Guidelines to Help You to Write Your Story/Testimony for a 3-Fold Flyer or Book. Part 1 - Describe what your life was like before coming to the Lord. Part 2 - Tell how you came to the Lord. Part 3 - Describe what your life is like now. Describe the changes between part 1 and part 3. Brag on God and what He has done for you!
Tell your story in the order that it happened. Do not bounce around from the present to the past. Use your age to help you tell the story. Start sharing your life from say age 3 to 10, then tell some things from age 11 to 20, then 20 to 30, etc.
Do not insert scripture in your story. Just tell your story. Keep it simple. Do not thank God at the end of every sentence. Just tell your story. Do not try to teach in your story. Just tell your story.
Paint a picture with your words!
∙Finish by signing your testimony with your first name. ∙If you wish to give the reader your contact information, please use a phone number and/or email address that will remain active for many, many years ahead. ∙If you would like to use your church or ministry contact info, please provide it. (Name, address, phone number, text number, email address.)
Do not worry about a title. We will take care of it.
Do not talk in Christian language. Talk or write in plain simple English. Remember your audience is a lost soul. Your purpose in writing this is to reach lost souls. Do not preach! Do not teach! Do not share your pet doctrines! Simply share what Jesus has done for you and will do for the reader.
Did not push or slam any denominations. Do not drop names of important people or places. Use only first names if you refer to other people in your story.
The length of your written testimony should be around 1000 to 1100 words.
There is $22 charge for the type setting and editing for each 3-fold flyer.

If submitting your story for a book, we will need a picture. Here are the guidelines: ∙Take a head to chest picture with a nice big smile! ∙Stand in front of a white, beige, or light blue wall with nothing else in the background. ∙Do not crop or edit the photo. ∙Send it as a full-sized jpeg in high resolution.
If you have any questions or need any additional help, please ask. Email firstname.lastname@example.org Or call or text 219-762-7589.
Our end goal is to help you get your testimony in a book that you can use in your city to reach lost souls. Until you are in a book, you can use your story in a 3-fold flyer and give it away with a book. See the picture below:
When handing the books out you simply say, “That brightly colored flyer is my story, and my story will be in the next book.” God Bless You! Jim and Carla Barbarossa Porter Indiana Jimbarbarossa7@gmail.com www.step-by-step.org 219-762-7589
