Family History: Making it MY-story

Its so good to be back on the blog! I know it hasn't been that long, but it feels like forever out here!
So this last week Sister Pack and I have been talking a lot about Family History and sharing our stories.
It has been so wonderful for me to learn and hear the stories about my ancestors. Where they came from, what they did, what life was like for them and so many other stories.
As I have heard and read these stories I have been so blessed to come closer to my family and feel like I have come to personally know my ancestors.
But some people ask Why? What is the point in knowing all of these random stories about my ancestors?
Well the point is simple.
A photograph of family members looking at a photo album, with a quote by Elder William R. Walker: “Know the stories of faith and sacrifice that led our forefathers to join the Lord’s Church.”
Families are ordained of God. They are so special. I love my family so much and you can read more about that in my other post Families can Be Together Forever. Because families are ordained by God it means that we will eventually be with them again, if we life our lives in a way that we are worthy of it.
