Do you recognize the opportunity you have—as well as the responsibility—to write your stories? Right now, you probably can’t imagine how God can use them to bless your readers—your kids, grandkids, and great-grands.
Your stories are important. Writing them is more than a hobby—it is a ministry.
Do you recall our verse?
“Always remember what you’ve seen God do for you,
and be sure to tell your children and grandchildren!”
You and I are just ordinary people living ordinary lives, yet God is acting on our behalf every moment of every day.
Take time to observe what He is doing.
Notice the ways Bible passages come alive—how they come true, how they are relevant—in your family.
If you’ll put those stories into writing, you’ll be doing what Deuteronomy 4:9 urges all of us to do.
You have stories only you can tell.
You are part of a story much bigger than yourself.
Your story is part of God’s story
and God’s story is part of your story.
Invest time and effort into connecting your stories with God’s stories.
Don’t keep them to yourself—give them to others to read!
