The Story of Your Life
Everyone has a story, and there is no substitute for hearing a story from its source. We believe that history is a special gift that needs to be passed on before it is lost forever. We capture and package your lived experiences into quality keepsake books, full of beautiful words and pictures that celebrate the story of your life.
Our Story of Why
A few years ago I lost two of my amazing grandparents within months of each other. At their funerals, I was surprised to learn about many incredible stories, achievements and accomplishments that I never knew about… I had so many questions, but it was too late to ask them. Since then, I have met countless other people who have experienced the same thing.
So I started researching where people could go to not only share their stories, but have them packaged in a creative and engaging way. Sadly, I couldn’t find anything appropriate. It all led to writing or recording your own memoirs, which is time consuming, strenuous, and leaves you with a thesis of raw information…
This is why we created My Word. We combine care and creativity into our brand to ensure our clients enjoy the six-step story sharing process, and come away with results that exceed all expectations.
Our aim is to help you memorialise your unique story, and preserve your family history so you can connect with generations to come.
