The stories that are labeled as 'TRUE' are done so to the best of our knowledge, but without full proof of the fact in many cases. However, ALL stories and messages are provided because of their uplifting content, whether they're true or not. Many movies we've watched over the years are totally untrue, and yet we watched them for the great uplifting spirit they gave us - especially if it had a happy ending. And, as an old friend once said, "Never let the truth interfere with a good story."

So, please read and share these stories provided by at your own discretion. For authenticity, you can always check with our friends at or accepts no liability for any misprints, typos, or misinformation acquired for public display at this site. Thank you for your understanding!

Also - Many of the stories used here are used with permission from the author. However, we cannot grant permission for reuse of any of these stories from this site, as they are not ours to give or grant.

Lastly - Many of the stories used here (emailed to us or we come across them) are listed with "Author Unknown." If you happen to know the author's name to whom credit should be given (for any stories in our collection), please contact us with that information so we can keep our "Inspiring Stories" accurate.
