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.

We celebrated family Christmas at my new house this weekend. This afternoon, as we thanked God for our meal, Dad chimed in with, "And thank you for this wonderful holiday with all of us together," and tears filled his eyes. I had to go hug him. It was a weekend with so many kinds of gifts.
