These early years are going by fast, aren’t they, Mama?
We know we are supposed to “enjoy every moment” and sear these days into our memories, but between late night feedings and mid-afternoon temper-tantrums, it’s easy to feel like we’re just letting the time slip by without making the most of it. It’s hard to be intentional when we feel filled to the brim with our daily responsibilities. But what if one day we wake up and realize that our children have grown, and we’ve put very little effort into feeding their souls and building family bonds?
Since our first child was born, we’ve been searching for ways to establish traditions in our home. Family traditions don’t have to just be the big, elaborate celebrations that surround holidays. Everyday traditions bond our families together and store our children’s memories with happy moments.
Storytelling is a beautiful way to strengthen family relationships, and it boasts many benefits for young children. After reading Charlotte Mason’s recommendation to rely on story telling more than picture books during our children’s early years, I struggled with getting started with this timeless tradition. After a year of research and trial-and-error, I created Treasured Traditions: Storytelling to help you implement this beautiful tradition in your home.

This guide is fantastic. I grew up with a mother who told stories often and I made a book of them so I would be able to pass them along to my children. I’ve added a few of my own as well. Your guide motivates me to be more intentional with the range of stories I have in my repertoire and gives practical ways to make them part of our home, especially for my little guy who always wants to hear stories! The hands on ideas are wonderful and we will definitely be implementing the story log tradition on our next camping trip. What a lasting gift you are giving families!” Melissa Runcie
I love this packet!!! Can’t wait to do the handicrafts with my kids. As a Mom of 6, I keep thinking of so many other areas of our life that needs a Talking Stick! The family story box is great!!! I think that would be a great thing to start with my kids since most don’t have a baby book and with homeschooling you don’t always have traditional items to “collect”. I think a shelf with a special box for each of my kids would be something they would enjoy. ” Kristi Yillik
I loved that your book had a great amount of practical advice on how we can weave story time into our days at home. You explained why we might want to do this but did not leave me feeling like it was out of reach. I am walking away with some new tools in my toolbelt and ways to implement great stories to my children.” Talina Strawbridge
