Deb Grahamabout this book: It’s a scary thought--What if you died before you told your life’s story, and your busybody sister-in-law decided to write it for you? Yes, she’s diligent, but she never really liked you, and she surely doesn’t know you as well as you know yourself. No one can tell your life’s story as clearly or as accurately as you can! Now’s the time, before it’s too late.
I've presented workshops on How To Write Your Story, and people are shocked to learn how easy it is, in just minutes a day! As you write, memories surface, and it it's addictive.
In only thirty short minutes a day, you can begin to tell your own history, drawn from your own memories. Thousands of people have done this, and found it compelling, even addictive. This short book makes it easy, with dozens of questions and memory-prompts, carefully designed to get you thinking, to aim your mind in a direction to record your own life history. As you begin, it’s as easy as any essay test you’ve ever taken. Easier, because you know the subject matter intimately---it’s about YOU.
Telling your story has more benefits than you can see! One, of course, is that your legacy will be honest and accurate, built from your own experiences, from your own viewpoint, not cobbled together by generations to come. Think what a treasure it would be for you to come upon your great-great-grandmother’s handwritten story, in her own words, in her own timeframe! Do you owe that gift to your own future posterity? Just think—the everyday wisdom now disdained by your teenagers will be cherished in years to come....but only if you write it down now.
