Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple. The more you take time to notice, joyfully react, remember, and reminisce about your precious child’s adorable moments…the happier you, those around you, and your child will be.

After children take their first steps, especially  between the ages of two  and five, they begin to communicate more verbally as they express their views of the world around them. During this time, they say and do the cutest things.

…the kinds of adorable moments you wish you could remember and retell tomorrow and forever.

About Us

Keri Gee Semmelman, My Memory Catcher™
Passionate Owner

 I grew up in a storytelling family. Hearing my parents retell stories over the years has brought so much laughter and happiness to my entire family. This experience, coupled with my professional background and love of children inspired me to innovate the Parent Historian™ concept as a way to help busy parents, grandparents, and other relatives capture in writing the adorable moments of their children's lives.

Storytelling brings  the teller and the listener a wealth of joy.  That’s why I have always delighted in asking  friends and colleagues the question, "What's the cutest thing your child (grandchild, niece, nephew) has done lately?" The stories each time are beautifully different, yet the result of sharing the answer is always the same – the friend or colleague is so happy to relive the moment and  says..."I wish I would take the time to write all of these down so that I could remember them forever!"

After hearing so many people say this, I knew the time had come to create My Memory Catcher™. This exciting venture is my  solution for generating good news within people's homes to counteract all the bad news that seems to capture the headlines and often brings down the human spirit.

I have combined two of my passions, journalism and celebrating children, to bring you My Memory Catcher™. As an award-winning public relations go-getter, sought after dynamic speaker, passionate educator and youth leader for the past three decades, I know first-hand how to capture special stories that make your heart smile!

With the help of my team of Parent Historians™,  you’ll see first-hand the positive power of memories and  will be even more in the habit of looking for and recognizing the “good”  your children are doing. The collection of happy memories will help unite families and create a less stressful and more fun environment for parents and children alike, with lots more giggles to go around. And parents and their familieswill have a library of memories to refer to for a lifetime and a legacy to give to future generations.

In case you are wondering, that’s me in the photo  cheering, and I haven’t stopped since.

I proudly dedicate My Memory Catcher™ in honor of my master storytelling father, in memory of my precious mother, and in appreciation of my four siblings.
