From one of America's favorite storytellers comes a heartwarming, inspirational book to help readers understand their lives as one continuous, never-ending story.
""What I didn't understand at that time was that not only would all my writing dreams come true (and even above and beyond anything I could have dreamed or imagined), but that I would come to see my own life as one grand story. That's what this book is about.""
Debbie Macomber has inspired readers with her stories for decades. Now for the first time, she helps us to understand that our lives "are" stories, part of a grand narrative that God is writing day by day.
With chapters that cover the importance of characters, setting, backstory, and conflict, Macomber uses the elements of a story to show how to understand our own lives better. Each chapter has a storytelling prompt--a searching question that will help frame your story--and a sidebar that pulls an idea out of the chapter and expands it with practical tips. "Once Upon a Time" shares Debbie's love of story and helps showcase the big picture of the story God is writing through us.
