“What a blessing to have you on our campus at WinShape. We are so grateful for people like you who so generously give of their talents & abilities to influence others in such a positive way! Thank you for inspiring and challenging our staff…”

— Trudy Cathy White [WinShape Camps, Chick-fil-A]

O  ne of the greatest gifts a story has to give, is a lesson from a life you don’t have to live. Do you realize at this moment, you have a lesson from a story in your life that can profoundly make a difference in the lives of others? We want to hear that story and if chosen, publish it for everyone to read in our “Stories That YOU Tell” series. Pentastic Publishing has graciously agreed to publish at least one book a year from this series and we would like for you to be a part of that success. We are always looking for new stories and poems and hope you have some for us to consider. 

       The logistics of being published in a book is relatively easy. The hardest part of writing is within YOU. It can be very difficult to fight doubt, fear of rejection, and the thought that your story is not important.  I have found that people who are unwilling to take the first step will never be willing to take the second.  The first step is your choice and for you to do alone.  If you don’t do this, you have no one to blame but yourself.  But I assure you, you DO HAVE a story that tells a powerful lesson.  We’re not asking you to produce an abundant harvest of stories.  Just plant a seed and let it grow.  Now submit your story and we'll walk along side you while you tell YOUR story.

       Below you will find more of Thomas' stories and ones that have been selected for display or publishing. We hope you enjoy these lesson filled, true life stories and submit one of your own.

       Take a look at the list of our future book topics to see if you have a story or poem on a subject we are looking for and then please submit it to us.  If your story does not fall into one of our categories enter it under “other.”  We look forward to hearing YOUR story!
