Life Lessons Through Life Stories
Today I came across yet some more buzz about the kind of work we do at LifeStories Alive http://www.lifestoriesalive.com/ . Sue Shellenbarger recently wrote a Wall Street Journal article entitled "Life Stories: Children Find Meaning in Old Family Tales". She is featured on a blog called The Juggle - "WSJ.com on choices and tradeoffs people make as they juggle work and family". Please her read a recent post "Passing on Life Lessons Through Family Stories" http://blogs.wsj.com/juggle/2009/03/11/passing-on-life-lessons-through-family-stories/ . Sometimes it's hard for people to realize that the connection to our past is not found in facts alone, but are truly remembered through stories. And the best way to remember those stories is to record them while the storytellers, the people who lived the stories, are still around!
