Overview

When Grammy-nominated recording artist Matthew West started writing his top-selling new album, The Story of Your Life (Sparrow, 2010) he asked fans to submit personal experiences. More than 10,000 tales of hope, perseverance, and redemption poured in. With friend and author Angela Thomas, West presents some of these powerful stories paired with meaningful devotions they inspired.

  • Wendy gave birth to her daughter in jail. When all seemed hopeless, she found God and her life transformed into something beautiful.
  • Cory, a married youth pastor, had an affair and his life fell apart. With God's mercy, he and his wife gathered the broken pieces and started again.
  • Sheila always struggled with severe insecurity. Now she lives confidently in the purpose God has for her.

This unforgettable devotional journey inspires readers to discover God as the author of their unique lives and to share the power of their story.

Also available this season--a companion DVD of the same title and a standalone guide, The Story of Your Life Interactive Journey. The DVD and book help readers, individually or as part of a group study, personalize and explore more deeply the messages of God's hope and redemption in their own stories.

    The Story of Your Life

    Matthew West writes about ordinary people and the problems in their lives. It is inspirational because we can relate to some of the problems. It is moving that these people found that with God in their lives life can change if they have faith. It shows how very difficult the road is and how with God in you life life is worth living.
    His CD by the same title is truly inspirational as well. He is an ordinary man with an extra ordinary message. I would highly recommend it for the examples of how we too can overcome situations that makes less whole. He is truly a man of God with a great gift.
