Tightsqueeze native invents 'scripture speaking card'

Sylvia Dean Stephens-D'Angelo holds the patent she received from the U.S. government for her scripture speaking card.

Chatham, VA, October 22, 2003

A former Tightsqueeze resident has invented and patented a "scripture speaking card" aimed at spreading the Good Word.

Sylvia Dean Stephens-D'Angelo of Newport News said she invented the card because :God spoke to me and gave me the gift." "It was a time when I was asking God what my purpose was in life," said Stephens-D'Angelo.

Her vision came to her through God's voice in March 30, 2001.

Stephens-D'Angelo said God said to her on that day "Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a scripture talking card for others?"

I believe this is my purpose in life," she said. "It is still amazing to me that no one had thought of putting talking scripture into a card until now."

Right now, she said, her website is the main way she and her husband Ross D'Angelo are getting information about the card out to the public.

The card is available only as an "e-card" now. Although there are some free cards at angelexpress.com, prices for the complete line of cards range from $6.99 for a month's access to $29.99 for a year's.

The couple is looking for private investors to help them market the card in physical form.

D'Angelo adds that what the couple would like to do is attract a single "Christian Investor" who can make the card a reality. The couple aims to sell the card for $4.99.

Stephens-D'Angelo said the card could be a great way to teach little children Bible passages. The card would also be great for the elderly who have poor eyesight.
