How to Use Your

My Life’s Garden© Book Consider the unique impact each of us has upon the lives of those around us. Conversely, as in nature, our own personal growth is dependent upon the love, nurture and encouragement we receive from family and friends. The My Life’s Garden© Book offers family and friends the opportunity to share unique occasions and memories about a special person they care about. The My Life’s Garden© Book is designed into two sections: Biographical Section

Information on an individual’s life can be entered in a broad, chronological order to create a truly personal outline. This section offers a fun way to discover fine points about an individual’s life that their loved ones may have never known, such as least-favorite foods, first car, first pet, personal likes, dislikes and so on.

Shared Memories Section Allows anyone a chance to offer his/her own personal Shared Memory about your loved one that will act as a special keepsake for years to come. Additionally, extra pages of the Shared Memories section are available separately. These extra pages can be mailed to those family and friends around the country who are unable to make a personal visit. The My Life’s Garden© Book has a simple 6-ring metal binder that allows you to add or subtract pages whenever needed.


My Life’s Garden© Our life parallels the path of nature - as a seed germinates in the garden, so too is a single, tiny baby destined to sprout, develop and bloom in this world. Throughout the early stages of development, effects from our surroundings and the people around us enhance and accentuate our singular beauty, until one day we become but a complete collection of our experiences and take our rightful place in life’s beautiful garden.
