HGBM has the privilege of sharing stories from individuals who have been through traumatic experiences and, by the grace of God, came through them to fight another day. Whether that trauma is caused by an addiction, abuse, or illness, the courage to write your story and share it with others who may also be suffering and struggling is something for which we commend our authors.
In these days of uncertainty, we understand that the level of fear that exists regarding things like COVID-19 has been exascerbated by the mainstream media's selective coverage of the virus and it's impact worldwide. The same can be said for the coverage of the conflict between Russia and the Ukraine. Sometimes, what we hear or read can do more damage than the actual thing that we are reading or hearing about. This is why we are focused on providing the best stories for our readers; stories that are centered on faith and how God leads us through times of trial. We try our best to provide materials that are not tainted by the popular media, but that come from the hearts and minds of real people who have experienced real struggles. With this in mind, we ask you the following questions: What are you healing from? Do you have a story that you'd like to tell?
Higher Ground Books & Media is looking for stories about your experiences over the past few years of dealing with the repercussions of being locked down or quarantined. We are NOT looking for political views or bashing of one side or the other. We ARE looking for stories about how you've personally been impacted by disease, lack of healthcare accessibility, loneliness, being unable to visit loved ones, being unable to attend funerals for those who have passed, losing your job, dealing with unemployment or unfair practices at work that have prevented you from being able to stay gainfully employed, student issues such as inability to attend classes or graduation or prom, etc. What are you dealing with as a result of the things that are going on in the world and how has your faith helped you to navigate all of it? We want to hear from you. And if possible, we would like to share your story here on HGBM.
If you'd like to submit a story, please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions should be around 2,000 words. We'll take a look and let you know if we'd like to feature your story here.
Thank you so much for visiting our blog today! We hope you will take a look at the books we offer in our shop and that you'll be able to find something that helps you to feel empowered to cope with your own struggles. May God bless you and keep you!
