Seeing the Story

When we know each other's stories, we can truly know each other. We can understand each other. We can love each other. Every person, every family has a story. What's yours?

See the Stories

Those strangers you see or hear about…
they’re people just like you. They love, they mourn, they rejoice. Their families were on a journey,
and so are they.

Just like you.

Share Your Story

Maybe you want to write it out…
maybe you want to chat on the phone…
maybe you want to record a video.

You can choose whichever method you prefer!

Share the Opportunity

As you browse others’ stories, you may be remembering one you heard from a friend or neighbor…one you know needs to be shared.

Forward this information to them, and tell them how eager you are to hear their story.

Our Mission & Vision

It began with a fictional character…

As an author, Seeing the Story founder Roseanna M. White fully believed in the power of story. The more books she published, the more she began hearing from readers who also had stories to tell ~ stories of their family members or their own life that mirrored something that happened in her fictional tales. As she edited one of her novels, she decided to extend an open invitation to her readers to share their stories. But it didn’t take her long to realize this was a bigger idea than one novel or one invitation. Preseving families’ stories is a worthwhile goal, capable of changing us all.
