 "Story is what defines us and sets us apart. It's what allows us to connect with each other - to truly know and be known." - Jeff Goins

Stories are powerful. They are real, messy and unpredictable, full of mystery and intrigue. Telling the story of your life means embracing vulnerability, something many of us shy away from, and for good reason. Your story may be misunderstood and critiqued; you quickly learn to put it to rest, never to be told again. But your story needs to be told. We are all looking for a place where our story is safe and understood.

I remember a vulnerable time in my life just after the death of my mom. I am the type of person who is "just fine, thank you" and I struggle to open up - even to close friends. On one particular day, I was not doing well with my grief; it was consuming my thoughts and my heart was aching. A good friend walked in to that moment and asked how I was doing. Well, I wasn't "just fine, thank you", and I proceeded to peel back and share my emotions, raw and unedited. My friend didn't know what to do with my story in that moment and promptly flipped the conversation to another subject. I stood drenched in confusion and embarrassment. I felt my story was not safe and so I shut down.

We all have a story to tell and our stories need to be told. This week on Girlfriendit Radio we will be talking with http://alanchambers.org/Alan Chambers, President of Exodus International, whose mission statement is: Mobilizing the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality.

What's the story your life is telling? Join our conversation and share your story with us.

All stories accepted!
