“We’re excited to bring Storyline to Belmont University and help registrants put their life on a map so they can know where they’re headed,” said Donald Miller, “When you know your story, you’ll better understand your purpose, and you’ll live with greater efficiency and impact.”
Miller will guide the registrants through five sessions and accompanying modules to help them map their life story. In addition to the sessions, registrants will be treated to appearances from a number of special guests, including:
Christy Ridings, the associate university minister for Belmont University, said, “Having participated in the Storyline conference in Portland last year, I recognized its potential for the collegiate generation as they reflect upon their own lives within the context of narrative. Donald Miller is a long-time friend of Belmont, and he actually helped launch our Living a Better Story initiative, which challenges students to think differently about their world and to live to their fullest potential. We are excited to welcome Donald Miller back to Belmont.”
