A Personal Testimony from Yours Truely


“Return home and tell how much God has done for you.”

~ Luke 8:39

Presenting with excitement, I introduce to you Testimony Tuesdays!!! A testimony by definition is: a formal written or spoken statement, a public recounting of a religious conversion or experience. The Bible commands us in numerous places to bring praise, glory, and honor to our God by proclaiming, declaring, and telling about His marvelous works to others. That is the purpose and heart behind this installment for my Tuesday posts. Each Tuesday (more or less), a testimony will be shared here involving the recounting of salvation, redemption, overcoming, and/or healing just to name a few; A story that brings glory to our God and in which we might be encouraged, spurred on, and challenged with at the same time.The stories that will be shared will either be of my own personal experiences, excerpts from books, testimonies I find via youtube or other media sources, as well as YOURS! I would love to know and give you the opportunity to share here with us a testimony of your own, of whatever fashion that involves the Lord doing a transforming work in your life. Just email me your testimony and I will see what I can do about posting it on a future Tuesday! You may choose to have your name be known or anonymous. I look forward to hearing from you!

When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
 ~1 Corinthians 2:1-5

Presented below is a 20-minute video clip of me sharing a part of my personal testimony at the 2016 Ballet Magnificat SDI. Please keep in mind that speaking in front of a crowd of 300-some people is not exactly in my comfort zone. If you are interested in hearing a story about a ballerina in search of identity and purpose and who ends up finding it in Jesus who turns her life upside-down, and you are willing to hear it delivered from me, a mousy half-baked public speaker, then stick around! I know I am by no means a trained or skilled public speaker, nor do I consider myself to be a good communicator, so please be gracious if you choose to view this, turn up your speakers as the audio is low, and be blessed. ^_^
