Your Story Matters
I believe your story matters. You have had a unique life experience. You have learned incredible lessons and conceived awesome ideas. You know truths that could help someone else. Many of these things are deeply valuable.
At the core of social media is people and their lives. Think about it, why do you follow the people on social media that you do? The answer for most of us is to hear a individual's perspective, to see what they are doing, and find out what happens in their life. Regardless of the size of our audiences on social media, people are following us because they want to know about us. So if people are following you to watch and hear your story and if you believe your story is valuable, you should share it. Talking about ourselves on social media doesn't have to be done with pride or conceit. We can humbly share what we believe and what we are going through. As we share our perspectives and stories, we can share principles, truths, or joy that can be valuable to someone else.

I believe my story matters, so I'm going to share it. Through my story, however impressive or humble it may be, there are lessons to be learned and hope to be shared. Through whatever platform I have or circumstance I am in I want to share my story and tell how God has given me hope and redeemed me. At the very core of me is God's truth and His work in my life. Personally I'm convinced that is the most powerful part of my story. Perhaps you believe those same truths and have experienced God's work in the same way and you will share that part of your story. Maybe you have a different worldview that you desire to share with those you can reach. Every human is valuable and has something valuable to say, including you.
You might find opportunities to share your story and valuable lessons through one on one conversations or speaking engagements. Perhaps you will take advantage of YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Spotify, TikTok, or your own website. I believe every platform and piece of content has the potential to share hope with those who see, hear, and read it. I have personally decided to invest in each of these platforms, but where will you choose to share your message?
Your story matters. You have had unique life experiences, learned incredible lessons, and have amazing ideas that could help someone else. Share your perspective, share your story, and share hope.
