Clean House Clean Heart
The Personal Testimony of Dwight Smith
Dwight Smith was four years old when Jesus saved him. He had a good family, went to a Bible-preaching church, and had heard the Gospel again and again. One day, while cleaning the house with his Mom, he began to ask several “little kid” questions about eternity. His mother answered them plainly from the Bible, and on that day, he decided to believe on the Lord Jesus as his Savior. This child-like faith is what is essential for anyone to come to Jesus and be saved.
Out of the Darkness of Death
The True Life Story of Finley Cutshaw
We had our guns out and were cleaning them at my friend Mark’s house. We were really looking forward to hunting the next day. Everything was fine until Mark started pointing his gun around the room at different objects. Then he pointed it at me. “Whoa, Dude! Turn that gun away,” I said. “That’s dangerous, very dangerous! You’re never supposed to point a gun at anyone!” “It’s no big deal,” Mark replied. “See, it’s not loaded.” Then he pointed the gun right at me and pulled the trigger. “Click.” “See, there is nothing to worry about.” When he pulled the action back on the gun to show there was nothing in it, a loaded bullet fell out! A round was in the gun, but when he pulled the trigger, it did not fire! I was 15 years old and had just come face to face with the reality of death.
She Received Two Heart Transplants, One Changed Her Forever
The Life Story of Tonya Love
They came by the hundreds to say good-bye to a girl who, in a short time, had made a life changing impact on their lives. “Tonya brings to us a message that everyone wants to hear; a message of enjoying each day to its fullest as a gift,” said one newspaper article. “She was mature beyond her years and yet had not lost the girlish ability to love, trust, and be awed by life’s wonders” was a hospital worker’s comment. “Courage seems an understatement – faith-filled doesn’t cover all that she carried in her spirit. Gracious in giving…, all the adjectives fail in the brilliant light of a young woman whose surname spoke volumes about her,” wrote a Philadelphia television personality. The media was sent to record this event; among them some of Tonya’s new found friends who came to say good-bye to this teenager who had touched their lives. What caused this eighteen year old “preacher’s kid” to make such a profound impact?
A Broken Marriage Transformed
The Life Story of Phil and Lee Voss
My husband and I had been married for nearly six years and had two beautiful little girls. From the outside looking in, everything looked great, but our marriage was anything but great. We had no communication and were dangerously close to divorce! We were attending a Methodist church where my husband was a Sunday School teacher. We had even gone to marriage counseling, but nothing we did seemed to help.
Because Phil and I hardly communicated, our relationship was a mess. I would leave him with the kids and then come back home. He never asked where I was going or where I had been. I was making a series of bad choices that I knew were wrong. My sinful decisions continued in spite of the warnings of my conscience and the Holy Spirit. The daily conflict I was facing was nearly more than I could handle.
From Bahia to the Bible
The Personal Testimony of Karen Ellis Clarke

Through God’s amazing grace, the loving witness of a former Bahai member, and her own study of God’s Word, Karen placed her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ!
The Story of Kris Casey
For as long as I can remember, I’ve asked questions. Lots of them. I’m sure this frustrated my teachers and others. My mom, however, always took the time to explain each question with as much patience as she could muster, until my boyish-heart was satisfied with the answer. How I wished on this particular night I could go back to that child-like innocence. I was legally an adult now. Gone were the days that mom and dad could fix any problem of mine with a piece of candy and a hug.
