Not into writing? Discover audio and video programs to bring your authentic voice to your family.
Your Words, Your Life Story will help you spark and share your memories.

Preserving the experiences of the past for future generations is important. They will wonder as they peruse the stories how you ever lived without a TV, computer, microwave (or whatever appliance they use in the future.)
The story of your life, the struggles, the joys, the accomplishments, will be what the next generations understand. Your account will be a guide to help them through their own lives.
Start now to put together the stories that make up your life story, a treasured family keepsake.
J.Q.’s Bio--Using her storytelling skills, JQ provides chills and giggles in her published mysteries and information and enrichment in articles featured in books, magazines, newspapers, and online magazines.
J.Q. taught elementary school for several years and never lost the love for teaching passed down from her teacher grandmother and mother. She satisfies that aspect of her character by presenting workshops on Creative Writing and Writing Your Life Story. Her passion is to teach and encourage folks to share their life stories with their family and be an eye witness to history, as well as a guide for future generations.
When J.Q.  isn’t writing, she enjoys photography, playing Pegs and Jokers board games, and traveling with her husband. They spend winters in Florida and summers up north camping and hunting toads, frogs, and salamanders with her four grandsons and granddaughter.
AND...in the spirit of the holiday, J.Q. will be gifting a free copy to a randomly drawn commenter. Drawing for U.S. residents.

As one writing a family history book, I could have used a few of these from past generations. I do have my grandmother's journals, very different from mine, but give a picture of the day. This is a wonderful idea.
