Everything to Remember
Steph Jagger lost her mother before she lost her. Stricken with an incurable disease that slowly erases all sense of self, her mother struggles to remember her favorite drink, her favorite song, and—perhaps most heartbreaking of all—Steph herself. As the woman who loved and raised her begins to slip away, she makes a promise: to write her mother’s story before it’s entirely lost. Aware of her mother’s waning memory, she proposes a camping trip—which her mother agrees to embark upon. An adventure full of horseback riding, hiking, and “tenting” out west quickly turns into one woman’s reflection on the mysteries tucked inside ourselves and our ancestry—and what it means to love someone who doesn’t quite remember the person she spent her lifetime becoming. Jagger is a sought-after mentor and coach whose offerings guide people toward a deeper understanding of themselves and their stories. Her work, including speaking and facilitating, lies at the intersection of loss, the nature of deep remembrance, and the personal journey of re-creation.
