You see, I never used to pray for myself. I thought I was being selfish by praying for myself, so I would always pray for everyone else but never ask God for anything for me.

I was so surprised because my young child taught me much about faith – my faith – so I had to be faithful with my God.

I cannot explain to this day what happened next. Suddenly my car went out of control for no reason. I’m on the New Jersey turnpike and there’s a truck next to me, a truck behind me, a truck in front of me. I said, “Oh my God, I’m going to die.”

Why Your Faith Story Matters

You may think you don’t have a faith story. You may even feel it’s not worth telling. We believe that your faith story matters. Why?

Sharing your faith tells the story of your relationship with Jesus and how God has blessed your life. Sharing your faith blesses others with similar life experiences. Your faith story is welcome here!

Our Mission

Our mission is to help ordinary Christians become comfortable sharing personal faith stories. We believe a relationship with Jesus has blessed our lives and that Jesus calls us to reach out to the least, the last, and the lost in the world. We also wish to help guide seekers and non-Christians to a relationship with Jesus by sharing the faith stories of ordinary Christians. In addition to the resources posted on this website, we offer workshops and conference retreats for youth and adults interested in sharing their faith stories.

 

Share Your Faith Story

Empower Yourself

Most people have a vague idea of what they believe. Writing or recording your faith story helps bring clarity to your faith journey. Pat didn’t even think she had a faith story until she wrote it down.

Inspire Others

Hearing from someone with a similar story can help others overcome their own obstacles. Through faith, Matthew conquered a life of addiction and is now speaking publicly to others struggling with substance abuse.

Raise Awareness

Telling your faith story can start conversations about how the love of Jesus connects us despite our differences. Namusobya founded an orphanage in Uganda in response to the plight of street children in her town.

Shine a Light

Your faith story shines a comforting light to others who are lonely, depressed, afraid, hungry, poor, homeless, sick, or in prison. Your story, like Becky’s, can light a path for others going through difficult times.

No Story Should Remain Untold

Jesus himself asked us to share the Good News of his love for us. Your faith story, whether simple or profound, is proof of that love. Your story may touch those, like Jane, who are seeking answers about whether Jesus is real.

Writing Worksheets

Drawing and writing worksheets are provided to guide participants through a step-by-step process of writing concise personal testimonies. Let’s begin writing and sharing your faith story.
