Legacy writing is the invitation and the opportunity to reflect on your stories and the meaning they convey, to write from your heart about what truly matters in your life. These are the treasures you pass on to future generations, your beliefs, wisdom and blessings.
An ethical will is a document written to communicate values and wisdom, history, stories, and love from one generation to another. It preserves who you are and what matters most to you. It’s a way for you to be remembered.
“I am passionate about legacy writing and creating ethical wills because I have seen the gift it is to writers as well as their loved ones, whether shared in the midst of life or at the end. We are story telling/story catcher people who make sense of our lives and our place in the world through story and through story we are able to share our deeper selves, our souls.”
