Family Reunion Quotes To Live By - Part 1

Wondering how to empower the family? Here are some tried, tested and true words to live by.


My granddaughter licked her candy apple until it was oozing with spittle. She then pushed the dripping wet treat to my mouth. About to say "no thank you sweety" I suddenly realized that I would miss out on an ideal opportunity to show deep gratitude and appreciation for her creative expression of affection through giving. I immediately thanked her and took a lick and a bite of the apple. Then I hugged her and kissed her on the cheek. Needless to say, she shared her sticky treat right down to the last bite. Lesson learned!

Did you know that creative expressions of innocent filial affection teach your child the value
of kindness, giving and gratitude? We teach our children how to be considerate and thoughtful by example. In turn, they develop a sense of responsibility based on appreciation and gratitude for what you give them including all your hard work. They grow up to be more supportive and are often there when you need them.
Spread the word. Have a family reunion. Teach the younger generation how to creatively express gratitude and appreciation and show others how to graciously accept.  It will go a long way toward building up the household and empowering the family.

Learn the simple steps of planning your reunion.

Planning Your First Family Reunion

Learning about your families history can be both entertaining and intriguing especially when researching with an open mind. Many authors and playwrights base the character development of best selling stories on family members. Often one's best friend proves to be an aunt, cousin or relative twice removed, discovered only after connecting the branches of the proverbial family tree.

What better way to introduce new links to the branch, along with new insights than at the next upcoming family reunion. What? No family reunion has been planned? Why not start planning right now. All that is needed is the right tools and a little motivation.

Plan a meaningful, memorable, inspiring and fun event. How can you accomplish this with minimal difficulty? Family reunion planning web apps are designed to guide you through the maze of event planning with ease.

Yes, there are only a few family reunion apps on the market, but it's amazing what such an app can accomplish. With the right reunion planning app you'll get your event planned in no time. Imagine having it all planned in a matter of days, organized in a few weeks, funded in a month or two and managed from the welcoming meet and greet right down to the fond farewell.

Fimark's family reunion planning book and spreadsheet will help you plan the entire occasion in no time at all.

How To Start Planning A Family Reunion

One of the most challenging feats of planning a family reunion is getting it all organized. It's one thing to say what you want to do. It's quite another to make that reality. But following this these simple steps can make all the difference.

1. Form a family reunion committee.
2. Include family members who are great motivators, leaders and hard workers.
3. Next brain storm your family reunion theme, slogan and associated activities.
4. Next delegate members of the committee to man departments typical of a big event. This may include your welcome department, food and drink department, entertainment department, genealogy research, and presentation, etc...
5. Meet periodically to update the group on the progress being made.

How do you rally the family and get everyone excited and involved?

How do you make cost saving decisions?

How do you raise funds for the event?
