So many of the folks we work with have multidimensional stories. They often aren’t just working on a single project, business or mission – instead they are often involved in so many things all at once and so we often wonder about what they themselves hope their legacy will be about. We’ve shared some of their responses with you below.

Years ago I heard an amazing sermon from a pastor named Andy Stanley. The message was all about your legacy and he asked one question, “At the end of your life what do you hope people stand in line and thank you for?” He said if you could answer that question then you would know what you want your legacy to be. I thought long and hard about that one. But……I came to the conclusion that if I was known for one thing it would be that people felt really really loved by me. That my family, friends, associates – and even random people like the woman who makes my green juice or guy who bags my groceries would feel love from me. And because of that love, I would always leave people better than I found them. Read more>>

The most important people in my life are my kids, and I would like to think that I can at least leave a legacy and a positive example for them to remember me by when they need a little push in life. Life will no doubt throw a lot of challenges their way, after all “such is life”. I would like to be able to lead by example and try to give them the inspiration they need to overcome these challenges, whether I am with them or not. I want them to always remember me working hard and trying to achieve bigger things. Then, when they are facing struggles of their own, whether it is studying for a final or lost a job or through any personal issue they may face, they can always remember how hard I worked and hopefully that will be their inspiration to push through their own obstacles. I have seen my mom overcome so much in life and I always think “if she overcame this for us, I need to do the same.” Read more>>
