JOURNALING • One List at a Time
Personal and Family Histories are a big deal to us. Those who have the family stories or even know snippets about their ancestors cherish them. Those who don't have them, wish. Wish that there was something that they knew about the people they came from. Wish they could have a connection. Wish their ancestors left something.

The Ebook is found in our Etsy Shop. (If you're on our mailing list we've emailed a few sample pages to you.) You can buy ours or make one of your own. Just make a little list. Begin today.

It's easy to write about day to day happenings (a normal journal), but lists require more information - like your example of what to do or not do on the Sabbath, that's not something I would ever think about writing in a regular journal! This way allows the opportunity to share more information, that's even more interesting!
