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.

Cradle,life, Heaven still tenderly gaze

by Debb on May 5, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

As a child I know I was a huge challenge for my mother. No matter how many times I would create drama and put myself in comprimising situations she always had the same tender gaze toward me. When I hitchhiked cross country and engaged in drugs she prayed for me every day. I am alive because of her prayers. She saved my life with her prayers. Now that I am grown up and wise I can still sense her love even from Heaven and she is still saving me with the white light of Christ's help.
