi Jennifer–glad you like it. :) I found the binder at Walmart, but you could also check office supply stores if there is no Walmart nearby.


Renata July 9, 2012 at 7:12 am

Could someone tell me where can I order the Index Card Binder in A6 size?


Kimberlee July 9, 2012 at 7:18 am

I purchased mine at Walmart, but you may be able to find it at office supply stores as well.


Danielle August 2, 2012 at 2:23 pm

I love this! I was just making a list of books and binders and journals I think I might like my kids to keep and memory verses were one of them so I think this might just be perfect! Thanks for posting it!


Kimberlee August 2, 2012 at 3:00 pm
