Are you participating in the LDS church’s #LIGHTtheWORLD challenge this month? (If you want to learn more check out Mormon.org)
Day two is Jesus honored his parents, and you can too…
USING FAMILY HISTORY!
What a better way to honor your parents’ then learning about an ancestor!
So today go check out familysearch.org, click on the memory tab and find a great story about an ancestor! Bonus: give your mom or dad a call and share that story. I think they’ll be touched you took the time to learn about their family!
Call you parents and ask them their favorite story about their parents! Make sure you write it down, maybe even add it to familysearch.org.
Record your parents talking about their childhood. Come up with questions beforehand. It’s hard to just start talking about yourself. Make sure you share this with family!
Write down something you learned from your parents. Make sure you include an example! I recently wrote about working with my dad for a school assignment (I’m going back to college), I plan on expanding on that assignment and adding it to my life history.
What did you choice to honor your parents? What did you learn about your family?
