Writing It Out: What's Your Story?

Lately, I have really just been wanting to ask people one thing: What’s your story?

So why not?

What’s your story?

That might be a startling question, so let me give you a little background why I am asking it.

First, if you haven’t already, check out the video David (my husband) created for me as a way to explain why I write.

Second, take a look at yesterday’s blog post about identity. Our stories are not our identity, but they have molded us, shaped us, and given dimension to who we are.

Finally, I love people’s stories because I love the chance to get to know a person in their context. Our stories tell a lot about what is important to us, what drives us, and how we relate to the world around us. I love knowing people for more than where they work and how much education they have.

So tell me a story. Your story. You can leave a story in the comments below or you can go to my website and click on the Share Your Story link. Feel free to share your story anonymously or with your name.
