What's Your Story?

girl writing in a journalThe end of the year seems like the perfect time to tell stories. In fact, the team at liesyoungwomenbelieve.com is gathering stories of what God has done in girls’ lives this year. And we’d love to hear your story.

Here are just a few of the stories the stories you’ve already told us this year.

I wanted to thank you all for your ministry. This is my first time commenting on here, but last year I was struggling with a sin issue. I couldn’t get out. I read blog posts on here, and they kept saying that we should confess sin to others to help get out of the bondage. I was so nervous and scared to tell someone, but I eventually went to my youth pastor’s wife and got help. She talked with me, and she encouraged me to tell my parents. I did, and they were all so helpful and loving to me. Thanks again for your posts! I was definitely under conviction after reading them. I have been free from that sin area for six months now!!!! Praise the Lord! —Heart4missions

There is no doubt that God has led me to this place. He has led me to read the book and doing so has led me to this awesome community of young girls who want to get closer to Christ! :) These stories have blessed me big time, especially after a very difficult breakup with a guy from church. God never ceases to amaze me, He is too good! (And more detailed than any man will ever be lol). —Godsmiracle

This is the first time I’ve EVER visited this site (which is wonderful, by the way) and wouldn’t you know that several of your posts are about the SAME exact thing that I’ve been dealing with:

• Loneliness
• Lack of friendships
• Sadness

I praise God for showing me this site! Your posts have given me so much to think about, so much to pray about, and more than anything, encouragement. Going on my favorites on my browser now! God is so good. —Lexi

We can’t wait to hear your story. Don’t feel like you have to focus on the impact of this site. We are especially interested in stories about how God has worked in your life this year.

So…

Email Stories@ReviveOurHearts.com with your story in 500 words or less or send us a link to your two to four minute YouTube video. You never know—we might share your story as we reflect on what God has done in 2012.
