My Story: Capturing Meaningful Life Memories
in Community with Others

IMG_8730.jpeg

Your story is one of the most precious gifts you could ever give to your family. Don’t let it go unopened! Many of us intend to find the time to record our stories, but the busyness of life gets in the way and we never get around to it. My Story provides a unique opportunity to achieve this important goal within the context of a trusted community setting. We write in between meetings and then return to share our stories with one another. Participants come not only to read, but to listen to others and provide helpful feedback and encouragement. See our gallery for photos of My Story gatherings, participants' family photos and projects.  

My Story was piloted in Atlanta, GA in 2019. Since then, three unique community groups have gone through the program. When COVID hit midway through our second season in March of 2020, we shifted from in-person to online gatherings. It was clear that the need for community was greater than ever and we extended well beyond our original 10-week season. While our third season was conducted online only, we encourage groups moving forward to decide what works best for them. We also encourage groups to celebrate when participants' projects are ready to share! We have hosted celebration events both in person and online.

 

What's on the horizon for Season Four? The Christian Grandparent Network is opening the door for us to expand our reach to cities across the country! If you would like to lead a My Story group through your church or ministry, you can register for our free 1-hour introductory session to learn more about the trainings we will offer for community group leaders this fall.
