AN ENCOURAGING VIRTUAL COMMUNITY

You'll become part of an encouraging, grateful, faithful community that meets and interacts online within the Life Story School.
We honor God and Biblical principles in our lives as well as our stories. Whether you believe in God or not, you are welcome to join, and I hope you will!

PROFESSIONAL LIFE STORY COACHING

During live online sessions led by a professional life story coach, you'll participate in group coaching. You'll learn from answers to other Storytellers' questions as well as from answers to your own. 

RESOURCE LIBRARY & TOOLKIT

You'll learn new processes, skills, and techniques including but not limited to: storytelling, interviewing, writing, editing, scanning, book design, printing/publishing, and best practices. This is a work in progress. Faithful founders will help shape the contents of the Club. 

SHARE THE GIFT OF

During the live online sessions, you'll have the opportunity to share a short (3 minute) portion of your story with the community. You'll receive positive feedback to help you enhance the way you told and wrote the story.

DO YOU WANT  TO . . . 

  • Pass your wisdom down to your children, grandchildren, and future great-grandchildren . . .

  • Become closer to your loved ones . . .

  • Say things that need to be said before it's too late . . .

  • Fill an emotional void for family members who will never get to meet you . . .

  • Start capturing your stories that can be incorporated into a longer book later . . .

  • Connect generations that have passed with future generations so you and your loved ones are not forgotten . . .

  • Create an irreplaceable gift that will bless generations of your family forever . . .

BUT YOU'RE THINKING  . . . 

  • I only want to share my story (my blessings) with my family, friends, and selected loved ones. I don't want the world to read it on Amazon.

  • I want this to be a lot of fun, not a lot of pressure.

  • I'm not really a writer. I have things to say, but I'm not confident that I'll write them well.

  • I wouldn't have the first clue about how to write a chapter. I don't even know which topics to write about.

  • I'm afraid if I start by myself, I won't finish. I wish I had someone to guide me through the process.

  • Even if no one else wants to read what I write, I still want to put my life on paper. I know my experiences will help someone in my family someday.

DETAILS . . . DETAILS . . . WHAT'S INCLUDED?

A PRIVATE, ONLINE CONNECTION GROUP

Sometimes, you just need a place to ask for help to get past a roadblock, or you really want to celebrate your success with someone who will understand.

We'll have a private Life Story School group in which you can ask questions and collaborate with other students.

I'll be available within the connection group to answer questions and provide support as well!

2 LIVE, ONLINE MEETINGS PER MONTH

Some people need the routine of a meeting as accountability to keep making progress. We'll meet twice per month (currently the first and third Mondays from 6:30 - 7:30 PM ET) online within the Life Story School via Zoom. Meetings will include but will not be limited to: short classes, question and answer sessions, group coaching, and story-sharing.

EXPERT GUIDANCE

You'll get expert guidance from me—Michelle Beckman. I'm the CEO of Sunday Dinner Stories, the owner of the Life Story School, and a life story writing professional. I've helped grateful, faithful parents and grandparents save their stories for their families for the past 8 years.

Your questions will be answered in a timely manner, so you can keep moving toward your goal.

PROCESS, BEST PRACTICES, AND MINDSET

You'll learn the processes and best practices to follow as you write and record your stories for your family members. You'll also lean how to keep your mindset positive and fresh, so you'll keep writing. (The Enemy wants you to stop writing. You need tools to keep going even when you might get discouraged.)

STORYTELLING AND WRITING TIPS

You'll receive basic storytelling and writing tips, so your readers will understand your intent.

I can't guarantee you'll become a New York Times Bestselling author, but you will have the tools to write paragraphs and pages about your life. My goal is to help you become one of your family's Most Read authors.

STORY-SHARING TIME

We all want to be heard and to feel like our story is worthwhile. We'll dedicate a portion of each live online session for students who want to share a short story (2-3 minutes) from their writing. (Please be sure to write your story ahead of time.)

During this time, you can acknowledge your success and receive/give positive feedback from/to the group. If the cohort of participants is large, then we'll divide into smaller groups so everyone gets a turn to share.

CO-WRITING SESSIONS

Join us for at least one 60-minute online co-writing session (via Zoom) during the month. (Time(s) are to be determined.) We'll check in with each other, and then you'll get down to writing and/or editing your responses.

You'll state your goal at the beginning of the session, work privately on your writing, and report on your progress at the end of the session.

Co-writing sessions are wonderful motivators for people who need the support of other students to focus on their writing goals.

DIVING BOARDS: TOPICS TO WRITE ABOUT

I like to call the topics Diving Boards because I want you to start with the idea and dive right into the topic. Let your memory take you wherever it wants to go.

If you're not sure what to write about, you'll have the opportunity to review and write about a monthly set of Diving Boards. Your responses are your legacy. They're how you want to be remembered.

NOTE: Predefined templates of Diving Boards designed as a book are available for a separate fee and/or are offered within Legacy of Love Heirloom Workshops that are also available for a separate fee.

BE A FAITHFUL FOUNDER 

I call this a Storytelling Club, but we're really a family. If you don't attend a meeting or two, someone will probably reach out to you and verify that you're okay. If you're struggling with your writing or a memory, don't be surprised if someone offers to pray for you. (Club members have even been known to ask for prayer!)

We are a faithful group that honors God and Biblical principles in our lives as well as our stories. Whether you believe in God or not, you are welcome to join, and I hope you will!

As a founder of the Club, you are in a unique position to influence the materials that I teach and add to the resource library. Please be patient and offer grace . . . the persistent resource library will grow as the community grows.

"Saving my story is something I always wanted to do and expected to do someday,

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Although we'd love to see and support you, you can watch the replay video of the session. I usually post it as a lesson within the week. Please note that for privacy reasons, the Story-sharing portion of the meetings will not be recorded. And . . . If I don't hear from you, don't be surprised if I track you down! I consider my students part of my family, and I'll want to be sure you are okay. 

You do not need to share stories with the group. You can keep your story as private or as public as you choose. If you want to share a snippet, you can during the Story-sharing time. My workshop participants love the storytelling portion of my sessions!

During the live group sessions, I'll talk about the processes you can follow, if you choose. I'll also talk about the best practices I've used with my own Storytellers as we've developed and printed or published their books. As the resource library expands, you'll also have access to lessons (printed and/or video) that you can review independently. Ultimately, you'll decide how closely you want to follow the methodology or processes that I present to you.

If you'd like to discuss an individualized coaching agreement, please reach out. We'll discuss our availability, your requirements/goals, and your budget.

CEO OF SUNDAY DINNER STORIES | OWNER OF THE LIFE STORY SCHOOL

Hey there!

I'm Michelle Beckman, the CEO of Sunday Dinner Stories and the owner of the Life Story School.

I help grateful, faithful parents and grandparents who want to know their loved ones on a deeper level. Together, we save their Legacies of Love—their beliefs, values, life lessons, and stories—as books and audio playlists.

I believe that everyone should know he/she belongs, has been heard, and will be remembered in the way they want to be remembered. I'm excited to help you empower all generations of your family and your community, one story at a time.

You can find me with my family and friends in church pews, hanging out by the swim team pool, scanning photographs, researching my family tree, and talking about all things legacy, life story, and memoir throughout New England and online.

Join me for a workshop and let's connect all generations of your family forever!
