Have you visited nostalgic places from your childhood? Had they changed from how you remember them? What were your feelings when you were there? Comment below or tag us in a post. Here is @garyt3271 experience: “Here’s a family history throwback that I’ve been looking at today. This is the Three Horseshoes Pub in the hamlet of Winkwell, near Hemel Hempstead and located by the Grand Union Canal. I remember visiting this pub as a kid playing on the swing bridge over the canal, and I went back myself in 2011. Those visits were because of the family connection in the other photo. Although the building is all a pub now, in around 1948 the door at the end was the entrance to my Great Great Grandmother’s cottage. She’s Lavinia Molyneux, the lady seated, with my Dad on her knee and his Mum & Dad (my grandparents) behind, along with another relative. I love a bit of history!” #familyhistory #findingrootshealingbranches #familyconnection #childhoodmemories #familyphoto #familyhistoryheals #familystories
What a powerful post @brandonmiller3333 shared about understanding some of the causes of his grandfather’s struggles with alcohol. Thanks for sharing Brandon. If you have stories of family that you would like to share- tag email@example.com. “This was my mom’s dad, Clyde. He died a couple years before I was born. He grew up with heartache after heartache. Truly a childhood of trauma. He began drinking heavily at age 12. Here’s a thumbnail sketch of his life: Lots of grief - Mom died, he was 6 Brother died, he was 8 Grandma died, he was 9 Grandpa died, he was 10 Brother died, he was 17 Married, he was 18 Dad died, he was 23 Plecker “One Drop Rule”, he was 24 Divorce, he was ~ 26 His alcoholism is what brought him down in the end. I understand that he was a sweet, kind soul, and was wildly talented with music. Wish I could have met you, Grandpa! #daddyhoodrocks #marriagerules #ancestry #genealogy #familyhistory @findingroots.healingbranches” #findingrootshealingbranches #familyhistoryheals #familystories #familyconnection #familytrials
What have you learned from the hardships your family has endured? How has it affected your life or your family culture? Comment below. This photo and caption from @thewhimsicallady captures some of her feelings. “Thinking a lot about my ancestors and the trials and tribulations they faced. These are my GGGparents Henricus and Dorothea with their three youngest children. The photo was taken about 1913. Dorothea is my GGGfather’s second wife, his first wife died young. Altogether there were at least 12 children born that we can find, and only 7 survived to adulthood. How do you survive that? How did they endure? How did they go on? 😢😔 As a side note... The little girl standing on the right... She survived to adulthood, married a very famous (at the time) athlete, but died tragically when a gasoline tank exploded in the kitchen cottage where they were vacationing. 😔” #findingrootshealingbranches #familyconnection #familystories #familyhistory #familytrials #familyempathy
What family features do you see in yourself that connect you to people in your family? Comment below. Here is what @tendermemories had to say “This is one of my favorite wedding photos from our wedding. It is a photo of me wearing my grandmother’s wedding and engagement rings. When I look at this photo, though, I don’t just see a reminder of my grandmother- I also see my mother’s long fingers and delicate wrists. I remember her hands so much as a child. I noticed the time she spent polishing her nails, doing the dishes, reading me stories, writing with her blue ballpoint pens. I noticed how her hands turned the steering wheel as she drove and we had long deep conversations. I remember those hands feeding babies, changing diapers, motioning dramatically as she spoke about one of her many passions. I remember how she offered hugs and wiped away tears- all with those hands.” #findingrootshealingbranches #familyconnection #familyhistoryheals #weddingphotos #familyjewlery #DNA #familyfeatures
We love how @celiafavorite created art inspired by her grandmother’s clothing. Do you love vintage clothes? Do you have any old clothes from your family?

🙌🏾CHOICES!🙌🏾 . Do you watch my Instagram stories! This is an example of the stuff I share to all the viewers of my stories!!! You get all sorts of great tips, stories and behind the scenes! 🙌🏾 Today I shared a story about the power of choices and children hitting you. 🙌🏾 Limits, consent, safety, choice, control. 🙌🏾 If they can, they will. Let’s let them feel the consequences of those choices. 🙌🏾 I update my stories daily will all the goods!
✨ Today is International Day of #Families ! ✨ As a Life Coach for Teens and Parents, I support families on building pathways to #Connected Hearts, trust, and #communication . ✨ I’m constantly facilitating conversations about what “family” means to each individual, as well as what the experience of the family #community is like for all members. ✨ Pause for a moment and consider how you define the term family. Hold an image (or multiple) of your family in your mind. ✨ Check out my May article on @raisingworldchildren for a brief history of this day and a guide to #reflection and connection! (RWC link in bio.)
Have you ever recreated an old family photo? Or visited an ancestors home? What was your experience? Comment below. Here is @tendermemories experience in this photo “My great grandfather with his sister and father. They are standing in front of the house they lived in. We found the house! My second great grandmother had a grandfather who lived around the corner. Since 2011 I have been in the possession of his diary and have been transcribing it. It has been one of the highlights of my life. Being an avid journaler myself, reading his words makes him real to me. I have been dreaming of visiting his home for years and I finally did.” #findingrootshealingbranches #familyhistory #familyconnection #familystories #oldfamilyphotos #familyjournals #familyhistorytravel #familyhistoryheals
Have you ever participated in burying a time capsule- what did you include? If not, what would you include? Have you opened a time capsule- what did you find? Comment below. Here are the words about this time capsule @crissyherron - “My parents are from North Branch, a small town in Michigan. My mom moved there when she was a teenager, but my dad’s side has been there for generations. I actually have a family history book that tells the history of each generation, since my great grandfather (several times over) left Germany and settled in North Branch. I went to North Branch the other day to visit my Grandma (my mom’s mom) for Mother’s Day. While I was there, I went to the cemetery to visit my dad’s parents. (My great grandparents and great-great grandparents are also buried there) I don’t know if there are many places like that left. A small farming town, where generations and generations stay in that small town. This time capsule is buried in the town’s park, which is across the street from where my grandparents on my dad’s side lived. When we were little, my sister, my cousin, and I thought it was so cool and would talk about what could be in there. Hopefully, I am still around in 2055 and, if so, I want to be there when they open this time capsule!” #findingrootshealingbranches #familystories #familyconnection #familyhistoryheals #familyhistory #timecapsule
How amazing is this family history themed art work? Do you have any art that strengthens your family connection? Have you made art like this? Tell us about it in the comments below. Here are the artists words about her painting: @franzoni.thorley.studio - “Until you’re in my arms again” 21 x 30 Oil on panel. This painting is 100% bigger than anything I have ever done. I can’t even tell you how much my brain hurt most nights but also how much my brain has grown. There is so much I still don’t know. There is still so much I still can’t do, but here is what I can do. I can create a visual of one of the reasons why I love doing family history. “Remember me Though I have to say goodbye Remember me Don't let it make you cry For even if I'm far away I hold you in my heart I sing a secret song to you Each night we are apart Remember me Though I have to travel far Remember me Each time you hear a sad guitar Know that I’m with you The only way that I can be Until you’re in my arms again Remember me” #findingrootshealingbranches #familyhistory #familyconnection #familystories #familyart #familyhistoryheals
Isn’t having old family photos colorized such a great idea? Do you have any old family photos you would love to have colorized? Which ones and why? Tell us about it in the comments below. Here is what @myretrophoto says about their photo: “Colorized war time photo of the Major of the quartermaster services Gavriushin Semion (sitting far right), the second husband of my great-grandmother Zinaida. Semion was born in 1902 in Bryansk oblast, awarded the Order of the Patriotic War, the Order of the Red Star, medal "For Battle Merit", medal "For the Capture of Konigsberg" and medal "For the Victory over Germany in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945". #findingrootshealingbranches #familystories #familyconnection #familyhistory #oldfamilyphotos #familyhistoryheals

Each of us has a story in our DNA-a continuous thread- that tells who we are, where we are from, what we have experienced, how it has shaped us. We are made up of parts and pieces of all who have gone before us. We look all around us for clues to these stories- in the foods we eat, the traditions we have, the beliefs we espouse, the records we keep, the stories we tell... As we learn these stories, the stories of our fore parents, parts of us are awakened. Suddenly we have meaning and understanding about beliefs, traditions, cultural practices, historical context, proclivities, experiences, preferences, habits, dispositions, artifacts, and places. With this understanding comes power to act instead of just to be acted upon. We awaken to the realization that we can rewrite our stories and beliefs- we can find the good in our family tree and celebrate it and release the bad. We can break negative chains and strengthen positive ones- and in doing so we are healed. When we find and come to know the roots of our family trees we will heal ourselves (the branches). How is family history healing you? #findingrootshealingbranches #familystories #familyconnection #familyhistoryheals

Dear God, thank you because your word says children are our heritage. The very first commandment you gave man was, be fruitful and multiply. It is your will for us to have children.

PIECES OF ME DAY 6. . A song that brings tears to my eyes. . Matt Stewart-Evans Waltz for Dreamers. . I'm not sure why but this song and many other piano songs similar to it remind me of my beautiful Grosi (grandmother) and without fail makes my heart ache for her. I hardly knew her but I miss her terribly everyday. I long for the relationship we never had because we were physically so far away from each other. I have always felt such a strong connection to her despite the distance and I often think how much stronger that bond would have been if we actually got to spend more time together before she passed away. Her name was Aline and I honoured her amazing spirit by gifting my daughter the name. She was an incredibly strong woman and I am so proud to be able to call her Grosi and it comforts me that she is with me, guiding me on my path through this lifetime. Meanwhile I'm currently crying my eyes out right now and struggling to write this... . . . . . @theeventhead #piecesofme #chakrabalance #healing #energetichealing #spiritualhealing #intuitivehealing #witch #spiritualgrowth #divinefeminine #femininepower #sacredfeminine #goddess #awakening #modernmystic #mystic #magic #mothersday #family #love #loss #imissyou #daughter #grandmother #familyconnection #frankston #morningtonpeninsula #mornpen #intuitive

💕This quote hits me💕 . There is an old saying “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” 👩🏻🎤 I’m calling bluff. Words do hurt. We just can not see the hurt. Words can slice, ding, and stay much longer than our scabs. 👩🏻🎤 I am totally guilty of saying and doing things that I later wish I could take back. And that’s the tricky thing about words. You can’t. 👩🏻🎤 Recently I’ve been asked a lot about technology and teaching children the affects of their online choices. IMO this starts not just on the device- this starts but creating awareness that all their actions can cause ripples- not just the ones that can be looked up and proved. 👩🏻🎤 Near the end of my career as a teacher I was frustrated. I was annoyed. I was tired of being mistreated and there was a day that I lost my cool and during circle time I screamed- not at anyone just like gave out a huge annoyed sigh. And there was a child named Oscar sitting right in front of my and he raised his eyebrows and said to me “that was so not helpful.” And he was right. And I told him that. 👩🏻🎤 Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.
“Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:1-3 NLT #realissuesconference #brotherlylove #focusOnJesus #thinkAboutchrist #lovingGod #familyconnection #familyofChrist #christcentred #biblestandard

I always said I wanted people to know, who I really am. An what I lived everyday, an that just because peoples families look good from an outside perspective. That doesn't mean they know what happens behind closed doors. So this is my life this is my family an though I love them all dearly, I cant have any part of my story go untold. All of this everything I say over this mic is real its what I had to endure an this is what makes me who I am today. #fighttheaddiction #drugskill #weallhaveourvices #familyconnection #cjberetta #storytelling #instagramsensation #independentartist #darkdiamondrecords #darkdiamondgang #graphicdesign #viral #linkinbio #soundcloud #soundcloudrapper #italianpride #littyonadifferentlevel 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥💨💨
⛈Are you a weather maker?☀️ . I taught early childhood education for 14 years before leaving the classroom. When I left it was not because of the children, parents or the job on paper. It was because of the work climate. The toxic environment that was fueled by judging, blame and shame. I once was part of that dynamic. But learned better more effective tools. . In 2002, I used time-out. In 2006, I used a behavior chart. In 2010, I started to feel burned out and angry at my job. Nothing was working. I was angry. My co-workers were angry. The children were angry. In 2011, I went to a conference and learned that I am the weather maker. In 2016, I left classroom work all together to start building my own business helping defeated, angry, misbehaving families learn how to shift to more kind and firm methods. . The conference in 2011 is when everything clicked into place for me. I am only in control of myself- and I released trying to control the children. And it has made my life so much more free! . I have been babysitting children since 1993, no joke. And still babysit even today. I have worked in HUNDREDS of homes and with over 500 families. This experience brings me so much insight on empowering children and teaching parents how to do the same. . I have learned how to be a weather maker. And hope to inspire more people to do the same! . So, again I ask- are you a weather maker?

🐝So much power!🐝 . Haim G. Ginott (5 August 1922 – 4 November 1973) was a school teacher,a child psychologist and psychotherapist and a parent educator. He pioneered techniques for conversing with children that are still taught today. His book, Between Parent and Child,stayed on the best seller list for over a year and is still popular today. This book sets out to give "specific advice derived from basic communication principles that will guide parents in living with children in mutual respect and dignity." 😍 Guide parents in living with children in mutual respect and dignity. 😍 Modern parenting can be classified with many labels. Helicopter, Free-Range, Attachment, Normal, Permissive, Authoritarian, Lazy, Strict, etc....so many labels- but what we can all agree on is that these tiny people grow up to be us, the adults! 😍 I love working with parents to learn how to stay respectful by clearly identifying and keeping a very firm boundary. Helping children learn how to become aware to the choices that are being made and what their role in life is. 😍 This quote really changed the way I look at every relationship. It is a two way street. And just as the children are making choices- I too, am making choices. Not always easy- but truly powerful. 😍 How are you raising the future adults?

I love seeing parents being present with their children because I know it’s not easy. You have to be intentional about it. I get a little emotional in today’s vlog after witnessing some family connection on the beach. I hope you’ll check it out. P.S. Thank you to my amazing husband, @patricktexas for being there for me as I experience the wide ranging emotions that I do. He very rarely shies away, and that is such a gift to me. #besthusbandever (Link in profile) . . . . . . . . #familyvlog #vloggers #youtubers #wildandfree #exploremaui #mauihawaii #kula #pickyourown #berrypicking #familyconnection #vulnerability #liveinthemoment #liveinthenow #kidvlogger #loveeachother #chooselove #familyhug #familybond #marriageisbeautiful #parentingwithpurpose #unpluggedchildhood #wildandfreekids #freerangekids #unschooling #wildschooling #rewilding #unschoolingfamily #lifelearning #lifelessons
