It has been said that the best way to teach people is by telling a story. Even Jesus taught using every day stories
My maternal grandmother, Mbuya, inspired my love for story-telling. I still remember how my siblings, my cousins and I would huddle around her after dinner, as the fire in the centre of the hut started to die down, and she would have us all enthralled and captivated by her stories. As kids, we found her stories funny and entertaining, but as I look back on them now as an adult, I can see how inspiring they really were. There was always a moral to the story. Her stories always ended with someone doing good, becoming better, or someone inspiring others to be better citizens of our world.
It was in those early stages of my life that my Mbuya passed on to me her love for storytelling, and I hope that my stories will also inspire & encourage those who read them.
