A Personal History Snapshot: Autobiography vs. Biography vs. Memoir vs. Genealogy
Play • 11 min

Have you ever wondered what the differences are between 

  • autobiography, 
  • biography, 
  • memoir, and 
  • genealogy?

Sometimes they overlap, but each has a distinct purpose.

If you plan to write one of these genres - or are in the midst of writing one - do you know what to include ... or NOT to include?

In honor of May being Personal History Awareness Month, I'm continuing the personal history theme and discussing these various legacy genres from a Biblical perspective.

So tune in, let me know your thoughts (feel free to DM me on IG!), and share the episode with your writing friends!
