If there's one thing we are certain of at FamilyFiction, it's this: stories have the power to change people. They have a way of sticking with you, hanging around, invading your thoughts and helping you draw parallels to your own life. In the New Testament, Jesus used parables over and over to give his followers something to think about--something they could unpack, investigate, and examine in order to reach their own conclusions about faith and life.
And still today, this is what we do. As readers of fiction, we see ourselves in the characters. We empathize with their struggles and in turn, something happens to us. We change.
To celebrate the transformative power of story, FamilyFiction is launching a new monthly column, Better Than Fiction. We want all of our readers to share their perspective about how a novel reached past the pages and into their hearts.
Perhaps it was Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers or The Visitation by Frank Peretti; we want you to send us your 300-word short essay about how and why a particular novel changed your life.
