Hi.  My name is (insert YOUR name).  I want to share something awesome that God has done in my life.

God introduced me to Real Life Stories Lighthouse Christian Testimonies Books through the ministry of Precious Testimonies Evangelistic Ministries ( , and I ordered a few cases of the Real Life Stories Edition 6 through them.  I began to see how people are so receptive to taking them, and in no time I was out of books to put out into distribution for my Lord. 

Struggling that I couldn’t afford to buy MORE boxes of the RLSTB’s, I asked God what I should do about it.  God moved me to order one more box of the testimony books, but instead of giving them out freely like I did previously, I asked God to give me a retail store location where people could BUY the testimony books. 

That was the hardest part – finding a retail location that would allow me to put the books out.  So many owners declined, afraid of course of possibly losing business from the books.  I realized the devil was doing their thinking, but they didn’t want to be confronted with that reality.  The mantra Satan used to do their thinking?: “Better to be safe than sorry.”

Even though I kept telling them that if they would let the books be put on their premise for SALE (NOT FREE), PERHAPS God would be more inclined to BLESS (Prosper) their business, yet that didn’t seem to change their minds. 

After a lot of battling in prayer and waiting much longer than what I was comfortable with – suffering so much discouraging frustration from the “No’s” … FINALLY a door opened.  I promised to give the store owner 60% of the profit I made from the books to make it attractive to them, so that helped. 

The publisher of the testimony books put $14.95 on the back of each book, so I put up a sign that read:  Normally $14.95 – NOW $9.95!  A PRICELESS book of Hope and Encouragement!

I paid the publisher, Jim Barbarossa, Director of STEP-BY-STEP WORLD OUTREACH MINISTRIES ( around $.75 for each book (Contact Jim for an exact price - 219-762-7589 or email him at: ), deducted the 60% for the owner of the business, which was $5.97 per book, and that left me with $3.20 PROFIT PER BOOK. (minus any taxes if applicable).

Once the 60 books were gone, that netted me with $192.00 total profit (60 books times $3.20).  That enabled me to buy ANOTHER box of 60 books from STEP-BY-STEP (At no personal cost to me!) plus put the remaining $44.00 dollars of profit in my bank account so I could use it to put beans and rice on the table and help pay the heat bill so I could eat beans and rice while staying warm in the winter months.

I kept praying, asking and trusting as best as I could – asking my close friends to also join in prayer and trust with what I was doing, because the devil did NOT want this going any further than just that one location.  Yet GOD decided differently! And God was far more into giving the readers of those testimony books just Hope and Encouragement.  He was and IS into seeing people coming to Salvation in Him through them!

So with patience and persistence … then OTHER business owners began to see what was going on and how they could possibly get God's FAVOR on THEIR business ... and asked me if I would put 60 books out (depending on space) for sale at THEIR location, and of course I said, “Sure!  God wants the testimony books available so he can give people Hope and Encouragement!”  Inwardly I was thinking about God using them to help reach lost souls.  (Hope and Encouragement was simply overflow).

And since that all started, I NOW have my own full-time business marketing Real Life Stories Testimony Books for Jesus and it isn’t costing me a dime like it once did.  ONLY GOD CAN DO SUCH A THING!

And maybe God would like you to do the same as I am doing to bless YOU like He is blessing me, all the while helping reach lost souls for Jesus!?

 An Easy Way To Help Share The Gospel Message


Remember:  All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God (which is TRULY OPPORTUNITY!) - making Him FIRST in our life daily if we're wise. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for ETERNITY, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for ETERNITY.  (Matthew 6:19-20 is our assurance.)
