Since the beginning of time storytelling has been an important part of communication. Parents and grandparents passed on what they learned to their children and grandchildren.

And that might happen. And that might lead you to another story of how God helped you through that situation!
Sharing your “God moments” helps you to recognize and keep a record of His touch on your life. This is your story, and if you don’t share it, who will?
