Tell Me Your Stories

People in all times and places have told stories. Stories have probably been shared in every family in every culture as a means of entertainment, preservation of family history and to instill knowledge, wisdom and moral values in youth. Traditionally, family stories were passed from generation to generation, in the car during road trips, on a rocking chair porch or around the dinner table, at family reunions, weddings or funerals, and whenever the need arose to help someone better understand a significant life event or challenge. Such stories are often lessons that still teach even though generations may have passed since the events of the story originally unfolded.

Family stories also all too often survive only in memory, and as such, slowly fade away. I would like to capture important family stories while they are still fresh in the hearts and minds of those who tell them. I want to give longevity to stories about family, love and faith that can inspire others for years, even generations, to come.

If you have an inspirational story to share, one you think others will enjoy and perhaps learn an important life lesson from, please tell it to me. I am interested in stories about:

Father – Daughter relationships
Father – Son relationships
Mother – Daughter relationships
Mother – Son relationships
Falling in Love
Lasting Love (wisdom of older couples)
Lessons taught by Grandparents
Faith Experiences
Best Friends

You may submit stories through my website: www.gregoryelang.com

Well, I guess that’s enough for today. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Now go out and hug somebody!
