    • HERshops: Our stories, woven together, are who we are and what we become. Long after we leave this world our stories will remain. When write our stories – and share them out-loud – we not only lift our own lives, we lift others as well. Telling our stories – confronting our truths, our fear, our anger, our shame – takes huge courage. Examining these truths leads to change. When we write our stories, we very often right our lives.
