• Healing Heartache in Family Lines: Today Is A New Day!

    Have you noticed that there is always a chance for a new beginning?  Our choices can lead us in any direction we choose.  Sometimes the consequences of our choices are not clear at the time decisions are made.  Many times we learn, through sad experience, that we may not be creating the life we truly desire.  We may also feel damaged by the lingering, negative impact of the choices of others.

    Family Tree Quest refers to our quest for belonging, for meaning, for making the changes in our own lives that promote our own best good. No one decides that for us. It is up to us to discover it for ourselves.  With that in mind, we acknowledge that we intend to create positive change in THIS generation.  We glean wisdom from the past (rather than stay stuck in victim stories), live mindfully in the present, and prepare confidently for the future.  Also, with that in mind, we acknowledge that our choices in the present effect future generations of our own family tree—that group of  ancestors and descendents to whom we are related.
