Everyone has a story.
You, too, have a story—as important as any in the book. I invite you to tell it, even if you think it’s not worth telling. Initially, many of the people in this book didn’t understand why I would want to include them in this book, but once they began writing, they realized just how amazing their lives are.

I invite you to take a chance: write your story. I would love to hear it!
Start every sentence with “Imagine…” and see yourself as never before. Writing your “Imagines…” can be invigorating, healing, even liberating. There is freedom in claiming who you are. Forget grammar and let the words flow. Write it and read it to yourself. Be proud. Feel the emotion of your life. Whatever comes up, embrace it, and let any negative emotion flow out.
Claim your story.
If you’d like, submit it to me. For stories you give permission to publish, each week I will post one on the website, with your name or anonymously as you request. I welcome all stories, even those for my eyes only.
Telling your story is a beautiful journey. Imagine…
I invite everyone to return, to experience the amazing stories of others, to expand your capacity to see the heroes all around us—and to witness the hero within.
“Writing my Imagines gave me the ability to cry tears of joy,
accept myself for everything I am, and love myself for the worst parts of me.
Telling my story gave me that happiness I had been craving for so long.”
Jason Landers, The Imagine Project: Alive
“It was liberating to write my Imagines.
It felt like I was shedding light on some of the things I had been through and
it made it easier to put my past behind me.”
Troy Feldpouch, The Imagine Project: Freedom
“Writing my Imagines helped me to believe in myself again.
I will never forget where I came from or the courage it took to get where I am.”
Karina Sanchez. The Imagine Project: Courage
“Writing my imagines created a whirlwind of emotions and thoughts within;
I am grateful for the opportunity to share my Imagines and
to honor the Imagines of all others who can identify with any piece of my story.
Amazingly liberating to my soul!”
Andy Losh. The Imagine Project: Gift
