Your Number Story

Number Story Video Hits 1 Million Views

The mission of Number Story is to:


  1. Create awareness that ACEs and a toxic stress response may affect our lives as adults.
  2. Provide a deeper level of knowledge and understanding of the wide-ranging impacts of ACEs.
  3. Empower us to prevent, reduce, and heal from ACEs and toxic stress — for ourselves, the children in our lives, and in our communities.


This video — which we created for the Number Story launch — speaks to all three and sets the foundation for learning, understanding, exploration, and healing. And it’s why, within just a short span of time, over a million people have viewed it in its entirety.


We all have a Number Story. Our childhood experiences have shaped our lives, but they don’t get to define our future. We get to write the next chapter.

Healing is a Rollercoaster, and that’s okay

Have you heard the saying Healing is not linear? Healing does not always look like we envisioned. It has ups and downs and is an ongoing process; Healing requires us to feel and make sense of our emotions and thoughts and consciously decide to create healthier, sustainable relationships with ourselves and others.
