A person's heritage speaks not only to where they originate but also to who they will become. It is important to know where you come from. In knowing where you come from, you understand why things happen the way they happen in your life. Proverbially, the dots are connected and you get answers to questions you never even knew you had.
What I love the most about learning about my heritage is the commonalities in my kin. I recently attended a family reunion and learned so much about my lineage. For instance, I learned that two sisters produced a lineage of 97 ministers; 97 people preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I also learned how many infant deaths (mostly male) and the causes. I learned why some of the siblings from my original clan didn't have many children. For instance, one died young (age 32) from asthma. Another died from asthma when he was only 16.
Learning commonalities like that help to bridge the gap from the past to the present and unlocks the future. Family members have gotten jobs simply because of their heritage! I want to encourage you to know your family - past, present, and future. You never know what doors it will unlock. #LoveandLight
