Family Tree Gal
Carolyn Calton welcomes YOU!


In every home, frame a family tree to help strengthen your posterity.

Welcome !

I am committed to acknowledging connections throughout the generations--past, present, and future--and igniting a sense of extraordinary family purpose in individuals in THIS generation. Let me help you discover your "roots" as well as strengthen the "branches" of your family tree. If you have had painful experiences in your family line, then this is the blog for you! In fact, all of us will see that as we strengthen ourselves, we strenthen our entire FAMILY TREE through the power of our positive influence.

Great Quote by Chris Brady

“Our privileges are not for our pleasure, but for our purpose.” ~Chris Brady

I feel fortunate to have heard Chris Brady speak last night. He is the #11 Personal Development leader in the WORLD. As we strive to "live mindfully in the present" (one of the goals of Family Tree Quest), let us live "on purpose", so that those we love will have the most benefit as we share the light of our influence to change some of the generational junk still hanging around and keep the beauties and wisdom we can glean from our past.

What if you could create the LIFE you've always dreamed of?  Well, we can!  We are creators (through the thoughts we think and the decisions we make), and we aren't happy unless we're  making conscious, mindful choices and making decisions in alignment with our purpose for being here and making a contribution. 

I love to have fun and rest and relax.  Everybody needs some of that.  Yet mindfully contributing to the important relationships in life is what brings me the most JOY!

Take charge of our own life, and live it well.

New Granddaughter

Hello everyone.   

We've had a new, darling granddaughter.

Looking forward to Mother's day.  How about you?

My mother has passed on.  Miss her every Mothers day, however.  I do feel fortunate to have some really good memories and to have felt of her loving kindness all the days of my life.
