There’s Just Something About A Story

Romeo and Juliet’s fateful kiss.

The race of the tortoise and the hare.

Cinderella and the shoe that changed everything.

There’s just something about a great story. Stories inspire us. They entertain us. They teach us. And the best stories can be told over and over and still capture our hearts.

This is a season where it’s easy to get caught up in the wrong things and miss the bigger story. It’s easy to rush and hustle and buy and miss the simple story of a baby in a manger who changed everything. It can also be tempting to rush past the stories that God has written in our own lives and in the lives of others as one year passes and another bursts onto our calendars.

That’s why we’ve set aside this month to focus on stories. We know there’s a lot of important stuff we could be talking about this month. But sometimes the best lessons are woven into great stories, the best sermons are preached through lives changed.

Jesus knew this was true. He often revealed deep, spiritual truths through parables, or stories. We’ll unpack a few of those parables this month on the blog. You’ll also hear the stories of girls, just like you, who have been transformed. Their stories will inspire you to seek hard after God this year and to pay attention to the story He wants to tell with your life.

So cuddle up. Grab a cup of hot chocolate, and prepare to hear some great stories. You can start by following the link to these videos to hear stories of lives changed through the work of our parent ministry, Revive Our Hearts.
