The journey of building a family legacy
I’m convinced God’s design for families includes thriving individuals united around a shared identity across multiple generations. That’s family legacy.
Here’s how families build a multigenerational legacy:
- Understand God’s purpose for family
- Define a family identity through shared vision, mission and values
- Shape a family culture of celebration and generosity
Let's talk about these phases.
Understanding the purpose of family
Throughout the big story of the Bible, we see that God intends for families to have a lasting influence for generations.
God ordained families as the first organized social unit. His purpose is for the members of the family to support each other, to teach the next generations God’s deeds and commands, and to impact their world.
Embracing this purpose leads families to pursue their unique calling, their family identity.
When a family is clear on their shared purpose, they live it out through intentional practices that shape their family culture.
Often, as a family digs into issues around legacy, they find it helpful to invite an experienced advisor to guide them through key conversations and equip them for success. Learn more about my legacy consulting approach.
