The Power of Your Story

When you share a story from your life you are sharing yourself.
Stories are powerful because life itself is a story and happens in story.
Stories are powerful because they resonate with people as much or more than almost anything else.
When someone dies, we we engage in the powerful practice of telling the stories of their life.
When someone is married, born, impacted in a good or bad way...there is a story.
You have a story.
I wonder what would happen if we were more intentional about sharing our stories.
I think our lives would increase in their positive impact on those we care about.
I encourage you to a story on yourself to someone today.

“I'll never quit telling the story of your love... Your love has always been our lives' foundation.” Psalm 89:1
“...You can tell the next generation detail by detail the story of God, Our God forever, who guides us till the end of time.”                  Psalm 48:12

“Tell your children about it in the years to come, and let your children tell their children.  Pass the story down from generation to generation." Joel 1:3
