I Will to You: Leaving a Legacy for Those You Love
Fortress Press, 18 sept. 2006 - 144 pages
Almost everyone has a Last Will and Testament that tells their family and friends what is to become of their property, but few people have thought about the spiritual gifts and memories they'd like to leave their loved ones. Well-known and beloved author Herbert Brokering here shares the spiritual gifts and intimate memories that he'd like to leave to his family and his readers. As he ponders the grace he has received from the people, places, and events of his life he inspires our own reflection on what we wish to leave to our loved ones. Each chapter includes a Bible passage and key questions for reflection.
