48 hours is the time a birth mother in the state of Texas has with her child to make the decision of whether to move forward with her adoption plan or raise the child herself. @thearchibaldproject the orphan advocacy film and photography team who went with us to China has entered into another story and captured a raw and holy two days with three people knit together forever by a little baby boy named Everette. Take 20 minutes today and watch this film and understand more deeply how brave birth moms who choose adoption are and how loving adoptive couples can be when they put the birth Mom and baby first. It is truly a holy film to watch and grab your tissues you will need them. And please share this video on FB and on Instagram. Lives are changed through story telling, we know this first hand. People have contacted us all year to tell us how our adoption story led them to their child. #storiesmatter!  https://youtu.be/fY7TcOQOM5g

"The ukulele is my little escape. It started off as a chain reaction. You see, Dodie, an artist, inspired my friend Emma to play, Emma inspired me, and I inspired my friend, Cat. I got my first ukulele last Hanukkah, a soprano, but I had learned it last summer. When Emma saw how intrigued I was by it, she taught me a few chords and I later taught myself a myriad of different songs. When my parents saw how much I loved playing, they got me a tenor. That was for my birthday. I've now dedicated myself to learning far more advanced songs. I think everyone should learn music, or have it be a small part of them because it's just fun. It's the little groove to your day."

Play dates when I was younger were quite different to the ones I have now. Now I prefer them to be with my parents instead of monkey bars etc... but hey, still pack me a snack bag, just include a few ant-acids and we’ll share them 😂😂😂. My parents, aka “the groovers” are just amazing as they battle thru the daily grind of living in a body that sometimes ain’t cooperating. Each have a unique medically designed pattern of routines but oh how they do it... most days it’s a well oiled machine other’s, it’s like a comedy train wreck 😂😂😂 Resolving to increase my play dates with the groovers, there truly is never a dull moment and being in their company adds value to my life 🙌🏻

Once Theodore roosevelt said" The more you know about the past the better prepared you are about the future''. I visited our city's most iconic 'mostmanu temple' last evening. There's no iota of doubt that its magnificient beauty and divine aura can make anyone go phrenetic but for the major part there was something else that held my attention. I was more attracted towards the story behind its formation. But i didnt found any source there to satisfy my curious quest. I met few of the nearby local shop owners to find out that as the folk stories go this temple was built by a saint named Mostamanav, who came from Nepal and settled here. This temple is also believed to be a replica of Pashupati nath temple of Nepal. We must preserve our culture and our history. In this era of technology, somewhere we are loosing out on our culture and history. #mostmanutemple #storiesmatter #citypithoragarh #shotoniphone

Traveling to school can be dangerous for children due to the potential for abduction, assault and child trafficking. In Guatemala many of our CarePoints ensure that children will get to school safely by providing transportation. 
Give a meaningful gift this Christmas season to help expand educational programs to allow more opportunities for vulnerable children to explore their potential!

We have a lot of favorite moments from the weekend, but this one sure is at the top. How about those sweet Ghana faces lining BOTH sides of the road this year?! Faces of freedom because of our runners and lot of big dreaming.

We had a pretty rough day today. Everyone woke up on the wrong side of the bed, so #ElfOnTheShelf TED (The Elf be Damned) is giving us a pass. Thanks, TED!

Every drawing, every note, every piece of paper left behind at the end of a day, tells a story. Teachers get to be keepers of countless stories, and it's impossible not to feel humbled and grateful. #storiesmatter #cherished

Streunende Hunde sind in Rumänien allgegenwärtig. Die Tiere wurden irgendwann sich selbst überlassen, mit katastrophalen Folgen. Die Hunde werden gefangen und können nach 14 Tagen getötet werden. Private Träger versuchen das zu verhindern. Sie übernehmen die Tiere und versorgen sie. Wir @juana_doro haben uns dort umgeschaut.

Wir waren Anfang der Woche in Rumänien 🇷🇴. Eine Reise in die Vergangenheit, auch für mich persönlich. Vor drei Jahren waren wir @real.erichmiefke für ein paar Monate in Cluj-Napoca.

Das Land bietet Ost-Charme und kann sehr rough sein. Dazu zählt auch die Geschichte, für die wir jetzt hingereist sind...

The visit at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History reminded me how much art can touch you, make you think and feel. The beachy Santa Cruz vibes were still there, but the sound installation for Spoken/Unspoken made me stop and meditate about the things I left unsaid. #santacruz #museum #art #santacruzmuseumofartandhistory #spoken #unspoken #spokenunspoken #life #death #surfboard #rake #scythe #soundart #storiesmatter #sitdownandlisten

Grounded in Gestalt experiential process, the principles of improv, and a here-and-now approach to the craft of storytelling, this series is like no other you’ve participated in before. Gestalt teaches us how to stay present to our own emotions and the paradoxical complexities of being human, granting us the courage to truly been seen and heard as our unique selves. The storytelling structure gives us a framework upon which to build something of value, in a compelling manner, so that other people want to lean in and listen. Storytelling is a powerful medium for connecting us to one another. Through our stories we build empathy and a sense of belonging, critical to human existence. We literally grow our brains. This is a gift of immeasurable value, one you can give to yourself now and from which you can reap the benefits for many years to come, bestowing them upon others as you go. Feeling nervous? At 50% off, you and a friend get in at two-for-the-price-of-one and support one another through the process. What better gift could there be than granting yourself the space and giving yourself the tools to show up in the world confidently, comfortable in your own skin?

Play dates when I was younger were quite different to the ones I have now. Now I prefer them to be with my parents instead of monkey bars etc... but hey, still pack me a snack bag, just include a few ant-acids and we’ll share them 😂😂😂. My parents, aka “the groovers” are just amazing as they battle thru the daily grind of living in a body that sometimes ain’t cooperating. Each have a unique medically designed pattern of routines but oh how they do it... most days it’s a well oiled machine other’s, it’s like a comedy train wreck 😂😂😂 Resolving to increase my play dates with the groovers, there truly is never a dull moment and being in their company adds value to my life 🙌🏻

Andy Grammer🎤Singer Songwriter 🎼 on writing the hit song Keep Your Head Up... “I was rehearsing in my Santa Monica apartment and there was a knock on the door and there was a sticky note that literally said GIVE UP THE DREAM YOUR VOICE IS TERRIBLE. And there was no one even there. There wasn’t anyone to say, “oh you just suck.” It was like the world saying STOP... So later, I was out on the street doing my thing and there was a whole day that went by where I didn’t get ANY dollars... And I was like, WOW this is really intense... But it’s such a funny thing, such like a sweet defiance to follow your purpose even when the only reason your allowed to be there is freedom of speech...And I’m singing to no one... I packed all my stuff... I looked up to the sky and I was like YOUR MOVE....I will literally never leave, so if you want me to be here in 50 years, just like singing, because this is the only opportunity I have... then I’ll be here. It’s your call. I do believe there is something about stating your intention and putting it out in the universe where your going and the secretary at the desk of the universe says, OH, NO, HE’S SERIOUS, HE’S NOT GOING TO LEAVE. WE SHOULD PROBABLY GIVE IT TO THIS GUY...After that, I went home and I wrote that song. But I do believe...my mom had passed away, I had zero dollars, I was living in a pretty crappy apartment, and so out of that...if you hear that guy saying KEEP YOUR HEAD UP then you’re like ok, I’ll listen to what he has to say.” - From the  @lewishowes podcast The School of Greatness🎧 Download it now!! 👍#greaterpath #motivated #schoolofgreatness #inspiration #storiesmatter #greatness

Old photo but the statement is still just as true! ONE. HAS.

Daniel worked as a day-laborer for 11 years in a shoe making shop before learning about a business loan program offered through the CarePoint that his daughter, Elnata, attends. Daniel now has his own business and has six people working for him, most of whom are fathers with children in the Merkato CarePoint in Ethiopia!

After years of struggling to fill a void and feeling completely unlovable, Candice realized her life was meant for more. Even with the pain still present, she knows that there is power in owning your past and working through the hurt and shame. Her greatest desire is to help others by sharing her story. •

Candice says, “This story has encompassed a lot of pain. But through that pain, I found a beauty that I would have never found, had I not been dragged through the dirt. If I can help one girl see that she is enough, that she can fight and that God can carry her and love her, I will have not suffered in vain.”

David Bernard Matson was born in 1902. I never got to meet him. I did know my great-grandmother, Esther. They were married in 1919. The roaring 20's didn't offer them the same prosperity as so many. But, they had a beautiful growing family, and he loved them. He worked hard as a coal miner.  In 1934, their 8th and last child was born.  On December 27, 1937, at the age of 35, while working in the mine, David was killed in a premature blast, leaving Esther with 8 children to care for during the depression.

I cannot imagine what that must have been like for her.  I often think about the strength she must have had to take on the life she suddenly found herself living.  Esther wrote about her own grandmother, Mary, a hardworking Irish woman.  She said, "I learned how to work and do what is right." I imagine working alongside her as a child prepared her to be a single mother.  Mary was a widow for 25 years.  I'm sure her experiences lifted Esther in this trial.

My grandmother, Janet, Esther's daughter, also found herself suddenly a widow with 2 children still at home.  Esther was still living, and I imagine that she offered great personal wisdom and guidance.

My mother worked hard to support our family of 9 when my father's health disabled him.  She is a woman of great courage and strength. 
In my own trials, I have drawn on the strength of these generations of women. They taught each other, lifted, and stood tall in the face of difficult circumstances.  Life was far from a walk in the park, but they put one foot in front of the other and thrived.  Knowing the stories of my past has blessed and strengthened me, allowing for hope and courage .  Do you know your stories?  Do you share them with your children?

Know your stories.  You need them.  If you need help finding them, contact FAMIPower.com.

Giving to Mercy Project means helping cover the cost of a microloan (only $400!) for one of our reunited families. Microloan businesses are based on the skills and talents of the parents as well as the region in which they live. We've helped develop businesses of mat weaving, cooking, hair styling, and others into success and savings as a result of working with parents and providing training when they need it. With just a little extra boost, these families are thriving and building sustainable income for themselves. If you'd like to join our year-end giving and support our microloan program, you can do so at mercyproject.net/donations.

Wondering who the girl behind the curtain is? Time for not-quite-Friday introductions! ✋ I'm Megan, a mid-20-something girl who passionately believes stories can make a bolder, more kind world. Although I enjoy traveling (especially to beaches), I feel I understand so much more about the world through someone's story. I'll always be a Philly girl at heart, and I'm very bad at being a minimalist. I love apartment life with my hubs, but already adore the puppy we'll get eventually in the next 10 years.

I'd love to hear: what's something that lights you up today? 📷: @leahjudwayphotography

I've been doing a truckload of planning as I prepare to step fully into 2018 with massive action towards my dreams. 
With each goal I write down, I ask myself: "What would the woman I aspire to be do?".... the answer reveals the plan. 
I believe. I believe. I believe. #whatisyourstory #lightbeamerscommunity

Tonight is for December Daily(ish) catch-up and here’s the mess to prove it 😂
I have a rough idea of the stories I’d like to document for the first week and have photos ready to go after printing most at home and ordering a few enlargements from Walgreens (PS: 50% off today with code ELFPICS)

Listening to other’s stories allows us to see the world from their perspective. It’s proven to actually change our brain chemistry by releasing oxytocin, which allows us to feel more compassion and empathy, in turn fostering more prosocial behavior. Issa miracle!

"I thought l was losing my virginity in an emotionally risk-free way," our guest columnist writes. It wasn't. 
Admitting when you have wronged another requires honesty, bravery and humility. This bold piece is now live on StoryOn, encouraging a new perspective on "risk-free" relationships and all the cultural norms that can turn out to be more hurtful than helpful.
