Offering Hope and Encouragement in the Midst of Sorrow

  There are a variety of memory book ideas, from the simple, to the extravagant. The most important thing to remember is the need to use materials that will not discolor, deteriorate, or damage the things we want to preserve. Many of us have learned the hard way as we peel what remains of our children's baby pictures out of self sticking photo albums!

The thought of compiling a memory book can be overwhelming. If you are able to sort through your mind and organize your thoughts regarding what are the most important values you want to share with your children, it will help. Prioritized what things you feel will be lost if you are no longer here to share them with my children.

Using significant events in the lives of our children to make memory books is also helpful. Birthdays and holidays can become special with even the simplest memory book. 

Meet my mommy/daddy memory books are a great tool for our families as time passes and we become friends with people who never knew our spouse.  A book with photos and memories can be shared with friends so they have a more complete understanding of our family. 

Tapes can be made tapes to go along with your memory books. This can be especially helpful with small children.
