Invisible Influence: “I Am Second”

Awhile back I was introduced to “I Am Second,” a website which includes the stories of athletes, musicians, actors, and other notable people.  Some of the stories of spiritual transformation are quite amazing!

Two of the stories I found of interest included Stephen Baldwin from “The Usual Suspects” and Brian Welch of Korn.


In both instances, they mentioned random people unknown to the rest of the world who helped them connect personally to God.  For Stephen it was the housekeeper and for Brian it was the real estate broker.  The heroes from these stories were Augusta and Eric –  invisible yet powerful influences.  Random people making a remarkable difference.

We may be surprised with who is already looking for God and who we can influence if we have the courage and humility to serve those around us.

    I was really touched by both of these but laughed and cried at Stephens. I love this sight and am awaiting more stories.

    cool/interesting site and concept.

    unfortunately there’s only 5 women telling their stories (out of 23 people featured). last time i checked we represent a higher percentage of the population.
