You too?

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds…” Hebrews 10:24

Women encouraging women in every chapter.

This is the heart behind Sacred Story. The ministry exists to encourage women to be a voice for God’s faithfulness through story telling. We all need constant reminders that the Lord has purpose in our pain, uncertainty and disappointment. C. S. Lewis once said, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’ ”

There is power in understanding that we are not alone. As I have walked through various seasons in my life, I have gained hope by hearing stories of others who have walked before me whether it was singleness, infertility, job uncertainty or illness. When someone has blazed a difficult trail while holding the hand of Jesus, it deepens my understanding of the Lord and His presence in my own situation. I have that “you too?” moment which provides great comfort. Someone else really gets it.

Did you know our online ministry is so much more than our blog? We have a library of over 80 stories that I am certain will speak to what you or a loved one is facing today. Think for a minute about someone near to you who is struggling. Head over and search here under the themes. I know you can find a story that would encourage your loved one. Send it. That story may be the encouragement your friend needs today.

I have been so honored to have several of my friends contribute their stories. Wynne and Jennifer both have stories of God’s faithfulness through the struggle of infertility. {An update on Wynne: she gave birth to a baby girl earlier this year!} Elizabeth shares about dealing with a family member’s suicide. Julie honestly opens up about learning to love her husband. And Terri reveals how the Lord has redeemed and healed her past.

These are just a sampling of dear women who have contributed and we are prayerful that many more stories will be added this year. Have you thought about how a chapter in your story could encourage someone else? It can feel scary to step out and share your heart but I can guarantee there is someone out there who needs to hear it. Take a look at our helpful guidelines which will make it easier than you think to get your story written.

The world needs to see Jesus and our stories are a powerful tool to show others who He is and what He has done for us. Thank you for partnering with us as we seek to encourage women in every chapter.
