Let the word of Christ dwell richly among you, in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. – Colossians 3:16

Ready to Share Your Hymn Testimonial? Here's How.

Now is your moment to help God's people see the bigger picture of how God uses hymns in the lives of believers, as He moves as He sanctifies His church. 

Here’s how it works:

  • Make sure you're in a quiet place and record yourself sharing a hymn title, a hymn quote and why it’s meaningful to you then email that to me at [email protected].
  • On an iPhone, use the Voice Memos app and on an Android, look for the Voice Recorder app. If this doesn't work for you, you can send me a video and I can extract just your audio for the podcast. 
  • Your audio should be somewhat brief and include your name, your location (optional), a general fact about yourself (like a hobby, your family, your ministry or job), the hymn title, the hymn’s author, a one or two sentence memory associated with the hymn followed by your favorite part of the hymn.

If that sounds like a lot, I assure you, it doesn’t sound like a lot once it's recorded. 

Example Script:

Hi, I’m Kristen Iaffaldano from Knoxville, Iowa where I work from home and my husband is the pastor of Faith Baptist Church here in town.

The Haven of Rest by Henry Gilmour is a meaningful hymn to me because my dad had written the hymn in his Bible and we sang it at his funeral. He was a Navy corpsman so the references to the sea had an especially personal meaning to him and now they have a personal meaning to me. 

May you be blessed with these words from the hymn: 

How precious the thought that we all may recline,

Like John, the beloved and blessed,

On Jesus' strong arm, where no tempest can harm,

Secure in the haven of rest.

I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to publicly apply Colossians 3:16.
