Your Story Matters presents a dynamic and spiritually formative process for understanding and redeeming the past in order to live well in the present and into the future. Leslie Leyland Fields has used and taught this practical and inspiring writing process for decades, helping people from all walks of life to access memory and sift through the truth of their stories. This is not just a book for writers. Each one of us has a story, and understanding God’s work in our stories is a vital part of our faith. Through the spiritual practice of writing, we can “remember” his acts among us, “declare his glory among the nations,” and pass on to others what we have witnessed of God in this life: the mysterious, the tragic, the miraculous, the ordinary. With a companion video curriculum from RightNow Media, this is a “why not” book as opposed to a “how to” book. Leslie asks each of us an important question: “Why not learn to tell your story, in the context of the grander story of God?”

Each of our stories matter. Not just the good part of our story, not just the happy fairytale endings, but the good, the bad and the ugly! Why, you may ask, would the divorce you went through, the abortion you had, the abuse you endured or other life challenges matter? Because, life matters. Every bit of it is a learning opportunity. Learning from your story; Reveals your character (your strengths and weaknesses) Shows you what areas of your life you need healing in (grief, abuse, tragedies- unresolved emotions) Exposes your life purpose (patterns of things you do or often go back to that you enjoy and are good at, or feelings you have felt periodically about something that makes you feel alive and passionate) If we are not learning as we live life, what are we doing with the valuable wisdom that is available to us and that could also help others? How could this wisdom, based on my life experiences (my story) help me or others? The wisdom you have learned can help by; Providing encouragement and hope (for instance- we can endure, good things happen) Creating connections with others (we have compassion and empathy when we know each others 'real' story) We stop doing what's not working in our lives and do what will work to live a life of purpose, while setting the example for others to follow suit Angela Schaefers has compiled a book of reflective questions, like no other, that will help anyone to learn from their story! Within the pages of this book you will begin the journey of healing from your story, learning your life purpose from your story and discovering why your story matters!

Stories that Matter One Incredible God How could a pair of blue stilettos change someone else's story? Why would that story even matter? Everyone has a story.... the beautician at the beauty salon.... the homeless pregnant woman found sleeping in the park.... a pharmaceutical sales rep that appears as if her life is perfect.... the successful owner of a local waterline company.... or even a shallow-faced teen ravaged by the effects of drugs.... All of them have stories.... ....stories that matter. Inside this book there are countless real stories. Your faith will be encouraged as you read about how God speaks by sending butterflies after a night of sorrow, through catching fish, a timely delivery and the faith it took to build a ministry for those who didn't think their stories mattered. Join the courage of many that have found where their Hope Joy Peace and Freedom truly come from. After reading these amazing stories you will be encouraged and uplifted knowing that God hears and answers prayer. He desires to become the Author of your story as well ....because your story matters. Tammie Price is the founder and president of A Place for Us, Ministries Inc. After finding herself pregnant out of wedlock, married, and then going through a heart wrenching divorce, she never imagined her story would matter and could be used for good. When she found the "Lover of her soul" through a real relationship with Jesus Christ, it became the turning point in her life. He became her everything; He would heal her brokenness and call a community to join in her efforts to reach out to the broken. A Place for Us Ministries was founded in April 2001.

When we read a nonfiction text, what is the difference between one that keeps us interested and one that merely informs? Especially when the topic may be a bit, well, dry? The difference is narrative. The writer who threads a story throughout her text - using the tools of human connection, of narrative - is the writer who brings information to life. The argument she makes is compelling and real, because we care about the story within her story. This writer understands the power of narrative. In Story Matters, Liz Prather provides activities, lessons, exercises, mentor texts, and student samples to help teens learn to seamlessly weave narrative into their nonfiction writing. She provides concrete ideas for using the tools and techniques of narrative, including: - finding stories within any topic - using characters - creating tension - exploring structure - selecting details - crafting words and sentences. Give Liz's ideas a try and watch your students' writing rise to new levels. Because story matters.

Originally featured in a limited edition of Peter F. Hamilton's Mindstar Rising, Family Matters is a sci-fi detective short story starring Greg Mandel from his blockbuster trilogy. Richard Townsend would proudly call himself a man of business as he secures a lucrative, though not entirely legal, financial deal. What he believes to be easy money turns his life into a nightmare when detective Amanda Patterson knocks to his door to arrest him under suspicion of murdering local celebrity, Byrne Tayler. On the surface, all the clues seem to point to Richard. But Richard professes his innocence. Desperate to find out the truth, and driven by her remarkable instinct, Amanda seeks advice from an ex-Mindstar Brigade soldier Greg Mendel, in the hope that Greg's enhanced psychic abilities will help to reveal the truth about what really happened.

Much as Theodore Carter's title sea blob proves a challenge to classify, the other matters of importance in this, the author's debut, story collection emerge as equally amorphous and downright slippery when it comes to categorization. Yet, fleshy narrative makes indexing possible by way of a catalogue of characters who aren't simply arranged, but rarities that act-largely at great personal risk. From the competitive eater working against an internal clock to a disengaged young man beguiled by an animate voodoo doll, from a junior-high water-walker to an eyebrow arsonist, the affable oddities of The Life Story of a Chilean Sea Blob and Other Matters of Importance confront doubt in its multifarious forms, establishing classificationorganized into engaging, compelling, and affectingas tantamount to the anomalous lives we lead.
