Welcome to this first segment of what we are referring to as “Legacy Moments”. Through written articles and video streams, these times of communication and information are an effort to “meet you where you are” in your life stage and unique circumstances.

Helpful information will be provided to assist you in framing in your unique life story, for its inclusion into your estate and legacy planning, and for others to be inspired by! You will also become armed with the most up to date information you need to assure your estate plan leaves nothing to chance.

Bottom line, while we, who know Christ as Savior, have been assured that the “grave holds no victory nor death have any sting”, we nonetheless do well to prepare for the “unforeseen and unavoidable” in all of our lives.

We trust these times of reflection will be found both helpful, and instructive. As a support ministry of LeTourneau University (now celebrating our first anniversary of full autonomy and strategic self-support), we also trust the information we can share about how giving can be integrated into your planning will be found helpful. Tools and information will be made available that will illustrate and empower you to set upon giving designs from within your plan structure, that can save, if not eliminate, certain taxes while at the same achieving essential income for retirement and contingencies.

So let’s launch into these coming times together, shall we? May we be found faithful to all He has set before us to do—for His glory and the advancement of His purposes!
