A BALD, BUFF GUY SAVED MY LIFE AND I DOUBT HE KNOWS IT by Anonymous

Image
I’ve never been into sports. In school, I didn’t want to play sports, and I also didn’t want to waste my time watching it. So, it was funny when, at the ripe age of twenty-two, I joined a karate club. My sensei, who is only two years older than me, is a buff, bald guy. (Male senseis have a way of having little to no hair—or is that a South African thing?) I actually started at the dojo to just do self-defence classes for three months. Lo-and-behold, a few months later he asked if I wanted to try out the karate class and I just kept going at it. I started going through the belts and doing competitions and it turned out that I was pretty good at it. Except for being kicked in the face a few times, and the bruises that come with a full-contact sport, I really enjoyed it. In 2016, when I had just been doing karate for about a year and a half, I was going through a terrible time in my life. Many of my friends were moving away. There were disappointments in my wor

REDEMPTION EXPERIENCE by Pauline

Image
God's saving grace and mercy should be celebrated by anyone who is alive and is in his will. Back in 2008, I was finding it difficult to secure an admission into the university. I had tried the previous year and the year before. I had fantasies about the schools I would love to attend. In 2008, I got admitted into one of those schools I wanted. To run a short pre-university program. As at the time, I remember praying to God to help me get into the main undergraduate program. I made a vow to be chaste and not get involved in anything sexual relations with anyone and God granted my heart desire. When I got in, my commitment to God dropped. I kept a friend who didn't have a relationship with God. I felt that since I got what I wanted, I could now keep a relationship. I stopped praying and going to church regularly. I indulged in sexual immorality and partied with my friends. As a result of my distance from God, I felt an emptiness in my soul. God had to separate me from my friend

WHY I NEVER WORE MY WEDDING DRESS by Natalie Jenkins

Image
  Three years ago, I was the happiest I’ve ever been. I had just graduated college, I had a decent job and the absolute highlight was being engaged to my FiancĂ©, Jason. We had been together for a little over a year and he popped the question at my family Christmas party dressed as Santa Clause.  I was so excited. The day I had waited my whole life for was finally within sight. I was finally getting married. It felt surreal. It’s honestly hard to put into words how happy I felt during that time. We had two dogs, and a house that we were remodeling. The two of us always joked that we’d never paint anything again, though there we were, painting rooms again. A couple days after Jason proposed to me, we had taken my ring back to the jewelry store to get it resized. It was beautiful and being separated from it was hard. I was counting down the days until I was able to get it back.  Two weeks later, I went and picked out my wedding dress. All of my family went and all of Jason’s family was th

Bebita Ndongo Macias, also known by her pen name I.W.Fredd, is an actress, author, cosplayer, dancer, model, pageant girl, singer and songwriter from La Republica de Guinea Ecuatorial. Bebita :    I was born in Madrid, Spain. I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah in the U.S. My parents were involved in the entertainment industry in Spain, so that's how my siblings and I got our start in the industry. Once I got old enough, I kind of just branched out on my own, and started in the entertainment industry in 2017 officially. Since then, I've just done a different variation of commercials. I've done films, short films, TV shows, like somethings that are notable. I guess so far it would be "Caso Cerrado". I was in the new action thriller "Echo Boomers". I've done different commercials, like Mountain Dew, GameStop, stuff like that and that's just basically what I'm still doing today. What is the story that changed your life? Bebita: The story th

HOW JESUS FOUND ME by Anonymous

Image
I grew up in a home of dysfunction, yelling and screaming. My dad was an alcoholic, not knowing how to deal with his anger and pain. He drank to escape. My mom had a lot of fears, some towards men.  And didn't want to be alone. How I felt and thought about myself was similar.  Kids learn by example,  it showed up in my relationships with men also.  Looking for love in all the wrong places so the song goes.  Allowing men to use and abuse me because I didn't know any better and thought that was what I deserved.  Didn't have a good self worth, a healthy one anyway.   I grew up in church and believed there was a God but didn't KNOW HIM.  Now I know I wasn't born again. I only knew a religion, not a relationship with God. I was at rock bottom and started to turn to my Bible,  reaching out to God the best way I knew how. God started to reach me in the hell I was in.  I opened my Bible in my bedroom and mentioned it to God. I can't do this!  I felt like HIS word was to

HEALING AUTOIMMUNE NATURALLY by Marsha Schults

The old me was chronically ill for seven years. I had fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, CFS, IBS, depression and anxiety, insomnia, bladder intolerance, blurry vision, systemic chronic pain, eczema, all over trembling, an involuntary tic in my neck and I could hardly string a sentence together.  I had tried everything in my power to heal naturally but on the way, I needed support and before I knew it, I was on anti-depressants, anti-inflammatories, anti-histamine, steroids, sleep & pain medication. I’d spent over twenty thousand dollars over 10 years with alternative therapists including homeopathy, osteopathy, kinesiology, naturopathy, psychotherapy, massage, oils, chiropractors, B12 Injections, psychology, hypnotherapy, musculoskeletal therapy, nutritional therapy, physiotherapy and more…. I can’t remember how many times I changed diets…   My memory and cognitive function was failing. My doctor offered medical retirement (disability pension) and I secretly longed for a wheeli

WILMA'S TESTIMONY by Wilma/Sheila Freund

Image
I was baptized Roman Catholic at 10 days of age. I grew up in the Catholic church but never fit in at church or school. I was outright rejected. By high school I knew I would one day leave Catholicism. When I married in 1992, I left Catholicism and joined a Methodist church. I attended from 1985 thru one fourth of 1995. I was never happy thee as the sermons were ear ticklers and one pastor admitted that God told him that God approved of abortion. This was 1994. And that day, the Methodists lost me. I don't approve of Liberal churches. I had a conversation with a long time friend and he told me about his church. So on Easter 1995 I took the kids and went to his church. A Holiness church. I knew that first service I had found my church home. No ear tickling sermons and they followed the Bible prescribed way of dress. On July 9, 1995 I made the altar call and gave my heart to Jesus. Immediately I was blessed with the gifts of answered prayer and words of encouragement. I began t
