What Is Your Story?

So you’ve listened to me for many months now, and if you’ve read my book, Storm Sisters, you’ve heard lots of my stories.  You may be saying, “Enough already!”

Do you mind if we change things up a bit? I would like to hear YOUR stories. And I know others readers of this blog would too.


Because hearing another’s story reminds us that we have company. In our busy, disconnected, unpredictable, and often lonely world, don’t we all need that?

C. S. Lewis said it so well in his book, The Four Loves: “Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .””  https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/14816053-the-four-loves

In chapter three (p. 40) of my book I write, “I have never asked for help well. I am much more comfortable helping than receiving help.” I then describe a time when I found the courage to ask for help and the surprising help-gifts my friends offered.

Did you have a similar moment? A time when you found the courage to ask another for help? If so, brave friend, would you tell us your story?

Do not include full names, just use initials. And do not include location details. Do include your hesitations, worries, motivation, challenges, joys, lessons learned, etc. And describe your friend’s reaction to your “Help” cry.

I will edit (gently, I promise!) your story, let you see it before it runs in the blog, and send you and your Storm Sister each a signed copy of my book as well as a set of handmade Storm Sister cards, designed specifically for you by my talented friend, Melody Bodger: http://www.pinterest.com/aftonrorvik/cards-by-melody-bodger/

So looking forward to hearing your stories. Thank you!!
