I became a Christian on July 7, 2015, after a very pleasant adult life of firm atheism. I’ve found myself telling “the story” when people ask me about it—slightly tweaked for my audience, of course. When talking to non-theists, I do a lot of shrugging and “Crazy, right?

Remember that time when you slipped & fell?
That was really me in the future, in heaven, & invisible coming back to the past & tripping you.
We had a laugh about it in the future :)
