Why Testify?

Scripture instructs us to share our testimony. Healing, overcoming power, peace and salvation are only a few of the powerful results that occur when one shares their testimony. Revelation 12:10, NIV, explains that satan is the accuser of the brothers, but verse 11 speaks of overcoming:


They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony....


Jesus spilled His blood as the Lamb of God, and now, believers in Christ can use His authority as witnesses to overcome the enemy.  Jesus explained to the Pharisees that His testimony was true and indisputable:


John 8:17-18 NIV

In your own Law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is true. I am one who testifies for myself, my other witness is the Father, who sent me.


Our Heavenly Father stands with us as a witness of all that has been done for us. We are the second witness to testify of God’s glory and grace in our story.


What God has done to transform your life is irrefutable. Since you are of great worth to God, proven by the miracles demonstrated in your life, then the significance of God’s power working in you is worthy of telling.


This is where we feel called to help. We want you to share your story. However, we also understand how intimidating that can be. We’ve been there! Our mission is to help you write your testimony. When your story is finished, you will have developed a product of excellence; a book that can be given to your heirs and sold in the marketplace. God has put His all into the creation of your life and your circumstances, Jesus has put His all into securing your salvation and healing. We want to help you put your all into telling your story.


Our coaches have a wealth of years of combined experience in creating and perfecting written work. We want to offer our services so that the lessons we’ve learned (some through making mistakes) can teach others. Our charges are minimal in comparison to the services offered. 

Services

Luke 14:28-30, NIV, explains the concept of personal investment:


Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’
