Self-Guided Online Life Story Writing Course

Everything You Need to Write & Share Your Unique Life Story

If Only You Knew How to Capture the
Essence of Your Life in Words…

Writing about your life appeals to you but you don’t know where to start or how to pinpoint the unique experiences that influenced who you’ve become today.

Being self-motivated and on a personal growth path for years, you’ve achieved a great deal in life. But writing about your life feels daunting and overwhelming. If you only had the structure and support you needed to capture the essence of your life in words, you’d stay focused, stick with it and follow through.

If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place.

The Power and Purpose of Writing Your Unique Life Story

What is life story writing? Let’s start with what it isn’t.

Life story isn’t autobiographical. Autobiography is a factual account of a person’s life from birth to present written by that person. Details and accuracy are essential.

Life story writing isn’t memoir. Memoir is a narrative told from the writer’s point of view about a certain period of time or a meaningful theme in a person’s life. Memoirs are typically written with the goal of publication, so elements of good writing, such as character development, story arc, dialogue and voice are very important.

Life story writing is for the rest of us. What makes life story writing different from other types of writing is it’s more intuitive. We throw out the “rules’ ‘ of writing and instead write a collection of stories in no particular order or theme. It’s a way of connecting the dots of your experiences and how people and events impacted you from your unique perspective. Using this collection of self-selected stories captures the essence of your life in words, and helps you more readily see the lessons and the blessings.

But how do you know which life experiences to write about? Where do you find inspiration to write in a way that is honest, meaningful and self-compassionate? How do you write about the more painful experiences in your life without getting stuck in the emotions? How do you write about other people and situations that still feel unsettling?

You’re not alone.

These concerns often keep us from writing about our lives. We worry we aren’t good enough writers or that no one will be interested in reading our stories or we won’t remember details accurately or that we’ll never find the time to write in between all of our other obligations.

And if you try to do this on your own, you’ll most likely get stuck and struggle to stay focused and committed. The good news is there’s a better and much easier way to get what’s in your heart onto the page.

Imagine what it would feel like if …

  • You didn’t have to go this life story writing journey on your own
  • You had a framework that made it easier to write about your life experiences
  • You had guidance on how to overcome writing obstacles
  • You had a structure that allowed you to reflect and write at your own pace
  • You were given tools and exercises to help you remember the moments and memories that shaped who you are today
  • You found inspiration using introspective prompts that led you deeper so you discover the gifts and lessons of pivotal experiences
  • You were part of a private online community that encouraged you to keep writing

    When you have the structure and support you need, writing about your life can be a fun, exciting and rewarding experience.

    Life story writing is profoundly healing and helps you find clarity in who you are today, who you’re becoming and the contributions you wish to make moving forward. There are many unexpected benefits that come from writing about your life including:

    • Feeling inner peace and a newfound excitement for the years ahead
    • Discovering the lessons in your life experiences
    • Recalling those pivotal moments where you showed courage, resilience and strength
    • Feeling more connected and cared for by the people who supported and empowered you along the way
    • Shifted grief, shame and regret to self-acceptance, self-love and a greater appreciation for everything you’ve lived through
    • Finding your voice, your wisdom and the impact you’ve made
    • Sharing your story provided hope and inspiration for others
    • Leaving behind a treasured family heirloom for future generations

    This is the power and purpose of writing your unique Life Story.

    If you’re ready to write your unique life story at your own pace, you’ll find everything you need to stay inspired and committed right here!

    Upon registering, you’ll receive access to our self-guided course videos and our intuitive writing software. We also take you on a virtual tour through the software platform where you’ll write, edit, organize and design your Legacy Journal with ease.


    In this session, we’ll explore the common fears and doubts that many life story writers struggle with – uncertainty, lack of confidence, fear of judgment, etc. You’ll begin to learn effective ways to overcome these obstacles so you write about your experiences without interference!

    I’ll guide you through a fun exercise to help rein in any negative mindsets so you jumpstart the creative process. We’ll give you a tour of our easy-to-use writing software program where you’ll find inspiration for our stories and capture your creativity!

    We’ll show you how to organize and save all of your stories in one place so you can create custom Legacy Journals with the memories and moments that make your life story unique.


    In this session, you’ll learn what life story writing is and why life story writing is simple in comparison to other types of autobiographical writing. Each video lesson in this module takes you on a personal journey that ignites your courage, clarity and confidence in writing about your life.

    You’ll be guided through an enlightening visualization exercise that helps you set a powerful intention to strengthen your commitment to writing so you stay on track. Finally, you’ll learn the 10 essential elements to get into the ideal mindset for life story writing that sets you up for success.


    (Introduction to the Hero’s Journey Framework, Family, Routine, and Life-Changing Incidents)

    In this session, you’ll learn how to set the stage for your stories and why this is important. You’ll be introduced to the six stages of the hero’s journey – an empowering and relatable storytelling framework adapted from Joseph Campell. You’ll experience a guided time-travel visualization exercise to help you recall important life events to create your Life Outline.

    You’ll revisit memories of childhood, people who influenced your life and the times you felt a call for something new in your life, either by choice or by chance. We’ll provide a unique discovery tool for tapping into the emotive power of your experiences so you write about both your joyful and sorrowful stories in a balanced way.


    (The Friends and Foes on Your Life Journey)

    In this session, I’ll teach you how to handle the challenges that get in the way of feeling safe to share your writing – stories about other people, sharing your truth, standards and expectations you set for yourself and your writing. I’ll also share how to stay in alignment with your values and in integrity with what you put on the page.

    You’ll be invited to examine the obstacles, challenges, tests and “helpers” in your life. You’ll take a deeper look at these experiences and how they influenced you. Using the transformative practice of reframing, you’ll expand your perspective and find deeper meaning in the more difficult times as well as appreciate those who stood by your side. As a result, you’ll write about yourself and others honestly and with compassion that produces truthful and affirming stories rich in meaning, insight and appreciation.


    In this session you’ll be inspired to celebrate the courage, strength and resilience you showed during the toughest times in life.

    You’ll explore those defining moments in your life where you came face to face with your greatest fears, self-doubts or limitations. Whether you took the risk or withdrew, these are the times when your inner strength, courage and resilience shined through and you discovered capabilities you didn’t even know you had.

    You’ll explore both the dark and the light of these times – from the inner critic, inherited family trauma, the drama triangle, and victim to empowered mindset – to identify your special gifts, your superpowers and the victories you’ve attained from facing your “dragon.” Seeing these events and situations from a fresh perspective, you’ll release feelings like regret, shame or guilt and honor and appreciate just how powerful you are!


    In this session, you’ll explore your journey of personal growth and transformation as a result of the challenges you have faced in life. You’ll begin to see that there is a gift in even the biggest ordeals in your life – even when things didn’t turn out as you hoped.

    Life doesn’t always go the way you planned, but sometimes the door closing on you opens a new door of opportunity. After these turning points, you were different, perceived something differently or shifted in some way. With a deeper understanding of what it means to live for yourself rather than others, you’ll feel empowered and see that life is happening for you instead of to you. As you progress through the videos in this module, you’ll discover strengths and qualities you didn’t know you had!

    You’ll also become aware of the abilities that lay dormant, were underutilized or shined the light on aspects of yourself that remained hidden in the shadows. With an open heart and mind, you’ll step into a new space where wisdom can be appreciated as part of your own unique journeys.


    In this session, you’ll tap into the wise elder within and find what truly satiates your heart. You’ll explore the “never satisfied” state and the people pleasing habits that drain and deplete you. You’ll experience inner shifts and an empowering appreciation and sense of awe for what you’ve lived through and achieved.

    With this deeper gratitude for the lessons and the blessings in your life, you’ll find the courage to own who you are, be seen and share your wisdom and experience with others. You’ll know you have something to say.

    Through embodying all aspects of yourself, you become a role model of self-acceptance that shines a light of hope for others. Sharing your life story creates a strong sense of connection that makes others feel a part of something bigger.


    In this session, you’ll embrace your whole story in a way that empowers you to be seen, be heard and take charge of how you’ll be remembered. Looking through a raw and tranquil lens of honesty, self-compassion and self-acceptance, you’ve reflected upon your experiences, behaviors, choices, and motivations that informed your choices and who you have become today.

    Now you are invited to imagine what lies ahead. With a blank canvas upon which only YOU can paint – who do YOU want to become? What contribution do you wish to make? Engaging with yourself at this deeper level, you’ll consider how different parts of your identity are vying for expression so you can shape your future and feel excited about the years ahead. You’ll partake in an insightful experiment by communing with your future self. Take solace in knowing that whatever dreamy vision you hold within will manifest!


    In this session, you’ll be guided step-by-step through turning your life stories into a Legacy Journal you and others will treasure and share. I’ll share tips to make editing your Legacy Journal a breeze. I’ll walk you through how to organize your stories and how to create multiple Legacy Journals with selected stories you wish to share.

    You’ll learn how to find images that enhance your unique life story plus how to upload, format and add images to your Legacy Journal with ease. I’ll also show you how to select the perfect cover that captures the essence of your unique life story. You’ll leave with a one-of-a-kind Legacy Journal you’ll treasure and feel proud to share!

    No. Thought and memory provoking, the prompts we provide are meant to take you deeper into your memories and experiences where breakthroughs and healing take place.

    What if I’m not sure anyone will read my life story?
    This is a common worry for many life story writers. The truth is, you’ll never know unless you write your story and you may not live to see the impact your stories will have on those who follow. However, using a unique method to recall those key moments in your life that shaped who you’ve become often results in surprising revelations and wisdom that impacts your future and the lives of others when shared.
    What if I’m worried others will judge me once they read what I’ve been through?
    In our self-guided online course, we share many tools and exercises to help you find ways to share truthfully (so that loved ones can really know you), while remaining in complete control of what you share and with whom.
    What if my past is too painful?
    As a counselor and intuitive coach, I know how difficult it is to experience and recall painful memories. In the self-guided course, you’ll be gently guided to explore the difficult experiences that influenced who you are today. However, you do not have to go beyond what is comfortable or feels right for you. There are many exercises that help you make peace with some of the most challenging moments of your past and celebrate your strength and ability to rise above. You’ll also have a safe and compassionate community of other life story writers to lean on throughout your journey.
    What should I consider when choosing between the different programs?
    Being honest about what you need to be successful is critical. If you are self-motivated and have a strong desire to explore your past without an intuitive guide, the Self-Guided Course is right for you. If you have trouble following through or want the many benefits of being a part of an intimate community of fellow life story writers including the opportunity to share stories and give and receive loving feedback, Journey to Legacy 12- month coaching program is the best option for you.

    What if I’m not ready but want to learn more about how this process works?

    We recommend starting with our free downloadable guide so you get a feel of what’s involved and the process of life story writing. You can also schedule a call to ask any questions you have.
