Many years ago, when I was feeling like I could conquer the world, I announced that I was going to make a history book of my Grandpa and Grandma Hansen's family.
|Mae and Arthur Hansen|
I contacted all 10 of their children (my uncles and aunts) and 60+ cousins and asked them to submit a family history and a recent family photo. Reality hit about two months in to the project when only a third of the family had submitted histories and I was already overwhelmed with the daunting task. Although the history book was a futile attempt, I acquired a great treasure from my 95 year old Grandmother. She sent to me her life history, hand-written on notebook paper and "bound" with two pieces of brown yarn. That was so much like Grandma!
How I love these 10 pages filled with snippets of her life and presented in her own special way.
We all have stories to tell. How do you present your story? No matter how you tell your stories, someone is going to want to hear them.
I'm so excited for the Story@Home that is being held March 9th and 10th. This conference will be filled with workshops, performances, and presenters that will help us explore ways to use the power of story in our home! It all takes place in beautiful Salt Lake City.
This conference is sponsored by Cherish Bound and Family Search. It will be the "In" place to be this March. You'll be Informed, Inspired, Intrigued and Involved!
