Unpicking the truth behind the world’s greatest life stories…
The real life stories website is about real people. Each one has an inspiring and exciting life story to share. Some of the stories may sound relatively ordinary, others are quite dramatic. But in every case there is a very supernatural element leading to a complete change in direction and a more fulfilled life.
There are some very recognisable names and faces – celebrities, sportsmen, musicians etc, but there are also many ordinary people living ordinary lives out of the media spotlight. All of these people have discovered that there is a God who loves them. In many cases this discovery has come at a time of crisis, but sometimes it has just happened when life seemed to be pretty normal. In every case, these people have realised that God loves us as individuals and cares about our unique circumstances.
We do hope that you will find these inspirational stories helpful. If we can help you further, please get in touch. There is a free booklet available explaining what it is to be a Christian – just leave your details HERE and we will send it to you free of charge.
Real Life Stories online is non-denominational and our foundation of faith and belief is the Nicene Creed.
In the majority of cases we are happy for churches and Christian organisations to use the articles and stories from this website. Please contact us first as some stories may be subject to copyright from freelance contributors. In every case please make mention of reallifestories.org
The vision of reallifestories.org is simply to share the great news of Jesus Christ with the world. This website will also soon be available in Mandarin and Spanish so that the three major world languages will be covered.

The Real Life Stories website has followed the legacy of Real Life magazine, a full-colour magazine started by Ralph Burden and Ian Buck and published between 2006 and 2008 by Christian Life Resources (CLR). Publishing thousands of glossy magazines and then giving them out free is a very expensive business and the publishing company was an unfortunate victim of the ‘credit crunch’ and subsequent economic downturn. However, the initial disappoinement has been eclipsed by a new and bigger vision. Our former vision of getting a regular magazine into every UK home is firstly much closer through the e-magazine format. But crucially and secondly, the web format reaches much further afield as the website can be seen worldwide wherever there is internet access.
Samples of the published magazine can still be viewed via the links below.
