From The Author:
One of the reasons I created this book is not only to encourage writing and storytelling, but to promote my mission of encouraging personal writing as a practice for self care. That is why on the back of my book I have listed the following additional benefits:
Playing Family Scribes promotes wellness, creativity and family unity.
- Personal writing, which is the main activity of Family Scribes, is medically-proven to improve health and well-being!
- Producing and reading Family Scribes stories to fellow game players is a fun way to develop writing and presentation skills.
- Playing Family Scribes encourages family bonding and fosters multi-generational communication.
- Family Scribes activities encourage concentration and reflective thinking.
And if you need more motivation, check out what one reader says about the book:
“OMG!! If you have plans to spend time with family this summer or you are hosting family for the holidays, you need to order this book. It’s available on Amazon. I laughed all night and learned so much about the people that I thought I knew the best! For instance – my Aunt Nell loved snickers candy bars so much as a young girl that when she was asked to be the treasurer for her youngest sisters club, she gladly accepted the offer and used the club dues to buy snickers! I also learned the origin of my Uncle Wu Fang’s name, my niece Ella eats smarties candy because if you take off the “s” it spells her Daddy’s name, and my brother around the age of 10 met Rev. Abernathy in the airport and when my brother told him his name was Martin, Rev. Abernathy replied “I had a dear friend named Martin. #SoMuchFun. #SoManyGoodBellyLaughs. #PricelessMemories”
