The Story of Paper Sunday


Did you know God loves you so much that He knows you by name? He knows the number of hairs on your head and His thoughts for you outnumber the grains of sand.


As a believer, I thought I understood those things. Then, one day, a friend gave me a bible verse personalized with my name: Kara, listen to me…I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you Isaiah 46:3-4. That simple slip of paper literally changed the way I related to Christ. In that moment, my heart was awakened to the depth of God’s love for me. It was then that I realized how personal God is! Out of that singular moment (over 10 years ago) grew the idea for Paper Sunday. I wanted others to experience God in that same deeply personal and intimate way.


God is real. He is real big, real awesome and real personal; which is why every single one of our journals is personalized with your name in scripture. Whether you journal or not, our pages can be used as daily reminders of God’s love for you. I sometimes use mine as a ‘To Do’ list, grocery list, or to jot down prayer needs for myself and others. And every time I open it, there is a verse with my name reminding me of how much God cares for me. It is the best GO TO gift for anyone you want to share God’s love with.

Our heart is simply this; as you journey through the pages of your Paper Sunday personalized scripture journal, we hope you would have a new revelation of just how personal He is.

♥ He sees you.

♥ He cares about the details of your life.

♥ He knows you by name.


Whether you are in a season of great joy or struggling through your darkest hour, there is one constant: the love of God. My prayer is that your personalized scripture journal would encourage, inspire, teach, and fill you with hope as you are drawn to His word and drawn to Him in a deeply personal way.


May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is for you. Ephesians 3:18

Are you a “for real” company?? I have called and emailed and gotten zero response regarding a journal I purchased on 12/5/19 for my daughter for Christmas that never came. Could someone please email me or call or text me to let me know if the journal will ever be sent…… or is this just a sham…. and I’ve been duped by a fake company!!??? :-(

I love your products. I purchased 18 journals for the senior girls at our school, as a gift from the junior girls. The students loved them! In addition, I’ve read some very cruel and judgmental comments on your FB page and I just want to encourage you. Personalizing scripture is cool, and relational, and meaningful. It isn’t changing scripture at all. I am so sorry there are some wacky radicals out there who seem to have nothing better to do than to try to ruin your good name and business by condemning you and all of your customers. Carry on with doing good works, making scripture personal and making it come alive! There is nothing more sacred than the Word, and I’m grateful to have found your company, and plan to purchase again and again these unique and meaningful gifts.
Many blessings! Beth

My journal was a surprise gift from my thoughtful husband. I have been a Christian for more then forty years, as I was turning the pages of my new t journal and reading the scriptures with my name.His word became more personal and this wonderful warm feeling came over me. I love this journal.

I had never heard of you until I received my first personalized journal today in the mail from a beloved Aunt. I squealed! It’s precious and I will definitely be ordering some to give as gifts to my daughters and friends💖

Love, love, love!

I purchased this for me, mom, god mother, mother-in-law & god mother-in-law, and we all love it! No better way to engage in the Word than to have the Word speaking directly to you. This takes journaling to a new level! Thanks Paper Sunday!


I bought 18 journals for Christmas gifts for family and friends and 1 journal for myself and 1 calendar for myself (one for you... two for me 😂). The people I gave them to LOVED them. They are so unique. They are well made and high quality and the print examples don’t do justice to how pretty they are in person. I will be ordering more next year for sure.

He Knows My Name!🙌🏻

This was a gift given to me. What a special gift! To see MY NAME in scripture! I want to memorize scripture this year and what a beautiful way to do so! I immediately went on line and ordered for my friends too. Thank you for making it so personal, that is what it should be ... Personal! ❤️


All four of the journals were gifts. And all four of the ladies loved them! I am praying they will be a blessing to them all year long


We gave this journal as a gift to our international student staying with us. Seeing her name inserted into scripture has touched her heart and helped her understand how personally His word applies to each believers life. This is a great way to see God’s word living and active and touching lives. Thank you for your gift of ministry through your business.
