I’ve written a few novels and short stories, a Nintendo game and a handful of essays, done some impossible things and accomplished some epic success. So I’ve also spoken widely on topics of personal development to share that success, and I mentor people who want to change their lives and need a bit of guidance.
But above all, I’m all about Story. I have a little church on the beach with my dear friend Heather where we tell Stories every Friday to explore spiritual truths laced within the pages of adventure. Life is so much more fun that way.
Why? Because stories are the platforms of our lives.
You are enacting a story, living it page by page and writing it as you go along. Every decision you make opens a new chapter that takes your story in a different direction. When you revisit past chapters you have the power to read between the lines and discover new and deeper meanings – or simply to dwell on old words, if that is your choice. In this way you also have the power to shape the direction of your future, writing your story the way you want. You are never truly bound by the chapters of your past. But it takes empowerment and courage to recognize that.
My ministry is about story – yes – but it is the empowerment of the hero that drives the story. Who is the hero? You are, of course. You might feel a bit lost from time to time, but that’s part of the journey.
I believe true spirituality lies in the ability to go within and take a close look at the stories we’re writing. To honor our own spirituality and faith in whatever form it takes: religious, natural, secular or scientific. There is no need to align with one belief system or another, but we do have a deep responsibility to align with ourselves. To listen to our inner voice and acknowledge it. And that is a challenge.
“That’s what storytellers do. We restore order with imagination. We instill hope again and again.” (Walt Disney)
