- 1979- born
- 1997- graduated high school
- 2001- graduated college
- 2003- got married
- 2007- graduated seminary
All those events are true, but my story is much more than the facts on my timeline. The good stories include:
- 1986- Realized I was the only one still wearing colored socks.
- 1994- Decided if I ever had a daughter, I would name her Anna.
- 2002- Drove from Bakersfield, California to Wake Forest, North Carolina.
Even those snippets don’t tell you the whole story. Where was I when I realized I was the only one wearing colored socks? Why did I pick Anna? Who was on that cross-country road trip with me?
This week we’ll be talking about our stories: why they are so important, what they should include, what makes them good, and how to communicate them clearly. We’re all story tellers and our stories have power to influence others.
If your story includes more than just what’s on your Facebook timeline, join me this week!
