You’ve led a full and interesting life and
want to tell your stories, but where to start?
A Personal Account of Your Remarkable Life
With a lifetime of memories, it’s hard to forage through all your experiences to find the ones that truly inform your life perspective. Learn how to go beyond the chronological transcription of life events, beyond the broad
strokes of career, interests, and pop culture. Learn how
to put into words the stories of when you persevered
through personal struggles, or how you experienced smiles,
tears, and laughs.
We’ve all lived through times of great change,
but do your kids know how you felt about it? Will your
grandkids understand what was important to you,
The Guided Autobiography method helps you write
your story, two pages at a time. Learn how to evoke
memories of events once known but seemingly filed away
and forgotten. Write the stories that nobody has
heard before, and add more depth to stories you’ve
shared aloud but never wrote down. Guided
Autobiography has been researched and developed
by Dr. James Birren over the past 40 years as a method
for helping people document their life stories.
I am a trained instructor in the Birren method and
would love to guide you on this extraordinary journey.

“It reinforces that although we all have different beginnings that we all have similar values, finding love and appreciation for what we have been given. Each person has a distinct voice.”
