    All witnessing really is, is telling a story All of life is a story All relationships are built on stories Andand , it seems that people are catching on to this centrality of story It s a theme I ve seen recurring in many places over the past few months But HAVING a story is one thing we all do, without even having to work at it , TELLING that story well is another It s a craft.That craft is what the author focuses on in this book God has already written your story But All witnessing really is, is telling a story All of life is a story All relationships are built on stories Andand , it seems that people are catching on to this centrality of story It s a theme I ve seen recurring in many places over the past few months But HAVING a story is one thing we all do, without even having to work at it , TELLING that story well is another It s a craft.That craft is what the author focuses on in this book God has already written your story But can you recognize it Can you retell it clearly A few people, the natural born storytellers, probably can The rest of us need help learning this skill, and this workbook delivers.Step by step, it walks you through identifying, writing, and polishing your story It does so by both telling giving the reader instructions regarding what to do next and showing offering both good and bad examples.I believe this book has potential for application in several different capacities It is, obviously, designed to equip the reader to testifyeffectively for the Lord I believe it does that However, it also has the potential to produce spiritual growth IN THE INDIVIDUAL himself, as it encourages an examination of the ways God has worked in his own life And it s a surprisingly useful academic tool The heart of the PRACTICAL portions of this book is the skillful telling of a story, which is a skill that s applicable in a variety of arenas So while the book is designed to USE writing skills to DEVELOP a spiritual skill, I believe it could also be used effectively in reverse USING the spiritual context to DEVELOP the practical skills of writing I think this will provide an excellent opportunity for my middle school daughter and plan to incorporate this into our homeschool curriculum to help her hone her writing skills.I enjoyed this, and found it to be both a fairly quick and easy read, and a challenging set of exercises.I received this book free to facilitate my review However, all opinions expressed here are entirely my own
