♥ Purpose: To encourage women to live well, see the evidence of God at work in their lives, and share their stories and the hope of Christ with others
"I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world." -Mother Teresa
Studies have shown that writing about our lives can have many benefits.
Throughout the Bible, people have written accounts of their experiences, thoughts, feelings, and events of their day. But most importantly, the Holy Spirit inspired them to write specifically what God has done for them and for others, what He has said to them and to others, and what He has promised to them and to others (and that means us!) It covers thousands of years of history in an intimate way.
The New Testament part of the Bible begins with the account of Christ's birth, records many incidents in which Jesus related to people and made an eternal difference in their lives. People began talking and writing about these things immediately after Christ's death, while they were vivid and clear in their minds. God enabled them to remember the truth. Their letters tell of how the Good News of Christ spread, and how to live the Christian life.
Taken as a whole, the Bible explains why and how Jesus Christ is our Savior. There are layer upon layer of illustrative stories and wisdom, the greatest being the parables of Jesus. In a somewhat related way, sharing a story about your life with someone else can bless them and encourage them, and it can bring glory and praise to God. He calls us to remember Him and what He has done! He gave us life, sustains our life, and grants us eternal life. We can tell our "Life" stories.
