Like Robert said, we live in a period of time where many are interested in personal stories. That reality led him to write a book about his own conversion experience. While it might not look the same for you, your story is powerful nonetheless and can be a catalyst for others toward a deeper faith in Christ. Ask God to grant you opportunities to share your story with those around you and be bold in obedience when He opens those doors to you.
