In every home, frame a family tree to help strengthen your posterity.

Welcome !

I am committed to acknowledging connections throughout the generations--past, present, and future--and igniting a sense of extraordinary family purpose in individuals in THIS generation. Let me help you discover your "roots" as well as strengthen the "branches" of your family tree. If you have had painful experiences in your family line, then this is the blog for you!

TmT Think About It Thursday Reminder: SERVICE





Great blessings can come out of any difficulty when wisdom is used for personal growth.



Wisdom is the third step in JOURNALriffic’s 4 Steps of Discovery.

A principle is a natural law. 

There are laws that govern the physical world, like gravity,
and laws that govern happiness in human interactions, like love, respect, and honesty. 

 
This month, we have been exploring the principle of SERVICE.
INspired thought: “As you consciously reflect upon your life’s experiences, free from criticism and condemnation of self or others, you can begin to glean wisdom from the past without staying stuck in it.  You may realize that a certain choice led you in a direction that hurt you or someone else.  You apply wisdom when you decide that you will not repeat those words or that action again.”—Carolyn Calton, JOURNALriffic

Thursday JOURNALriffic Prompt

Remember that life is happening for you, not to you.  It’s the lessons we learn from adversity that help us grow and remember who we really are.  With that perspective, ponder upon the principle you’ve chosen for this month, and seek wisdom.
·        Think of an experience in your life in which this month's principle or its absence played a role.  Ask yourself, “Did I identify the opportunity for growth in this experience and use my conscience-guided wisdom to grow personally?”
·        As part of your personal history, write down the wisdom you gleaned and the insight you gain as additional understanding comes forth.  Use your own words just the way they come to your mind.
·        Reflect upon the principle, notice your sincere desires to progress and then set your intention to receive other ideas, insight and strength that will help you to continue to grow.  Remain open-hearted and open-minded to receiving further enlightenment as it comes.

By INtegrating this month’s principle into your daily experiences,
you refine your emotional state of heart to
improve your sense of well-being and
enrich your meaningful relationships.

Turn your pain into purpose.
Live in alignment with principles that govern happiness.
Follow your desires to help, not hurt, yourself and others.
Elevate your thought patterns, habit patterns and family patterns.
