What legacy are you going to leave your children? In writing Legacies, Lawrence M. Haynes encourages his readers to write a letter to their descendants sharing what legacy they plan to bequeath. Haynes mentions love, forgiveness, and God’s unconditional love. Too often, when people hear about leaving their children or grandchildren an inheritance, they think only of money and material things. Haynes takes it deeper and shares what we all can leave behind. Dying at a young age, Brian left a remarkable legacy of courage, faith, and love to his family and friends. However, the most incredible legacy that anyone can leave their family and friends is the knowledge of the greatest gift ever - salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Adults do not like thinking about dying. So, they tend to avoid the subject like the plague, but unfortunately, we all die at some point. Avoiding discussing death does not make us immune to it. Lawrence M. Haynes faces death boldly by looking at what people can leave behind for their children and grandchildren. In Legacies, he shares a challenge his pastor gave the congregation. Haynes accepts the challenge and writes a letter sharing a legacy of faith and how faith makes us loving, caring, brave, and forgiving. Then, through concise stories, Haynes shares what are probably the most important inheritances. He ends the book by sharing the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and the fact that this leads to salvation. Take time to consider what you want to leave your family. Then read this book with or to your children while discussing the importance of the legacies mentioned.
