I really like the idea of a short-n-sweet, one-liner testimony. I've spent a lot of time telling my story on my web site. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback, and the process of journaling everything has been helpful to me personally... but it isn't very helpful when you only have a couple of minutes to make an impact on someone.
So I've been thinking about how I could express the things God has been doing in my life in "cardboard testimony" format.
This is what I came up with:
Before - Isolated and lonely
After - Part of a loving church family
Before - God seemed harsh and distant
After - God was closer than I thought
Before - Caught up in legalism
After - Free in Christ
Before - Felt like I could never measure up
After - Secure in God's grace
