Today I've been helping my daughter compile our family history for a school project. Finding a great, great, great, great... grandmother with my same birthday except for the year 1707, it really made me ponder what her life was like. I asked myself the question: what traits were passed down from her that have been carried on? I began to wonder about the lives of my ancestors I was seeing on paper and their images peering at me from old books and newspaper articles. I thought about their stories and how I became the person I've become. On that note, I welcome you to the Inspire blog.
