We believe you have a story worth telling.

We want to help you steward your story. 

 

What’s your story? 

Perhaps the answer to that question is bursting forth inside you. Or perhaps you’ve never asked yourself before and you have no idea. Whatever the case, know the truth: Every single person has a potent, powerful story. The difference between what most of us perceive as mediocre stories and powerful stories isn’t the story itself, but the level at which the teller of the story owns their own journey.

So, perhaps the greater question is “Do you own your story?”

What is your transformation? Where do you come from? Where have you been –– the good, the bad, and the wild? Where are you going? What have you had to learn over and over again? Do you have the courage to recognize the depth of truth within your own story?

Because, while everyone has a powerful story, not everyone is willing to embrace it.

So then, perhaps the greatest question is “Why own your story?”

The rewards of writing your own story are countless, but the greatest among them is the foundation it will establish within you. There’s nothing like writing your own story to discover sure conviction in your beliefs, values, and purpose. And there’s nothing like it to solidify in your own heart the transformation, journey, and message God has given you. Steward your story well –– it wasn’t given to you for you alone.

John Gillespie Book

 …You’ve been thinking about writing a book for many years and have not started.

John Gillespie had been a financial investment advisor for over 35 years. On and off for 30 years, he thought about writing a book about his philosophy of wealth management. John met with one of our team members a few times and developed a detailed outline for his book. He then took advantage of writing accountability process and had his entire manuscript written in less than four months. Over the next few months, his book was edited, the cover was designed, and the interior layout was completed. John’s book has established him as an authority in financial management. It has helped him differentiate himself from his competitors. Whenever he is asked to speak at various organizations, he either sells books or gives copies to the audience. His book help establishes his company’s brand which eventually positioned his company to be sold.

…People have heard your story and have said, “You should write a book!”

Greg Gunn had led a ministry called Family-iD for over 15 years. He talked to the pastor of his church about helping him promote his ministry. His pastor said he would be happy to, if he would first write a book about the ministry and his philosophy. Greg was able to get 75% of his book written and then hit a wall. He was able to talk to one of our team members and they made a plan to complete the book by having Greg dictate the remaining stories that were needed to finish the final three chapters. Our team used his ministry’s logo, colors and verbiage to create his book cover and get his book published and ready to use for ministry purposes. Having Greg’s book up on Amazon.com has increased the impact of his ministry around the country and Canada.

Roxanne Parks

…You lead a company, a non-profit or a ministry with many employees or members who have never heard how it all started and why.

Roxanne Parks was the president of a non-profit homeschool association. She wanted to encourage homeschool moms to not give up. She wanted to cast a vision and give them something to believe in. Roxanne had a story to tell and wanted to write a book in order to get the story into as many hands as possible. On a few different occasions she wrote an outline for a book, but never got started writing it. When she did decide to start writing it, she couldn’t find her outline. Roxanne contacted one of our team members. They sat down one morning and built a new outline. They met weekly for accountability in the beginning and as time went by, met every other week in order to get the book written. Roxanne is asked to speak nationally to homeschool conventions. She has recently started writing her own YouVersion bible app devotional reading plans.

…You have a rich family history that will be forgotten unless you get it in writing.

Trent Gibson wanted to make sure his son who was 8 years old, knew about his family history and wanted him to know what real manhood is all about. He asked, “If anything ever happened to me, what would I want my son Hunter to know when he is 25 years old?” With our help, he made a detailed outline. He then began dictating a story and a chapter at a time. Each time he finished a chapter, we would have it transcribed and edited for content. He was on a mission and completed the manuscript over a six-month period. While we were working on his book cover and getting it ready for publication, Trent started getting headaches and ended up finding out he had a brain tumor. Over the next five years, Trent fought a valiant fight against brain cancer. Unfortunately, he passed away in the fall of 2018. His book is one of the most important things Hunter has.

Chris Easton Book

…You are a professional who needs to share your “How to” with as many people as possible.

 Chris Easton is a physical therapist who specializes in shoulder, hip and knee replacements. He would give his clients the same “soap box” speech over and over. Many would forget what he said or lose the one sheets on various topics. A client of his told him he should put it all together is writing. Originally it was going to be an eight- or twelve-page brochure. Once Chris started compiling everything, he tells his clients, it became a book. He talks about how to prepare ahead of time, what to expect during the procedure and what to do after. He also prepares the caretaker for what they need to be thinking about. Chris said one of his greatest joys has been when people from around the world buy his book on Amazon.com. The joy he receives is in knowing he is helping people he will never meet in person.
