Friday's Answer: Tell A Story

“There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.”
—Ursula K. LeGuin

God has been teaching us here at Homeschool Group Leader a powerful truth this last week or so. And it is that stories are a great way to communicate.

Think about it. When Jesus wanted to get an important point across, what did he do? He told a story.

There are so many advantages of stories: People remember the details better. People receive difficult or challenging information easier when couched in a story. Stories help people feel connected to the one the story is about, as well as to the storyteller. And sharing stories is just plain fun.

So, don't be afraid to share your story with another this week. To get the ball rolling, we'll share part of ours. . . .

Building a great homeschool group leader society one story at a time,
