Your Move. Your Stories.
At one point I became discouraged with the whole idea of church and faith. However, I came across Your Move with Andy Stanley in December 2014, and I now have a new perspective on how faith and trusting God can change your life.
I have been going through a time of questioning if God has forgotten about me. Your message cut through me at a time when I needed it. Thank you for being on TV. You have reminded me that God is still there.
I started watching your show because I was curious about reconnecting with God. Then I watched the next week, and the next week, and the next. My life is improving a great deal, and I have even reconnected with my children. I cannot begin to describe what this means to me.
I’m 29 and I’ve struggled with my age and comparing myself to the people around me. I’ve dated a little…but I have this ex-neighbor friend. I had fallen asleep during SNL and he texted me as the show was going off and woke me up. He wanted me to visit in the middle of the night, which I’ve done before. I saw your message coming on and have been watching/recording it since. I did “ignore” him that night and I’m working on “ignoring” him. He keeps me from being the person I want to be and he’s a comparison trap in my life. I truly believe that text was sent at that time so I’d hear it and wake up to hear your message. I am hooked! Thank you!
I was recently divorced, and feelings of despair and fear drove me into a deep depression. During that time, I found Your Move and began watching and re-watching each episode. I learned to live in the present, not the past, and I learned how to forgive instead of feeling angry. Andy is a great teacher.
I am “starting over,” so when I saw what the new Your Move series was about, I was stunned and thrilled. It couldn’t have been more timely. I have been through a five-year series of painful, life-shattering events—personally, professionally, and physically. It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom, lost everything, and had nowhere to go, that I realized I wasn’t qualified to manage my own life. God had been there all along, watching over me. I have been given a second chance. I do not want to slip back into my old behavior, so I will be glued to the Starting Over series!
I found Your Move one morning a few weeks ago on TV. I have recently started my recovery for alcoholism and your show is truly helping me reestablish a relationship with God. As I move forward, Your Move will be helping me along the way. Thank you!
Andy’s TV show has changed my life. As a former atheist, I couldn’t have scripted the life changes that God led me to through Your Move.
I’ve made so many poor decisions throughout my life and feel like there’s been no progress. Now I think, What story of my life am I writing? before I make a move. This program has helped me in practical ways and biblical knowledge without being stuck in a church, and I love that it’s on regular TV.
All my life, I have heard God cares for me; however, there was always a “but.” God cares, but you have to do better…God cares, but not as much as you need him to. After listening to Your Move, I now know unequivocally that God knows me and my needs and he truly cares for me.
Last Saturday night, I stumbled across what I thought was a marriage counseling show, Staying In Love. Interesting timing as my husband was away for work and we’d been having some real difficulties. Andy’s messages really spoke to me, and I’ve been listening to his podcast and/or recording the TV shows ever since. I wasn’t a “church person” growing up, but I can easily identify with what he’s saying. I do believe that listening to Andy improved my life and my marriage.
Saturday, I put myself in a slightly sketchy situation by being out too late with someone I knew I shouldn’t be out with. Long story short, we were in this bar listening to a band and, sure enough, Andy’s Guardrails series comes up on all twenty TVs at 1 a.m. throughout the entire bar. What a wake-up call.
After my husband left me for another woman and, ultimately, filed for divorce, to say I was devastated was an understatement. Starting Over gave me the tools I needed to forgive my ex-husband and release my feelings of hurt and bitterness. This series is so practical, and it changed my life!
I’m 21 years old, and I have always struggled with knowing what to do next. Listening to Andy ask, “What is the wise thing to do?” was like a magic formula. Now I always ask myself this question before making ANY decisions.
About two years ago, I started listening to the Your Move podcast, and I have never stopped. Listening to Andy’s messages has truly changed my life and helped me to make better decisions. I am eternally grateful for the impact that Andy and Your Move have had on my life.
