Wandering Wednesday #18

Wandering WednesdayHello! And Welcome Back to our Wandering Wednesday Link UP Party!

We are so excited that Jennifer from Heritage Makers is here co-hosting with us this month!

Here is a little bit about Jennifer!

In March 2005, I was minding my own business.  I had three kids under the age of seven, and I didn’t need anything else to do, thanks.  Within about four days, I had three phone calls from good friends telling me about a new company called Heritage Makers that offered high-quality digital storybooks and scrapbooks.  I have always been a big believer in taking photos and recording memories.  It’s just good for the heart and soul.  My friend Cary said, “This is a company made for you.”  By week’s end, I had signed up as a consultant for this company I’d never even tried before.  And that’s saying a lot–not even because I hadn’t ever used the product before, but because I’m a die-hard introvert!

More About Jennifer and Her Blog

And then in November 2009, my blog LifeTales Books was born.  I’ve poured my passion for the power of story, photos, and memory keeping into over 300 blog posts in those 8 years–and I recently celebrated over 50,000 page views!  I am serious about inspiring people to reach higher and enjoy all the benefits of memory-keeping, from a greater sense of purpose to higher self-esteem in kids, and I’ve loved the ways my blog has stretched me to help others in their journey.  I find myself writing about photo organization, time management ideas, and the scientifically-proven by-products of knowing family stories.

My blog has helped me make friends, too!  And that brings us to Michele at Confessions of Parenting.  I never would have met her if we didn’t blog.  I am thrilled that she asked me to be the guest host for Wandering Wednesdays this month!  Michele has managed to find some amazing bloggers to contribute to these weekly linkups, so I hope you always “save the date” each week and make sure you check in to see what’s new.  There are fun posts, inspiring posts, and even yummy posts!

We are so excited to share “Our Favorite Things” With you this week! All my favorite picks will be shared on my Facebook page and I will also pin it to Pinterest! So here we go!

My Favorite Pick!

If you read 25 Things About Me, then you know that I LOOOVE “To Do Lists” and staying organized! Well, my favorite pick this week is from Kate at A Hundred Affections called 21 Free Printables to Help you Organize your Life 


 Jennifer’s Favorite

Like every Wandering Wednesday, it’s so hard to pick a favorite post because there are so many great ones each week!  However, at Wandering Wednesday #17, I really enjoyed “3 Ways to Make More Meaningful Choices This Year” by Lori Jackson at Choosing Wisdom.  I love how she suggested that goals often focus on scarcity (like “don’t eat junk food”), but we’re more likely to choose well if our approach is a focus on abundance.


The Viewers Favorite!

After reviewing the comments from last week there were lots of favorites! Which one was your favorite? We went ahead and broke the tie by choosing Kill the Resolution: 5 Ways to Kick Butt in 2018 by Desire at N.Chi’s World
