Your Praying Friend is looking for inspirational stories to share with the world. Yours could be chosen as our next
Each of us have a life story filled with experiences that have cultivated us into the people we are today.
So what's your story?
What significant events have shaped you? What values define you?
What characteristics describe you and why?
What trials have you encountered and overcame?
What makes your story unique and inspirational?
Use your life lessons to encourage others!
We want to get to know you!
How Sharing Your Story is Beneficial to Both You and the Listener
We need to be heard
Sharing your story is therapeutic. There's a reason why support groups are so successful.
People have the desire to be heard and validated.
Sharing your story checks those boxes.
It reinforces that we are not alone, that someone cares, and that others can relate.
If you ever have thoughts of "no one wants to hear about my life" or "I don't have anything valuable to share" - That is simply untrue!
What you share may be life changing for the listener
That's no exaggeration. Just think about how you have been inspired by other's stories.
Whether it is something you watch on TV, a sermon about a story in the Bible, or someone who has personally taken the time to speak encouragement into your life through sharing their own life experience. We all have gained valuable insight from someone else's story.
Now is your opportunity to offer your unique knowledge gathered through your own life experience.
Stories that inspire
As I was driving to work today I was listening to a program called Focus on the Family airing on American Family Radio.
The host was interviewing a lady whose mother tried to abort her, but the abortion was unsuccessful.
As she shared her story I fought back the tears.
She told of the compassion that she had for her birthmother, who she learned was only 13 at the time of her pregnancy.
She shared about hearing her birthmother confess that she had attempted to abort her.
She was shocked to learn that she was a twin, but that the abortion successfully terminated the life of her sister.
She detailed the pain of processing not only was she not wanted, but she was desired dead.
She shared of how she had chosen forgiveness over resentment and how her faith in God guided her through this difficult discovery.
What an absolutely amazing story
Not all of us have a story that is so emotion provoking, but each of us have a story that is equally valuable.
What you have to say is exactly what someone else needs to hear!
