Family Storytelling Retreat
This event has already passed by. Sorry.
Event DescriptionAs women, we are the keepers of family stories, the makers of memories and traditions.
We are the guardians of the hearth and of heritage.
We keep the light of faith and family aflame across generations.
And that is why I’m so excited to bring together mothers and daughters, sisters and grandmothers for a family storytelling retreat!!
Join me with my sisters and mother to renew yourself and your relationships while recording life stories.
This is a never-to-be-forgotten getaway!
Friday, April 28, 3-6pm and Saturday, April 29, 9am-2pm
Working together as a family team and individually, you’ll:
- Make new memories while preserving old ones
- Use family storytelling to strengthen relationships
- Experience personal growth and healing as you reflect on blessings and challenges
- Ponder and answer powerful questions to write your life story
- Use proven writing and interviewing techniques for capturing family stories
- Share stories and photos with family members near and far using free interactive tools
- Receive inspiration, coaching, and hands-on help
Special thanks to retreat sponsor Twile! You'll love this amazing, free platform we'll use to capture and share stories during our two days together. Twile is a UK-based interactive timeline of everything that’s ever happened in your family. The timeline consists of photos and milestones—such as births, marriages, and deaths—that tell the story of your family from your earliest known ancestor right through to today. Twile was the winner of two innovation awards at RootsTech 2016, including People’s Choice.
Attendees will receive a hand-lettered gift provided by WritingintheStillness.com, where Jamie is changing the world through words!
