Write 31 Days circa October 2015
There is something every single one of us keeps inside out of fear of what others may think. Maybe it's a choice you've made that has dramatically shifted your life, or a personal belief that doesn't align with what you were raised to believe or the organized religion you subscribe to. It is because of this I chose to craft a series of confessions written anonymously by 31 friends. I wanted to create an opportunity for (mostly) Christians - current, former, questioning - to share a confession they don't feel the freedom to speak aloud for fear of being judged or outcast.
Each piece is written by someone I know and care about; someone who chose vulnerability and invited me on their journey. Each piece is honesty at its finest. Part of being a collector of stories and words is to honor authenticity even if I might not fully agree.
As we hold to our own versions of faith, and religion, we should not forget there are very real people behind these confessions. I hope this series inspires you not to fear sharing your journey with others, and that you would be encouraged to practice being open-hearted towards those whose lives and beliefs don't align with your own.
