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.

I was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1968, but grew up in a small town outside of the city. As a child I attended New River Elementary School, Deer Valley Jr. High, Deer Valley High and then entered the US Army. After completed a 3 year term of service I got back to a normal civilian life, fell in love with my beautiful wife, got married in 1992 and entered the wonderful life of parenting in 2000. We have two children a girl (9) and a boy (7). Life for me is great.
