Welcome to Week #5 of our 8-week series on Grace in Awareness
With tomorrow being Thanksgiving, we’re keeping this issue light while still offering a few fun family-friendly resources for the holiday weekend.
What are your plans? Are you cooking? Are you traveling? Are you keeping it low-key? Will you be among the brave souls out shopping on Friday? Whatever your plans may be, we hope you have much to be thankful for this season!
I, for one, will not be out shopping on Friday, however, I will be doing some online shopping this weekend…
Since this is typically the last weekend to get deeply discounted deals on holiday cards, getting those ordered is at the top of my list!
I’m also planning to purchase a gift for my parents that Amanda recommended to me. It’s called StoryWorth and like everything else, it’s on sale this week. Here’s how it works: A daily question is sent via email to the gift recipient. They answer it and submit each response and at the end of the year a book is created telling their story!
Speaking of telling your family story… be sure to check out the podcast episode in this week’s Grace in the Race Podcast Playlist entitled How to Document Family Stories (linked below).
The quiz for this week is one you can do with the entire family over Thanksgiving dinner.
It’s titled “40 Thought-Provoking Questions to Get to Know Your Family” and it’s made up of 40 questions across these five categories:
- Funny Questions to Ask Family Members
- ‘How Well Do You Know Me?’ Family Questions
- Questions to Ask About Family History and Stories
- Great Questions to Ask Around the Family Dinner Table
- Other Great Questions to Ask Your Family

Interesting, go on…
In searching for an “insightful” video for this week, I came across one that is more entertaining than insightful (I couldn’t resist). It’s called A Very Jumanji Thanksgiving. If you haven’t seen the recent Jumanji movies and you’re laying low this weekend, it’s one of our family favorites and we highly recommend them! (Double check that it’s age appropriate for your crew.)
