Conversions

Greg converts from following Satan to God

"I had lost my marriage, my job, my house, and my car. I was fifteen-thousand dollars in debt because of all the medical bills, and I even lost what little peace of mind I once had, because of the man who died after the accident. It was as if the whole world had ended. There was nothing but darkness. ...so I decided to become more deeply involved in the occult."


Before I came to know Jesus Christ, my life was really a search for happiness, though I was striving after things that didn't have happiness in them: money, sex, jobs, possessions, psychic power, and other…

God saved his marriage, cured his depression

This true story of coming back from deep depression is very hard for me to believe, because it was written and sent to me by Gerry, the very stable, very well respected leader of our church men's fellowship. He's been at it for almost 20 years... every Saturday morning. He's allowed a group of 20 men to set a new norm in their lives, and that's to live for Jesus. I find it virtually impossible to think he had such difficulty earlier in his life. But Jesus can do anything, even for people whose marriages are in trouble and who are considering suicide. - Bill Schaef

Even though I was…

I felt arms around my body, but couldn’t see anyone

"I tried to say I was sorry, but I broke into tears – too much to speak, and I fell on the floor and cried."


I was a baptized Catholic who no longer went to church, didn't pray, and definitely did not exemplify a Christian lifestyle. I had been singing in a rock-n-roll back for four years and had all of the vices of a fast track lifestyle.

I began seeing a woman who was in the middle of a divorce. I decided to leave the band because neither the money and alcohol, nor the women in the clubs could fill the emptiness in my heart. I was searching for love and I thought she was…

Felt forgiven after having an abortion

This story, written by Deb from Indiana.  Because of my role as a pro-life organizer, I receive stories of people who have had abortions and how it affected them. This story is appropriate for this website because it tells of how God played a part in this woman's recovery after her abortion. [The bracketed words below are my additions.] - Mike Stack


I had an abortion because I was so ashamed of the [promiscuous] life I had been living and couldn't face the judgment I believed would come from my friends and family [when they discovered I was pregnant]. I grew up in church and had…

From Pain to Healing thanks to God's Forgiveness

The following story was written by Tracy, from Connecticut in the United States.  Because of my role as a pro-life organizer (with "Silent No More" and "Rachel's Vineyard"), I receive stories of people who have had abortions and how it affected them. This story is appropriate for WTNESS.ORG because it tells of how God played a part in this woman's recovery after her abortion.  I am also a friend of Bill Griffin, another regular contributor on this site.  His wife works at the same hospital as my wife, and my daughter babysat their children when they were young. 

Within a year of my…

Scientist Francis Collins, Head of 'Human Genome Project', Finds God

Dr. Francis Collins is renowned for heading the Human Genome Project, which decoded the Human Genome for the first time in history.  Prior to this work, he was an atheist.  After being amazed at the precise and complex design of DNA, he concluded there must have been a God to have created such a marvel; it could not have been chance.


If someone had asked me what is the language of God, I would have replied, "mathematics" without hesitation. Given what physics has learned about the universe in the last 100 years and its origins, the discovery of quantum mechanics and new but slow…

How the power of Christ turned hatred into Love

Jacob DeShazer watched as his fellow WWII soldiers were executed and starved in a Japanese prison, and developed a deep hated for the Japanese. Remembering his childhood teaching about Jesus urging forgiveness, he returned to Japan after the war to preach the love of Jesus, and converted the Japanese pilot who led the raid on Pearl Harbor.


“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

This verse from the Bible was taken at face value by the DeShazer household in a small Oregon town in the 1930’s where the children,…

Basketball Church

I used to play basketball regularly on Sunday mornings. At that time I didn’t go to church at all. The gym where I played was 17 miles away from my home. A nice little distance. One particular Sunday morning I was out on my porch at home and from there I could see a half-court basketball court. I was thinking to myself, “Rather than go to that gym 17 miles away, it would be nice to get a game right here in my backyard. I would settle for a good half-court competition to eliminate the long haul up and back in exchange for my normal full court workout.”

After fantasizing for a…
