My Six-Word Memoir

On Jenny Rohrs's website,, she had an entry on her blog regarding an exercise called "The Six-Word Memoir." I decided to take a moment and actually think abut what my six-word memoir would be (to describe my current life). I normally tell myself I don't have time to write, and this was a good way to tell myself, "You have time for six words, don't you?"

I wrote:
"Little Wendy, coming into the light."

I feel an awakening happening this year for me. I was on the phone pretty late last night with one of my husband's friends, talking about my present journey, exploring the creative life, taking risks, and trusting that God will lead me toward the path He wants me to take. All I need to do is take His hand.

For me, spirituality is definitely linked to the creative. I feel empty if either is lacking in my life.

I challenge you to take a moment and work-out your own 6-word memoir.
I'd love it if you could also share it by posting a comment on this site.
Best wishes on your own journey, and may you trust the hand of God to bring you forward.

Good post, I shared it with my's what I wrote, but I think I'm going to give it more thought, this was my 5-minute attempt:

"Lucky Me: Despite everything, still strong"

I need to make it less Haiku, more "telling". A work in progress.

I'm so glad you tried this, Tracye!
I actually love your "5-minute attempt." Nice testimony!
Fun exercize, isn't it?
