Fifteen years ago at our wedding, Aunt Mary gave Chad and I the most interesting and priceless wedding gift. The gift was a book containing the genealogy of Chad’s family dating back to the early 18th century.

In this episode, I invited our family historian Aunt Mary Douglass to share colorful stories from our past and her journey into genealogy.

Mary is a published author and micro-historian who has worked tirelessly to preserve the Clement family story.

The last page of “The Clement Chronicles” is blank except for the message at the very top, “Chad Cameron Clement- This story is for him to write.” What story will our lives tell to those in generations to come? This is a question we should all ask, and seek to answer with guidance from the Lord.

“15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

Ephesians 5:15-17
