Tuesday Tidbit: “Signposts on the way to God”

Here is today’s 15 seconds of inspiration,
your Tuesday Tidbit:

Are you a parent, friend, teacher, pastor, spouse, son, or daughter?

If so, take these words to heart:

“How do we know about God’s love,
God’s generosity,
God’s kindness,
God’s forgiveness?
Through our parents,
our friends,
our teachers,
our pastors,
our spouses,
our children—
they all reveal God to us.…
Gradually we discover that
they were all signposts on the way to God.”
 (Henri Nouwen’s “Signposts on the Way to God,”
May 4 selection from Bread for the Journey)

Your stories are powerful. Through your stories, you can reveal God to your readers—His love, generosity, kindness, and forgiveness.

Your memoir could be a “signpost on the way to God” for your readers.

Be inspired to write—and finish—your memoir, and place it into the hands of your kids, grandkids, great-grands, and others: friends, relatives, colleagues. Maybe you’ll even publish it for a wider audience.

Never doubt the power of your stories.
Set aside time to write them.
