Making the most of the everyday!

Building stronger families by making memories count from day to day to traditions!

The reality is, today’s moments are literally tomorrow’s memories. Let's maximize those everyday moments with intentional decisions to build stronger relationships!

This 30-page resource explores finding your "minutes" of opportunity to help build more memories and ultimately traditions. It includes ample room for your ideas, brainstorming thoughts and overall plan.

MINUTES & TRADITIONS for making memories

Memory makers

Includes lots of ideas, brainstorming space, and info on how to narrow down your choices. In addition, we also look at what to do when the family isn't as receptive to our new plans we we would hope. Finally, we've also included links to some of our most favorite resources we use to create memories.

also included:

As we brainstorm together we'll discover previously lost minutes. Once identified, those precious minutes can then be intentionally used to create lasting memories. The process of creating lasting memories is quite similar to creating traditions, so the second half of this document considers how to establish new traditions.


Doing the same or similar thing with the same people repeated over and over turns into a tradition. Do you have "taco Tuesdays" or "Friday Pizza Nights"? Maybe you always get the mail at the same time of day? That's a tradition too! 

You may not think of these as traditions but they are. To start, we're giving you a laundry list of different tradition ideas by month because it's the one thing that would have helped Kelli years ago!

Opportunities: Traditions

Our workbook follows this formula for each section. 
The EXPLANATION is enough to be thorough without being overbearing. Then it's filled with IDEAS to get your creative juices revving. After considering the ideas it's time to brainstorm. We provide a complete EXAMPLE and plenty BRAINSTORM space. And finally you review your brainstorm and develop your own individualized PLAN

Explain, ideas, EXAMPLE, Brainstorm, Plan

The first section of this workbook focuses on finding the lost minutes of our daily life. These are minutes we spend doing other productive and/or necessary things that could, with a bit of intention, also be used to create lasting memories.

Opportunities: Minutes
