When I was diagnosed with cervical cancer several years ago, I questioned what I would want to hand down to my four young children if that disease were to take my life.
Fortunately, I returned to full health and with a deeper appreciation for the importance of leaving a legacy while I’m alive and able. I developed my legacy keepsake product line because of that experience.
Moms must take the time to capture the memories and moments of motherhood through the years.
How to Create Meaningful Mementos to Hand Down to Our Kids
Let’s take a deeper look at these three meaningful mementos that we can hand down to our kids.
The 100 Questions for Mom journal helps moms of all ages and stages intentionally record the many moments of their lives and legacies. After all, our wisdom can only be treasured by future generations if we take the time to share our stories.
The 100 Questions for Mom journal helps moms of all ages and stages intentionally record the

generations if we take the time to share our stories.
This guided journal, created for mothers and grandmothers, is full of thoughtful prompts that
encourage you to record your stories. Insightful questions are on every page, from childhood
memories to reflections on your hopes for the future.
We love to post our precious digital photos on social media sites’ walls, but what if we compiled
printed pictures of memories with Mom into an archival keepsake book instead.
Mother’s Day gives us a perfect excuse to gather our printed photos and preserve them in this little album letting Mom know how much she is loved. Compile pictures of mom and her loved ones in a You Are Loved keepsake book along with some handwritten notes, and you’ll have the perfect Mother’s Day gift that will live on well beyond this May.
Or give it to mom blank, and each year she can add a photo of her with her children to the album creating a Mother’s Day treasure. Buy my You Are Loved album in black or red HERE.
Grandma and Mom handed me down some of my clothes, blankets, and dolls from my childhood. Unfortunately, they mean little to me because I don’t know anything about the material items I have in my possession.
Where did I wear this matching dress and booties?
Who crocheted this baby blanket for me? Did I actually play with this doll?
Without the stories attached to these items I keep in a box in my closet, they mean very little. I realized that I wanted to bring more meaning to the collection of childhood items I’ve been saving to hand down to my sons and daughter.
I created The Cherished Childhood Keepsake Kit to help moms quickly turn childhood’s bin of stuff into a treasure box of meaningful mementos instead of just meaningless stuff that we felt was important to save.
This Mother’s Day and beyond, consider purchasing a gift for Mom that will help her showcase the stories and memories that have made up her life.
