Press Release for Sedona Red Rock News by Rachel Polen
A Sedona video biography company, Our Family Legacy Video, believes it has a way for you to “outlive your life.” How? By creating an enduring video recording of what you want to share most for those you leave behind. It enables you to tell your story, as only you can, in your own special way.
We all have a story to tell, the unique story of our life and family. Most people stories fade into selective memories and dim recollections. Memories pale like old snapshots, and so much gets lost in translation over time. The accurate story or record can be obscured or largely forgotten.
We all want to belong and have meaning, purpose, or make a difference in life. As we grow older, we usually examine our lives and wonder if we have made a real or lasting difference, and if our descendants will know who we are.
Our Family Legacy Video biographers want people to think about, "What do you really want your loved ones to know and remember? How many lives and hearts will you really touch in your lifetime?"
Patricia Schnebly (granddaughter of Sedona Schnebly of the founding family of Sedona) asked these questions. She found new answers when she met a professional video biographer (ourfamilylegacyvideo.com) to accurately record her family’s stories. “I’m so glad I did it! It's the perfect gift for all my future generations - an extraordinary and valuable legacy keepsake.”
You do not have to be a historical figure or famous to be filmed, or written about, to give insight into who you are, and would like to be. Everyday people do this too.
Reflecting on your life and recording your thoughts and feelings can be transformative and redemptive. If every person left a legacy recorded for all time, it could create a new culture of giving, and an understanding of the value of every life.
Some other benefits Our Family Legacy Video clients report are: a greater sense of meaning and purpose to their life; being truly seen and heard; and a peace from the past, and more presence in the moment.
Sometimes Our Family Legacy Video gets asked, "What if you don't have any descendants?" Their answer is, "Legacy can be a larger idea than just something for your family. You still have a legacy to leave for your loved ones; and for all the family of humanity. You can make a quality video and post it online to YouTube, or any of a number of other sites, or file it with your local library, genealogy society, church, or the Library of Congress."
They add, "Imagine your life and story taking on a new meaning, extending your life's purpose to educate, uplift, and inspire the hearts and minds of others - ultimately making this world a little better place." For more information, see www.ourfamilylegacyvideo.com
