31 Days of Story {Day 1} Telling Better Stories

I got to host this giveaway last week.
Of Matthew West and his newest album release.
{Check here, by the way, to see if YOU are one of the album winners}

His album, Into the Light, was all about telling the stories of his listeners.
And I loved that concept.
Breathing life into our stories.

And I realized that is my heart
in everything that I write
in the pictures that I snap
in the words that I speak
to give life to the story flowing through it.

Stories of joy.
Stories of hope.

Stories of heartbreak.
Stories of failure.

Stories of forgiveness.
Stories of second chances.

Stories that bring fears to light.
Stories that take you through the darkest nights.

Stories that move you.
Stories that make your heart soar.

Stories that tell His story.
Through me.
Through you.
Through them.

Will you join me over the next 31 days in a journey of story?

The ones I know.
The ones I have lived.
The ones I have seen.
The ones I have heard.
With words and in photographs.

I look forward to learning to tell better stories.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
After all, it is not a story without the people.
A story is not real without the people who make it sing.
