Wishing you all #shanahtovah . Happy #Jewish #NewYear 5778!! The #holidaytable is a prime place for remembering (in)famous #familystories. Close #family members with all sorts of complex #relationships, #timepressure and stress, #traditions to uphold, and a large #feast to prepare - what could go wrong? Thank God our family's meal went smoothly this year 😊 . #lifestories #lashalmemoirs
Polly Petersen, wife of LDS area Seventy Steven Petersen recounted a story that occurred on their family ranch. They had set up a miniature blacksmith shop in honor of Elder Petersen’s great grandfather, Robert Anderson. Along with the blacksmith shop, they included the story of his life so family members could read it and get to know him. She talked about her young grandson reading the story and working in the blacksmith shop. “He was in awe of the story. It made everything we did worth the effort,” Polly said. She watched as her grandson took in every part of the story and they way he lit up while in the blacksmith shop created in their ancestor’s honor. “Teaching each other priceless family history helps us to become friends with them,” Polly said. She was part of the keynote address at the #Ogden Family History Conference last week.

A little bit about me - I dislike major conflict so much even video games (the type where the protagonist is being chased by something) set me on edge. So to say that I'm feeling unsettled by this nuclear standoff is an understatement. I'm working on combating my anxiety by getting lost in my work and the meditative intricacies of carving. Today I came across some images of 13th Century bronze work from the collection of the Oni (or Ooni) of Ife. When I was younger my dad always used to say we were descended from kings and queens. Since he also told me he had to fight a lion to become a man I pretty much thought he was telling tales. Seeing these familiar features in 800 year old royal figures that hold part of my last name from my ancestral home land fills me with an indescribable strength. To think of all the things that happened during the past several centuries that brought me face to face with this image helps me believe I can get through the now. . . . . . . #dawlinejaneart #dailypractice #africandiaspora #stampcarving #blockprinting #reliefprint #heritage #familystories #africaninspired #yoruba #getcreative #oaklandartist #studiotime #100daysofancestry

With our upcoming anniversary at @dover_pottery I've been feeling nostalgic and going through old photos. These are some from 1984, a year after we first opened. #nostalgia #seagrovepotters #familystories #oldphotos
"Oh you're working? Ok, I'll just lay my little head right here on the tip of this corner. Am I distracting you? I'm sorry. I'll just stare at you quietly until you're finished...are you done yet?!" . Meet, Rory! (Yes I have a Gilmore Girls obsession 😆) One of his favourite things to do is squish in beside me (the tighter the squeeze the better) and keep me company as I work. Double tap if your doggy helper is sometimes more distracting than helpful! 🐶
We thought it was just allergies and I got rid of all the "flowers" in our kitchen but it turns out we have a man down- my husband is sick. I've been covering the kids in thieves, pushing vitamins and wiping down everything B touches. We go to Disney in 20 days and those 20 days are packed tight...ain't NObody in this family got time for this. 😷 #allergies #sick #hellofall #weeds #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #bouquet #weedbouquet #littlegift #sickday #countdowntodisney #paphotography #familystories #daddyissick #mancold2017 #mancold #mandown #thieves #essentialoils #pleasekeepushealthy

Old libraries are cool, but to archive objects from your ancestors, go digital. You can use a photos platform from your computer, but you might consider using a program like #libib to inventory your items. #SaturdaySpotlight⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #Leaflet #myfamilyleaf #familyhistory #familystories #writeitdown #writersofinstagram #family #storytelling #stories #genealogy
