Transformed by TRUTH

2nd Quarter 2019

Transformed by TRUTH image oneAshlee had a big dilemma. As she explains it, “I wanted to serve God, but I also wanted to fit in.” As a young adult, she became weary of living a double life and needed to make a change.

By God’s grace, you played a key role in leading her to live solely for the Lord!

Ashlee grew up in a devoted Christian family. Active in youth groups and Bible camps, she accepted Christ into her heart.

When she was young, Ashlee didn’t recognize that her dad was different. He was just a regular, caring father to her. But when she started school, she found out that he was famous. Her father played for two professional football teams, winning two Super Bowls during his career. That made her different to others, and Ashlee became the target of jealousy and bullying at her school. “I wanted to be liked by my peers, but I wasn’t. Kids can say some really harsh things, and that gave me great insecurity.”

Transformed by TRUTH image oneEventually, Ashlee—who was athletic like her dad—won a full university scholarship and became captain of her soccer team. But this time, peer pressure was threatening her relationship with God. “It’s really difficult to go to a school that isn’t based on God. I did plug into some Christian groups, but I also wanted to fit in with my team. I was living a double life.”

Ashlee felt like she was swimming upstream. “I was so sick of the struggle, of going back and forth. I wanted to get right with God. I didn’t want to be lukewarm anymore.” Transformed by TRUTH image two

At another school, Ashlee met Andrew, who was also on fire for the Lord. They prayed together about God’s direction for their lives. “We wanted to live in reckless abandon for our Creator.”

After they married, she spent a summer coaching soccer in New Jersey, while he worked in Alaska. When they reunited, Ashlee started listening to a set of Amazing Facts audio messages—from The Prophecy Code series. The lessons profoundly touched her heart. “Everything I heard was Scripture proving Scripture proving Scripture. God became more real to us than ever before.”


HITTING THE JACKPOT!


HITTING THE JACKPOT! image oneSoon they found Amazing Facts online, a resource you help to provide to seekers every day, and they were thrilled to discover all the materials available. “We thought we’d hit the jackpot!” Ashlee says. 

HITTING THE JACKPOT! image twoAshlee was relieved to discover the Bible’s teachings that hell isn’t a place of eternal torment and that when people die, they sleep. “I’d hear how people believed that the spirits of the dead came back as animals and would even send messages. I was glad to know the truth and realize that it was very clear in Scripture: There are no messages from the dead.” And studying the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation with Amazing Facts took her lifelong walk with God even deeper.

To Amazing Facts and all those who make this ministry possible, Ashlee says, “I want to thank you for changing my life. Pastor Doug made the Bible easier to understand. All my answers are right there. I can always look to the Bible for truth.”
