Our stories are important. Sometimes I forget the value of my own story. It is much easier to highlight the stories of others — of those who are brave, worthy of honor. In my years as a journalist, I used to have to convince people that their story was worth telling — that their experience was something others needed to hear. The truth is, there is value in all of our stories. They all need to be told and retold. Stories empower both the teller and the hearer. Stories can change us. That is why I compiled The Modern Magnificat. The book is a collection of the stories of 23 women who have been called to ministry. Each story invites us into the fears, pains, and joys that accompany each individual’s journey. I hope the book will empower you to tell your own story — whether or not you are called to be an ordained minister.
