dmiller.pngSecond Annual Donald Miller’s Storyline Conference at PLNU
Feb. 27-March 1 , 2014
What Makes Storyline Different? We know you’re constantly being sold inspiration and formulas to achieve success. We don’t have a problem with success, but we have a problem with the number of “successful” people in the world who aren’t happy. Storyline is a conference in which each attendee creates a unique life plan that will help them experience a deep sense of meaning. Storyline focuses on what psychologists and theologians agree will give a person a sense of purpose, clarity and contentment in life.
