How To Have the Conversations of Your Lifetime
Your story can’t be reduced to a text message. Your life is so much larger, and your value is far greater than any number of victories or failures. And only you can truly describe the people, places, and experiences that have shaped who you are today.
When author Ross DeMerchant became a grandfather, he was struck with the privilege and duty of sharing the details of his life before they were lost or forgotten. But where to begin? How do you have those conversations?
You start with what every conversation starts with—letters from the alphabet.
In 26 Letters, DeMerchant offers twenty-six insights into his life, each of which he ties to a different letter of the alphabet. From “A” to “Z” he illustrates how each of us can capture significant details that have forever changed us.
Written with candor, compassion, and a refreshing touch of comedy, his stories read like engaging conversations with a dear grandfather.
So whether you’re a fan of a good memoir or looking for inspiration and guidance on how to tell your own story, or simply looking for a meaningful conversation, 26 Letters entertains, enlightens, and incites rich discussion about what really matters in life.
