Welcome to
Bright Story Shine

I'm so glad you're here.

This is a place where we can share and celebrate our stories of recovery and resilience without judgement and without shame.


Together, let's explore topics like:

Addiction , Mental health, and Trauma Recovery.

I've also got some incredible resources for your journey, including my new Substack Community: Circle of Chairs. If you are feeling stuck in your recovery or want to help others,

you are in the right place.

Meet Caroline.

Hey! I'm Caroline Beidler, the Founder and Managing Editor of Bright Story Shine.

I'm so glad you're here. You are the reason I created this storytelling platform.

Research shows that one of the best ways to reduce stigma (and motivate people to get the help they need) is to share stories.

Join the community. Listen. Share. Learn.



When we tell our stories in community, something amazing and

downright miraculous can happen.

We can heal.



What’s Your Bright Story?
