I knew from childhood that I wanted to be a writer. I was enthralled with story–whether it was the stories I heard sitting around my grandmother’s kitchen table in her two-room cabin along the White River in Southern Indiana or the stories I read curled up in a hammock on a hot summer’s day in Upstate New York.
Yet, when I was told by my high-school guidance counselor, I’d never be a writer, I tucked my love of words away–until they could be held back no more. Today, not only do I write my own stories, I help others share their messages with the world.
We all have stories enriched with life’s triumphs and challenges that when woven together form our legacy and transform our lives, our families, our community, and our world.
So if you’ve always wanted to write, but pushed away the desire out of fear or because you bought into someone else’s story about you–that your life, your story, doesn’t matter, schedule time with me to explore possibilities.
