Summer Pursuit Testimonies

Here are a few of the wonderful testimonies that we have received from young women who took part in the Summer Pursuit this past summer! We plan to post more in the days to come, so be sure to check back! May the Lord bless you ALL as you continue to pursue our precious Savior! He is worth seeking with all that we are!

I really enjoyed being a part of the Summer Pursuit this year! It helped me to stay in the habit of spending time with God – even in the busy summer months. It has strengthened my faith in Christ and I have learned a lot!
~ Bethany, Texas

I truly believe I fell in love with Jesus even more. I mostly learned more about new attributes of God and how forgiving He is. He’s more wonderful to me every day! I learned so much this summer – so much more about Jesus – and I can’t wait to learn more!
~ Lily, Iowa

This summer has been a wonderful summer. God has done so much in my life; so many blessings! Reading my Bible every day was very hard. I failed many times, but God gave me strength and helped me persevere even though I was busy and sometimes didn’t want to be in God’s Word. Reading everyday has helped me learn more about Who my saving God is; but there is so much more to know! Memorizing verses was especially helpful. Now I have God’s words and promises in my head with me all the time! Before I never really made myself memorize God’s Word, but now that I have, I am so glad. God has been so gracious and good to me, more than I deserve. ~ Minnesota

I was so encouraged by it, and feel that I have drawn a lot closer to the Lord!
~ Martha, Alabama

What a blessing to have a set time each day for reading His Word and also to have accountability for memorizing. Accountability really helps and it was wonderful to get to talk and be encouraged every 2 weeks when we talked! The time requirement led me to spend more time in the Word and made me more “at home” in regard to where different verses/passages are found… and opened my eyes to new ones. I’ve found many “treasure” verses throughout this summer…
~ Maggie, Alabama

I’ve been blessed by how God has used the Summer Pursuit to show me the eternal importance of spending time with Him (in His Word). Our summer was super busy with so much to do and no matter what did get done, I look at my chart and see a huge amount of total time that I know was not wasted… it was spent in the best possible way. No regrets!
