Thursday Thoughts: Telling Your Story

This quote comes from a blog I stumbled upon written by a Mormon woman, C. Jane Kendrick. I thought the following quote was lovely and wise. I often wonder if I’m being┬ánarcissistic┬ábecause I write so much about myself. And while I think it’s ALWAYS good to self-check my motives for sharing, I also know God wants some of our stories to be told. Does anyone else struggle with this balance?

Here’s some food for thought:

Perhaps we think writing our life stories is too self-seeking, bordering narcissistic. We fail to see how the hard work we perform in writing will have much bigger pay offs than almost anything we do as women. Mostly, because we heal generations in the process…If we are Christ’s people, then our lives belong to Him. Our stories belong to Him. And He has every right to tell us when to open our mouths, and when to keep our testimonies in the corners of our hearts.”
