Mother's Day is a special occasion to honor the woman who gave us life and love. One meaningful way to celebrate this day is to create a Mother's Day Life Stories Book filled with your mom's stories and memories.
Imagine sitting with your mom, drinking tea, and reminiscing about her life. You'll not only learn more about your mom, but you'll also have a chance to relive some of your favorite memories! It's also an opportunity to spend quality time together.
Reading these stories in a Life Stories Book has so many scientific benefits! For example, reading can remind people of activities or occupations they once enjoyed or knowledge and skills they possess, helping to restore their sense of purpose and connection to the world.
So, why not give the gift of memories this Mother's Day? Creating a Life Stories Book is easy and fun on My Stories Matter!
How Does it Work?
The process is simple: all you need to do is set up a free account on My Stories Matter and invite your mom to join. We have hundreds of prompts to help her write her life stories, such as “Describe your parents? “What activities did you enjoy as a child?” and “What were you like as a teenager?”
Or, she can use our “Writing Helper” to turn her ideas and words into beautifully crafted stories delivered straight into her email inbox. We’ll email her some topics, or she can choose her own. Then, just like a conversation, we will email her some questions. She only needs to spend a few minutes on her responses, and we will turn them into professionally-written stories of her life. We’ll also save them on My Stories Matter so she can add photos!
According to a survey of Americans' keeping habits, photos are the most sentimental object we save! Utilize our powerful photo enhancement service to breathe life into her old, faded photos.
Once your mother has recorded the stories behind the photos, you can organize them into a Mother's Day Book. Or, our designer can take it to the next level and create a personalized-looking gift.
Books are timeless. Printing your Mother's Day Book will be a tangible gift that she and others will value for years.
But the fun doesn’t stop there; once the Mother's Day Book is created, you can share it with family and friends!
Play a “Guess Who” Game
One fun way to use My Stories Matter is to create a "guess who" game with your mom's stories. You can record your mom sharing stories about different people, such as her childhood friends, old co-workers, or even celebrities she's met. Once you record the stories, you can organize them into the Mother's Day Book and invite your family and friends to guess who the stories are about.
You can access My Stories Matter anywhere! This means that even if you can't be with your mother in person on Mother's Day, you can still create a unique book for her.
Another way to make the process more fun is to record your mother's stories in different places or settings. You can take My Stories Matter with you on a trip or to other sites with special meaning, such as the house she grew up in or a family vacation place. This will add an extra layer of significance to the stories in the book.
