My niece sent me commentary on storytelling and its importance that she wrote and had published in the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News in March 2017. I have provided a link to the interesting piece, hoping it might inspire Down to Earth audience members to consider creating a personal memoir through the lens of developing their own values. A free downloadable storytelling tool/spreadsheet in My Story journaling workbook can assist you. Who have been the important influences in your life, starting as a young child and through different periods of your life? What have been experiences over the years that have helped to form the values you embrace? Taking time to reflect on your life and passing these reflections on to your descendants in a simple memoir can be a unique and lasting gift.
