This article is about how to tell stories and share a moment of truth using the Legacy Storytelling method. Whether you’re looking for help with how to write your family history, or how to take your family’s legacy memories and build a story that will carry them through the generations, this article has some great prompts and ideas.

How to Start Telling A Moment of Truth

Legacy storytelling is a way to share your story and the stories of those who made it possible for you to be here. It's about capturing what’s worth remembering and preserving it in a meaningful way. As we navigate life, there are moments that stand out as significant turning points in our journey- these are often difficult times but can also be some of the most rewarding experiences. 

We all have a unique perspective on the events that shape us, and legacy storytelling is an opportunity to reflect on these memories with family members or friends while they're still around to hear them. 

Every moment of our lives is a shared one. Every stage, every milestone, and every struggle that we go through shapes who we are as individuals and in turn how others see us. 

Writing Prompts

In this blog post, you will find some prompts to share your own story about a time when you had an “aha” or ” a moment of truth.” 

You can use these prompts to write about the time you realized that it was okay for yourself to be unique, when someone said something so hurtful that you felt like they were speaking directly into your soul, or any other moment where life has changed because of what happened. 

You might not think now is the right time to reflect on this experience, but I promise it will help with healing and understanding just how far you’ve come. You'll be surprised how much more vivid memories become when you're writing them down on paper, especially if they include some of these details: 

  • What happened? 
  • How did it make you feel?

These simple questions will help bring a moment of truth to your life. If you have the printed pages or printed journals, feel free to write whatever you'd like in them and cross things out.
