I talk with Meg Glesener about the importance of sharing our stories. Meg lived a hard life of childhood abuse, alcoholism, berating, and abandonment, yet through her trials she learned the value of our individual stories. Sharing your story is powerful! Join us for encouragement that comes from an extraordinary story of faith.

Quotables from the Episode:
- God has taught me that we don’t have to prove ourselves loveable to Him. He loves us regardless.
- It’s not time to share our story with others until we are no longer reliving the pain of it.
- Sharing our story with others, whether one or many, is planting seeds of courage in them to do the same.
- Psalm 147:3 ESV “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
- Romans 11:4 ESV “But what was the divine response to him? I have kept for myself seven thousand people who have not bent the knee to Baal.” (Elijah felt sooooo alone in his pain and struggle. But he wasn’t. And we aren’t either.)
- John 14:3 ESV “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”

I so agree with the quotes here-thank you!
So good! We are in the middle of a sermon series about testifying and telling the story of how God is working in our lives, so this is quite timely!
