Scripture Stickies, "Don't Worry" pack Review by Donna Campos

Scripture Stickies
405 El Camino Real #434
Menlo Park, CA 94025

Designed to help people memorize and meditate on the Word of God, Scripture Stickies are notepads with adhesive-backed pages featuring Bible verses. They are available in themed packs, each containing ten Stickies (two copies of five different verses). We reviewed the "Don't Worry" pack, which includes Luke 12:24-26, Matthew 6:33-34, John 14:1-4, Philippians 4:6-7, and 1 Peter 5:6-7. Scripture is available in NIV, NKJV, KJV, NASB, ESV, AMP, LBLA, and foreign language translations as well. (An extensive list is provided in the FAQ section of the company's website.)

Scripture Stickies come in a variety of themes, including Love, Peace, Hope, Joy, Follow God, Friendship, God's Protection, God Help Me Forgive, and more! They can also be customized with five verses of your choice. Kid's Study Packs are also available, including Scriptures often memorized by children, but these are designed with a single stickie for each verse rather than the duplicates. Ten different Scriptures are included in Kid's Study Packs. Many of the themes would be appropriate for homeschool use, particularly the Kid's Study Packs. Children can place them on bathroom mirrors, work centers, headboards, or anywhere else for easy reference. The company offers a Scripture of the Month club that could be well used as a homeschool Scripture memorization tool. Club members receive a new themed pack each month for six or twelve months of the year. Shipping within the United States is free, helping to keep cost down. The price is within reason for those who would rather not make Scripture memory cards themselves and is certainly reasonable when purchasing the subscription. The overall design is a bit plain, as each verse is simply black print on white paper, but this also aids in memorization without distraction.

We have really enjoyed Scripture Stickies. If you are planning to memorize a particular set of Scriptures, a customized set of stickies would help make the task much easier. The sticky factor isn't going to last forever--but with regular use, hopefully the memorization of Scripture will. The idea of using Scripture Stickies as party favors caught our attention. We plan to order some for graduation, as this is a great way to minister to others in a memorable way! For families seeking a new way to light a fire for the task of Scripture memory, Scripture Stickies is likely a perfect answer!
