Your Story Matters
Your story is bigger than you know.
No matter who you are or what your age and stage of life, your story matters. From the tiniest details to the most dramatic events, your story is sacred and worthy of attention.
But how do you find and tell that story? In this practical, liberating guide based on her thirty years of writing and teaching, Leslie Leyland Fields will lead you step by step in exploring your past and shaping your memories into vivid, compelling stories. In the pages you’ll soon be writing from your own life, you’ll discover new spiritual truths, reclaim the past, share hope, and pass on your own extraordinary legacy.
Your story matters. It’s time to find and tell the truth of your story. It will be a compelling story. A crafted story. A healing story. A bigger story. And in the finding and telling of this story, you’ll live it too.
Your Story Matters presents a dynamic and spiritually formative process for understanding and redeeming the past in order to live well in the present and into the future. Leslie Leyland Fields has used and taught this practical and inspiring writing process for decades, helping people from all walks of life to access memory and sift through the truth of their stories. This is not just a book for writers. Each one of us has a story, and understanding God’s work in our stories is a vital part of our faith. Through the spiritual practice of writing, we can "remember" his acts among us, "declare his glory among the nations," and pass on to others what we have witnessed of God in this life: the mysterious, the tragic, the miraculous, the ordinary. With a companion video curriculum from RightNow Media, this is a "why not" book as opposed to a "how to" book. Leslie asks each of us an important question: "Why not learn to tell your story, in the context of the grander story of God?"
