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.

Against all odds, still happily married.

My wife and I come from very different religious backgrounds. She was Seventh Day Adventist and I a Pentacostal. My mother hated that I married and tried to break us up. Plagued by my depression and childhood issues, we travelled a rough road for several years. We took or vows seriously and with a lot of sweat and tears we've made it and are happier than we've ever been, looking forward to growing old together.
