Memories are meant to be shared with our loved ones.

Let's preserve them in a beautiful book.


Storytelling has been a part of our genetic history as human beings for tens of thousands of years. Cave paintings and campfire stories have been passed down over time.

Lost opportunities

In our chaotic modern lives, a lot of these important stories and memories get forgotten. As a result, we forget who we are and where we came from.

Our Goal

Our goal is to ensure that these stories and memories are captured and preserved. Together let's turn them into beautiful books. What a gift to hand down to future generations!

The program consists of 6 modules over 40 weeks

  • Each week the writer receives an email with a topic and a number of questions that gets them thinking and writing about the topic. 
  • The topics and weekly writing prompts are specially curated to elicit interesting and intimate stories and memories from the person undertaking the program.
  • After drafting the response to the weekly prompts, the recipient can also add photographs with captions to go with that week’s story.
  • The process is easy to follow and the recipient does not need to have a degree in computing, or anything else, just the ability to type and respond to an email.
  • At the end of the 40 weeks, responses to the 40 weekly topics and photographs are compiled into a digital proof which is read and approved by you and the recipient of the program.
  • Upon your approval, we will print your story in a beautiful hardcover book and provide an e-book digital copy to share with all your loved ones.
  • Additional copies of the hardcover book can also be purchased as part of the program.

About us

Who built the program?

Hi, I'm Eda the Founder and Client Relationship Manager at “My Memoir Maker”. For the past decade, I have been passionate about writing my own family's and other's personal stories. In 2017 I spent 6 months writing my mother's memoirs. I also spent 12 months working as a volunteer in hospitals capturing the life stories of a large number of people in palliative care so that their stories would live on for their families. In 2022, I was also lucky enough to publish a book about members in my community who had started their own businesses for the purpose of balancing their family life with their business.

Why did I create this program?

While I thoroughly enjoyed working with individuals in the community and those in palliative care, I quickly recognized I could reach more people and help them tell their story by using technology. As an online offering the "My Memoir Maker” program can reach individuals and families across the world and help them connect through shared personal stories while creating a lasting family legacy. Our intention is to make family time fun and engaging and help our children understand about their families' past.
