Our Story
We don’t all have the ability to tell a story that can gain the attention of the crowd. But, we all have stories to be told. Our most defining stories are, probably, going to be the ins and outs of everyday life. Those are the stories that define what is important to us. Sometimes, it seems that as we mature, our stories become more authentic and revealing about how we view ourselves and our life experiences. Because we might not be that rapt storyteller, we might hesitate telling our stories. That should not stop us. Our stories and life experiences are like an umbrella covering our past experiences that helps make sense of our present situation which can have an empowering influence over our future choices. If you need someone to talk to, please go to libertypark.org/biblical-counseling for help.
