Michelle Booth from Make Momentos is joining us to discuss how Make Momentos enables interesting and unique connections with the young children in your life. Make Momentos is a unique product and experience where you can create a short video introduction followed by reading an enjoyable book for your grandchild, child, niece, or nephew.
This conversation explores what motivated Michelle to start this unique company. You will learn about Michelle’s background as an editor, ghostwriter, and publisher focused on helping people tell their stories. You will feel Michelle’s passion for helping people connect with family members through stories and the sharing of other enjoyable children’s books.
We both agree that having that recorded voice of a grandmother or grandfather is special and creates a special bond that can be shared with other family members. You will love listening to this conversation, and hopefully, it prompts you to record your stories so that the little ones in the family have your stories from your mouth.

Sharing is the best way to help me spread the word about the importance of grandfathers in the lives of their grandchildren and families.
Our conversation is with Anieke Lamers. Anieke is an Ex-VC (Venture Capitalist) turned social entrepreneur on a mission to make every child feel special and connected to roots & loved ones.
In this conversation with Anneke, the co-founder of Peekabond, we discuss challenges that Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and anyone who is away from a young child in their family deal with every day. We talk about how Peekabond solves the problem of having little to no connections with the younger family members. Through hosting videos, creating fun activities for the children, and ensuring that the relationships between people in their Family Circle are safely secure.
You will enjoy listening to Anieke’s story about wanting to connect and be involved with her niece, who lives in Australia. Anieke talks about how Peekabond has formed a team of youth development experts combined with top-notch IT experts on building an easy-to-use multi-generational connectivity tool.

This week, we catch up one-on-one to discuss how we can build up love and affection with grandchildren who live away from us. The basis for this conversation comes from a guest blog that I wrote for Peekabond. Peekabond is a new company building an application to assist people with building and maintaining long-distance relationships with young ones.
In this conversation, I discuss the need to have a plan for communicating and sharing communications with grandchildren. We then discuss four ways to build up and strengthen those long-distance relationships. The four areas are:
Send fun pictures and videos
Video chats when you can (Peekabond can help with this item!)
We live in an age where we can take full advantage of voice and video to communicate to those young ones that we hold dear to us. By taking a few intentional steps and making plans with their parents about how and when to share with children, we can build up relationships where those children can TRULY KNOW US compared to us being remote but loving strangers.
