From Heart to Paper

One-on-One support for Writing Letters From Your Heart

Sharing your love, gratitude, wisdom, hopes and dreams shouldn’t be hard.

In fact it should be a joyful experience!

You’re a great friend, sibling, parent, child… and you want to share the feelings in your heart for the people you care about – your children, parents, siblings, mentors and friends. You wonder if the people who matter to you really know how you feel and you want them to know.

You have stories and wisdom, hopes, dreams, love and gratitude to share with someone special. But you struggle for a great way to tell them –a way that they’ll hear and also feel, all your love, care and gratitude.

You wonder if the young people in your life really know how much you love and support them, you worry that all the outside noise is drowning out what’s important for them to know. You wish for close and trusting relationships and want them to feel confident that they have your loving support always. You want a deep connection filled with love and trust.

It’s easy to put off sharing your deep thoughts and feelings. You worry about saying the right thing or how to say what you really feel. You mean to say what you want to say, but you just keep putting it off.

You want to share how you feel – maybe even in a letter – but you just worry about how, or you can’t seem to get it done.

You want to share your love and gratitude in a way that feels good for your reader and you.

You’re already doing so much to create connections and deep bonds with your friends, children, siblings, mentors, and other special people in your life. What if you could do one simple thing to deepen your connection?

  • Imagine getting a letter from a friend or your parents explaining what they love about you.
  • Imagine writing a letter like that to your friend or relative to show them what you admire about and hope for them. Imagine sharing your gratitude with a mentor or colleague who has helped you along your path, or an uncle who always sees you how you want to be seen. Or the friend who always has your back.
  • Imagine writing a letter like that to your child for a birthday or as they head off to the first day of high school or graduate from college. Imagine sharing family history or wisdom to guide your child before a big job interview or to show them what you hope for them.

  • Imagine them reading that letter and feeling seen how they wish to be seen, being loved, honored and supported by your words. Imagine them having a down day and then reading your words and feeling uplifted. And then imagine them reading that letter again when you’re not right there to support them, hearing your love and care when they need it most.

Letters from your heart are tangible objects that your reader can return to again and again. And they will.

You wish for close and trusting relationships with your children, friends, parents, relatives and mentors – for them to know that you love and admire them, that you appreciate what they do for you, and you want to share your gratitude.

You’re ready to connect with your special people on a deeper level, to really show them what matters and have them hear and understand you.

To have them feel your love and know you are there for them.

You want to support them even when you aren’t right there with them.

You want them to hear your voice and to feel seen, loved and encouraged.

Let me show you how.

I’m a transformative writing coach helping people like you connect with the special people in your life – friends, mentors and family members including kids.  I help you write meaningful letters, using your stories, to share love, gratitude and hopes and dreams with the people you care about, building deeper connections and stronger relationships.

When you’ve written your letter and given it to your reader, you will:

  • Know you touched them with words from your heart; that you shared what matters with them and that they heard you and are grateful for your love.
  • Feel confidence in your skills using stories to connect with special people in a way that is joyful, fun and meaningful to them and creates happiness for you – knowing that you gave them a great gift.
  • Experience deeper connection and stronger bonds between you and someone you care about.
  • Express your gratitude for your relationships and the people you love.

Your letter will be a gift from you that they can read over and over; they’ll feel your love and support every time they read your words.

When I set out to write a letter to my 16 year old daughter, I had no idea the wonderful internal journey Melanie would take me on. Not only will writing the letter be a treasure for my daughter, but the experience has been a wonderful memory for me. Recollecting memories and soul-filing times spent and putting them to paper was a deep and connecting experience. Melanie knows how to guide you to the meaning of what your heart wants to express and helps you confidently find the words to the convey the emotions of your stories. I am so grateful for this experience and highly recommend time with Melanie for this amazing gift of Heart to Paper Letters!

Melanie was just amazing and sensitively guided me through the art of writing a letter to my son for graduation from college. Her passion and belief in what she is doing was evident through the entire process. With Melanie’s support and encouragement and genuine caring, the process of writing felt so very satisfying. I look forward to more opportunities to work with Melanie again.  She really is a master!

Here’s what clients say about working with me:
Melanie helped my husband and me write letters for our daughter when she graduated from high school. We didn’t know where to begin, but Melanie expertly guided us with some prompts that helped us think deeply about what we wanted to convey to our daughter. She also suggested we ask our parents and other special elders in our lives to write letters too with advice on how to ask them. I never would have thought to do this, but what a treasure to have their wisdom imparted as our daughter transitions into adulthood! I wholeheartedly recommend Melanie. She is fantastic!
Bonnie Kirkpatrick

When my mom approached her 85th birthday, Melanie recommended that I write her a Letter From My Heart, which subsequently turned into a photo book.  It features all of our favorite mother/daughter experiences, with the Letter unfolding cleverly on each page. Memories we shared, lessons I learned, traits I admire, my profound love and respect for her… all captured into a perfect keepsake.  For my mom, of course, it was an absolute treasure, but the unexpected gift that I received was the experience of reviewing and processing the many aspects of our multi-faceted relationship.  Kudos to Melanie for this brilliant idea and deftly coaching me. I am forever grateful.
Carolyn Preis
