From 2006 to 2010 in eight week sessions,
Alison Barker had the privilege of facilitating a life-story
workshop at Church of the Redeemer, where each of 12 - 14
writers read a story from their own life,
of no longer than five minutes long when read aloud. Signed
papers of confidentiality kept it a safe place to share. They
Sierpina's work in which Alison was trained to
use at UTMB's
program, Galveston. They left a legacy for families and friends.
It was a wonderful time, and the class continues meeting in 2011
at Peggy's and Nancy's. The stories have not been necessarily
"religious" but in God's life, all our life belongs to Him, for
those who have ears to hear. They left encouraged, awed and
inspired. Each writer listened attentively, to make one positive
comment on each person's writing - not the content - so they granted
each person dignity and appreciation. The Scriptures are full of
real life stories of God and His dealings.

writers have chosen to share publicly.
