Challenge: Share a Story You Don’t Want to Tell

After I graduated from college, I traveled for a year and then took a job at a nonprofit. As a staff writer, my job was to train missionaries to blog and help them share their stories with the world.

Every day, I would read inspiring tales of how other people were changing the world, and they would inspire and frustrate me. I realized it wasn’t enough to tell someone else’s story. I had to start living a remarkable one myself.

My personal turning point

As I shared in an earlier post, I stopped believing the stories I was telling, and this really bothered me. Something had to change.

So I began doing something different: I started hanging out with homeless people as often as possible. I cooked hotdogs for them on Saturday mornings and brought blankets on Friday nights. I listened to their stories and had the privilege of playing a part in some of them.

This changed me.

I found what I had always been searching for: meaning, purpose, and satisfaction — and in the most unlikely of places. I began to come alive and see the world differently. And I was not alone.

Where we find purpose

Turns out, this is where we often find our purpose in life. Not in the easy, but in the hard. In the difficult things that test our resolve and turn our worlds upside-down.

Life, it seems, is not about creating a purpose for yourself; it’s about finding one that’s already there.

The more I share this, the more I find others who have had similar instances of awakening.

It doesn’t matter who they are or what they do. Everywhere, there are doctors and lawyers, engineers and teachers, actors and and handymen — all discovering a call to a more meaningful life through the realization that life is not about them.

Will you be brave?

This is difficult to talk about; these are the stories we don’t want to share. They’re the ones about a car accident or death in the family, a tough bout of unemployment or unexpected loss that sent you searching for meaning — and eventually finding it.

We don’t want to go “back there,” don’t want to relive the pain. It’s just too difficult. But this is where healing and hope are found, where we find ourselves connecting to a greater narrative — in our stories.

So what does this mean for you? Well, if you can relate to this feeling, I want you to do something courageous: Tell your story. Even if you’re scared, even if you don’t want to. Do it anyway, because people need to hear it.

This is what my upcoming book, Wrecked, is about — the tough moments that shape us, the ones where you realize you’re a part of something bigger than yourself.

An invitation to share your story

In preparation for the launch of my book (which is Aug. 1, 2012), I’m inviting people to share their stories of how they got wrecked — how a broken world slammed into their comfortable lives.

Typically, these moments are unexpected. They’re unwelcome but good, ruining your small way of looking at the world and replacing it with something better.

We already have a few stories that have come in — one of a parent who lost a child to cancer, another of a man who experienced real need (and the opportunity to meet it) for the first time in Haiti — and more come in every day.

If you have had a similar experience, one that left you feeling wrecked but ultimately made you a better person, tell us about it.

Have you ever had your world turned upside-down? Share in the comments. And find out more about how you can tell your story here.

  • My story is still very much in progress. But prompted by this post, I decided to put in writing a few things I’ve learned about surviving unemployment which would hopefully help other people 
    https://www.joannamuses.com/2012/07/assorted-thoughts-on-surviving.html

    • Loved your post Joanna, thanks for writing it. I’m not technically unemployed (have a part-time job, but off for the summer), but I’m looking for full-time work related to what I studied (counseling). My main frustration has been that I spent the last 4 years going to graduate school and I feel like I’m paying a price for it now because, although I have a Master’s degree, I missed out on 4 years of real work experience. That seems to be what employers want now-a-days more than a degree. At least that’s what I’m finding. I also am looking to relocate, and as soon as an employer sees that I’m a remote applicant, I’m sure they pass me by. 🙁 But anyway, I loved your suggestions, especially the one about asking others to pray for you. I hadn’t even thought of that! Good luck to you and may God bring the perfect job your way soon. 🙂

      • Glad you liked it 🙂 I definitely understand the frustration of working so hard on a degree but as a result being disadvantaged by the lack of experience. Sometimes you just have to make the best of it by emphasizing the ways your degree was experience, both in learning subject specific knowledge and more general valuable skills (time management, teamwork from group projects, organisational skills ect.)

  • My turning point moment wasn’t about being wrecked. For years I thought I’d blown it as a Christian – then I had an amazing experience of just knowing that God accepts me as I am, and I haven’t looked back since. You can read about it here: https://delemares.wordpress.com/2012/07/14/my-story-6-the-turning-point/
    I’m telling my story in episodes on my blog.
    This is not to say I haven’t had wrecked moments – often when I was nursing. Realising the power of something very simple on my part being very meaningful for someone else. I find it very humbling.
    btw – ‘Wrecked’ is a great book.

    Hi Jeff, thank you for bringing this up:)

    I’m almost finished writing my story in my soon to be published book, A Return to My Soul. Very simply, it’s an autobiography about hell and enlightenment. When I wrote the first draft, I didn’t want to say so much about the pain, and I wrote about it superficially – it was my experience of enlightenment that I wanted to share, but following a comment by my editor, I wrote openly and freely about the pain. It felt very good afterwards, and now I have no trouble standing tall and saying publicly, “this is my story”. It’s also been very good to write about the pain because I’ve cried a lot while writing about it, and that’s helped a lot too. All in all, I’m very grateful:)

    Yes, many times over and then some. I shared one story out of many stories and had great difficulty doing so. My husband, the editor ha ha, read it and said, this sounds like a report. He tells me, you are holding back. He was really disappointed. I deleted my story. He tells me, write it again. I tell him, I am not in the mood. You rejected what I wrote the first time. My husband is tough, he wouldn’t let me get away with it. He tells me let it go, get descriptive. I tell him, I can’t get too descriptive in 300 words, I am not that gifted. I was just giving him a hard time. I was experiencing resistance. I wrote it again. My husband gave his stamp of approval. I still thought it was crap. But I pushed through the resistance and posted it anyway. I realize some things I’d rather not write about.

  • Our continuing journey through adoption and foster care has brough us to many mountain tops and many valleys.  This is one of the valleys that God is still transforming into a strength for our family.  https://joshua-asforme.blogspot.com/2012/03/empty-bowls.html

  • I’ve been wrecked a few times over the years, but the one that’s wrecking us right now is a family in our church who lost their 3-year-old adopted daughter a few months ago.  I blogged today about the project we’re leading to try to restore hope and healing to their world: https://riverofthoughts.com/missions/extreme-home-makeover-pathway-style/

  • Look forward to hearing people’s stories! 

  • I’m a real hard case. I get wrecked on a regular basis. But everytime, I’m transformed more and more. Hope beyond belief!

  • Dick Savidge

    Jeff, Great blog, thank you.  I have come to realize that my failures define me more than my successes.  As I allow God to use my ‘wrecks’ to mold me into a new person, transformation takes place.  My resume talks of my successes.  What I bring to the table are my failures that have been transformed and redeemed by His grace.  For ALL that has been, I start to say…..Thank You!

  • Your job at the nonprofit sounds like a lot of fun but I’m sure it would get frustrating, just like it did. Great job making a less than ideal situation into something remarkable. You inspire us all to do the same.

  • Thanks Jeff. I can’t help but make the connection to the “All is Lost Moment” / Turning Pro moment that Steven Pressfield is writing about on his blog today too. I think you bring up another great point within this post: 

    We are afraid of sharing in other people’s stories. We are afraid of compassion. 

    At least I know I am. As spiritual/religious I may be, helping the homeless is scary. Mission trips are scary. Writing is scary. Helping others is scary. Standing up for a marriage is scary. Having children is scary. Leaving a job is scary. 

    And, you know…if they weren’t scary they wouldn’t be worth doing. 

    Thanks for your witness. 

  • Jeff, I tried to follow your link to where to share our stories, but it looks like you have to have a WordPress account to do so.  Is there another way to submit a story to you?

  • I had a hell of a year in 2010.  At the end of it, recovering from surgery, I wrote about having a new love for the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life. ”  Below is what I wrote.

    It’s a Wonderful Life

    Well, goodbye to 2010.  It was a long, rough year.  I said goodbye to
    two wonderful people and endured a tough surgery, amid several other
    more mundane happenings, too boring to mention here, which were just
    made more difficult because of those bigger things.  Yet, hope is
    tenacious.  It’s still a wonderful life.  George Bailey reminded me of
    that last week.

    I bought that classic film, It’s a Wonderful Life, online this
    season and it arrived just in time – on Christmas Eve.  The first time I
    saw that film I was in my late teens, and I didn’t like it.  Who the
    heck was this George Bailey and what was up with that silly little angel
    named Clarence?   I caught bits and pieces of it on TV as I helped my
    family decorate the Christmas tree, wondering Geez, a story about
    some depressed guy who didn’t want to live is a classic Christmas
    movie?  What gives?  Where’s Santa?  Where’s Charlie Brown?  I
    felt quietly embarrassed as I watched this man fall apart onscreen, and
    also again as I witnessed his joy restored at the end of the story.   Hokey,
    I thought.   It just didn’t fit in with my idea of Christmas.  I wanted
    a perfect Christmas, with a pretty tree, pretty presents, and a pretty
    … ahem … a handsome boyfriend to kiss under the mistletoe.  I was
    going to have a wonderful life, and, in my mind, it had no resemblance
    to George Bailey’s.

    Well, as anyone who lives long enough knows, we can’t always get what we
    want.   George wanted to travel the world; he didn’t want to stay in
    Bedford Falls.  But, through no fault of his own, he stayed there and
    was eventually driven to deep despair.

    The exuberance of youthful dreams gets tempered by what life hands us.  As my little girl started saying years ago, that’s just the way life is. 
     We don’t get to choose the tragedies that happen to us.  Except if we
    take our own life, which is the only choice that George thought he could
    bear.  Until, that is, his angel appeared and took him on a wild ride
    to show him what life would have been like if he had never been
    born.  That was quite a Christmas gift.  A messy one that can’t be
    wrapped and put under a tree, but I’d take it.  And I do now, without
    embarrassment, every time I watch the miracle of George eventually
    realizing the worth of his own life, as he cries out to Clarence, I want to live….I want to live…..  

    A story of struggle, dashed hopes, despair, and then joy, found in a new perspective. It fit my Christmas perfectly.

  • Great blog post…your words are so true.  I’m actually in the process of writing a book myself, based on my turning point.  Mine was back in 2003 when I went through three miscarriages in one year.  Since then, we’ve had three daughters, but two of those pregnancies were rough and two of our daughters had to spend time in the NICU.  During the time of growing our family, my  husband had a brain tumor, benign, thank God!  Then he lost his job (our only income), and we had to end up relocating to a different state when he found another job.  It’s been a time of going through the fire, but each of these things has brought such growth, renewed faith and trust in God, and have been blessings in disguise.  There’s something about that place where faith and fear collide…when you’re wrecked…  you change and realize it’s not about you.  I’ve been able to turn around and help many other women suffering loss.  I look forward to reading your book.  Thank you!

  • This is so true, Jeff. Especially the part about find a purpose that already exists. I think we spend so much time judging our story, wishing it were different, or trying to change it that we miss the most powerful parts of it. I’ve found that when you look at your story with objective eyes, you can see the evolution of your purpose, and like you said it’s almost never about you, and almost always about something bigger than yourself. I think that’s what make telling our story so scary. It’s not just about the contents of the story, but about what the truth it reveals means for us too. 

    • Blessed576

        I think that for people who feel broken no matter what you do you are never good enough in your own eyes, but you have to over look the crappy ness of
      the world and stop and look all the simple beauty around

  • PennyofaThought

    I just wrote about part of my story for Relevant Magazine. And you’re right, it’s been in admitting my brokenness that I began to find healing and was able to help others find healing as well. https://www.relevantmagazine.com/god/practical-faith/confessions-ministry-snob

  • Yi Lin

    Greetings all the way from Singapore. I blog about infertility and our IVF journey on a public parenting website. I deviated from telling our infertility story when we conceived our daughter and started talking about all things baby. Since then, I’ve been feeling that my writing has lost some of its meaning and soul. Coincidentally, I chanced upon your writing recently, which prompted me to write again about our IVF attempt – now for our second child – and it feels so… right. We have just been asked to appear on national TV. It’s scary and I almost turned down the invitation to share our story, but I decided to suck it up and accept the challenge to tell it – even if I don’t really want to, in hope that it will help other people in their journey to parenthood. https://www.maybebaby.sg/blog/author/yilin/

  • This sounds a lot like my best friend after he broke up with his longtime girlfriend. He befriended the homeless in his town, and one of the greatest tragedies in his life turned into one of the most influential moments for the better.

  • WOW.  How funny it is that you posted this today, when yesterday I came clean on my blog on how hard the past year has been for us. 
    A year ago, my husband and I came out about our marriage almost falling apart, you can read about it here:   http://www.mikeandlesleyglenn.org/about-us/about/  and then yesterday,  I had another coming out on our blog with this post: https://wp.me/p22C0L-6W.  I was challenged actually to write it by one of your intentional blogging lessons.  So thank you.

  • Kristin

    After raising two wonderful sons, the first one became a prodigal.  This turned our world upside down.  The Lord healed us who were left behind and He led me to start a blanket ministry for the homeless.  These people captured my heart and I am now writing a book, telling their stories.  This led me to being in the newspaper 4 times and being interviewed on our Christian Radio.  This ministry is getting ready to start it’s 4th year and I’m lovin’ it!

  • Jeff, I think my story is more like being wrecked slowly, over a period of time :).

    I have some small high moments, but looking back, it’s been more of a process than one single encounter.

    The moment I thought I was ruined/wrecked for life, God asked for more, including giving up my presumably wrecked plans.

    Wrote a post about it yesterday “When God wrecks our plans” after reading your book reviews.

  • I’ve written my memoir and am in the process of getting it published. There are definitely parts of the story I’ve left out because I’m simply not ready to lay it all out there and share the story that scares me! 

    • if it scares you a little, it means you’re being brave. well done. 🙂

  • Mary Jeffries McCauley

    Forty four years ago today at approximatly 6 pm my daddy died.  I was 17 years old at the time.  It was like the center of my wheel fell out.  It took years for me to realize God had a reason for this and accept it was not because I had not prayed hard enough or been good enough.  The experience left me very angry at God.  It started me down a bad path.  But by God’s grace and forgiveness I just finished 10 years as a lay-pastor.  My faith is strong.  I have learned God is good ALL the time, even when I don’t see it.  I have learned to trust in God in all things….welll most of the time anyway..
    I am working on writing my story.  Thanks to you Jeff I am a writer who is looking forward to what God has for me to do with this life I still have.

  • T.C. McMullen

    My story – quite a few, but  I left them in the past, in some distant time that I do not visit because I don’t need to give it attention any more. I can’t say the same about the current ongoing things though. https://adaptingtochangedworld.blogspot.com/2012/07/finding-your-way.html

  • It’s taken 5 years, but I finally got the courage to face the darkest period of my life: 

    The death of our youngest son, loss of our livelihood and home and finally – the rebuilding.
      
    My story is currently featured here: https://idahowomensjournal.com/2012/06/19/phoenix-rising-mullani-june-focus-story/

    Thank you Jeff, for encouraging us all to tell our story. 

    A lot of healing takes place through this process!

  • Laura Mc Coy

    The list of “problems” have me counting my blessings. 
    I am a work in progress and not there yet! 
    Everyone lets keep growing! lmc 

  • This is exactly why I wrote my story. Going back THERE, to the hard place, helped me untangle some of the knots that formed in my heart from getting wrecked by the tragedy in the first place. It taught me that God’s grace is solid, even when I am not.

    My story is free through tomorrow at this link: Amazon.com: Weak and Loved eBook:

    • thanks, Emily, but your link didn’t come throuhg. what’s the URL?

    • and is a fabulous book, though really hard to read as another seizure mom, I highly recommend it, and yes, it brings you to those hard places.

  • I complained for almost two years to my doctor that something was wrong. My bones hurt, my stomach hurt, my mood sucked–and he finally told me that I needed an anti-depressant to deal with two kids under the age of 2 at home.

    Thankfully, a second doctor saw the symptoms for more.

    But as I waited for surgery I wondered about the quality of my life and what I would have left for my children and husband. The tumor turned out to be much larger than originally thought and thus, the damage to my bones and kidneys real.

    Now, I live knowing that my days will not be the same as other women in their 30s.

    After a bout of a pity party and tears I realize that I am actually in a good place; it is good to be wrecked.

    Being wrecked means that I honor and cherish moments with my kids and my life as it is now.

    • man, this is tough. thanks for having the courage to share, Erika.

  • I do have a story Jeff, but I’ve had trouble logging in as a guest. Wish there were another way to get it to you. Anyhow, here’s how it begins…

    ***

    When, for a moment in
    time, I left the comfort and security of stained glass and steeples and places
    where people sit in their comfy pews and relax, oblivious to the suffering of
    some… when I visited this other place with a journalistic eye and saw for
    myself how the other side lives…

    Come with me to the
    site where my friend Krystal started a mission in a coin-operated laundry at
    Camper’s Lodge. She was inspired to establish a church for drunks and junkies
    because her sister lives there among them – and in trying to help her own
    sister, she hopes to help all the outcasts. 
       

    Krystal visits the
    addicts and cooks breakfast for them on Sunday mornings before the
    service.  If you’d like to pay them a
    visit there too, I’ll show you the way… 
    This is how it begins…

  • Sue Wang

    Thank you for inspiring us to share our stories. I am writing a memoir on healing something very odd -Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.  I woke up on day dizzy and nauseated, and it went down hill from there. My world HAD to change.  How I lived and loved had to change. 4 years prior to that, the beginning of my story had begun (unbeknownst to me), with a tragic loss of a newborn to forceps.  

    How I healed? Connecting the mind and body, facing my traumas/demons -I had nothing more to lose, and my life is better because of what happened.  I share this to inspire others to look at diseases and wellness differently, to take control of their lives and heal.  The world needs a lot of healing.

    • Sue Wang

      I see that people are sharing links: http://www.sueywang.com, the book is called Messages from the Black Recliner (see its Page).

  • OK Goins. You got me going. I hadn’t touched my book project in months. No good reason. Just total paralysis. I suppose I should thank you, Lord knows you deserve it. So, thanks. And I am back to writing! The submission is called The Way, and yes, it’s WAY over 600 words. It’s the first chapter. I can skinny it down if it makes it through your filter, or I can leave it as is. ‘Nuff said…

  • It’s hard to share the raw parts of our stories…for myself that’s when real healing begins:) Our story includes a house fire and then a few years later living month to month literally by miracles until we lived in our van(with our family of 6) for a few weeks. We’ve given in different ways to the homeless since then. I think our hearts were opened and God filled them with more of His compassion…:)  Thanks for being real Jeff!

  • I got depressed when I had to give up a church planting activity. I worked so hard and gave myself off but we were going nowhere. The people I took care of spiritually and some physically, did not want to cooperate anymore and so my strength was just sucked up. I talked to my superiors and told them I did not want to continue anymore. Until now I still feel frustrated and sad just thinking about it. Until now I’m still asking God what I have to do with this story.

    I’m writing down my own life story (I’m only 27 so it isn’t that long) and it has been a wonderfully freeing experience. I feel that much that I will write in the future will spring from this endeavor. Here is just one life experience of dealing with anxiety and panic attacks…

    In 2009 I had single car accident in my Jeep that showed me
    what a fragile state I was in and still am. It had been raining the roads where
    slick and I was driving too fast for the conditions. I began fish-tailing when
    I hit a curve and my back tires lost the grip of the road and I
    spun off and landed in a muddy ditch. At the moment of the accident I handled
    everything very well with the aid of a Good Samaritan. Later I would find out
    that I had injured my rib due to the pressure of the seat-belt and it did not
    heal for a year- but that pales in comparison to how the accident affected my
    metal well being. It was if I had entered the so called fight-or-flight mode and
    I could not come out of it even though the threat was passed. I was on high
    alert and was jumping at my own shadow. I was in a terrible state of mind- on
    the verge of panic constantly. My doctor proscribed Prozac (in addition to my regular medication for anxiety) and it seemed to
    help get me over my panic- for a time. The drug then began having adverse
    affects on me and as I look back I can tell that I was on the verge of deep depression
    which nearly ruined the relationship with my sister-in-law due to something
    coming up which was brought about by merely a case of miscommunication. I had
    accidently missed a couple of doses of the Prozac and I suddenly realized that
    my mood had changed. I winged myself off the Prozac as quickly and safely as I
    could and went back to my regular medication. The Prozac did help me get over
    my panic brought upon by the accident, but I will never touch it again. My life long experience of dealing with anxiety has already helped me reach out to others with similar invisible difficulties. It has defined my life in very good ways though I still struggle daily.

    It was supposed to be the most romantic day of the year- the one where your parents buy you chocolates, your friends all rush to hug you in the morning, and even though it’s freezing cold outside, your entire body is flushed with heat. The day when you find out you have a secret, or maybe not-so-secret admirer and they confess their undying love for you. But for me, I spent that day avoiding people. I was a quiet student. I had friends, but they weren’t the mushy type that had sleepovers together or really shared personal details, so I never told anyone about my day. When I got home from school, I had a message from my ex-boyfriend asking me to talk. We hadn’t dated in a year a half and our relationship had only lasted for about 4 months, but I still hadn’t completely lost touch with how much I cared about him. I deeply wanted him to be happy in life, and I knew he had been going through a rough patch in school, because he was sent to our alternative campus. And after I agreed to meet with him that evening at Starbucks and talk, I realized that there was so much more to him than I could have ever imagined and our past finally started making sense to me. I found out that had a less serious form of schizophrenia, that he had tried to kill himself before, that voices would pop up out of the blue and make dangerous situations come alive with opportunities for him to end his life then and there. At first, I didn’t really process the information, it seemed like a movie playing in my head and I wasn’t there, that I wasn’t a part of it, but after a few hours it started to sink in. I offered for him to ride with me to the river in town, so we could sit outside alone rather than with people surrounding us. And he willingly accepted the offer since he didn’t have a driver’s license (he was afraid that if he could drive, he would have even more voices, so he opted out). And walking by the river, as I drilled him with tons of questions about what they were like, and if they were voices he had heard before or voices he created. Did it sound like they were commanding him, or just suggesting things? Was it like is train of thoughts, but out loud and incessant? I was desperately curious to dig my way inside and understand, but he invited me in the second he grabbed my hand and put it in his jacket pocket just like he had done on our very first date.

    I already had that all typed up to save for a later date, and I guess today was the day to share it. I feel kind of weird that I think my story is more about him, but when you love someone so much that they become a part of you, it is sometimes hard to tell the difference. And this is one of the only stories that define my life that not many people know about me. Looking back on that day, I remember going to bed that night and praying for him. It was the first time in my life that I prayed for what seemed like hours in darkness and never once thought about what I wanted or needed. And it made me think about how selfish I have been to pray for myself when so many people have bigger things to worry about. I began to consider that there could be any number of people that I am close to that don’t have the guts to share their problems and ask for help, and I am so grateful that he did because he inspired me to be brave too!

    Jeff, I’m enjoying your writing and learning from you.  Here is the challenge – a chapter of my story where I learned about 

    The
    Gift of Grace

     

                When
    the court called to ask if I’d be guardian for my mother, I wanted to shout,
    “NO!” but I knew there was no one else. 
    Mother’s illness developed into a difficult personality who alienated
    most family members as well as many from her community.  We had no ground to build on, but I
    knew the scriptures said to honor your parents. I was duty bound. Stuck.
    Trapped. And so I sighed, and whimpered, yes, I would be her guardian.  Obedient, but reluctant and fearful, I
    did as instructed to renew contact.

    Prior
    attempts to survey Mom’s health and living conditions were met with anger,
    weapons, and hurtful words, and I will not deny the emotional storm that rode
    into town with me (and my accompanying granddaughter) when I answered the call
    of the court. That day God instructed me to love her without words, and my animated
    eighteen-year-old Aimee made it possible. Her chatting allowed me to
    concentrate while driving Mom to see her sister, the family farm, and the homes
    and schools where she had experienced good memories. Mom loved eating and
    enjoyed being served at Four Seasons, a fancy resort built on Miscuano Island.
    Knowing she would (like me) want several things on the menu, we prearranged for
    the waitress to wrap several choices she wanted but did not order.

    The end of
    that day was really a new beginning. 
    Before I left, Mom asked me to help her remove her shoes. I knelt before
    her, and she touched my head like a benediction, surprised that her little girl
    had silver in her hair.

    Seeing God
    honor Mom through my silence that day confirmed that she needed nothing from me
    but to be a carrier of God’s grace, to share the extravagant love that I’d
    experienced. Suddenly it seemed so obvious – how could I give any less than I’d
    been given?

    Finally
    freed from the insidious trappings of guilt, bitterness and responsibility, I
    changed from taking care of her (act
    of blind obedience – have to do it) to giving
    care (act of choice – blessed to do it) and new life was breathed into our
    relationship.

    When I read
    the original meaning of grace: – to indue with special honor – I had a new
    incentive.  An idea and an urgency
    rose up to plan Mom’s coming birthday as a way to honor her.  Mom often mentioned she wished she had
    written a book of her life story.  Never
    Too Late was the appropriate name of a senior wish program that enabled the
    raising up of Mom’s memories for a special gift.  They helped obtain a young English teacher from a nearby
    college to interview Mom and record stories from her life in her own words.  Months later Erin emailed me the narratives
    to combine with old photos and recipes. The result was a giant size memory book
    in her favorite pastel pink, which was completed in time for her big day. When
    I read the story about how Mom had entertained seniors years ago in the very
    place that was now her home, I recalled some letters stuffed in a scrapbook. Sure
    enough one detailed her pride to participate in the Senior Follies and included
    the name of the fellow who began the events! Through Internet I was able to
    locate him and he provided a video of Mom singing and tap dancing for the “old
    folks” when she was in her 70s! 
    Our son helped transfer that into DVDs – one of the entire program, and
    one containing only Mom’s solo that she could watch anytime she needed a
    reminder that it really happened. 

    Knowing Mom
    was proud to be politically involved, current and past Presidents and her
    state’s governor were contacted for birthday wishes.  All seven sent cards or autographed photos which she displayed
    and bragged on to any one who would listen.

    On her
    birthday, she proudly wore purple with a matching corsage and sat among family
    and friends, as well as staff and residents of her home care. Each person who
    greeted her added a flower to the growing bouquet.  Her face lit up, eyes aglow at the giant pink memory book, proudly
    confirming the stories as they were read back to her.  At 93 she’d already forgotten sharing them and wondered how
    the reader knew Mother had learned to bake at 9 and carried lunch to school in
    Karo Syrup pails. Tears of happiness came when everyone applauded while
    watching her Follies singing and dancing. 
    “See,” she said, “I did something good for others.”

    Hours later
    after the last guest wished her a “Happy Birthday,” I brought her to her room for
    lunch. “I don’t think I can eat a bite,” she said, “I’m already filled up –
    filled up to the top with happiness.”   “Me too, Mom,” I croaked, surprised with the joy of the
    moment.

    I hadn’t
    known – you cannot give the gift of grace without receiving it 

    right back.

    right back.

  • Here’s the thing. So many of our stories were at one time secrets. I know mine were. My secrets fed a deep seeded shame, watered by the lie that I could never tell. What if people knew… what would they think of me? During a season of deep depression, God told me that I would be telling my story someday. He told me where (in church) and to whom (my Sunday school class.) I scoffed. No way.

    And then He pulled me out of that deep depression, set me on solid ground, and let me rest. And then he told me to tell. And because of all He’d already done for me, I did.

    No major surgery, no chemotherapy or drug could heal the way that 45 minutes did. I stood in front of my friends and told them the truth about me. And guess what? They love me anyway. And in the next few weeks, some of them stood up to share their own stories.

    So I believe in telling our own stories, for our own healing, for the edification of the church, and ultimately to bring glory to God.  Rev. 12:11 says: “And they have conquered him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.”

    • Lori Buckle

       Amen!  Here’s my story of a secret I am only slowly beginning to tell.

      My husband is English, and so we lived in England for a few years.  Then we felt called to move back to the States, so we sold up everything and did just that.  Problem was, life is not that easy for my husband.  He is bipolar, and had been taking meds for years to control it.  A few years before this, some well-meant soul in a church hubby was attending “prophesied” that he would be miraculously healed.  Fast forward to our move.  We were going to be starting a new life in the States, called there by God, so maybe this was finally the time that He would heal my husband, right?

      So we land in the States and go our merry.  For several months, everything was fine, so it seemed to confirm that hubby was healed.  Then everything went “pear-shaped,” as the British say.  Hubby started having seizures, and the doctors couldn’t explain it.  That was frightening enough, but then hubby had a  complete breakdown. One day while I was at work he simply disappeared.  When my parents (with whom we lived at the time) and myself all got home, there was no sign of him.  For the next several hours, we tried to call him on his cell phone.  When he he would answer, he would sound confused.  Finally, he somehow managed to wander home. In retrospect, we should have taken him to the hospital then, but we didn’t.

      The next day he had a complete psychotic breakdown.  He shut himself in our bedroom and refused to let my father or myself go near him.  For whatever strange reason, he would only respond to my mother, so she managed to coax him out and take him to the hospital.  They got him stabilized and, after a court hearing, he was shipped off to the state mental hospital.  They got him onto the appropriate meds and eventually he was able to come home. 

      Today we’re doing just fine.  Hubby sees a great doctor who keeps him on the right meds, so he’s  able to hold down a good job.  Back then, however, my agony over my husband’s illness was compounded by the feeling that I couldn’t tell anyone.  What was I supposed to say?  “My husband is a nut who got hauled off to the loony bin?”  I was terrified of the stigma that would be attached to us.  I remember quite distinctly crying in our church’s prayer chapel with only my mother for comfort, because I couldn’t bring myself to tell anybody else.

      I’ve told people bit and pieces of this recently, but this is the first time I’ve told anybody the full story of what happened and how I felt.  Thank you, Jeff, for this opportunity to maybe find some healing.

      • Diane S

        Feelings of shame (and the guilt over having them) are sometimes the hardest things to bear.  Do not feel this over your husband’s illness.  That is all it is.  And don’t listen to humans trying to predict the future.  I think even the Bible warns against those.  Even so, I know I have my own “looking for signs” and Superstitious Things We All Scoff at are still pretty much our wondering if maybe it’s really “G-d” talking to us and we’re too stubborn to listen, but sometimes it is better to listen to your heart and do what is right for the people who love you and who you love.  Sometimes you also have to do what’s right for you, too.

    • Diane S

      How did G-d tell you?  What was the truth that you shared with your sunday school class?

  • Watching a friend have a similar reaction to her child’s illness as I did to mine convinced me that I needed to share my story in hopes that no one ever has to feel that alone. It’s a painful thing to admit I wished my child had died. https://alise-write.com/?s=God%27s+masterpiece

    • Shannon Coe

      That was a beautiful, heart moving post. God bless you, Heather.

  • Our moment was when we were told we would never have children. I blogged about it in one of the most well-received posts on my blog. Here is the article:

    This is exactly where I am with my life and my writing.  As I have been documenting my journey to overcome depression, I have been leaving some elements out of my story, to protect some family members.  Things changed dramatically in the past few days, when family turned on me in a way I never expected and never saw coming.  I packed up  (I had moved in with family four months ago after my sister unexpectedly died, to help my niece and nephew get through this) and moved back to NY.   In this moment where I have now not only lost my sister, but my relationship with my father, brother in law and niece and nephew is forever changed, I have also found liberation. No longer will I hold back or censor for fear of hurting them.  If I have a story to tell, that I want to tell and feel compelled to tell, I will tell it fully and truthfully.  I know my writing has improved in the past two days, and will continue to do so. 

    • Congratulations to you. Without going into too much detail here in these comments, I feel your pain. I kept a story secret for years and it came close to destroying my family (and myself) before I told it. To be honest, it came even CLOSER to destroying my family once I told it. But it had to come out and I’m at peace because it did. If you need someone to talk to, please feel free to contact me. I still haven’t told this story to many people outside of the family but it liberated me so much once I let it go. Good luck to you. If you need an ear there are people (even strangers) who care…and who don’t need to know the ugly details. 

  • I’ve gotten to part 4 of one of my most painful stories. I haven’t been able to finish it yet. I’m hoping this blog post will be the catalyst I need.

    I really hope I can write “Part 5…the final moment” before too long. I think I’ll be able to because of the comments I’ve read here. Thanks, Jeff. 

  • A really poignant and thought provoking story, shared so lovingly. I have written a part of my own story to link up with you. You can read it here:

     I was hit by a Dodge truch in 2009 while riding my bicycle in a hit and
    run accident. Through the physical pain and the mental anguish of
    knowing my life was over as I knew it, I bent to my knees. Through a
    series of miraculous events I was born again in the Spirit as Acts
    Chapter II states. 2 years later, when i went to pray, God told me to
    go to the garage group men’s meeting. I would never have gone without
    his insistence. I went, told my story with all the details in it about
    my being bor-again. After the men’s meeting was over, I went to get in
    my car to leave, and a man approached me and extremely hesistantly said
    “I am the one that hit you”. I forgave him on the spot and told him God
    forgave him too. We are friends now. The details of the story are

    HOW DR OYAKHILOMEN HELPED ME GET MY EX BACK
    I AM AMANDA MORELLI my husband dumped me 9(nine) months ago after I accused him of seeing another girl. I wanted him back in my life but he refused to have any contact with me. He changed his mobile number, blocked me from sending him mails and even on facebook. I was so confused and lost concentration that made me lose my job, it was disastrous. I kept seeing on several blogs how a spell caster keeps helping people get their ex back and I contacted this spell caster called Dr OYAKHILOMEN for help, he assured me in 48hours that my ex will return to me, and to my greatest surprise my ex called me for the first time since we broke up. I am so happy that my love is back again, we are now happier than ever and I have gotten a job far better than my previous one, once again thank you Dr OYAKHILOMEN, you are truly gifted and powerful. Email this wonderful man on; oyakhilomenspiritualhome@gmail.com. He is the only answer to your problems. He can be of great help and I will not stop publishing his name for the good work he did for me . again his email address is oyakhilomenspiritualhome@gmail.com.

  • Ero Lovespell

    Hi My name is ‘Bruno Rico’ just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 7years with 2kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce… I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me cause i loved her with all my heart and didn’t want to loose her but everything just didn’t work out… she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used roots and herbs… Within 7 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our third child. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him via eromosalelovespell@outlook.com Don’t give up just yet, the different between ‘Ordinary’ & ‘Extra-Ordinary’ is the ‘Extra’ so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it’s truly worth it.

    I AM SANDRA DICKSON, my husband dumped me 9(nine) months ago after I accused him of seeing another girl. I wanted him back in my life but he refused to have any contact with me. He changed his mobile number, blocked me from sending him mails and even on Facebook. I was so confused and lost concentration that made me lose my job, it was disastrous. I kept seeing on several blogs how a spell caster keeps helping people get their ex back and I contacted this spell caster called DR CUBA for help, he assured me in 48hours that my ex will return to me, and to my greatest surprise my ex called me for the first time since we broke up. I am so happy that my love is back again, we are now happier than ever and I have gotten a job far better than my previous one, once again thank you DR CUBA TEMPLE , you are truly gifted and powerful. Email this wonderful man on drcubatemple@gmail.com. He is the only answer to your problems. He can be of great help and I will not stop publishing his name for the good work he did for me . again his email address is drcubatemple@gmail.com

    I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is atilahealinghome@yahoo.com

  • Karen Lola

    Am Karen Lola from Scotland. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. Trust by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.Trust. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.Trust for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.
