Los Angeles, CA — Stories matter. They provide a compelling conduit through which we can connect with and impact other people, and never (it seems) has the power of story been more pronounced than in our era of social media sharing and influence.

Here to encourage everyone to embrace their own stories and share them in a way that could be of value to others is international speaker and sought-after story expert, Linda Olson. Her latest book, Story Matters! Empowering Your Hope When Going Through Tough Times, provides real-life examples of seven ordinary women, who, through their faith in God, rose above their circumstances and discovered a deeper fulfillment than they had ever imagined.

In this book, readers will learn:
– How a single woman rose above childhood trauma to conquer fear and loneliness.
– How a young mother moved through grief and loss when her young child was diagnosed with a terminal illness.
– How a caring sister became embroiled in a devastating lawsuit and discovered that forgiveness is a choice.
– How a middle-aged woman, faced with a choice to live or die, once again found joy.
– How a career woman who achieved the many pleasures of the world discovered her real fulfillment was through commitment.
– How a college student fulfilled her dream, only to find out her real dream lay deep within her.
– How a teenager, devastated by the death of her brother, became a professional storyteller.

“All of these women wanted to give in and give up because they felt themselves giving out,” Olson said. “But something kept them going!”

And now they’re using the power of their stories to make a difference.
