Once Upon a Time: Discovering Our Forever After Story
Once Upon a Time Discovering Our Forever After Story Author:Debbie Macomber From one of America?s favorite storytellers, this beautiful, inspirational book helps you understand God?s plan for your life?a life that is one continuous, never-ending story. — ?What I didn?t understand at that time was that not only would all my writing dreams come true (and even above and beyond anything I could have dreamed or imagined), but... more » that I would come to see my own life as one grand story. That?s what this book is about.?
Debbie Macomber has inspired readers with her stories for decades. Now for the first time, she helps each of us understand that life is a story, part of a grand narrative that God is writing day by day.
With chapters on the importance of literary elements such as characters, setting, backstory, and conflict, Debbie uses the structure of a story to help you see how God is at work in your life. In addition, each chapter has a storytelling prompt?a searching question that will help you frame your story?and a sidebar focusing on one idea in the chapter and expanding it with practical tips.
Heartwarming, inspirational, and deeply meaningful, Once Upon a Time shares Debbie?s love of story and shows the big picture of the story God is writing through us.« less

Everyone who ever wanted to write should read this book. Debbie does an excellent job of picking the process apart and instructing us...but this book is not just for writers. Every church ought to use this book in their bible studies as it speaks to the souls of every Christian who struggles with everyday life.
It might be even more important for those who struggle without God's help. Some of the thoughts generated by this book could be life changing.
A deeply, personal non-fiction title by this author.
