Do you feel bad every time someone mentions keeping a journal or writing a family history? I faithfully wrote in my journal during my mission for my church. Once I returned home and started working on my masters degree, I did not have the time to write in a journal. I have used to other and for me funner methods to keep a history...writing letters to a dear friend and keeping copies of these letters, in case my daughter ever wants to read about herway life and mine.
My second way to save family stories aand stories from my life is to write and publish for friends and family a family cookbook with the story of the recipe.
