SUNDAY DINNER STORIES | THE LIFE STORY SCHOOL

My mission is to forever connect families one story at a time.

I help grateful parents and grandparents save their life stories as books and playlists so all generations know they belong, have been heard, and will be remembered.

Let Them Hear Your Voice

How many times have you said, "I wish I could still hear [my loved one's] voice?" or maybe you've saved a voicemail from your loved one.

The voice is something that's nearly impossible to replicate in writing.

Your voice is your accent, your laugh, your pronunciation of certain words, and don't forget the heartfelt emotions that your voice can convey.

As we forget a loved one's voice, we feel like we're losing them completely.

Before It's Too Late

When I tell people what I do, they almost always say, "I wish I knew you before So-and-So passed away."

Their voices are filled with heartbreaking regret.

I can help you say (and save) what needs to be said before it's too late.

"Michelle knows exactly what to ask to help you say what you need to say. This has been extremely helpful to Rich and me. She is amazing at what she does. You feel like you have known her forever. So very thankful to Michelle."

ARE YOU READY?

I believe that deeper family connections come from conversation and a true understanding of each other's lives.

That means we need to share our stories authentically and often.

Do you know why people don't tell their stories?

Sometimes, it's because they are too humble to believe their story matters or

they believe their stories are too painful to tell.

But most often, people don't tell their stories because no one asked.

Well, on behalf of your family, I'm asking for your story, and I want to help you tell it just like you would at Sunday dinner. Are you ready to tell yours?

1:1 MEMOIR (BOOK & PLAYLIST)

"I have remembered things that I had forgotten and learned to appreciate what has taken place in my life. I learned so much about myself. I have a calmness about me; it’s almost like a religious experience, a new understanding."

- Donna Carter, author of I Can Dog-Paddle, But I'd Rather Float: Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter Who Learned to Let Go

"This process is worth the money even if we never publish a book. My mom has a new confidence since she started working with you. I can’t imagine how much work you put into her book. "
- Donna Carter's daughter
