From Curious Listener to Family Storyteller in 10 Days

Have you always wanted to capture your stories for your family and yourself?

Not sure where to start or how to tell a good story?

This 10-day challenge will help you remember, tell, and preserve stories about your most prized possessions.

Become a family storyteller in 10 days

This Free 10-day challenge will help you go from listening to other family members share their stories to sharing and saving stories about your most prized possessions.

Each day you will receive a storytelling tip to help you start or improve your storytelling skills. You will also receive a prompt that inspires you to share a story about an item you’ve kept for years.

Share your stories with a person or a pet!

You'll tell your family member, a friend, a fellow challenger, (or maybe even your dog!) a 3-minute story about one of your most prized possessions. We'd also like you to record the story, but it's not necessary to share the recording online with the other challengers unless you want to.

Once you've told the story, you'll come back to our private group and answer the daily challenge questions so we know you completed the assignment.

Support and encouragement

Along the way, you'll have support and encouragement from us and the other challengers who want to connect with their families as much as you want to connect to yours!

So what do you say? Are you ready to share your stories of your treasured possessions and start connecting with your family on a different level? We'd love for you to join us! The challenge begins soon so click on the button below to register or to join the wait-list.

What Our Challengers Say . . .

A great big Thank You to Michelle for this awesome challenge. I loved every minute of it! Learned a lot. And will continue to follow and see what else she may come up with. I am pleased that I did not have be too concerned, with grammar and punctuation. All the stuff that made me hesitant to write. This has inspired me to keep writing, and has made my husband very happy to see he getting his wish—my stories in recordings and writings. I truly appreciate each and every story I have read. What I have taken away from the group, is that even though we may all be different....we are alike in many ways too, with our love and passion for our family and friends.

Michelle, thank you for this 10-day challenge. I’ve been pushed to think about my possessions and remember the stories associated with them. I have shared them with my high school friends and will also share with my parents when I next see them. I wasn’t sure what types of stories would be interesting enough to qualify. But I was surprised at how quickly my stories came to me. They almost wrote themselves!

- Adele Madden, challenger

- June Butka, challenger

Michelle Beckman this has been a gift. Doing this was a lot of fun. I’m going to have to buy a new computer with a lot of memory to store all of these stories.
