Memory Book

20151122blog120151122blog2

After serving as full-time missionaries for 18 years, John and I decided to take a step of faith in a new direction. One of the great things we got to do was build relationships with people in the church who supported us financially and through prayer. Almost every month for 18 years we sent a newsletter giving updates and sharing stories and prayer requests.

As we decided to leave full-time ministry, I wanted to have a memory and record of our time of service. I turned all of our newsletters in to a Blurb book. It’s a great way to remember and honor all that God did.

I have made a number of other books through Blurb. I love how easy it is!

4 years, 4 books

I am really proud of the fact that I have been doing a photo-a-day for 4, going on 5 years. I love the blog interactions and sharing my life with friends. The next step beyond the blog is being able to save the posts and photos and comments into a more permanent form–books. Blurb.com is my preferred bookmaker. (This is an affiliate link. I get a small commission if you buy through this link.) They have great features including being able to slurp my blog posts, photos and comments and put them into a book automatically. (If you comment on the blog, you are recorded for posterity too!) Then, I just customize pages, make minor tweaks and am done. I love paging through the memories and having 4 full years of my life to continue to share!

2009 compiled

I made a book of all the photographs from the blog for 2009. I am thrilled to have all the pictures, text and your comments all compiled into one place. I am also working on one for 2008.

The fun thing for me about these pictures is I took them using my new Pocket Wizards which allows for my flash to fire remotely. Awesomeness is to be expected as I figure out how to best use them in the next few weeks, after vacation!

I use blurb.com to create my books. Here’s a coupon for you to make your own book!
