Tell His Story

Our words and stories hold power, ever since God first spoke these four: “Let there be light.”

Stories have been a Gospel-proven means by which we can understand one another – and by which we can understand ourselves.

We need your story.

That’s where #TellHisStory comes in.

You are the chroniclers, the people who help others make sense of the world with your words.

Story is how we know that, no matter what happens, we can get back up again.

About #TellHisStory:

Each Wednesday, shortly after midnight, I will post my contribution to the #TellHisStory writing project. At that time, I will open up the linky for you to add your own story. We can connect on Twitter with the #TellHisStory hashtag. Write whatever story God lays on your heart. Post an Instagram, and include the #TellHisStory link. What story has God been writing in or through your life, or through the lives of those around you?

There’s more to #TellHisStory:

Most weeks, at 9 p.m. on Tuesday nights, I will feature stories from other authors and writers. Sometimes, we’ll be giving away books.

Evere week, I will visit as many #TellHisStory posts as I can, and I will select one to feature over in my side under the headline “Featured #TellHis Story.” This isn’t a writing contest. I’m just eager to share and celebrate your stories with the community.

Now, there’s something else you need to know. This is a safe place to tell your stories. You don’t have to be a professional writer or a grammarian to join us. Story is built into every single one of us. Your story matters, because it’s part of God’s story down through history, not because you punctuated everything correctly. Deal?

To participate, simply:

1. Write your #TellHisStory post, from your heart, straight onto your blog.

2. Link up, and invite friends to join in by posting the #TellHisStory badge on your post.

3. Copy and paste the permalink to your post.

4. Using the linky tool, enter your link.

5. Find someone (or two) in the link-up to encourage with a comment. Link their post on Twitter with the hashtag #TellHisStory.

Your words matter to God. They matter to people. And they matter to me!

A Dare that Might Just Change Us — #The Happiness Dare #TellHisStory

happinessdare

Today is my birthday. My family says it’s actually my birth-month. I won’t lie: I know how to drag a party out. I think that one of the reasons I love my birthday so much, is because it gives me a reason to celebrate during a time of year that can feel heavy. By now, a lot of us ...

and the winner “actually” is … — #TellHisStory

mistake, Steve Harvey, Miss Universe

One of the biggest mistakes we can ever make is not admitting when we’ve made one. That’s what I was thinking this morning, as I watched news reports of last night’s Miss Universe pageant. Steve Harvey, the pageant’s host, had named Miss Colombia as the new Miss ...

A Very Mary Christmas — #TellHisStory

Come Let Us Adore Him

Feet dangling in patent-leather, I sat on the polished pew while the Christmas pageant director assigned parts. I held my breath, waiting as she called names. I dreaded this moment, for I knew I’d be instructed to serve as a sheep or cow. Each year, the director would assure us that those ...

what we all need to know when we want to give up – #TellHisStory

what we all need to know when we want to give up - #TellHisStory

We waited, with hearts pumping in anticipation at the starting line. Then, the sound of a cannon boomed through the cloudless sky. It was our signal to start. And we were off, feet pounding across the grass as music blasted through the speakers.  Anna and I joined hundreds of other girls ...
