The Story

It all began with my going to church. I was going for quite a while (about 20 years). I heard the message of Salvation, went forward in church, asked Jesus into my heart. One year I got over one hundred glass mugs and used my sand blaster to etch God Loves [The person's name] and a Cross on each mug and gave them out at Christmas.

Yet, with all this, I didn't know where I would go when I died. How often does it happen that someone from church comes over to you and talks to you about getting to heaven? Not too often. And how sure are you that the person sitting next to you will go to heaven?

I felt, how nice it would be to have a tract rack that is designated just for personal testimony tracts from the congregation. Or even a Web Site from people all over! (The webmaster of your church is welcome to use this program for your church's web site, or for a tract rack in your own church.)

Practice Directions

As you type your input you may want to use some HTML tags to improve the finished look of your tract. HTML Tags usually include an OPEN Tag and a CLOSE Tag. The close tag looks like the open tag except that it has a forward slash "/" inside it. You will see in the examples below.

Makes things Bold <B>Makes things Bold</B>

Underlines Text <U>Underlines Text</U>

The <font> tag has several attributes which are

  • <font color=red>Makes Red Text</font> Makes Red Text
  • <font size=1>Sizes can be from 1 - 7</font> Sizes can be from 1 - 7
  • <font face="impact">The Double Quotes are needed if the name of the face is more than one word.</font> The Double Quotes are needed if the name of the face is more than one word.

If you want extra spacing use the <BR> OPEN Tag
Karl's Tract Writer is designed so when you use the ENTER Key it automatically inserts a paragraph and indents the first line.

Using the space bar repeatedly will only add one space.

Type some text with font tags of your choice in the Text Area Box below, then click the Test Your Tags button.

Practice HTML


As you are typing you may have to turn off your computer. The only way to save what you have already done is to click the Save Work button at the bottom of the page. Then the next time you open it the text boxes will be already filled in with what you typed.

When you are finished save the Code in NotePad and change the txt extension to html.

Some Options

If you would like you can send your tract to me (with the image file) and I'll decide if I want to put it on my Web Site. It would be nice to have a place for viewing several personal testimony tracts and see how the Lord works in the lives of others! Any tract that I put on my web site I will also convert it to a Microsoft Word Document that can be folded into three like a normal tract.

There are checkboxes below that you can use to let me know your wishes should you send it to me.

If you send your tract to your Church Webmaster, also send them the image file.

A red Asterisk * means if you don't fill it in you will be prompted to, but you can over-ride it.

*   Type Your Name.

*   Type a Title for your Tract.       No HTML Tags in the Title

*   Type a Summary for your Tract. Two sentences that will make someone want to read it.
