Your Story Your Strength
Smoke rose from the home in the pre-dawn light.
A kind stranger stopped his car and ran to the house, sending his daughter to wake the neighbours and call the fire department.
From inside, he could hear the screams of a child.
This day began the author's journey towards discovering the incredible power of story. Power to not only understand the events of her life, but also to see patterns, find healing, foster better relationships, and to discover her strengths and even her purpose. And this undeniable, awe-inspiring, life-changing power lies within EVERY story. Including yours.
No matter who you are or what you've been through, there's a lesson, a gift, in your story. In these pages you can find that healing, that lesson or gift, and then discover your own way to share that story with the world to encourage healing in others. Take this journey and free yourself to embrace your purpose
and all you were created to be.
That is the power of your story.
Having been a storyteller for more than three decades, I am a firm believer in the power of story. In this book, Kelly not only tells her own story with expert finesse, but also walks with readers on their own healing path. The combination is powerful, moving, and healing. I am beyond grateful for this work!

This book is a unique and powerful look into who we are and the stories that define us. Kelly has a way of writing that makes the reader examine the deeply-rooted patterns behind how we think and gently suggests more productive ways to reflect on both past and present events. She shows us that by changing the way we see our stories, we can see our lives through a better lens.

A quintessential piece of literature for anyone who wants to grow as a person or have an impact on others. Every person, especially those who are in the midst of living through or processing their own struggle and experience, should have this book in their hands. It is one of those world-changers, and I am honoured to have read it. I can't wait to gift this to literally everyone I care about.
