Telling Your Story, Deepening Your Faith
Tell your story, change your life.
Each of us has a story to tell. And each of our stories makes up a vital thread of the tapestry of human life: God's great story of love and creativity. The catalyst for this personal reflection is often a "cannonball moment"—a time of (sometimes explosive) change in our lives brimming with both challenge and opportunity, heartache and joy. In recognizing these cannonball moments, we see more fully the breadth and depth of our personal story and the values that underpin it. This self-work empowers us to listen more attentively to our hearts and to the stories of others—and to inspire all to act for the common good.
By applying Ignatian principles of inner work and self-reflection to storytelling, Eric Clayton offers guidance on how to notice details in your daily life, to develop an attitude of healthy indifference in matters great and small, and respond to feelings of restlessness with clarity and focus. This book offers encouragement and direction, examples to show the way, and practical exercises to help you discover and reflect on your own cannonball moments.
The time to tell your story is now.
