Powerful conversion stories – testimonies – is one of the most beautiful graces from God. It lets us know that in our imperfections, our moments of deep sin, and when we have lost all hope – God is there to open our eyes to his divine mercy, forgiveness and love.
I was touched by Shia LaBeouf’s conversion for many reasons, the first is when my kids were young we were a fan of his Transformer films. The second reason is his life mirrors much of the decadences – self affliction and pain of not only those in the entertainment business, but those who are creative, young, and broken. So many of us were lost in secular culture and Shia LaBeouf’s conversion story reminds us that Jesus is every present knocking at our door, waiting for us to open it for him.
It is a good idea to look at the other videos and commentary by other interviewers. They provide a more deeper perspective on Shia LaBeouf’s faith journey. It also opens up for many the traditional vs the modernist (Vatican II and post) movement in the Catholic Church.
I sometimes feel I am not doing enough to tell others of our amazing merciful God. I am predominantly home bound and overcoming my own personal challenges. I am not a theologian, a layperson or anyone special. I am simply a wife and mom who loves the triune. Nowadays I’m also spending a lot of time caring Candy – our family Keeshond whose lost the use of her hind legs. It is by the grace of God with the Holy Spirit working in me that I can share with others from where I am.
I came across some incredible conversion stories which I created a page for:
Each story is a gripping and beautiful testament of God’s grace and mercy, as well as their incredible journey to Him.
I hope to add to this page and hope each of you will be inspired, touched and moved by their stories to live a deeper walk with Jesus.
God is there for us, and sometimes He creates situations that leads us to him through others. Each story is unique just as each of us is special and different, and there are elements in each story that teaches us something new and wonderful about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, our Blessed Mother, saints and angels.
