The Story of LifeBio

"Record life’s adventures and capture your story. Every life deserves a book." –Beth Sanders, Founder of LifeBio

Beth Sanders became intrigued with the importance of life story recording after an impromptu tape-recorded interview with her grandmother in 1993. Through this 90-minute interview, Beth gained a new perspective and stronger connection with this ordinary but extraordinary woman who lived so close by. In fact, grandma lived just across the street and later next door to Beth’s childhood home.

Grandma’s stories covered everyday matters about her parents and grandparents, growing up, good work, marriage, raising a family, and beliefs and values. Just ordinary life stories spanning most of the 20th Century! Beth saw her grandmother as a whole person—she wasn’t just grandma anymore.

As a result of the interview, Beth realized the importance of bridging the generations to share life and to build relationships together. She wanted to help others gain a new sense of connection with their loved ones too. LifeBio has achieved it’s goal of making it simple for extraordinary, everyday people to have a chance to say what matters most. LifeBio has helped thousands of individuals and senior living communities, skilled nursing centers, hospice organizations, hospitals, home care providers, and more. The product’s positive impact has been studied by Iowa State University’s gerontology program.

It’s time to tell your story. There’s no time like the present and no better gift to the future.
