In Re-Creating a Life: Learning How to Tell Our Most Life-Giving Story, Dr. Diane Millis shows us how to author a new story for our lives.




Do you ever find yourself comparing the story of the life you wished you had lived with the life you are actually living? Each of us has a story that we tell ourselves about ourselves. Becoming aware of our inner narrative is crucial, because the story we tell ourselves, both consciously and unconsciously, has tremendous power over our thoughts, feelings, and actions. In many ways, this story defines our lives.

In Re-Creating a Life: Learning How to Tell Our Most Life-Giving Story, Dr. Diane Millis shows us how to author a new story for our lives.

  • Discover the story they are currently telling themselves;
  • Develop their capacity to re-create their life by exploring more life-giving stories;
  • Discern how to tell the story of what gives their life meaning, purpose, and joy.


Diane M. Millis, PhD, is an inspirational speaker, spiritual director, retreat facilitator, and consultant.

She is the author of Conversation–The Sacred Art and Deepening Engagement. She lives in Minneapolis and currently teaches at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities.


Each of our stories is a wave on the ocean of the universal story. And, like water, the shape of our narratives changes, dissolves and reforms, even as the essence retains something that is ever true. This book is an invitation to open our hands and allow new stories to emerge from new landscapes, even as we step up to consciously participate in our own process of radical renewal. Filled with lucid examples and practical exercises, Re-Creating a Life is a portal to liberation.

Through her own life journey, full of joy and struggles, Dr. Diane Millis shows us how storytelling can be a daily spiritual endeavor and practice through which we get to the heart of who we are and discover what is most important to us. Thanks to the practical nature and relatable approach of this book, I would highly recommend it as a useful handbook for caregivers, such as parents and teachers, as well as anyone else who is eager to explore the transforming power of storytelling.
