What Does Sunday Dinner Mean to You?

When I think of Sunday dinner, I think of my own childhood—our family time around the fireplace, Monopoly on the coffee table, the New England Patriots on the television, and a roast in the oven.

It was a time when we lived our traditions, enjoyed Mom's comfort food, and shared family stories. Regardless of what happened with cliques at school, teams on the field, or the neighborhood kids that week, I knew I belonged to a special group, my family, no matter what.

A Better Mom?

In today's technology-dependent and activity-overwhelmed culture, that peaceful, connected version of Sunday dinner competes with handheld electronic devices, instant messaging phones, cyber-friendships, homework, and a host of extracurricular activities.

As a mom, I wondered how my husband and I could give our children the comfort, security, and sense of belonging that a strong family offers when everyone was so distracted. I knew that family time, especially dinners together, was important. But it seemed like we needed more than just fellowship over food.

Connecting in unique and lasting ways

We are fortunate that both of our children enjoy reading books, but they also learn from online sources that were not even available when I was a teen. I wanted to connect with our children in a unique and lasting way, and I wanted our children to connect with their grandparents and great-grandparents.

On the other end of the spectrum, I realized that my grandaunts were aging; my grandparents had long passed. As each elder tragically slipped into dementia or another form of memory loss, we lost our connection to them and our family's history.

The Birth of Sunday Dinner Stories

Once I became a mom, I realized how critical family history was to my children's well-being. That's why I founded Sunday Dinner Stories, a life story heirlooms company whose mission is:

To help your loved ones preserve their life story heirlooms so all generations of their families know they belong, have been heard, and will be remembered.

We transform short stories, beliefs, values, and life lessons into books and audio playlists that capture the attention of technology-dependent, information-overloaded family audiences.

We also help you and your loved ones curate, preserve, share, and store their photo collections.
