About the Book: Personal possessions tell a beautiful story of a person’s life. Finding Peace, One Piece at a Time helps to capture and share these stories by providing tools for how to thin, repurpose, and redistribute these possessions so they continue to be with us today and for future generations. In the digital era, personal possessions include not only physical objects but also the accumulated data of a lifetime. These physical and digital footprints combine into an extension of ourselves and what we signify. Finding a new home for these items helps maintain a connection to those who are no longer physically with us. Their possessions embody memories that should be saved, shared, and treasured in the hands of those who want to forever be connected.

Amazon Reviewer: “This is such an important book. No matter who you have lost in your life this book is a great primer on how to deal with all of the material possessions they have left and the emotions that go with deciding what to do with them.” – Read More
