So often we underestimate the power of a Christian testimony which reveals how God has impacted and changed a person’s life.

Yet, in the book of Revelation, the Apostle John says that the believer’s testimony is one of the weapons we can use to defeat Satan:

10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.(Revelation 12:10-11 NASV)

Former White House secretary and Fox News co-host, Kayleigh McEnany, recently authored a new book,Serenity in the Storm: Living Through Chaos by Leaning on Christ scheduled for release on May 2, 2023.

In the book, she talks about the power of personal testimony.

Fox News provided an excerpt from the book, where McEnany talks about how transformed lives impacted by the resurrected Christ (testimonies) are evidence of the reality of God.

McEnany writes:

In my interview with Asmaan in chapter two, recall how she marveled at the two Afghan brothers, one with murderous tendencies, both of whom were inexplicably transformed by the love and power of Jesus Christ. In addition, I found ample evidence of these heart transformations, as I will call them, in the various books I referenced from Christian apologetics. As I mentioned, several of the authors I cited—Collins, McDowell, Strobel, Lewis, and Lapides—were all atheists who eventually came to the truth of Christianity. While they began the journey with their minds, they concluded with their hearts.

McEnany also shared her personal story about what happened to her after she graduated from college and moved to New York City to work as an assistant on with Huckabee Show on Fox News, where she attended Journey Church.

At one point during my three years in the city, I remember feeling so lonely. I left work and went back to my small, basically windowless apartment. I tried calling my mom, but she wasn’t by her phone. I laid in my bed and prayed to God: “If you’re out there, I need to hear from you right now.” I kid you not. In that very moment, my phone lit up. It was a number I didn’t recognize with a New York area code. And while I typically don’t pick up numbers I don’t know, in that moment, I was happy to talk to anyone—even a telemarketer! 

I answered the phone, “Hello.” 

I will never forget the first words that I heard in reply: “Hi Kayleigh. This is The Journey church. How can we pray for you today?”
