Send us your miracle stories

By Vicki Hyatt | Nov 15, 2013


About six years ago, The Mountaineer asked readers to tell us about a happening in their life that could only be described as a miracle.

The first year, we were flooded with stories. Each and every one was pulled at your heart strings in some way. The second year, there were still stories, but not as many. By year three, it appeared the idea had run its course.

Perhaps people only wanted to share the “big” miracle — something that doesn’t come along every year, or even every decade. Maybe people were overlooking the everyday things that happen that could also be considered miracles, thinking they were too insignificant to share.

In any event, we believe there are more miracle stories out there and are hoping our readers will be willing to share them with our readers.

These stories can be anything from a life-changing occurrence to the simple, everyday things that happen to us that we may not realize is something to cause amazement and wonder.

Whatever your miracle, we believe it will be a story that can inspire, or maybe at least open the eyes of others to the wonderful things that can and have occurred in our county.

To share your miracle story, simple send it to us by mail, email or drop it by. Don’t worry about the grammar or flow of the story. We’ll work with you to make sure your miracle story is told in a way it will touch the lives of others. We’ll also need a photo of you, your family or something else that ties in with the miracle you are describing.

Take a few moments to think about the things in your life that have brought you to your knees in gratefulness, that have inspired you to live the rest of your life in a more meaningful way or, in essence, can be described simply with the term “miracle.”

Email stories and photos to and mail or drop them by The Mountaineer, 220 N. Main St., Waynesville, NC 28786. We’d like the stories as soon as possible, but submit them no later than Dec. 6 so we’ll have plenty of time to share them with our readers during the holidays.
