I recently had a special experience with my father that I'd like to share for you to consider as something to do with loved ones over the holidays. I used a card deck I purchased online to interview him and record his life stories. It was a simple and enjoyable process, spanning a few hours over a few sittings. We covered nearly 150 questions, creating a lasting treasure of memories. (And yes, I'll be sharing some of the interviews with you in an upcoming podcast!)

Using this card deck allowed us to connect on a deeper level and learn new stories. It's a wonderful way to preserve the life tales of your loved ones, especially older family members. The deck I used is available on, with other options I recently saw on Amazon.

Consider capturing the life story of someone you love, especially over this holiday season. You can use a card deck's questions as a framework for meaningful conversations. Whether you choose to record audio or video, enjoy the moment — it's a way to build a stronger bond and create lasting memories.

If you decide to record the story of someone in your life, I'd love to hear about your experience. Please reach out to me through my website here or on social media (all my links are below).

Make the most of this season by cherishing your loved ones and capturing their stories. Let a deck be your guide as you enjoy precious moments together. Don't wait until it's too late—seize the opportunity to create a lasting legacy of memories.

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” 

– Dr. Seuss
