The Importance of Story

I am amazed when people say that they don’t have a story to tell. For some reason they don’t see how they have changed someone’s day, week, year or life. We are all put on this earth and it is up to us to make the time productive and meaningful, which can only be defined by the person themselves. Most of us try to live by the golden rule: Do unto others as you want done to you. I encourage you to not only tell someone that you love them but tell them HOW they have made a difference in your life.

Cornerstone projects from Heritage Makers help us tell the story of someone we care about: grandparents, parents, children and even ourselves. Have a search in our template gallery for great ideas.

Here is an example of one of the many options we can provide.

What an inspiration! A little girl and a miracle … all captured in a storybook by her mother. We all have trails at various points in our lives. How we handle them in the present, effects how we (and our children) relate to them in the future. This storybook was created in our 8×8 size which is on special this month for only $39.95.

Watch this beautiful video highlighting the storybook “Emma Bug’s Miracle” which was recognized as a “Best of Heritage” selection in the “Future” category during our annual Heritage Makers convention. This book was written by Anissa Vegh, the mother of Emma who was diagnosed with Metopic Craniosynostosis in January of 2006.
