What If You Shared Your Story Instead of Your Opinion? #100Words

speak3_finalI’m so excited for my friend Nish Weiseth – her book Speak was released just a few days ago. The first question on the back cover sums it up nicely: “How would your life be different if you shared your stories rather than your opinions?” These are whirlwind days, these days just after the birth of a paperback, and this week’s #100Words are from Speak: How Your Story Can Change the World:

Here’s the reality: Some people are living the lives Hollywood movies, great novels, and stage productions are made of. Some people are living absolutely fantastical lives, to which I say, “Well done!” But the flip side is that most people aren’t living lives full of extraordinary events and circumstances. Most people are living life by daily fulfilling the obligations set before them. To most, these lives don’t seem like anything to write home about. And though you may be living what seems like an ordinary life, faithfully doing what God has placed in front of you to do means you are actually living an extraordinary story.

I love not only what Nish writes about in this book but also what she has created over at Deeper Story, a site where dozens of writers share powerful stories.
