You don’t have to be a Nobel prize winner or a decorated war hero… everyone has a story to tell, and every story matters!
Choose a few people at random off the street and ask who influenced them the most growing up. You’re likely to hear the same list of people: Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt, Uncle, coach, teacher, pastor. Sure, we may look up to famous athletes or musicians, but the people closest to us are the ones that really change our lives.
What about you... who influenced you most? Think about the stories they told. Do any stand out in particular? Maybe you loved hearing about the crazy adventures your dad went on as a child, or about how your grandparents immigrated with only $20 and a firm belief in the American dream.
These are the stories that stick with you - the stories that shape your worldview. They’re woven together to form the tapestry of your own personal story!
