More than ever the women in our lives our feeling isolated and alone.
You may think she knows how much you care, but she probably doesn't hear it enough. Asking her about her stories and memories, shows her you care, love and respect her.
Don't wait for regret to set in. Challenge yourself to start the conversation today and let her know you want to hear her story.
I agree that it's the thought that counts, but wouldn't it be amazing to give the gift of your time, love, energy, and create something beautiful in the process?
You never know what stories you will uncover. That twinkle in her eye could mean a lot of things. Are you ready to uncover the woman she was before you were a twinkle in anyone's eyes?I'm ready to ask about her twinkle!
A unique way to create a lasting gift while creating priceless memories in the process. The Get Her Story Challenge is the missing piece to help you work with a woman you love to hear her story and create a keepsake worth saving and sharing.
The women in our lives are often unheard and silent, in life and in death. I don't want to be hearing the same story from you in a few years. It's up to you to start the conversation with the people you love around the dinner table, over coffee, and in all the moments in between.
🥰 You know her story matters. You also probably know it isn’t always easy to get her talking let alone finding the time to work with her. Maybe you have tried before with things like StoryWorth, scrapbooks, and other tools that encourage your loved ones to share their story with you.
😞 But my guess is that it didn’t quite work out the way you wanted it to. Consistency is hard with this type of project. It gets harder when your storyteller is having to go it alone.
It's up to you to start the conversation with a woman in your life about her story, around the dinner table, over coffee, on the phone (or portal), and in all the moments in between.
Getting someone to open up about themselves can’t be treated as a passive activity. It isn’t enough to have an automated email with an amazing prompt.
There will be templates and worksheets, interactive games, and real life me working with you to complete this gift.
This is a choose your own adventure challenge you can complete at any time during the year. 😊 The Get Her Story Challenge is the missing piece to help you work with a woman you love to hear her story and create a keepsake worth saving and sharing.
You will work with a special woman in your life (mom, grandma, aunt, sister, spouse) or her family to help her tell her story. By the time you are finished working through the modules and worksheets, you will have a beautiful gift to give her.
You will have access to all of the story materials up front in case you want to crash course through the storytelling process. If you like the week by week timing, you can decide to go that route.
The Get Her Story Challenge is a step by step walkthrough of
✔️ what questions to ask
✔️ how to go deeper
✔️ how to encourage your loved one open up more
✔️ how to capture her memories and tell her story using readily available tools
✔️ what to do with the memories after she has shared them with you
There is no time limit and you will have access to everything you need to get started (and actually finish) your story gift. Keeping in mind that everyone learns differently, you will find a choose your own adventure experience that best suits your needs.
This will be foundational work on storytelling and picking out the pieces you will need to create your story gift. You'll also see the templates and a few finished gifts to help you get inspired.
This part will be all about what and how to ask the questions that will shape the story gift and fill in the blanks.
By the time you head to your next family dinner/event you will be ready to have the conversations you need to have to create the draft of your story gift.
In Part 3, you will compile everything we've been working on into a draft or reviewing what you want to include in the final gift.
This final part will find you putting together the final version of your gift. Using the resources and templates from Part 3 you'll polish your gift and have it ready to give away.
