You are who you are because of your family, and My Family’s Story explores the lessons they’ve taught you and encourages you to record all the sweet and unique things that make them your family.
In My Family’s Story, both thought-provoking and lighthearted writing prompts and guided exercises are organized into chapters based on the different types of family members to help break big families into more manageable pieces. My Family’s Storyjump-starts the reflective writing process to open your awareness of your family and to catalog what family means to you. This guided journal is for you to fill in, but it also encourages interactions and deep conversations with your favorite family members.
Each chapter asks you to elaborate on relationships and memories with specific parts of your family. Starting with Your Story and progressing through Your Parents’ Story, Your Siblings’ Story, Your Grandparents’ Story, Your Aunts and Uncles’ Story, and Your Cousins’ Story. These chapters are meant to fit most family structures, but feel free to fill them out as you see fit: with found family or by filling in more entries with only your favorite family member.
Every family has a plethora of stories just waiting to be written down. They hide in the most innocuous places: anecdotes that are always told at family holidays, the wisdom you’ll carry for the rest of your life, and treasured memories that will make you smile on the worst days. Stringing these beautiful stories together and recording them in a beautiful keepsake journal is a wonderful way to honor family members, whether they are living or no longer with us.
With so much of our lives and contact going digital, the Creative Keepsakes journals offer an intimate way to nurture your connection with yourself and the people around you. An entertaining way to get off your screen, these guided and free-form journals are great for writers and artists alike. Each journal offers content around a different theme, including silly prompts for a laugh, random yet thoughtful questions, inspiration for art and composition, interactive prompts to learn about your heritage, and blank interiors on high-quality paper stock to use as your creative canvas. Beautifully designed and full of mindful prompts, channel your inspiration as you put pen (or pencil, or marker, or crayon!) to paper to learn more about yourself, your talents, and the people you love.
