Me on KSL Studio 5: “How to Teach Kids Values”
To view sample pages from his book:
Sunday I had the opportunity of being interviewed by Jerry Johnston of the Deseret News. Here’s the article! What a great guy, and a great way to continue to help people do what I love to do. Sincere thanks.
When I first started learning about Ethical Wills, I created my first Organizer to help clients feel confident and successful when using this life story tool. After a few years, lots of presentations, and listening to the needs and worries of people, I have developed this new Organizer to better meet those needs and simplify the whole process!
This is what I’ve always envisioned my Organizer to be! The new exterior features are a bright fun cover design, then I’ve chosen a harder cover (still can’t find anyone that can spiral punch a hard cover), and used spiral o-binding (makes it look better, and is more durable!). On the interior, I’ve kept the same acid-free paper so taking notes or writing your Ethical Will directly on the paper will stand the test of time. I’ve also included a lot more prompts to guide you along the journey.
Ethical Wills truly alleviate the feelings of being overwhelmed when trying to write your life story, life legacy, or memoir (however you want to think about it). The are simple, concise, yet so powerful, life-changing, and life-altering. Impact your family today, by sharing WHY you are the way you are, and write your own Ethical Will!

I will be presenting Using Ethical Wills to “Write Memories Worth Reading” at the UGA Genealogy Conference Aug 19 & 20 at the Larry H. Miller Campus of Salt Lake Community College. Register here: UGA Conference
Come learn how to leave a legacy that will actually get read! I will also be selling my NEW (and much improved) ORGANIZER!
I will be giving 4 tips on how to “Write Memories Worth Reading” on KSL Studio 5 TV tomorrow. Watch the show, or check back when I’ve posted it. Valuable tips on what to write!
Personal History goes beyond Genealogy by recording life stories and experiences rather than only the dates they were lived.
I believe that everyone wants to be remembered. Many even desire a Cinderella Story, of rising to great fame and fortune, desiring to be remembered by more than just their family; to leave their mark on the world. While some will have history books, movies, or the like recorded of their time on earth, for the majority of us, our fame will arise from the lives that we touched, and how great of an impact we had on another human being. This is how we will be remembered.
Personal History is taking the time to write what is important to you, what values you have lived by, what drives you, what knowledge and wisdom you want to pass on to your future generations, etc. It is also including the funny moments, the best friends, times you got in trouble, and the things you did for entertainment. A simple moment, with the time taken to reflect, can become profound and enlightening, and these profound insights can have lasting impacts when shared with others.
How do you want to be remembered? What impact do you want to have? Share your LIFE and its MEANING with others and you will be remembered for more than just the dates you lived.
I’m so excited to announce my NEW WEBSITE! It’s been a lot of hard work, and I’m so happy it’s done, and up, and ready for business!
Thanks to especially my family for all their support and insight into all of this. It’s amazing how much strength you truly give.
I will again be presenting at the South Davis “Family History Fair” on March 5. I will present Ethical Wills as a means to “Write Memories Worth Reading”. I will present the same presentation in 2 sessions at 10:40 and 1:20.

Can’t wait to see you there!
Benjamin Franklin advised: “If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.”
Another huge thanks to KSL TV! This time thank you Courtney Orton!! It was a lot of fun, and some great ideas to help YOU and KIDS get involved in documenting your life!
This was a great opportunity. HUGE thanks to Brooke Walker at KSL Studio 5.

Do you know where to start on your PH?
Start with the stuff that matters!
For motivation, walk around your house and see what is hanging on your walls or on display on shelves, etc. Write the story as to why that item is important, and why you are displaying it.
