The Christian Heart tells inspiring stories of everyday people showing their love for Jesus and the unique ways Christians put their faith in action. It may be little things, but they may have an eternal impact. These are not stories about the pillars of the Christian faith like Billy Graham or Mother Teresa; they are true stories about the man or woman who lives next door to you, and how they are the hands and feet of Jesus in today’s world. Our mission is to encourage Christians to have a stronger walk with The Lord and put their faith into action, and to show everyone what happens when The Lord enters your life.

Here are five of our encouraging stories of faith in action.

1) He was driving his car and saw an elderly man struggling to cut his grass. He got out of the car and helped him finish the yard. When he was driving away, he was amazed at how good that felt. And he truly believed God was telling him to keep doing this. So he started cutting the grass for widows, veterans, disabled or elderly people. For free. He then started a ministry to get kids to do this for others, his way of mentoring and training young men to give back to their community. He now has hundreds of kids taking part in this throughout the country.

2) The journey of a firefighter who left his job to go into full-time ministry, teaching unemployed and often troubled young men the art of woodworking. He teaches them the value of work, how to manage their money, and how to work with integrity. And helps them grow spiritually through praying together and having daily devotion.

He bought an ice cream shop and came up with the idea to hire young adults with special needs: some with autism, some with Down Syndrome. They have been awesome employees. It’s now his goal to change the way businesses hire people with special needs.

It contains food, snacks, Bible verses, blankets, and a book on suffering. She has shipped a box to over 400 people around the United States and to six different countries.
