We connect with God in our humanity.... This is almost all I ever need to remember. Gravity and sadness yank us down, and hope gives us a nudge to help one another get back up or to sit with the fallen on the ground.
- Anne Lamott
We are constantly immersed in stories—from
television news to films, novels and
TV programs. The inspiring real-life
stories we tell here are stories of faith,
hope and love, stories of challenges
overcome as well as small unexpected
moments of grace.
More importantly, our inspiring true stories
are about and by people like you.
People who have discovered how to
live their lives with more hope and joy
and, through their stories and experiences,
have helped others to do the same.
