I can remember the day I sat on my grandmothers steps waiting on my father to come and the look on her face when she yet again had to deliver the bad news. The words that came out of her mouth would change my life forever.


I can remember the moment I was 17 years old, sitting on a cold cushioned table with a thin white sheet of paper underneath me. The words that came out of the nurses mouth would change my life forever.


I remember the day I experienced my very first crushing heartbreak, confused as to why someone I thought I loved would tell me that he no longer loved me. The words that came out of his mouth would change my life forever.


I remember the moment I was called into the office of a job I thought God designed just for me, to be fired for a reason that’s still not clear to this very day. The words that came out of his mouth would change my life forever.


I can continue this, “I remember when” mantra using loose leaf paper, covering the front and back, sitting on the floor of a neighborhood Wal-Mart and would need them to order more because I used it all–and I’m almost certain that you could too.  My stories started in 1980, all molding and creating the woman I am today. I realized years ago that my stories were my foundation. they are what I rely on when I ask myself, “Who Am I?” They are what I learn and grow from throughout the seasons of my life. They are my strength.


HerStory was founded because I believe that a woman’s story is what makes her unique. HerStory is what’s directly attached to our purpose. HerStory is how we relate to this world and the people around us. HerStory is a community that empowers you to share your story, embrace your purpose, and create a platform to live your best life.  What is your story? What is your purpose?
