Sample Legacy Giving Love Letter

Dear Children,

We came across a beautiful passage in our quiet time with the Lord recently in Psalm 16 that says, "The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; yes, I have a good inheritance." That verse prompted some heart-stirring conversations that we'd like to share with you.

We are so thankful for the "good inheritance" we have received from the Lord. As we grow older, we want each of you to know how much we love you, and deeply appreciate the many ways you have enriched our lives. We're especially pleased at the many evidences of the Lord's blessings in your lives. And we want you to know that the greatest pleasure you could give us is to pass on to your children, as we have tried to do with you, that same commitment to live all of life as service to God.

We see our Will as an ongoing testimony of our love for the Lord and for you, and that is reflected in the way we have divided our estate among you and the ministries we love. We hope that when the time comes, someone would read Psalm 16, as an encouragement for our family to continue serving the Lord with gladness for generations to come.

We love you,

Mom and Dad
