Share Your Story

It's important to share your story.

I meant to get this up a few days ago, but alas, here it is Saturday evening. I've talked about the book project, Couch Rebels, on the blog before, but I wanted to do it again, because there is a deadline, people. A deadline to scribble down in a notebook, to pound out words, to talk about those places where life has become more than ordinary for you and where you can let us all dig into your story a little bit. That deadline is tonight. Sorry, and there's still time. :)

I desire to give voice to what has made life jump out at me, and I desire to know what's made that happen for you, too.

I'm thankful for this project because it allows people to come together for a common cause, it reminds me to get up off the couch (even when I don't want to), and it helps me rethink my everyday.

Cause Pub interviewed me about my submission, and I thought I'd post it, a) to excite you in case you want to finish your story (or need a push to submit!), and b), I haven't done a video on the blog before and I'm forever talking about video blogging.

By the way, there was a short snip-it at the end (a blooper, perhaps?!) that may or may not have been about how I actually love sitting on couches. As in a lot. Sometimes, there's a real need for that (but, a time and a place for everything..) It did not make it into the video. Oh, well. Enjoy!

And if you're a little bit nutty deadline driven like me, or just want to still share your story, do it!

I'll love you even more for it :).

Oh, and check out some other stories and don't forget to vote for your favorites. Here are some recent ones I've come across that touched me:

Life was Good, And All Was Well

A Living Story of Freedom

Trusting God..With Me

Fair and Clean

P.S. If you can't get your story in, you can still buy the book.
You can't lose.
