    Susanne M.

  • “I ordered for my father, and he enjoys answering the questions and building a book to leave us kids. It’s one of the best presents I’ve ever given him. I highly recommend this to all those adult children looking for a special gift for their older family members.”

Our Passion?
Strengthening Family Bonds
With the Power of Story

Our story starts in a way you’re probably familiar with. When our founder realized that – despite seeing his mother every weekend – he’d never talked to her in-depth about her life story, he knew he needed a way to capture her history for generations to come. 

Afraid of losing details of her stories, he started sending her questions to answer each week in writing. When he ended up with a precious archive of all her best stories, he decided the best way to properly honor them was in a beautifully printed book that he could pass on throughout his family. 

Years later, we’re helping families worldwide capture their stories in a way that truly lasts.

Collapsible content


Where do you ship to? How much does it cost?

We offer worldwide shipping. A large portion of our clientele is based in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. For these countries, the shipping cost is already included in the product price. Customers from other countries will incur a shipping fee of $15 per package.

How do I order for different people?

When purchasing books for two (or more) people, you'll need to complete each purchase individually. After finishing the first order, you can then proceed to start a second one for the other person.

Is there any way to get more than one question a week?

The pace is completely customizable! You or your relative could access all the questions at once, or receive one question a week, two per week, or even one per month. Whatever works well for you.

Can you provide some examples of question prompts that you are sending?

Yes, here are five examples of question prompts that can be used:

  • What are your earliest memories?
  • Have you traveled anywhere interesting?
  • Who are the most important people in your life, and why?
  • What are your hobbies and interests?
  • What are your proudest achievements?

These question prompts are just suggestions, and you can customize them to include any questions you would like!

Can answers be edited before the book is printed?

Yes! If you remember something new, or simply want to add or change a previous answer, all answers can be edited by the respondent by logging into their account any time before the book is finalized for printing.

Can I choose what questions will be asked?

Yes, you can decide if you’d like to send our pre-selected list of questions, or you can edit individual questions and create your own.

Can my loved one add photos with their answers?

Yes, every time they’re asked a question, they’ll have the option to add one photo.

Where can I find help if I have other questions?

We’d be happy to help! Feel free to give use the chat widget found on our website in the bottom right corner, or visit our Contact Us page to submit your request from our contact form.

If I purchase a subscription as a gift, can I have it delivered on a certain date?

Yes! When you subscribe, we’ll ask you when you’d like your recipient to receive their first email, and you’ll be able to add your own gift message.

If I’m sending stories by email, how do I know they’ll be kept private?

Our top priority is to keep your personal information safe and secure as you embark on your storytelling journey. As both parents and children ourselves, we recognize how critical it is to ensure our family stories are shared only with those we choose to share them with.

That’s why we use SSL encryption, and we do not give any of our employees access to our customer's personal information or stories. When a customer finishes writing, we generate a PDF of their book and share it with our printer, along with a non-disclosure agreement to ensure confidentiality. We take every measure to ensure the protection of our customers' data.
