“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 12:11)
How many testimonies have never been heard because someone never took the time to share them?
This book is filled with testimonies of how God showed up in my life. I pray you are inspired and filled with hope, and that God shows up in your life, so you may also testify of what God has done.
My prayer for you: Father God, may your Spirit move and rest on those who read these words. May you comfort, strengthen, and help them all the days of their lives. May love flow from these pages into their hearts and fill them with hope that will compel them to share what you have done in their lives! Amen.

I have had the great fortune to get to know Rev. Stacy Cope, and this book speaks to who he truly is: a man of God. In this book, one will experience the power and mercy of God through the eyes of a true Christian. Moreover, the way the book is written, it feels as if Rev. Cope is sitting down and having a conversation. His message is straightforward, and his book shows the life of a good man with an even more amazing God! For readers who are unfamiliar with the Christian faith or readers who what to see the work that God can do, I highly recommend this book. Rev. Cope is a great pastor that is easily relatable to, and he has an inspiring way to connect with people. Also, as a first-time author, Rev. Cope does an astonishing job of being able to keep the reader’s attention. So, if you are looking for a great weekend read, this book would be a great way to devote a Saturday afternoon too!

Easy Read – Powerful Faith of a First Time Author – For All Audiences
This book is written in a way that is “conversational” – such as like being with the Author in a personal sitting. He shares these TRUE stories in a way that any audience can understand, whether you are in the Christian Faith, or just exploring its subject to your personal life. You will probably do a little bit of crying, laughing, and if a Believer, – worshiping the Power of God using a normal, young pastor in a small VA town, with a normal life, – with one exception – a LARGE FAITH and being sensitive to the power of UNTOLD TESTIMONIES, – that when shared, enlighten the reader to say, “hey, this made a difference in Stacy, – and why can’t it make a difference in my life! – I ask you to take the challenge to unlock the pages and see what sometimes seems “unbelievable” – yet, Truth Prevailing from these pages to your heart. As a former Law Enforcement Trooper, it was almost like an “investigation” into a case study as I read some of the stories, sitting with excitement to see the outcome of Faith evidence.
