As I often do, I stumbled onto an amazing site called “I am Second”. The idea is to share stories and videos of people who faced challenges and trials and through them realize that there is much more to life, that life is not about us. Through their struggles, these people realized that Jesus comes first.
According to the site:
“I am Second is a movement meant to inspire people of all kinds to live for God and for others. Actors. Athletes. Musicians. Business leaders. Drug addicts. Your next-door neighbor. People like you. The authentic stories on iamsecond.com provide insight into dealing with typical struggles of everyday living. These are stories that give hope to the lonely and the hurting, help from destructive lifestyles, and inspiration to the unfulfilled. You’ll discover people who’ve tried to go it alone and have failed. Find the hope, peace, and fulfillment they found. Be Second.
You are here for a reason. We all have needs and could use some help. Talk to us. Call, chat, or email. 24 hours a day.
Go a step further, talk with the people in your life. Spread the revolution of Second. Share the videos with friends. Start an I am Second Group in your neighborhood, workplace, or school or join an I am Second Group already meeting.
Volunteer at concerts. Serve through I am Second community service events. Organize your own I am Second events. Sign up for an I am Second Expedition to help people in other countries. Check out Get Involved for other opportunities. Connect with us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter.
I am Second is designed to help people discover their purpose in life. Have you discovered yours?

I think that pretty much sums it up. I am loving sites like this that seek to evangelize in interesting and approachable ways. These aren’t pastors or evangelists trying to tell us what not to do or how to live. These are people who have been there and know pain and suffering. Most of all, these are people who realize their need for Jesus.
I hope the site inspires you the same as it did me.
