Why Legacy?

We only have One Life - One Legacy that we can leave behind. We will live one life and by our actions provide the written material for our legacy. However, it will truly be written and interpreted by others after we have left this world.

So I ask myself, and I ask you, what is the legacy which you desire to leave behind?What did you write today in the chapter entitled "today"? Did you advance toward your desired legacy, or did you retreat? What you will become is who you were today.

As I write this blog I will be simultaneously challenging myself, and I trust challenging my readers to leave a legacy that matters. One that challenges and changes those you encounter daily and on your journey in life. You have One Life - One Legacy - make it count!

Blogging Truth

For those of you coming over for a visit from Linn's blog - let me just say - she knows what she is doing, she will post often & she will encourage you with her great stories. I... well I don't have a clue what I am doing. Those of you who thought it would be fun to hear from me more often - well I have one creative thought every month or so... that's when I sneak onto Linn's blog.

To hear about our family and what God is doing in many amazing ways keep watching Linn's blog. She's a great story teller of God's faithfulness and unbelievably great wife and role model.

My blog will be more about training those already committed to Christ to become all they can be for him. Also, i am not consistent at this point at posting though I hope to be. I do not take much time to correct - my grammar is spotty and my spelling atrocious. If you are still up for the journey, then welcome aboard. I will be praying that as you pray God will open the door of your heart to the legacy He already has planned for your life. dw


  1. Please let it be noted that I was your first "follower", way before Linn ousted your blog. Do I get a prize or something?? Linny gives away prizes you know.
