In this book you will clearly see that your stories (yes, plural) ARE valuable and DO need to be shared with others, no matter where the "others" are in their journey of faith. You'll discover that you have three types of faith stories to share (not just one).
Even though "dramatic" stories seem to get the most air time in magazines and messages, we still need to hear your stories of day-to-day faithfulness. Those types of stories--your stories--are valuable, and most folk relate to them better.

Her book is real, practical, and concise. She includes study questions to dig deeper to prepare or refine our stories, so we come away with action steps to make our stories more effective. Get Personal is a great tool for individuals, families, study groups, youth groups, and home groups.
No matter how long we have been Christians, we all have stories, and Erin’s book helps us maximize the impact of our faith stories so they touch more hearts and change more lives.
Pastor and Author
It turns out that our "normal" stories are what others will relate to. I'm not great at sharing my story with others but Erin persuaded me that it can be natural; it's about sharing myself with the people around me, about being willing to be vulnerable with my hurts, joys, struggles, my underbelly side- in order to encourage, help, strengthen other people in their own life.
-questions to help me think of the stories in my life that I've disregarded
-how to become a better story teller
-why stories work better than facts
-why it's important to pay attention to how God is working in our lives- for us and for others
-questions for personal and group use (I can think of a couple of friends who would enjoy talking through these questions out loud).
