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.

Faith replaces sorrow with everlasting happiness.

by NekaFallen on April 15, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I suffered from major depression for over a year. It was recently that I learned happiness comes from within. In order to become happy, you must have faith in yourself. I had an encouraging voice in my head. The voice offered me a helping hand. Thanks to that voice, I found happiness. Faith replaced my sorrow with everlasting happiness. :)
