Steve Rockwood, FamilySearch CEO – Feeling Purpose and Resilience

Screen Shot 2016-04-08 at 6.48.19 AMEach of you think of an ancestor or someone that means something to you. Think of a story about them. Tell it to the person next to you. What did you feel when telling a story. Children are more resilient with family connection. Helping others toward family history; start with stories. It can be simple and fun. Pull out your phone and record it. Weave into everyday life in small bites. Who needs to hear it. Who needs to feel this. Go talk to them today so they can feel the strong sense of purpose. Keep it short. Then ask them to share their story with you. (Ken Hardman notes from #rootstech keynote Steve Rockwood, Feb. 4, 2016)
