Connecting Families Through Stories

There was a time when families told stories around the kitchen table at dinnertime. But today family members are spread out across the country and across the world; add to that social distancing, and it’s gotten much more difficult to share our stories, our history, and what matters most to us. 

That is the reason for the increasing popularity of writing an autobiography and memoir. “We’re beginning to understand the power of story as a constant in a constantly changing world,” says Kathy Evans, personal biographer and Kirkwood resident. “Our family history is something we can hold on to, something that uplifts and strengthens us. Sharing our stories builds our connections with the family members we know and with descendants we may never meet.” 

But it can be a daunting task. That’s where Evans’ company, “Write for You” Life Stories comes in. She interviews clients over a period of months or longer (in person or on Zoom), scans photos, and adds a historical context. The story takes shape over time, and the storyteller has ample opportunity to review drafts and make changes. The result is a win-win: a powerful process for the storyteller and a priceless gift for the family.
