Finding Your Story
Sundays mornings at 11:30 am via Zoom
March 7, 21 & 28
Led by Trina Hayes
Lent is a season of reflection. We’ll use our wilderness time to find our memories and reflect on our own stories. Using handouts available below, we’ll learn mapping exercises, use checklists, and engage in techniques to make our memories into memoirs. We’ll learn how to access memories of our lives and of people, places, and events we don’t think we can remember.
All materials are posted below. You may also use these techniques and handouts to interview relatives and friends to assist them in preserving memories for future generations.
If you want to learn more, Writing Life Stories: How to Make Memories Into Memoirs, Ideas Into Essays, and Life Into Literature by Bill Roorbach is an excellent guide.
