Cardboard Testimony

Sam and I had the opportunity to share our testimony at the Easter Sunday Service. However, this wasn't the typical testimony. We were asked to sum up our adoption story in as few words as possible. And by as few, I mean it needed to fit on the front and back of a piece of cardboard.

Let me pause here to say, Excuse Me?

How do you possibly sum up our story? Or anyone's story for that matter. 

But, Sam and I were up for the challenge. And I have to admit, it was a really incredible exercise for us. We had to work through exactly what we wanted the message to be so we shared our story, related to our audience and ultimately, gave glory to God! 

To check out cardboard testimonies click here [this is an example from another church, however I will definitely put up our church's video once it is ready to go]. 

So, here you have it. Our way of expressing our cardboard testimony.


Thank you Jesus for our story. For the gift of life. And for sweet Maximus. What a journey that was truly worth the wait.

What a brilliant idea to take a photo with your "before" and your "after"!!!

Again, your testimony continues to amaze me!

God is faithful!

That's so awesome! Our church did the same thing last summer and we did it with our miscarriage and Sam. What a blessing and I love seeing yours. I'm pretty sure I would've been crying during the service!
