After struggling with her own mental health, one Kentucky high schooler decided to help herself and her classmates turn to the Lord in trying times—one sticky note at a time.
“Our school, along with the middle school, has struggled with suicide,” Sophy Jones told WKYT-TV, referring to her school, Whitley County High. “And, a lot of people struggle with their mental health.”
After seeing a popular trend on TikTok, the teenager decided to start prayer walls in her high school. The walls, she said, were created to “help spread God’s Word” to those who need encouragement.
Many of the Bible verses scrawled on sticky notes lining the girls’ bathroom walls are passages that made a huge difference in Jones’ own life.
“God saved me,” the faith-filled student told the local news outlet.
“People can just write down a Bible verse or, like, ‘Jesus loves you,’ for example, and you can either take it with you if you want to keep it as a note; you can repost other ones,” she said of her vision for the prayer wall. “They could take that verse and say they want to read it, or we do have Chromebooks at school, so they can Google the verse.”
She started the ministry of sorts late last year, and it’s already having a positive impact.
