Kara Heckel Bio

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 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.




Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.

Isaiah 43:1
