Memoir Writing Prompt: Memories of High School

What do you remember of your senior year in high school? The better question is “who” do you remember from your senior year in high school? Last May, I attended my 50th high school reunion in Wellsboro, PA (putting 50th in writing looks like such a high number). I truly enjoyed the entire weekend of […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Birthdays—Simple or Elaborate?

Birthdays were big when I was growing up. No, we didn’t have parties with ponies or clowns or lots of friends—it was just Mom, Daddy, and the four kids. What we did have was a birthday cake specially made and decorated by Mom. Mom was always baking cakes and other desserts, but our birthday cakes […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: How did you view church in your younger day?

Our preacher at Hillside Fellowship in Spring Branch, Texas, is always saying how religion ruins God’s message. Religion tends to be laws or mandates that people have pulled out of scripture. And “religion” has pulled God’s people apart. It’s divisive instead of inclusive. Do you dunk or do you sprinkle for baptism? Is communion once […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What special annual springtime event do you remember from your childhood?

It’s mid-March, which means in upper Pennsylvania, the Maple sap running is just about over. My father collected sap in the early hours of the late February/early March mornings before he went to work. Sometimes I woke early enough to go with him at 4:00 a.m. when he replaced the pails of frozen sap on […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Memories of St. Patrick’s Day

Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. In my grade school days at Charleston Elementary outside of Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, we celebrated every holiday with flair. St. Patrick’s Day held a myriad of options. The teachers could always introduce one more story of a magical leprechaun or a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: This Day is for YOU!

I recently discovered the listing of all the national holidays. And today is meant just for you. Today is “National Write Your Story Day.” I love encouraging people to write down their stories for their children and those who come after. My father’s family has always been such a mystery for me. I know they […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What did You Learn from Your Grandparent?

I had planned to write on a different prompt today until I saw this picture my cousin posted on Facebook of him and his grandson. I have to sadly admit to the fact that I still have no grandchildren (another topic); however, I had grandparents and this picture captures the epitome of what I think […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Remembering the Healthy Diet of Old

When I was a student in Home Economics class in the 60s, I learned the pyramid of healthy eating. Growing up on a farm, I knew we had a somewhat balanced diet. We consumed lots of homemade bread, ate fruit from the orchard and vegetables fresh from the garden. We ate beef, ham/pork and chicken […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Which Teachers made an Impact on You?

I saw school as fun and exciting and couldn’t wait to get there every morning. Many special teachers crossed my path from elementary through high school. Mrs. Baynes, my seventh and eighth grade Latin and Ancient History teacher, intertwined the two subjects and made that entire historical time frame come alive—Julius Caesar, the Apian Way, […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: When did your educational light bulb go off?

It happened in first grade for me. For some reason, I have never forgotten the exact happening and the person responsible. At Mrs. Olsen’s directions, my classmates dutifully took one paper and handed the rest to the child who sat behind them. At least, that’s what they were supposed to do. The girl who sat […]
