Wounded Storyteller or Victim: Your Choice

{Video} Wounded Storyteller or Victim – Your Choice

A spiritual legacy isn’t just about the good times and wonderful memories in your life.

It also holds the stories of your wounds.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve had your share of hurts, heartache, and betrayal.

Don’t waste them

In this short video I share why it’s important to move from victim to wounded storyteller…

…and who will benefit from your stories.

    What a wonderful idea to not only share experiences of your life with your grandchildren but also share the glory of how God brought you through different times. I will share with my grandchildren. Thank you for helping me build a spiritual legacy with them.

      Thanks for stopping by, Kathy, and for sharing what you received from the video. I know your grandchildren will look forward to your stories whenever they get a chance to cuddle with you. And of course, it’s mommas and grandmas that get the most out of that cuddle time, isn’t it?

    What a beautiful story about your grandma! It does take awhile to move from victim to wounded storyteller, but in the end I hope I have been a good storyteller to those around me.

      Yes, it does take time, KC, and perhaps that’s why we’re usually grandparents by the time we’re ready to share the stories properly. 🙁 The healing time allows the scars to form that mark our victory, just as those Jesus bears mark His. And I’m sure those around you would agree that you’re a great storyteller.
      Blessings, Susan

    Loved the “smell holy” comment. This was a very insightful message. It was also very nice to see you “in person.” I so agree with you…how we wear our wounds makes all the difference in the Kingdom and how we can open our lives to others. Beautiful!

      Thanks for the encouragement, Bonnie. So glad you enjoyed the video. And I love how you worded “wear our wounds” … great visual for me to remember.

    Thanks for sharing. Your life stories really can help others. They will see how God helped you and feel hooe in there own life.
    God Bless

      Thank you for your comments, Tammy. Stories are such an easy way to share about God’s faithfulness, aren’t they? And I agree with your insight … hope is such a powerful message when shared through a story.
