Real Life Stories Christian Testimony Target Audience Books

Step By Step Ministries, is partnering with people just like you to develop a complete line of Real Life Stories target audience books to speak to lost people in their area of passion 
and at the same time to give people like you a tool that you can use in your specific area of ministry. 


Below are some of the books we are going to be developing over time:

    (We will do one of these for every State in the USA)

  • Real Life Stories - Local Church Name Here  
    (We will work with and design books to meet the need of local churches and ministries across the USA) 

The idea is to give people easy to use, inexpensive tools in their area of ministry to reach their target audience with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. \

Remember these books do not yet exist in the physicalat this point they are a vision that God has given us and we are taking the first step to bring each book into existence.


The following are the 5 target audience books we are presently working on


The Inmate to Inmate Christian Testimony Book features the God Glorifying testimonies of 30 inmates that have been
 saved by the grace of God and now are willing to use their stories to bring a message of hope to other inmates
20,000 copies of the  Inmate to Inmate book were printed in March of 2014. 20,000 more were printed in May of 2014.

We have one person that has contacted us and said they are praying about being a part of this book .


Please read the following very carefully and prayerfully

We are already getting a lot of emails and some calls from people in ministries wanting to be in books that target their area of ministry.  Some have even shown an interest in being in 2 books

This shows us that people in ministry or people passionate about reaching lost souls see the value of being in a book of testimonies  and being able to give it to people in their area of ministry.  This will be a tool they can use for the life of their ministry.

We have successfully printed and used Real Life Stories books to reach the lost for about 7 years.

We were able to print 100,000 copies Real Life Stories - Volume 3, and it made its way into 102 nations of the world.

Recently God gave me the idea of doing a book for inmates, then truckers, then motorcycles, then veterans and classic cars.  Besides the 5 books pictured above, God has given me ideas for another dozen target audience topics.


I know nothing about any of these areas of ministry, but I do know how to organize people'Christian testimonies into a book  
and get it printed so it can be used to reach the lost.


At this point we have successfully done 5 books and we know how to do more. 

We are to facilitate this, make it happen, so other ministries can have these great tools to use in their area of passion and ministry.

We get nothing out of this in the natural realm, but in the spiritual realm we will hear, "Well done obedient servant",  and we will meet people in heaven and some will say:

"Thank you for the book of Inmate to Inmate."  

"Thank you for the book for Truckers." 

"Thank you for the book about Classic Cars." 

"Thank you for the book about Motorcycles." 

"Thank you for the book for Veterans."  

"I read it and gave my life to Jesus!!!!! 

That's what we get out of it!!  We are willing to do our part and hope others will do their part
