God has a story for your life . . . Debbie Macomber has inspired readers with her stories for decades. Now for the first time, she helps each of us to understand that life is a story, part of a grand narrative that God is writing day by day. With chapters that cover the importance of literary elements such as characters, setting, backstory, and conflict, Macomber uses the structure of a story to illustrate God's hand in our lives. Each chapter has a storytelling prompt-a searching question that will help frame our 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.
Once upon a time
discovering our forever after story

In the beginning
In a land far away
In the days
There once was a man
And he went by the name of
And in his heart
And it came to pass
He tucked the treasure deep in his sack
He picked up the sword
And there he met
An old man sat by the side of the road
The unseen world gathered
Trouble was bound to come
And the challenge of his life loomed
And he was never the same again
Happily ever after
And if he's not gone, he lives there still.
