Throughout history, God has used stories of ordinary and extraordinary people to show His power and purpose. From Abraham and Moses to Mary and the woman at the well, we have learned how faith fuels a life. Today is no different. From the corners of Oklahoma, from the urban centers to the rural spaces, God’s story is made clear in the lives of people—our friends, our heroes. For some, their stories are played out on a national stage, for others their lives are known locally. But God’s story, as lived out through God’s people, is always powerful regardless of the scope of influence. Well-known Oklahoman Jane Jayroe gathered the stories of men and women from throughout our state who were willing to share their faith in order to strengthen our own. It’s not about spiritual perfection; it’s about authentic insight into personal faith journeys.
