HERITAGE to LEGACY: Passing on Stories of Faith (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
How have the lives of people in your past, inspired lives of faith in your family today? Are there stories you share with family and friends, that demonstrate the loving care of God? This book is a collection of memories that my children requested to have put in writing so that they will not forget. I hope you, too, will be prompted to preserve your family's stories, for the benefit of your own children and grandchildren. Included in this book are principles for living lives of faith, and some parenting suggestions that come from multiple sources. These were also requested by my adult kids. Several are now parents themselves. They find themselves using phrases they remember from our home. Now they want some explanation of their origins and application. I have tried to honor the memory and examples of those who lived before us. This book is also meant to challenge this generation to intentionally invest in the spiritual lives of their children, in order to raise the next generation who will know and live for God. These spiritual investments will become the legacy of faith God asks us to leave. Psalm 145:4 says, "One generation will praise Your works to another, and will declare Your mighty acts." May our faith stories collectively bring much glory to God. Ruth Christenson is a pastor's wife and mother of seven children.
