We know the power a story has to change a life.

We talk a lot about stories at Beautifully Flawed Foundation. It is often because we know the power a story has to change a life. Maybe it’s a story heard that inspires hope in a time that feels bleak, or a story told that brings purpose to a suffering that otherwise might seem senseless. We have had the privilege of helping many find the words to tell their story and truly find purpose and healing in doing so.
