About … Patricia Benesh

Patricia Benesh

7memories.com and this blog are born of my urgent wish to encourage you to tell and write personal stories–your own–and those of your relatives. Our method gets you started with a manageable slice of life–just 7 memories. Please capture these rich memories before it’s too late.

In my case, I waited too long. When the first grandchild was born into our family, I felt compelled to regale her with stories about her great grandparents–my parents. Both were immigrants whose journey took them from oppression and poverty to freedom and prosperity; from riding in a horse and buggy to watching a man walk on the moon. Alas, they were no longer here to tell their stories. Instead, I patched together a photo memoir and wrote a child’s version of their life together. My brother’s grandchild delights in it. You can see an excerpt on the top banner of this web site.

I want to urge each of you to write your life story. Even if you:

  • don’t like to write
  • haven’t a clue how to begin a life story or memoir
  • don’t know how to retrieve information from the past
  • feel guilty about not writing your life story

Everyone has a story worth remembering. Create a legacy that will live forever … by yourself or with a loved one.
