As a legacy writer I’m passionate about helping people share their stories.  I hope this blog inspires you to start writing.  About yourself or perhaps a loved one … a journal, a chapter, even a page.  Because the memories we capture are the greatest treasure we can give ourselves and the next generation.  Put on a pot of coffee, sit down and have a conversation with your mom, dad, grandma or grandpa about their life journey.  You’ll be amazed  Read the Post Every life has a story to tell
