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.

Love conquers; fight the good fight.

My husband and I had some tough times in the past few years. We have been through a miscarriage, the passing of both of our fathers, illnesses and a plethora of mistakes that caused each other pain. We still loved each other through it all even though it was not easy. Because of all of our struggles together, it has made our love stronger. I thank God for not letting either of us give up on one another.
