Childhood Memories Friday

When I was teaching school, and now as a mom, I am often reminded of something from my childhood.  I love sharing these stories with my students and children, and I’ve been gratified to see that they love the stories as well.

I began thinking it would be fun to write these memories down.  “Childhood Memories Friday” has helped me to become more intentional about it.

Each Friday for a few years, I posted a specific childhood memory. If you’d like to read these, search the blog for “Childhood Memories.” If you’d like to read my childhood memoir of growing up in a small Indiana town, it’s called “I Love to Tell the Story.”

I hope you’re encouraged to write down your own childhood memories!

There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again”
