Homeless. Sleeping in a car with my newborn.

Shauna

I slept in the car one night with my newborn baby. That was one of those “God, why me” moments.

Asked God to kill my husband.

Tisa

By the time I was nineteen, I was extremely bitter, angry, volatile … violent. I had become a kleptomaniac I was addicted to stealing everything around me. I was heavily on drugs and had really pushed everybody out of my life...

No one in the youth group would talk to me.

Chantz

Even in your most lonely moments God is there.

First child at 13, then prison, then a city leader.

Demetrus

That little spark started from there and then I said; “I’m just going to run for office.”

From the next school superintendent to crackhead.

Dexter

I had a big head and a big attitude to go along with it. I had the house, cars, the boat; the middle class dream. All of a sudden I started making some real bad choices.

Will anyone love this hungry orphan?

Dian

They were told I was really small, that I had a heart condition, and that my growth had been so impaired I looked like a two year old. There answer was, “We think God wants us to take him.”

Illiterate, lived in a shack, but still found success.

Eddie

I was illiterate. I couldn’t read until the seventh grade. I had a speech impediment. I was mocked through school. I wore hand-me-down clothes. But in the seventh grade .....

Headed to abortion clinic just after recommitting to Christ.

Evie

I remember her beginning to cry. She asked me, “Before you leave would you mind to watch this video?” So she comes in and puts this video on and leaves a little box of Kleenexes next to me.

From poverty, near abortion and death, to dreams and miracles.

Ishmael

Her grandmother threw her out. She lived in a little 16‘x9’ shack by the roadside. I was born in that little shack.
