Your Life, Your Story is a practical and creative guide to setting down your own personal narrative. You may write your life story to gain perspective and insight, or simply to share with family, friends and future generations. It can even be an extraordinary journey in its own right.

•unlock and express your memories
•explore and describe your life-changing experiences
•develop a structure and a chronology for your story
•bring truth and authenticity to your narrative
