Several weeks ago we published our 25th issue of Shining Stars Magazine! It is amazing to me how the Father has continued to bless our efforts with this ministry! The newest issue’s theme is Testimonies and here are snippets from a few of the articles:
“The life and death conversations never stopped. YHWH was stretching our understanding of life and death. Whose life is this? Are we living it for ourselves? Or are we living it for Him no matter what? What if He takes this baby or me? What then? Do we still trust and shine His light? Although we felt confident in our decisions, we also knew that many of our friends and loved ones do not hold to the same understanding. We often felt the weight of their fear on our shoulders. Fear lurked outside, just waiting for the door to crack open to invite itself in.”
– Andrea Eaton, The Birth Testimony Of Rennah Selah.
“I remember being hungry and my baby sister, age one, being hungry and sneaking food for her along with my twin sister. One time we were caught by my birth father. He shook me over a lit cook-stove and warned me never to do it again. He also tried to kill me by trying to put me in the microwave. I was locked in a boarded-up house, rarely leaving the house and it was filthy. I was a very wild thing, having been forsaken by my birth parents and never learning right from wrong.”
– Hope King, Forsaken But Not Forgotten.
“I had no doubts of His capabilities: I had seen him heal my mother who was dying from loss of blood. I knew He took away my brother’s hernia that “needed” surgery. As a little girl, I saw a lady set free and rise from her sick-chair to a new life (thirteen years later, I still sleep with one of the pillows she made for each of us children). I had played with a little boy who was brought back to life after drowning. I had seen Yahweh provide financially just when it was needed. I just did not know why He wasn’t healing me all the way.”
– Ruth Washburn, Sick As A Dog, Having The Time Of My Life.
“When I backed down from my feminist attitudes, my husband became the leader God wanted him to be and gave him incredible vision for our family. Miraculously, I immediately loved being at home. I did not want to escape anymore. I prayed that God would give me contentment using my gifts and talents within our home and He did!”
– Katie Hignight, Rejecting Feminism: Embracing My Role.
“In areas such as whom they marry or whether or not they tell the truth, etc., we tell our children that they need to control their desires and learn to desire things that are wise and pleasing to our Heavenly Father. But when it comes to physical food, often times people let their desires rule their lives instead of letting wisdom rule their desires … and by example, they teach their children to do the same.”
– Clinton and Sharon Cauthen, Are You Choosing Life?
