Wow, you all have such inspiring stories. Thanks to everyone who has shared thus far. I guess I should share too!

when i was in high school, i met a Christian friend who kept asking me to go to her church. i grew up in an atheist family and most of my relatives are buddhist, so i really didn't have any way of knowing Christ back then. eventually, my friend convinced to attend church with her, but the experience did not turn out too well...

i got to know her friends at her church, but had a really hard time getting to know Christ due to all the drama that was going on within her group of friends. they all pretended to like one another, but would all jump at every opportunity to backstab each other. although i was very young then, i knew in my heart that that is NOT Christian love. i felt discouraged and stopped hanging around them. i am ashamed to admit that i even stopped studying the Holy Bible then.

a couple of years later, i met my best friend who is also Christian. he never pressured me to go to church or do anything. he let me learn what Christ has done for him and why he has such strong beliefs.

one day, i was over at his house and stumbled across a book. i believe many of you here have heard of it: "The Purpose Drive Life" by Rick Warren. this book really helped me renew my curiosity. I started reading the Bible again. this time around, because i was older, i was able to see the Bible is not just some piece of literature. It encompasses SOOO MUCH more than that!

my best friend then gave me a book called, "Blue like Jazz" by Donald Miller. after reading this book, i bawled my eyes out, but in a really good way. i finally decided to begin my walk with the Lord and i'm happy to let everyone know that i'm still going strong.



Well your storie was very inspiring too

I hope I still remember this.... umm...

I was born a catholic. Some people say the if they were born a religion they have to die in that religion. Well I don't care about that. I moved to the US when i was 2 so my parents found friends and they invited us to their church. I made TONS of friends there. It was really fun. When I was five I became a Christian during a VBS at another sister-church. That was the best time of my life. I felt enlightened. I thenk the Lord for that now. I'm a pretty strong Christian now. Before I was really weak but after I read a book with a Character that was a really really really Inspiring personality. She was like an angel. She was pure and good. I was motivated by her to become a stronger Christian. That's where I'm now today. I'm very happy.

I was the pastors kid and my whole life I have been in the church!!! When I was very young I had an amazing relationship with Jesus Christ. As I started to get older though things became increasingly tough. I lost sight of who I was and was trying so hard to be what everyone else wanted me to be!! I am still stuggling with an addiction but thank God I am delivered!! Without Jesus Christ life is HELL!!!

God helps me out ever since i was young. though i don't realize since i was too smart and relied too much on Science. guess i was too narrow eyed to see Him work back then.

now that I'm in High School [junior high in some nations], I really knew he was helping me out. in fact, i'm considered as the best Gospel sharers in my school. i thank Him for that.

but i admit, i've been poisoned by some friends of mine, pulling me away from Him of some sort. dragging me to "important" seminars which usually happen in Sunday.

but i have the courage to refuse them and use this reason:


if you're happy, i'm happier coz i'm with God.


i'm going strong in Him right now, and i will be till the end.

to God be the Glory.!

Life before i went into christianity pretty much sucked, i mean i was "catholic" till i was around 11... even though we didnt go to church and we still lived the latino life, Partying, Drinking(ive never did), dancing, alot alot of money, a awesome family, but i still felt a huge empty hole in my heart. Then... something went wrong in that "pefect" life. Me and my sis were in school break and my mother came home that morning and she came ryt to us and said, Girls i need to talk to you... then she looked into our eyes and said I dont love your dad anymore. I ,since i have seen alot of dramas, said is it another guy? she camly said no... my sis ran to the room crying and... guess what?? I HAD TO COMFORT MY MOM.. yea... i had to hug her while SHE was crying... all i could do was look up the ceiling wondering WTC?? what happened?? she bribed us to calm down with my cousins coming over. It made me really happy for awhile...then... my dad came home and we locked eyes. I walked to him as if i had no control and we went out and starting crying. My cousins end up having to go home and my parents were fighting.. Fastfoward to alot of fighitng, then we found out... My mom cheated on my dad and was wit someother guy.. all i could think was... she LIED to me... but something ELSE happened... MY MOM FOUND OUT SHE WAS PREGNANT..yea... a baby on the way.. well im going to make this shorter since its long>< my cousins invited us.. but my mom(dramaqueen) didnt want to go so she went to another.. but... the church me and my mother went to... was closed so we went with my father.. well longer story short I got baptised at the age of 12, the baby is my fathers after many tests, and my parents are together. I do not regret what happened since knowing my parents... we would never had went to church if this didnt happen... Since life is hard i hope you guys can pray for me and my family, there is alot of stress in the world now.. Praise the lord and i hope God blesses everyone^^

Hello..
Im Aya..14 yrs old..
Im new here..

okay..

Im not born in a Christian Family,they're Catholic. But I studied in a Christian School since Grade 2, so everyday I hear the Word of God. I'm a kind and nice girl. I mean, having God in our lives is such a wonderful thing. Im so blessed now that I have Him in my heart. I accepted God in my heart as my personal Saviour last August 10, 2006 in our CBF (Campus Bible Fellowship) when I was in first year high school. I don't really remember but after I accepted him, I felt relieved. Before I used to think that being good is enough, because in our school, I was considered good,nice girl,almost perfect.you know.But being good is nothing without Chirst. Being good is not enough, it's useless without Him. And we must also realized that as soon as we become Christians, there are always problems because it's all part of our spiritual growth. Right now, Im having problems that I haven't experienced before, and I do is pray and leave it to God. I hope I can share to you the problems im having now.

mhmm... my turn. Philippines

One day, i was walking home when some hoodlums, or so i call them, and they tried to stop me from walking and almost grabbed my Phone. I wasn't a REAL CHRISTIAN at that time, so i ran and prayed silently, waiting for a Cab to come and pick me up and bring me home.

I kept running and I saw traffic along the way, and i saw a Plate number with the words "Bored of Traffic? PRAY". And So i kept praying to God that may these people leave me alone and never to chase me anymore. Until i saw a taxi with a paper sticked on its window saying.

"Thanks For Praying with me"

Coincedence? I don't Think so, I rushed and it had no passengers, so i told the driver to bring me Home, Fast.

I saw the Grace of God from here, and I will keep it eternally.
