Take the Quarter Challenge – Quarter 1 “Stories and Pictures”

To help you be successful during the first quarter of the "Take the Quarter Challenge,"  I thought it would be helpful to post some ideas on how to add stories and pictures about our ancestors.  Here is a list of activities, videos and ideas that you can use in your wards and families.

#1  Here is a link from our Youth Conference that we called "The Dash" as well as one of my favorite videos that talks about the importance of pictures below. 

#2  How to Attach a Picture, visit this recent blog post from our 40 Day Temple Challenge.  A powerful new tool is the Memories App from FamilySearch that you can download for free from the App Store.  It will help you preserve pictures, stories and audio recordings in a snap!  Read about a recent blog post we shared about how to use this App.  One of these days we will get a better video posted, but for now I hope it helps learn how to use the Memory App.

#3  Record It!  Here are a few tools to Record your stories and click on the image to pick up this "Mealtime Matters" freebie to help start the conversation.


#4  Use the "My Family: Stories that Bring Us Together" pamphlet.  Find out how here.

#5  A fun Family Home Evening Lesson that can be used Monday night or when doing home or visiting teaching.  Get the lesson and videos here.
