Preserving Our Family Memories with StoryWorth & Holiday Savings
What is your family legacy? The holidays always make me think about the word, family. Family – the people that live a little too far to see us for the season, but we miss greatly. Family – the people that we lost, reflect and remember, even with a few tears. Family – the people that are here and that we hold onto just a little tighter. But most importantly, I keep thinking about our family’s story – our legacy. What impression are we leaving on this world? What stories are we leaving behind for our children and our children’s children? How will our legacy live on?
The holidays can be a difficult time to find meaningful gifts for family members near and far. But then I learned about preserving our family memories with StoryWorth. Find out why StoryWorth is the unique must-have gift for every family and how to grab exclusive savings for the holidays.
Preserving Our Family Memories
At ages 8 and 3, my kids are growing up too fast. It’s hard to believe that in a few blinks they will leave home and begin their lives as independent souls. Knowing that our time together is short, making sure that we keep our roots in family is so important. And right now, they love digging through old photos of our family. I’m not talking swiping on a phone, folks. We dusted off the old photo albums with *gasp* pages that you actually turn. Novel idea, right?
Is that really you? Is that Daddy? Who is this?
What are you doing?
Where was this?
How long ago was this?
Their curiosity really made me appreciate how much they crave to know our family’s story. There are so many things that I want my kids to know about us, the rich history, the family they never got a chance to meet, our unique imprint. I want them to know how much it means to me to be adopted and what adoption means for them as biracial children.
I want them to know what an amazing woman Obachan was, and how she shaped our family. I want them to understand that the Grandpa they tackle on the floor every month was not only was a dedicated Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, but a successful college baseball pitcher as well. I want them to know where the shape of their noses come from and why they have silly quirks that date back generations. That got me thinking, how can I preserve our family legacy?
How Storyworth Works
Insert StoryWorth. This unique company has found a way to help your family to preserve your story, your legacy – by gathering your stories and memories from family members throughout the year and binding them all in a keepsake book. And it’s easy to use, even for their oldest customer at age 101-years old. First, you sign up for a StoryWorth 1-year subscription which includes: 1 storyteller, unlimited recipients and 1 book.
Then, each week you receive a question to answer. You can choose from the database of 600+ question prompts, or create ones to fit your family. Maybe you want to hear more stories from when your grandma was a child. Or perhaps how your parents met. Funny stories. Serious ones. Make it unique to you! You can either email your response (with the opportunity to add pictures) or record it over the phone (perfect for Grandma and Grandpa). Too busy? You can opt to skip a week too – whatever works for your schedule! Every story is privately recorded and stored.
Once a story is submitted, the storyteller receives the emailed response in real-time. You can then ask questions and add comments. The best part? StoryWorth uses these stories to encourage family communication throughout the year. At the end of the year, all of the stories are combined together into a beautifully bound personalized hardcover book. Your book. Your legacy, in hand. Read, re-read, gift, treasure stories as told by family members. No matter how far they live or how busy your days, StoryWorth makes it easy to tell your family history in a series of easy story prompts and then preserve them for a lifetime.
