Yes, indeed. Very helpful and winsomely told!
Excellent! Thanks for sharing. If I may, I'd add this bit of advice: "Don't apologize for using a personal illustration." Somewhere in days gone by, aspiring preachers were told not to refer to themselves in the sermon. Some of them actually took that advice to heart and passed it along to their friends. Those preachers succeeded not in making more of Jesus and less of self but in making themselves and their messages seem distant, aloof, leaving only the shadow of a human in the pulpit. If preaching is indeed "truth through personality," there's no need to apologize for sharing either one.
