“Humility” by Veronica McDonald (2018)

We are looking for Christian Testimonies for our Blog!

A Christian testimony is the story of how a person came to know Jesus Christ. It often includes (but is not limited to):

  1. the story of a person’s life before Christ
  2. the story of how the Lord saved him/her
  3. a short reflection of his/her new life in Christ


Word count: between 500 – 4,000 words

Testimonies may be previously published. We only ask for the non-exclusive right to publish it on our blog.

A selection of testimonies will be posted weekly during the month of October in our blog, separate from our regularly published issues.

Read some of our published testimonies here.

Deadline: September 30th.
