How One Day Changed Six in My Family Forever

Muriel Calhoun's Story

Born into a bi-racial family, Muriel Calhoun knew the sting of being turned away from churches. She thought God wanted nothing to do with her, so she wanted nothing to do with Him. Lots of friends invited her and her husband to NewSpring, but they said no, thinking they didn’t need God. But then she lost her job, they were having trouble with the kids, and their marriage was starting to fall apart. They decided one night to go to church because they believed there had to more than life.

When Pastor Perry gave a salvation invitation Muriel gave her life to Jesus. As she walked towards the front she realized her husband and daughter had given their lives to Jesus, too. Later that evening they brought their three boys to a service and they, too, gave their lives to Jesus. Now instead of being worried, frustrated and angry the Calhoun family can trust Jesus to deal with it and to light the way for them. Because of NewSpring and God, their family is now at peace and complete.

Watch the video to see how an invite to NewSpring Church transformed the destiny of Muriel and her family.
