Every family has a story.

We want to celebrate your family story. Family First exists to help families love well. We want to hear how your family has loved one another well, through good and bad times. The last day for entries is March 30th so be sure to enter soon. The purpose is to celebrate your family so it doesn’t have to be perfect. You can get it done with fun!

Every family who tells their story wins one copy of From Me to You!

As our gift to you, every family who submits a story will receive one free copy of Mark and Susan Merrill’s new book, From Me to You: A Conversation Journal for You and Your Child or a children’s book set of comparable value. The journal is an amazing way to encourage your child and we are giving away hundreds of them, but only one per family. As a grand prize one family story will be chosen to win a $250 gift card for you to make a new memory to write about!

Two ways to enter (must be at least 18 years of age):
