We are Charlene and Melinda, identical twins born and raised in lower Alabama. Years ago Melinda had the idea to write a book about scars and I wrote a poem to go with it. We both could envision what the finished project looked like, but never got around to it. Now, years later we have tweaked the idea some and started a blog. The heart of the project is still the same tell the stories behind the scars. Scars have stories, even if they are emotional ones we can’t actually see. Stories have power and that changes lives. We want to help share those powerful stories with others. To go through something and think you are alone is the worst kind of loneliness. You. Are. Not. Alone. We pray that you read a story here that connects to your soul and touches your heart.
