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.

The Bible circa 75-76
Won for memorizing the 23rd Psalm

I don’t know how this made it through shelters, foster care, incarceration, a fire, homelessness, a complete loss of faith and any of the other small calamities I’ve had and created in my life.

While I may not always agree with the words; “The word” has been a light unto my feet and a light unto my path.
