Do you have a favorite story, one you enjoy sharing with your family and friends?
Everyone loves a good story, something we never truly outgrow. We need stories to inspire, challenge, and delight us, to help us define who we are and our place in this world. I love being a story teller who who aspires to encourage others. This is a major reason for my new podcast, “Great Stories in American History with Rebecca Price Janney.” I believe there's so much to learn from these amazing, faith-based accounts of how those who came before us overcame many hardships to forge our wonderful nation.
A few days ago I inaugurated this new way to tell the stories I’ve cherished for over twenty years of teaching and publishing. The very first podcast is about the Revolutionary War’s Battle of Brooklyn, which took place in August 1776. (Two of my ancestors served as officers in that conflict, so I literally had “skin in the game.”)
To listen to that incredible story of how the newly-birthed United States was able to survive a crushing defeat, you can follow any of these links. And I hope you’ll join me weekly for a new Great Story from American history.
