Most recently, Matt along with wife, Betsy, have focused on writing family history books for clients. Together, they also wrote a guided journal series, Tell Me More About You….. The journals provide a daily fill-in-the blank prompt (365 total) which ranges from more serious questions about family members, education, profession, values and faith, to lighter questions about favorite music and tastes in food. The Tell Me More… books are available through Amazon or on the “shop” page.
