Transform Pain into Love, through the Mystery of Love Revealing.
“For now we see, as in a mirror. Then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part, then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
–1 Corinthians 13:12
Act I: “For now we see a reflection, as in a mirror…”
Act I’s Reflection Program, inspired by “For Now We See a Reflection, as in a Mirror,” is a program that provides a way for you to process your pain into story through fiction-based-on-a-true-experience journaling. You will fuse Artist-Inspired Journaling with the craft of narrative storytelling to reveal the hero’s character, cultivate compassion, and discover the hero’s pursuit. At The Love Story, we believe it’s important to know where you have been to know where you are going. You will discover the why of your present by first understanding the what of your past.
Act II: “…then we shall see
face to face…”
Experience catharsis through the power of face to face.
Connect with a kindred artist through the art and craft of multimedia Journal-artism.
Learn how to pitch, produce, journal from person-to-person artist interviews you conduct, and contribute your story into our serialized and anthologized Love Story Journals.
“…for now I know in part,
then I shall know fully,
even as I am fully known.”
(1 Corinthians 13:12 NIV)
The Love Story Showcase: Break Your Heart Open
As a Showcase Producer, you will be taken through the steps of producing your own showcase in your local community. We show you how to gather indie and featured artists, partner with social cause organization and local businesses, and inspire people to engage in intimate conversations through audience artist-inspired journaling during the showcase. Most importantly, you will break your own heart open by telling your story through this platform. You are the host, the mirror, and the container of the party.

Power of 13
“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all that I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
