Writing Life Stories Gift Pack

“We are two cards in, having interviewed their grandmother in NZ twice this week. The kids take turns with one interviewing her and the other note taking. We have scheduled three more zooms with her next week and have a goal to complete the serious by the end of the school holidays. The children are enjoying hearing their Nanny’s interesting and at times, hilariously funny stories. I have no doubt that Nanny is enjoying their bonding session as well.”

Happy Writing Life Stories Gift family.

“We may well end up doing it as a live presentation as we’ve been recording our sessions so can use these to refer back to. We’re lucky in that Nanny is the gate keeper of a lot of the family history and she has also sent us some great photos and memorabilia to accompany her Life Story…”

“What we’ve found that has worked well is that I send her your card and link to your Workshop Video for each stage. She then comes to the Zoom well prepared. We also keep our zooms to 40 minutes so the children don’t tire. If it were me writing the story I’d probably just let it flow and be more organic but, I really want this to be from the children’s point of view. My daughter enjoys drawing and is excited about illustration parts of the story.”

“Documenting my dad’s life story is something that I have always wanted to do, but never had the time to do it and had no idea where to start. Felicity took care of everything!  The only thing we had to do was think about anything specific we wanted included in his life story and the rest was up to whatever my dad wanted to share. Dad was surprised at how much he enjoyed the experience. He found Felicity easy to talk to and whilst he was a bit nervous to start, soon felt comfortable and no doubt could have talked to her all day! The story that Felicity wrote was so wonderful. She used his words and expression and was able to craft it into a perfect reflection of my dad’s life. She even unveiled details of his life that I had never heard before! I am thrilled to have my dad’s life and memories captured in one place and it is something I will treasure forever.  PS Mum is next!!!”  

“Thank you so much Felicity, this is just what we envisioned and I’m sure it’s importance won’t be truly clear for many years to come yet, but we love Dad’s story! We appreciate your time, effort and patience.”
