UNIQUENESS: NO ONE HAS A STORY EXACTLY LIKE YOURS. Your story is unique–distinct from mine or your sister’s, mother’s, daughter’s, best friend’s, pastor’s or favorite author’s.
POWER: There is power in each of our stories and we maximize that power when we partner with God. Your story is power-packed, too. Really.
