Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether their children have asked them to recapture treasured moments, stories, and traditions, or simply to record valuable family information, many seniors are now sitting down to write about their lives. But how does one get started on such a daunting project?

Thatand#8217;s where writing coach Jennifer Basye Sander steps in. In Before I Go, Thereand#8217;s More You Should Know, she has developed one hundred questions to prompt fledgling memoirists and family historians on their way. From simple questions such as and#147;What was your favorite family vacation as a child?and#8221; to more thought-provoking ones such as and#147;What do you think happens to us after we die?and#8221; this journal-style book will allow writers to roam far and wide inside their own memories for stories to share, life lessons that were learned, and beliefs that grew over time. Sanderand#8217;s questions and prompts will help writers tell generations to come all about their childhood and teen years; their education, relationships, and marriage; their careers, religious experience, and involvement in their communities; their beliefs, values, and opinions; and much more.

Beautifully designed with full-color illustrations throughout, this book is a special place for parents to record the most significant reflections and remembrances of their lives, and it is sure be a treasured keepsake for their children and grandchildren for many years to come.
