In this study, 11 doctoral students and I as the course instructor employed a narrative framework to uncover our perceived truths about our experiences as we interacted, studied, pondered, and journeyed through a qualitative research methods course. Data were my chronologically ordered notes documenting my thinking and perceptions about my students and me, and the doctoral students' chronologically ordered email stories to their peers and to me. I analyzed my students' stories using a modified version of a narrative analytic approach. The inquiry illuminated the doctoral students' growth as researchers and highlighted the power of shared stories. Our narratives captured our lives, and illuminated our joys, worries, intentions, and beliefs.
