I'm Racing To Disneyland!
This year, Heritage Makers is holding their annual Conference (we call it a Reunion) in Anaheim, California, home to Disneyland. I am SO excited! Come with me!
Join my consultant team and help others digitize their photos, document their stories and pass on family treasures. As a mother of 2 elementary children, and a toddler, I love the flexibility that working from home offers, especially in the summer time. I can help you achieve your goals with the same flexibility.

Why We Do What We Do
I believe that every person should make at least one life-story book. Take the time to examine the life of a loved one who has passed, or sit down with a parent or grandparent. Ask those tough and sensitive questions, and put all of the answers in print. You will not regret it. You can only grow from it, and it will become a priceless family keepsake. (And now with our new scanning services, you can add their old photos VERY easily!) One of my clients is currently working on her own life story, and I keep thinking how lucky her children are. What a beautiful treasure she will be giving them and her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and so on.
People have said to me, "My life isn't exciting; why would I want to make a book about it?" This is simply not true. Your life story is very important to others. Who you are, where you come from, and the choices you've made-no matter how ordinary they may seem-have shaped many people's lives.
This became especially apparent to me this past weekend while attending my grandmother's funeral. It was obvious to me that she touched MANY people's lives, though she probably never realized it.
Imagine if people 100 years ago had been able to digitally preserve their stories. Wouldn't you love and treasure a book about your great-great grandparents? To know what life was like for them, and to know about their obstacles and triumphs would be a very special gift. We now have the ability to give that gift to future generations. How awesome is that?
