A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Little glimmers of God's big love.

After three consecutive miscarriages, my husband I and started the adoption process. I became pregnant again and later that year, birthed a healthy eight pound, eight ounce baby boy. Two and a half years later, I birthed another healthy eight pound, eight ounce baby boy! Through the pain of loss and the gain of life, our sons truly are little glimmers of God's big love.
