Your Life Journals are what you wish them to be. They can be private for family, restricted for friends, public and even anonymous & all with live video and pictures.
It’s a place you can create for the future so your loved ones or those you invite can log in and get some special time with you when they need you.
Tell the story of your life; leave your daily “I love you’s”, your favourite jokes, bedtime stories for the young ones, share life stories, recall and share old memories, recipes etc.
You can do this with family and make it as much fun as you like. It is only limited only by you.
Congratulations, you have taken the first step in creating your life legacy
The year 2017 was a strange year. A project at work failed but we got a new important client, our son entering college, family members passed away, and my diagnosis. It felt like for every joy or beautiful thing we received this year, a sad news would follow after. My wife said that we could also look at it the...

I want to remember these past two weeks as I've felt well enough to savor a new experience, come to grips with the reality of my disease, and enjoy my friends.
I talked Mike into joining me for a pottery throwing intensive. Yes, that is a thing. My pot came out all crooked, but Mike mastered that wheel. Even...

I was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease in July this year. We had to go through so many new and confusing details to deal with the diagnosis. We were frustrated that time didn't wait for us. We were frustrated because we had to change.
For the first Christmas with this diagnosis, though, we didn't want to do anything different. My wife...

I have been nervous to write on here even though I've wanted too. My spelling and grammar isn't good and only getting worse these days. Our schools were terrible around here when I was growing up because we were a mill town and my parents never really took much stalk in education. So here I am. But reading all the...

I'm missing my friend terribly so. Walking down memory lane has me thinking about how Amelia and I became serious Rook partners a few years ago. About four months after Annie passed away, I was still moping at home when Amelia decided to creatively intervene.
"I signed us up for Rook tomorrow night at 7 pm"
"Amelia, I've already told you that...

They say that you can choose your friends, but not your family. This is a good saying, in my opinion, because it subtly implies a fact of life most of us cannot face properly. That being, sometimes your family members are the type of people you wouldn't have as friends.
So how does one handle things when a family member like that is...

I found your site on LinkedIn and I have to say that this site is wonderful. It lets people write their knowledge that they want to impart to family members so that it is there forever. This site does important work and utilizes technology to help sick people leave their thoughts. It does a huge service to people in hospice...

This is the most incredible website I have ever found. I am a young, single Southern female just starting down my career path here in Atlanta, Georgia, and I found out about HeartPrints & American Pride on Twitter. I have kept a diary since I was just a little girl and the idea of being able to save all of my past...

Keep your oils, juices, and "opportunities" at home. My Oncologist and
hospice nurses are taking care of me, thanks!
**This isn't my finest entry since erorrs abound. Had offers to help
from husband, but no, this is what brain cancer looks like for me right
I've been aggravated and a little hurt these past couple days. I'm

As I reflect on what I am most proud of, I would say that I have tried
my best to make someone's day, or be a small source of happiness to
someone. I cannot say that I have solved all the world's problems or
have solved global warming, but I hope that I have made a positive
impact on someone's...

I was never so happy that I purchased life insurance than when I found out that I was dying of cancer. My main concern is that my family will flounder without me. I run the show, so to speak, and thinking that my wife and kids will have to go on without me is really bothering me.

I'm losing myself in this ocean called death. Getting the real idea that everything is going to end is overwhelming. No one can help you, really. Family can hold your hand but nothing more. The only thing that is keeping me from falling into the abyss is my religion.
Many are coming forward now saying that Jesus was just a man. I...
