Everyone Has a Story
You have something no one else has—your story! We all have stories, but each one is different. From birth onward we encounter a mix of people, circumstances and challenges that makes our stories unique.
So what is your story—particularly as it relates to God's work in your life? We’ve set out to harvest as many stories as possible in the belief that reading and sharing these will bring us closer to one another and closer to God!
While space doesn’t allow sharing your entire life story, there’s certainly room for the chapter on how you found God, or how God found you.
Guidelines for submitting your story
We're looking for stories based upon your true-life experience (i.e. an encounter with a physical illness, an accident, a time of rebellion or whatever) that in some way led you closer to God. All stories should be told in a first-person form of story-telling.
Keep in mind that the purpose of sharing your story is to provide encouragement to others who may be struggling with a similar experience. The ultimate purpose is to introduce readers to God for the first time, or to inspire those who already know Him to want to know Him more!
We Want to Hear From You
Written stories should be 300 - 500 words (roughly), and told in a first person format. Your story may include one or more of the following elements:
(1) A dramatic encounter (2) A spiritual awakening (3) A physical healing (4) A personal discovery
If you feel led to share your conversion story, here are some tips on how to prepare it.
