Spoken Word Inspiration from Jon Jorgenson
In “Tell Your Story,” Jon says: “I did everything I could to hide the life I was really leading….to make sure that nobody knew and I was succeeding.” Then by eventually telling his story, he gave others permission to speak and tell their stories. No one is perfect. No one is free from sin and mistakes. And by sharing your story, you will find freedom and support.
When Jon first told his story, he discovered he was not alone.
“Somehow I opened my mouth and I spoke and I spoke and I spoke until I cried. And what happened next I’ll never forget instead of casting me out with their judgemental stares, after sharing my story, others started telling theirs. Everyone was struggling, everyone was weak, just needing someone to give them the courage to speak…Everyone has a secret that needs to be spoken. Everyone has a silence that needs to be broken. Someone has to be brave enough to share their walk.”
