#STORY11 :: Matthew West & Angela Thomas

  • We met at a women’s conference.
  • I became a musician to tell my story through writing music.
  • So I asked for other’s stories. I had to cut off the submissions at 10,000.
  • People were sharing from these open vulnerable places.
  • 1 out of every 5 stories dealt with sexual abuse. There are things going on in the Christian community, and it isn’t talked about much, but it shouldn’t be happening.
  • I began to create folders of familiar topics of stories.
  • The abuse folder became the biggest folder stuffed with stories of women who’s innocence has been stolen from them.
  • When you surrender your life to God I don’t think the statistics have to apply anymore.
