About 'the author'

Have you ever wondered about your grandfather’s favorite song or about your grandmother’s hopes and dreams? I have, and this is how I came up with the idea for this book. My name is Lavinia Bakker. I never knew my grandfather, and I would have liked to know so much more about him than the few stories my parents told me. 

Surely you have a person in your life whose memory (even if it’s your own) you wish to treasure. This book offers space to record beliefs and life lessons, to be cherished forever. 

If you don’t feel the need to give this journal to someone special, how about bringing it along on a vacation with friends or filling it in yourself? The answers and conversations that this book spark will brighten your life.
