the story you tell...

Tell me a....

The idea of telling your story isn't a new one, but it is one that I've heard a lot about lately. Elsie and Rachel are teaching a class on this topic. Donald Miller recently wrote about it. The idea of story keeps coming up, and I couldn't let it go.

But think about it. We hear a lot of stories every day. Some are true and some are false. Some are good and some are bad. All have the ability to affect our lives in some way.

This week I'll be sharing more of my story. And I'll be encouraging you to share yours. You'll have the opportunity to ask me questions, and I'll ask some of you too. We'll also hear a story or two from some friends. Speaking of friends, the photos above are by my sister...She is quite good at telling a story in a photo.

Are you ready? Welcome to Story Week.
