“There is history in all men’s lives.” — William Shakespeare

In their book, “More to Your Story,” W. Craig Zwick and his wife Jan wrote that “our lives are filled with short but powerful vignettes that individually may not have immediate or major impact. Often they are forgotten and seldom recorded for future reference. But the fact remains that if in our hearts and minds there is a record kept our a treasure saved, we have opportunities to review, use, and especially ‘treasure up’ (D&C 84:85) those once-forgotten morsels of spiritual energy that can teach us sacred and true principles.”creative-writing

The Zwicks went on to say our lives are filled with teaching and learning moments, and it is impossible to overestimate the influence our own stories can have on us, our children, and future generations. “But if we and those we love are to benefit from these moments, we would be wise to ‘treasure up … the words of life,’ (D&C 84:85) write them down, and frequently recount them — thus making part of our family lore and heritage.”

In essence, each individual has a unique story that is powerful and meaningful in some way. And when you share that story, the wisdom and experience gained can bless lives.

But perhaps you don’t have time to record your story and need help. Perhaps you are intimidated by the idea of attempting to adequately portray your story on paper.
