My Grandmother's Life - Second Edition: Grandma, I Want to Know Everything About You: Volume 42Editors of Chartwell Books
Record your grandmother's life story in this beautiful keepsake journal with 200 guided exercises and prompts that take her back through each stage of her life and its accompanying adventures. Whether called Nana, Grammie, or Grandma, grandmothers are a family's most-prized treasure and whose matriarchal wisdom, love, and support are needed and appreciated by every member. With a compassionate ear always at the ready, grandmothers have lived full lives and are a testament that even though times may change, most of life's truths are timeless and their experiences have gifted them with profound insight to share.
In this second edition of My Grandmother's Life featuring a new cover design, both thought-provoking and lighthearted writing prompts and guided exercises are organized into chapters based on your grandmother's life stages to help her record her life's memoir. Beginning with early childhood, questions like What is a moment that stands out the most about your school days? followed by early adulthood prompts such as Describe a time when you realized that you learned a lot from your parents? and then moving to the wisdom she has learned and would like to share such as What is the one word or phrase that encapsulates your life and why?, the My Grandmother's Life journal jump starts the reflective writing process to open your grandmother's mind to dig deeper into who she is, where she started, and, most importantly, what she has learned.
Complemented with poignant quotes about grandmothers throughout history, this beautifully designed journal will give your grandmother everything she needs to record her life's experiences to not only shed light on the events that shaped her into the woman she is today, but also to preserve her life's memories and stories for you and your family to learn from, become inspired by, and cherish for future generations. With so much of our lives and contact going digital, the Creative Keepsakes journals offer an intimate way to nurture your connection with yourself and the people around you. An entertaining way to get off your screen, these guided and free-form journals are great for writers and artists alike.
Each journal offers content around a different theme, including silly prompts for a laugh, random yet thoughtful questions, inspiration for art and composition, interactive prompts to learn about your heritage, and blank interiors on high-quality paper stock to use as your creative canvas. Beautifully designed and full of mindful prompts, channel your inspiration as you put pen (or pencil, or marker, or crayon!) to paper to learn more about yourself, your talents, and the people you love.
