Jim Woodford had no interest in God until he experienced God's miraculous power in our modern world. He was on life support when he received a major wake-up call.
"All the things that I thought were just some crazy, old legend. It's real. It's a dimension that exists. Something far beyond anything I could have ever imagined was happening to me," says Jim.
An ambitious, self-made man, Jim earned the nickname "Diamond Jim." He was focused on providing a life of luxury for his family.
According to his wife, Lorraine, "Nothing was too big of a problem. He could fix it."
Jim says, "I thought that that was my way of showing her how much I loved her, and cared for our family, was by providing everything that I could."
But Lorraine, a Christian, prayed for something more.
Specifically, she prayed, "God, please change his heart. Bring him to know Jesus Christ and just make a change in him and deal with this materialistic way."
Over the years, the money and materialism had started to consume Jim, as he pulled away from his family.
