OUR MISSION

My Story Matters promotes healing, inspires hope, and celebrates courage in everyday heroes by engaging them in a process that helps them reflect, recount, record, and reframe their stories.

OUR VISION

Our vision is to engage communities in embracing stories of all individuals as heroes of their own personal journey and, in that process, become more united in compassion, understanding, and empathy as we realize every story really does matter!

OUR VALUES

MY STORY MATTERS CORE VALUES - THE 8 CS OF CONSCIOUS CREATION

 

Commit. We commit to uplifting, inspiring, and edifying individuals to own the creative power within them to write their own stories and discover strength, hope, and healing in the process.

 

Craft. We craft templates, programs, story development processes, and books using evidence-based research, narrative theory, defined creative principles, and superior workmanship to inspire transformation.

 

Community. We build a community where people tell individual stories‚ÄĒfrom seemingly different cultures, languages, religions, ethnicities, socioeconomic conditions, and life experiences‚ÄĒonly to discover and empathize with the universal humanity in each of us.

 

Claim. We claim individual voice as the foundational expression of being an agency.

 

Collaborate. We collaborate with individuals to tell their stories by honoring their voices, engaging them to reflect, recount, record, and reframe their stories, and then encouraging them to be conscious authors of their own journey.

 

Compassion. We carry the process of telling one’s story and the stories themselves to families, communities, and institutions in widening circles of compassion, understanding, and empathy.

 

Coach. We coach, assess, and improve the theory and the process of transformation through conscious self-evaluation to enhance outcomes and impact.

 

Cycle. As stories are created in cycles, we write and rewrite MSM’s transformational narrative cyclically to embrace new thoughts, conscious creation, and change.
