What kind of legacy are we leaving for our children? What kind of worldview, moral principles, and values? Are we being intentional about this or just hoping that our children will learn from what they observe from us as their parents?

What kind of legacy am I leaving my children?

This is a question that hammers at me a lot. Every parent leaves behind in their children something of themselves, their culture, and their worldview in their children.

What kind of legacy are we leaving for our children? What kind of worldview, moral principles, and values? Are we being intentional about this or just hoping that our children will learn from what they observe from us as their parents?

What that looks like depends heavily upon the impression we left on our children.

And here’s where it gets sticky, because what we intend to impress on our children, and what they actually grasp from us may not be the same thing.

This month we have looked at how to have a family Bible study and why it’s important. We’ve looked at resources that encourage children and teens to have a quiet time, build eternal values and a wonderful resource for family devotions.

I believe that intentional actions that build faith in our children, founded on and filtered through a specific family vision given by God is the best way to leave a legacy in our children rich in faith.

My Legacy

My parents left a rich legacy in my siblings and me.

A legacy rich in faith.

A few things contributed to that: the way in which they intentionally built a foundation of living by faith through prayer and their decision to filter every family activity through the vision they felt God gave our family.

As we grew, we often reflected on these activities, prayer requests and miracles we experienced as a family.

All of this gave me a very unique and rich legacy that I feel incredibly responsible to pass on to my own children.

The My Faith Story journal is not only a beautiful journal but a wonderful tool to help leave a godly legacy for your children and build in them a foundation of faith that is lasting!

My Faith Story

Not long ago my friend Sunu from Faith Art Designs shared with me this Faith Story journal she created.

I took one look at it and knew I had to share it with you, because it fits so closely with what I’ve been writing about over the past several months!

In the My Faith Story Journal there is space to write how you met Jesus, what you experienced in that moment, and how it impacted your life.

There is space for answered prayers, but not just generally answered prayers, but specific places for provision, miracles, healings and more.

There is also space to write out your calling, promises God has spoken to you, changes He has made in your heart, and so much more.

This journal is 48 pages of absolute beauty!

Each page has an inspirational word or scripture verse to reinforce its purpose.

A beautiful legacy for your children

As I went through the My Faith Story journal I realized how incredibly wonderful it would be to fill this out and pass it down to my children as a written legacy of not only my own life but of all of the godly lives that have gone on before me.

So that as they pour over page after page of how, over the years, God has formed and changed me, called me and answered my prayers they begin to understand the incredible heritage God has given them.

I can’t wait to start filling this out, and then continue adding to it year after year as I store up heavenly riches for my children.

I encourage you stop by and take a look at this lovely journal of legacy!

While you’re there be sure to check out Sunu’s other creations as well!
