ABOUT STORIESX8

STORIESX8 is a small group experience that guides women through the journey of sharing their stories, finding freedom in the process, and living the lifestyle of confession.

We all have a past. Some are more traumatic than others. Oftentimes, the situations we’ve experienced are so hard, so challenging, that we become stuck in life. We become silent. We hide our history. We live in darkness.

But there is a better way. A way that brings a new level of freedom. Confession. STORIESX8 is an eight-week curriculum, designed for groups of eight women, that will give you a new view of confession. One that is rooted in grace, not guilt. We want women everywhere to learn what it means to live a lifestyle of confession and change themselves from the inside out. STORIESX8 is the guide woman need to overcome darkness and tap into the power of confession.

OVERVIEW

Each week of the small group walks you through a topic that influences your ability to share your story and reveals the lies keeping us stuck. There is a weekly reading, insightful videos from Anne, and most importantly, the opportunity for one woman to share her story each week.

What Other Women Are Saying

“I had no idea the impact sharing my story and hearing the stories of other women would have on my life. The simple yet difficult act of opening up is much like finding out your test results all came back negative and a great weight is lifted off of you. No one is there to judge you or even to fix you.”

SARAH

"I've learned how to replace feelings of anxiety, worry, and depression with feelings of peace, joy, and hope. The sweet taste of freedom and victory is, oh so much better than the bitter dregs of bondage and defeat!"

KATE

“I have learned to meet people where they are. Now, I truly understand what grace is and I extend it as much as I can. When you hear someone’s story it is impossible to be judgmental towards them because you understand them better.”

VAL

“I have been working for years to overcome and repair the wounds of my abusive childhood. Telling my story in a safe environment has been the most freeing thing I've ever done. I have learned that my story defines who I am & I'm proud of who I am.”

F.A.Q.
How many women can participate in the small group?
We’ve learned through trial and error that STORIESX8 works best with eight women at a time (1 facilitator + 7 participants). The workbook is designed to be completed over eight weeks, which also allows each of the eight women an opportunity to share her story. Additional women extend the length of the group, which leads to a loss of interests.

If you have a large group that you’d like to do this with, we recommend starting together to watch the videos and then breaking into smaller groups for the remainder of the time. (It’s important that each group has a private place to meet.) If you have questions about how to organize and run the group with larger amounts of women, please contact our team at hello@brokensilence.co.

Who is this group for?
STORIESX8 is for every woman that wants to discover the freedom that comes from a lifestyle of confession. There are no age restrictions. We’ve had women from ages 20 to 75 participate. The purpose is to teach women how to share their story and set themselves free. That concept is needed for young and older woman alike.
Do you have resources for group facilitators?
Yes, each kit comes with a facilitators guide. In addition, we will continue to add helpful resources on the Facilitators Resource page.
Do I have to buy an entire kit of eight?
No! You can purchase workbooks one at a time. Keep in mind there is a discount for purchasing a kit.
How do I access the weekly videos and additional resources?
You can access the videos and resources here, by clicking the “Log In” button in the main header at the top of each page, or by clicking “facilitator resources” in the footer menu on any page.
