Barbara Thomas was in the June audience and she said I enjoyed Story Matters so much that when the last story was told, I yearned for more! Each storyteller touched my emotions and heart with the framework and details of their stories. Their messages came across clearly, sharing inspiration in their life experience. Thank you storytellers for sharing your stories and inspiration. I loved Story Matters and looking forward to the next one in August!
Eric Simmons echoes her sentiment. Storytelling connects strangers and brings people who know each other closer together. Story M
atters did exactly that. Story Matters, like all storytelling, invited listeners to get to know strangers and get to know even good friends in a new way. It wasn't confessional but beautifully illuminating.
Storytellers include -
Teri Foltz who will recount what it’s like to be an introvert in a extrovert profession.
Justin Smith who will discuss the pitfalls and pratfalls he has faced as a parent.
Michael Clos will reveal how his life did not go as planned.
Shelly Schlarman Walsh will recount how a serious sudden illness upsets your world.
Snezana Popaja Tenhundfeld will recall what it was like being a child war refugee.
Deb Reker will tell a story about the hazards and heroes of aging.
We hope to see you there for another entertaining, revealing, thoughtful, and uplifting event.
This quilt of stories will be archived and then presented during the sesquicentennial celebration in 2017.
