Celebrating the Life of My Father: What’s Your Legacy?

The word for May (albeit late) is LEGACY.  We all have a legacy.  If you’re like me, your daily life is more about what needs to get done right now and less about legacy.  But life circumstances have a way of putting things in perspective when they otherwise get out of whack.  Busy women especially need to push the pause button, forget the everyday stress and minutia, and ask — what’s my legacy?

For me, my legacy is deeply tied to my parents.  They remind me of who I am, where I came from, and what’s really important.  This week, I’m celebrating my father’s life and mourning his loss.  You can read his obituary here.  I’ve had the privilege of recording the lessons he taught me through a series of blog posts over the years.   I’m honored to share his legacy over and over again.

How are you recording (and living out) your own legacy?

I'm an author who writes about the working mom's struggle to live out an authentic Christian faith in a complex and fast-paced world. I live in constant need of grace, caffeine, and technology -- usually in that order.
