Imagine 50 years from now there’s a child looking at their family tree. But instead of seeing names and dates, they see an entire bookshelf.
There’s a book of poems from their great grandpa. There’s the novel that grandma worked on for 10 years. There’s your book of memoirs with an intro chapter written just for them.
Your stories are incredibly important; not just for an audience today but for future generations. Stories tell us who a person is; what they're like, what they think about, what they care about. When you record your stories, you’re sharing yourself with friends and family, even when you’re no longer around.
