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.

Epiphany today. Saw God in science.

I was in Chemistry. The professor started explaining the Law of Conservation of Energy/Mass/Matter/etc. Nothing is ever created or destroyed, only transformed. This reminded me that a soul is never created or destroyed. Our souls are eternal. We are eternal. No one who has ever lived is ever really gone, just transformed into something new.
