Our passion is for collecting inspirational stories.  We believe by sharing these stories, we’re adding a special piece of history for future generations? It seems like these days book-of-storieshistory has taken a back seat to so many other current events and daily activities. For all the caregivers in the world, you are an important conduit for collecting stories from your amazing loved ones and clients. We know you’re very busy, if not overloaded, with all the daily things you’re tasked to do. One Legacy wants to help, by collecting many of the stories you hear every day. Whether it as at home, hospitals, or senior communities, every day you hear stories that you wish you could share with others. Let’s start preserving them!

“Share Your Stories About Life During the Great Depression”

Now, thanks to our sponsors and senior community partners, we’ll be hosting several sessions at senior communities in St. Louis and Metro East Illinois.  Hitz Memorial Home in Alhambra IL,  Meridian Village in Edwardsville IL, and Autumn View Gardens in St Louis MO, will be offering residents and families beginning the week of October 24.  We’ll keep you posted with results! We’re honored to invite all seniors who lived during that time period (1927 – 1935) to share your story too and help us preserve a piece of history. It’s simple. Just share a story by selecting the Share Your Story link on this page, or contact us at 618-960-7252. if you or your group would like One Legacy to host a FREE session, please contact Mike Stith at mstith@onelegacy.com. It will be a very meaningful experience!

My Best,


Mike Stith – Founder, One Legacy®

Many thanks to our Sponsors and Partners!

This summer we began inviting sponsors and partners to join One Legacy in spreading the word about Legacy Sharing services to families and groups in Metro East IL and St. Louis MO.  These businesses understand the value of meaningful reminisce activities for seniors, and are kind enough to help support our program so we can continue to offer free consulting and personal story publishing.  Also with their help, One Legacy will participate in caregiving events and conferences throughout the area. We sincerely thank the following community minded businesses for their great support!

Others have low vision from macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, trauma or glaucoma. There are listeners who can no longer turn the pages of a newspaper because they have had a stroke or have Parkinson’s disease. Anyone who cannot read a traditional newspaper because of a disability is eligible for service from MindsEye.  Amelia Christ, Community Outreach Coordinator, says the team at MindsEye themselves enjoyed reading the stories from One Legacy enough that they are now reading them on the air!

This faithful service gives seniors the freedom to make themselves at home in a warm, friendly atmosphere. They participated in a pilot program for Legacy Sharing this summer, and residents got to experience the power and meaning of sharing and writing stories. Ashley Wheeler, Executive Director says “We were very happy with the participation and comments that our residents shared during the program. Several of our residents attended every week, and loved it!”
