What kind of Ancestor will I be?

To go along with the YW lesson on Heritage, I wanted a journaling prompt, similar to what the Red Headed Hostess did. I will have several questions, and the girls can select one or two to answer:

What do I want my family to remember about me?

What legacies do I want to leave behind?

What do I want my children and grandchildren to know about me?

What traditions will help shape my future family towards righteous living?

What can I do now to prepare to become a goodly parent with a heritage of righteous traditions to pass on to my children?

As an added element of FUN, I have photos of all the girls, and have run them through the iphone app, Oldbooth. The photos above are of yours truly, but you get the idea. I’ve put a photostrip together of our whole class, and put it at the top of the journaling prompt handout. I think they will love seeing themselves and their friends as actual “ancestors”, and I hope it will get them thinking about how future generations will look back and remember the legacies that they have the opportunity to leave behind.
