The YourStory Story

When I was in college, I didn’t have money to buy wedding gifts for my friends and roommates who were getting married, so I offered to write their love stories and print them in nice little print-on-demand books. Every book that I wrote brought at least one person to tears. Sometimes it was the bride-to-be, sometimes it was the mother of the bride-to-be, and sometimes it was even the groom-to-be, but you could always count on someone shedding tears of joy when reading about their love story. After seeing how meaningful these stories were to his friends, I’ve been trying to figure out how to offer them to more people ever since.

I couldn’t be more excited to be offering love story books to anyone with a spectacularly epic love story (which, of course, is anyone with a love story!) through YourStory. I hope that you’ll let me turn your spectacularly epic love story into a keepsake that you will treasure throughout your loves together and beyond.

About Michael Pickett

Back when all of my friends wanted to be astronauts and baseball players when they grew up, I wanted to be a writer (and an astronaut baseball player). I’ve always been fascinated by he art and craft of storytelling. 

My wife and I had a spectacularly epic love story, which I (with a little help from her) captured in a book for our first wedding anniversary (you can see the title page of our love story book on the right).

Other things to know about me: I love my family (we have three kids now), reading, writing, watching movies, and going on hikes. My favorite food is pizza, my favorite sport is baseball, and my favorite college football team is the BYU Cougars. I try to be kind to everyone, even the people that make me mad (though sometimes I’m not as good at that as I wish I was), and on Sundays you’ll find me at church.
