Mom in Her Own Words

Several years ago, Kim Kerrigan, the president and cofounder of Corporate Classrooms, created a memoir of his mother, Evelyn (Schneider) Kerrigan, from her letters written to him as well as numerous entries she made in a journal he gave to her. The letters and journal entries written by Evelyn Kerrigan draw on her vivid impressions of family, friends, and events that left an indelible mark on her from her early and middle-age years in her hometown of Clinton, Massachusetts to her later years in Eau Gallie, Florida.

Now, because of a surge in interest in memoir writing, Mr. Kerrigan has reissued his book Mom in Her Own Words. And he is also using this book as the basis of the memoir writing classes he is currently offering to people of all ages at libraries, senior centers, churches, and other community venues.

So, if you are someone who truly wants to share your written thoughts with others now (and in the future) and leave a permanent legacy of your life and your individual personality and experiences, Mom in Her Own Words will be immensely helpful to you. This practical and insightful book will not only motivate you to begin your own memoir. It will also ensure that your loved ones (and many others) truly know who you are, who you were, and what you want people to remember about you and your unique journey through life now and long after you are gone.


One additional bit of news regarding Mom In Her Own Words: Mr. Kerrigan recently began work on a new, full-length book (as yet untitled) expanding on the remarkable people, tragic incidents, and historic events that deeply affected Evelyn Kerrigan during her life. This new book is certain to fill you with admiration for a seemingly ordinary woman who faced extraordinary circumstances and met life head-on with an exceptional grace, optimism, and zest for life. Equally important, it is bound to inspire you with its many reminders of why each day of our life can and should be important.
