How to Share Your Story with Others

Keeping It Centered

Jun 16 2021 • 1 hr 9 mins

When I was a little girl, my love for words and stories began through trips to our local and school libraries. When my mom was at a hair salon, sometimes, I’d even hit the jackpot and find a book left behind that I could read. I also loved Sunday School and how my teachers shared Bible stories with my peers and me.

Stories have the power to make you feel less lonely and more understood. They can take you to galaxies far away or give you hard truths from your favorite motivational figure.

Editor and Writing Coach, Beth Crosby, knows how powerful storytelling is, too. That’s why she’s on a mission to help entrepreneurial women share their unique qualifications and expertise through sharing stories. Beth believes each of us has a story to tell and with the right support, we can share those stories well.

In today’s episode, Beth shares with us:

  • what a writing coach is and how to know if you need one,
  • three common writing myths that can sabotage your writing success,
  • the various types of editors + how to know which you need—and when,
  • tips for improving your writing,
  • why your story matters, and more!

Scriptures

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. - Isaiah 55:8-9 ESV

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. - 1 Corinthians 12:12 ESV

For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? - Luke 14:28 ESV

Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. - Proverbs 15:22 ESV

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. - Proverbs 19:21 ESV
