I WANT TO WRITE YOUR STORY

Minnesota

PHOTOS CAN BE AWE-INSPIRING. Like this one of my daughter and her daughter, some photos do indeed tell a thousand words. Yet, a photo rarely captures the entire story.

Your life story is more than a single picture produced by the click of a camera. A well-written life story not only records events and times and places, it also inspires the reader why those events and times and places matter.

Want your story told but need a trusted professional to write it for you? Let’s talk.

JANET CLARK SHAY, Writing Through the Lens of a Christian Worldview "For Such a Time as This"

WHY YOU MAY NEED A LIFE STORY

 

WHILE EVERYONE has a life story, not everything about your life needs—or even should be—told. There are numerous reasons for well written life stories. Here are some of them: 

  • To leave your family legacy
  • "What I'd like you to know about me." (Leaving your testimony for the next generation) 
  • To honor an individual
  • To share your Christian faith
  • To focus on a skill or achievement
  • Story content for your website
  • Business related narrative for audio/visual promos
  • Story text for your special event
  • Narrative to complement your travel photos
  • Text for Christian missionary video promos

 

 

"WORDS: SO INNOCENT AND POWERLESS AS THEY ARE, AS STANDING IN A DICTIONARY, HOW POTENT FOR GOOD AND EVIL THEY BECOME, IN THE HANDS OF ONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO COMBINE THEM."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne
