A good friend of mine, JoLyn Brown, is compiling true stories for a book titled Circle of Sisters. Here's what JoLyn says about her project:
Every day, ordinary women who belong to the Relief Society Organization put their hands in the Lord's and go to work. These women rely on personal revelation to get them to the right place at the right time, and every day, miracles are happening. I know that you have seen these miracles in your own lives. I know they have changed you for the better... My goal is to create a collection of these stories.
Since starting this project, I have been amazed at how much clearer the purpose of Relief Society Organization has become to me. As I searched my own life for experiences that changed me, I have seen how even in times when I thought I was giving the service, I received so much in return. It seems our lives are interconnected, with each person's story overlapping and reaching into another's. Our power to make a difference is remarkable and with the Lord's help, we can each experience first hand what it feels like to be a part of something incredible.
Please keep in mind that I will not be able to offer any payment for your stories, but this may be a chance for you to get publishing credits which is always great.
JoLyn has a publisher who's expressed interest in the concept, and if you're interested in sharing your story with her, click here for the submission guidelines. The deadline for submissions is January 14th, 2012.
