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!

~Jennifer

He just wanted to walk again. That’s been his prayer for months now. If all went as planned, Dad would finally get to stand upright again. He texted me from the the passenger seat of his car, while Mom drove. They were on their way to Mayo Clinic to meet with Dad’s prosthetic team. ...

We All Just Needed Someone to Love, So God Made a Family

We All Just Needed Someone to Love, So God Made a Family

And on the 8th day, God looked down on the good earth he made and said, “I need people to love and care for each other.” So, God made a family. God said “I need a lot of somebodies to show the world what it means to weave hearts, to shape souls, and to stubbornly stick […]

Six Words That Can Make ALL The Difference

Six Words That Can Make ALL The Difference

I don’t talk about the devil much. I hate to give him too much press or too much credit. But some days, there’s no way around it. He’s got to be called out for who he is: liar, liar, pants on fire.  Today is one of those days. Today is a day when I might be tempted to believe […]

How to Start a Chain Reaction of Good Habits

How to Start a Chain Reaction of Good Habits

I have an on-again, off-again relationship with exercise. Mostly, I exercise to support my taco habit. And when I do exercise, I expect the results to be instant and spectacular. So naturally, I have a lot of unrealistic expectations regarding exercise. Last winter, I suspended my exercise ...

Will You Pray This Prayer With Me?

Will You Pray This Prayer With Me?

Dear God, The sun came out for the first time in days, and to me, it looked as if You poured a layer of gold atop everything. I stood for a moment on the back deck, face tipped toward the sky. I closed my eyes and felt the gentle weight of heaven-shine. In a moment […]
