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.

Boxes packed, tears cried, good-byes said

In 11 days I will leave the place I have lived as a missionary for the past two years. This is a hard move, from a culture I love and have embraced, back to the place I call home, that is so different now than it was when I left. But, who am I kidding - I'm different now too. Saying goodbye is hard, but not knowing what comes next is harder. But, no matter what - I know, my future is in the hands of the Lord who loves me and cares for me and is guiding me to the next step.
