Have you always wanted to write your family stories but have never gotten around to it or known where to begin? Perhaps you’ve started but are stuck or overwhelmed. Good news! Capturing your family stories can be easy and fun with Brenda Hudson’s “story project” technique. In this webinar, you will learn three different story projects, each resulting in a different kind of family story that takes less than 30 minutes.
