What customers are saying

I was thinking about Christmas presents for our children and my wife Tessa shared the idea of a unique approach to a legacy book created by Andy Kidd. Putting the content together was a fun exercise from photos and family details but also stimulating, thought provoking questions that Andy would ask as he gently guided me through the project. My family were delighted with the outcome and I am very grateful to Andy for his skilful direction. One important reflection that I had during this time was "You don't know when you are going to die so this is not a decision to procrastinate on!"
"You have made my book beautifully and sensitively. Thank you so much."
Jennet Christie

Thank you so much, dear Andy. This work you are offering is truly a gift to our world. I would encourage anyone to embark on this Life Lessence journey with you.

By reflecting on questions that Andy skilfully presented - it was like progressively walking through a door into a new freedom. Suddenly ‘values’ - who we have become through our life’s journey - rather than ‘valuables’ (what we have achieved) became so much more significant. I came to see what ‘achievement’ really is to me, in a whole new light. With that, came a huge sense of relief.

I have received so much freedom and insight from this process. I feel in a completely different place of lightness than when I started, and so much more able to just Be in each moment without forward thinking.

Life Lessence is a record of the essence of you.

What does your life stand for?

Do you have life lessons you only wish your grandchildren could know and benefit from? Does your family want something to remember you by in 50 years?

Your memories and lessons have led to unique wisdom worth sharing.  Your experience need not be forgotten. 

I am passionate about recording the wisdom of your life and documenting it for you to have as a legacy for now and future generations.

You can give this gift to yourself, or to your parents, family or friends. It can be kept private or shared as you wish. The very process of making the record gives you pause to recollect your most essential truths.

Your Life Lessence Book is not a Family History nor a Biography. Your personal Legacy Book focusses on what your life stands for, what you have learned and value in this lifetime.
