YOUR STORY MATTERS by Emra Smith is a small book wrote with a lot of heart. I found a lot of love and healing moments and amazing quotes within the 73 pages of this book. It is an easy read but also can be picked up and put down as needed.

At first the simplicity of the book put me off, but later as Emra shared her life in an honest way, I grew to truly love the book. It's a book I want to keep, but want to share, also.

The Sub-title is TeaTime Stories, The Essence of Why Your Story Matters and she really will encourage you to write your story as well as share your story. She includes her conversations with Jesus along the way and give resources in the back of the book that will help you realize how much your story matters. There is a salvation invitation as well as many beautiful scriptures scattered inside the book.

One of my favorite quotes from the book is at the beginning of chapter seven: "Mindful sharing your story during a dark time can be part of your healing process. As you share, sometimes you are the encourager, and other times you may need encouragement. Needing encouragement is normal; clouds surround and descend upon us all. Allowing another person to help lift the load relieves the strain from your heart. It becomes a promise of light in the night.”

Many thanks to BookCrash who sent me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
