“We all have stories. Our big stories reveal the direction of our lives and all the things that inherently make up who we are, our personalities, skills, beliefs, fears, longings and experiences. But life is filled with our little stories as well. The everyday happenings that slip by almost unnoticed. It is the accumulation of our little stories that form our big story.”
Your Story Matters by Emra Smith is a little book filled with lots of inspiration. Author Emra Smith opens this book by sharing her own difficult and tumultuous young life story. But, in addition to the transitions of her life, there was a miracle of God that would begin to shape not just her story, but that of her entire family. The author readily shares all of her life, not just the good and pretty, but the not so good and ugly sides as well in open and pure honesty. This is after all, her story and it matters.
In the succeeding chapters, more stories are shared and we as the reader are drawn in to realize that our stories matter as well. As the author says, “we all have a big story to share… but life is filled with our little stories as well.” Indeed we sometimes think that our little stories don’t matter and aren’t important. But these are the stories of our lives and yes they do matter.
This is a physically small book in size and length, but it is a great book that can be slipped into a pocket to be taken along for encouragement for your story.
