Why We Need Your Story

This is for the writer, the speaker, the dreamer, the artist in all of us.

Those with the desire to share what God is doing in their lives.

You may think your story is boring.

Or uneventful.

Or too this. Or too that.

But the truth is, your story is important. It’s needed.

Your family needs to hear it. Your fellow mom community needs to hear it. You need to hear it. Like out loud.

To proclaim what God has done, and how He is moving in and through your life. Through your story. Through the perspective that only you can give.

So often we allow our mouths to be muted to the work happening within us. Maybe we’re fearful. Apprehensive about what others may say. Or we need time. Time to process and figure out what it all means … to be a new creation; a transformed follower of Jesus. Being quiet can seem like the safe choice. The better choice. The easy choice.

For life in general has a way of shaping us and molding us. And not always in the most pleasant ways. Every day our patience levels are being stretched to their limits. Our sanity and compassion is being tested on an hourly sometimes minute-by-minute basis. Our knees and hearts ache with the prayers offered up in desperation, laying our hopes and dreams for our children (and for ourselves) at the foot of the cross.

And all these things, the moving and molding, the developing and discipleship, are all a part of our story.

So share it. Please.

Because it’s important. YOU, my friend, are important.

No story is the same. No life script identical.

So go and declare what God has done. What He is doing.

The world is waiting to hear about your life. In your words.

For those of you who know that burning within. The urge to share. Whether through writing, speaking, singing, painting, or simply sharing with your family. You know who you are. This is your call to action. However God has gifted you, use those gifts! For your family. For your friends. For the world.

LET  YOUR  LIFE  BE  A  MEGAPHONE  FOR  HIS  GLORY.

We’re cheering for you! xo

Psalm 96:3

*** Keep your ears tuned for ways you may be able to share your mothering adventures and stories with The Masterpiece Mom in the future. We want to be a community that encourages and builds one another up. And one way we can do that is through sharing from our own mothering experiences (the good, the bad, and the embarrassing). More than anything, we want this space to be a place where you find hope and encouragement for your mothering journey, every step of the way. We’re excited to share more with you soon. Stay tuned. ***

  1. This post is amazing! Today I was struggling a bit with tiny platform. But God’s timing is perfect. I will forever tell the amazing stories of all He’s done in me. If those stories encourage 5 people then those are the 5 people who needed to hear it. Thank you for this encouragement, my She Speaks friend.

    • I’m so glad, Jenn! Yes – I totally get this! It’s easy to loose perspective and become discouraged looking at numbers (instead of hearts) … the “I’m not big enough to make a difference” lies that creep in to our work and our efforts. Ack! But for every 5 people that you encourage with your words, that’s 5 hearts that are challenged and changed by what God is doing through YOU. Keep being a megaphone for His glory, friend! We’re cheering for you!!!

      xo,
      Anne-Renee 🙂
