Documenting Your Life Series: Question/prompt 9
August 9, 2014
We are going to write more about our parents this week and if you include dates and places in your narrative, and I hope you do, please be as specific and detailed as you can be. For example: “When we lived in Emporia, Lyon County, Kansas from 1957 until 1968, and the family attended the First United Methodist Church…”
This week is more about reflection, consideration, and perhaps speculation. Remember this is your story, from your point of view; it is not right or wrong, it is your perspective.
Write about your parent’s values, philosophies, and religious beliefs. How did those beliefs inform your childhood and your choices in adulthood? Were your parents in agreement? Did they share the same religious beliefs?
