Testimony

testimony
NOUN
a formal written or spoken statement, especially one given in a court of law.
Testimonies demonstrate. Testimonies prove. Testimonies encourage. The greatest testimony of all time is an ancient writing tradition calls The Gospel of John. It was written so that we, the readers, may believe that Jesus is the Christ, and that by believing we may have life (John 20:31). The testimonies of that life in Jesus continue, from the Book of Acts, to Foxe's Book of Martyrs, to A Narrative of the Lord's Dealings with George Müller, The Cross and the Switchblade, and on and on, including countless unpublished personal stories. This page is a growing collection of personal testimonies.

Always Ready To Give The Answer

My mom has an uncanny ability to make me uncomfortable. I’ve learned deep truths about the Lord and how to live with Him through her—many through moments with her that made me wish I could crawl into the ground and be far far away. Th...

The Woman on the Bus

Greyhound buses in the 1980's were a humble--no miserable--form of cross country travel. It took around 36 hours to make the 1,200 mile trip from San Luis Obispo, California to Boulder, Colorado in a stuffy bus that was really just a giant ...
