A Beautiful Month

We have had a beautiful month of stories from people pouring out their hearts in order to turn their pain into a little bit of wisdom for others. I want to sincerely thank everyone who has participated. I have been continually floored by people’s honesty and generosity of spirit in this series.

If you want to share your story and haven’t yet, don’t worry, I am going to keep all of the series we’ve had here open. That includes our latest From Darkness to Light event, as well as the earlier ones: Rage Against the Machine, On Living and Dying and Walking With Intention. Click on any of those links to get the full information and add your voice to the discussion. If you have written for one or more of the series, feel free to contribute more and write for the series that you have not yet written for. I just want to keep the sharing going for as long as possible. If you are up for it, I am ready to do my part.

But for now let’s have a look back at this past month. Please check out the contributors that you might have missed.

About the author

I am a King without a Kingdom, in a world with many masters, wrapped in the spoils of a jealous heart, and my people’s callous laughter.


    1. Thank you. It keeps me inspired to read everyone’s stories. I’m always pleasantly surprised in all of the different directions people take the prompt in.

  1. It was indeed a beautiful month. The posts have been so good….and each one was different. I found them very inspiring and have used things that I learned from them. I hope a lot more people submit posts.

  2. Always wonderful + generally synchronous. Thank you for this series and for everyone who shared! I will, one day, get around to writing a contribution as well :).
