Stories to Grow By Helps Connect Families 

Stories to Grow By has been offering meaningful stories since the 1990's and our tales reach far and wide. That has always been part of our goals at Stories Grow By: reach as many people as possible and impact them positively with our stories. Often we are very kid-centric, teacher focused, and parent oriented BUT our stories always have wide appeal; sharing powerful tales of human ethics and connection.

We wanted to take a brief moment and highlight a wonderful testimonial that was shared with us from one of our community members. This message comes from Nathan and it is truly heartening. Read Nathan's message below:


[I have been] married now for 61 years, my wife has been disabled for 35 years [after suffering from] a series of five strokes. I was able, using...computer technology, to rebuild some of her brain’s function. Unfortunately she is now in mid-stages of Alzheimer’s and I am losing ability to reach and interact with her.

Searching for some way to stay in contact, I stumbled on your fantastic website, “Stories to Grow By”. Almost unbelievably your site and the superb collection [of stories] you have assembled have permitted me to reconnect with her to a much greater degree than before. I write to thank you for opening pathways that were closed and would have remained so we’re it not for your site."

Needless to say we are extremely touched that our stories were able to make such an impact. We thank Nathan for the message and wish their family all the best.

Stories to Grow By Begins Donation Campaign

As we look ahead to 2022, we are asking for your direct financial support. The reality is our offerings and content require financial support to keep everything running. We will not run ads on our website as they do not align with the core foundation of Stories to Grow By. Therefore, we rely on donations and generous gifts to keep us going. 

We are asking all our subscribers, no matter what size, to support us financially if you can. Even a small donation would mean so much and help us forge ahead and realize our goals. So, if Stories to Grow By helped you in some way or provided some value to you this past year, please consider contributing.

Weighing the Elephant: January 2022 Featured Story

Weighing The Elephant

Story Summary

The Emperor of China is gifted an Elephant; an elegant animal that no one in China had ever seen before. Soon after, all in the Emperor's court were raving about the Elephant - sparking a heated debate on how big the Elephant was and how much it exactly weighed.

Along came the Emperor's Son to help settle the debate. Using intuition and logic, the Emperor's Son makes a ingenious suggestion for everyone to get their answer.
