The name Bene-log means “The Good Word.” “What’s the good word?” was an expression of my ancestors. The response to this greeting included gossip, obituaries, crop ideas, new births, and declarations of the blessings of the Almighty. The “good word” was communal and free flowing among family members, neighbors, and the occasional stranger journeying through their small town. This is the source that motivates my writing – capturing the oral tradition of storytelling and sharing the bene-log, the Good Word.
