As part of our ongoing “Family History in 15 Minutes” series of weekly journaling prompts, today we celebrate National Children’s Day by recording a childhood memory. Don’t worry about recording the most memorable or the most important—just record any memory that comes to mind. Any memory recorded helps preserve part of your story, part of your childhood. And you can help your children record their memories while they’re fresh in their mind, because the things that matter most to them now might not be what comes to their mind years from now.
Make it easy to record your family’s history one journaling page—and just 15 minutes—at a time. This free printable journaling prompt helps you and your family jot down 10 things they know. After all, what greater treasure can we leave to our families in the future (and now!) than sharing the beliefs that are most important to us?
Today’s “Family History in 15 Minutes” challenge is to describe yourself in one memory with the help of our free printable journaling prompt for family history. At first, that sounds SO hard. But if you think about it, there’s probably a time or two when you felt truly free to be yourself without worrying at all what others thought. Or maybe in a moment you felt completely at home. Those are pretty good clues to lead you to a memory that captures AN essence (not necessarily the only essence) of you.
