I’ve experienced many times in my life when the obstacle or issue I’m facing feels just too big. It’s easy in tough times to think and feel that I’m alone or the only one dealing with this kind of pain or problem. I don’t think anything helps me as much as hearing other people’s stories. I’ve written before about how much I love Story. Hearing the tales of others helps me to gain perspective, see hope and get a reminder than I am not alone.
Stories are the reason why I love I Am Second. I Am Second is a movement to inspire people to live for God and to live for others. I’ve been a big fan of their videos for a long time and turn to them during tough times. The stories people tell, the struggles they experienced and the lessons they learn provide hope and inspiration to many and countless others.
Here’s one that resonated with me:
I Am Second has been filming and sharing the stories of individuals for a few years now. They provide hope for the hurting. Click through their website, I bet you’ll find a topic that resonates with you or someone you care about.
I Am Second has many more stories to share. You can help. Commit $2 every Tuesday to build film funds and your contribution will be used to develop, produce and promote new films.
I don’t share things on my blog unless I believe in them personally. I Am Second is special to me. I hope you’ll check them out and watch some stories.
