#3 - Timing, When to Give and When to Keep

Uncategorized Jan 18, 2018

Today’s topic is timing….when to give and when to keep treasures, keepsakes, family heirlooms and all the “stuff” that we accumulate over time.  This is a challenge for me because I find there can be a lot of emotion tied to “things”.  So we have to ask ourselves some serious but simple questions.


It helps to ask something as simple as “do I love this?”  Sometimes we don’t even “like” a particular item we’ve been holding onto, but we continue to keep this item because we feel guilty giving it away.  Two important reminders….you should release any guilt you have of letting go of something because you can still hold onto the memory but do you really need the item around to remind you of this memory?  Then make sure you love what you have sitting around or have up on your walls, or in your closets.  Many times you will find things you have held onto were more to please the...

#2 - Discovering New Things

Uncategorized Jan 11, 2018

There is so much to discover as you live life.  Each new stage of life forces you to stretch yourself and figure out how to maneuver through.  Just think about your first experience at being a parent.  You certainly didn’t have that all figured out, you had to discover a lot of new things.


Discoveries are exciting.  Sometimes through discovering we learn a whole lot more about ourselves.  Recently, my dad was sharing with me pages from his journal that he had kept.  The pages were all yellowed with age but I was shocked that my dad had journaled so much over the years.  It struck me so because I have been a journaler for years!!  I love to record my thoughts, events, emotions at particular times in my life.  I felt connected to my dad when I realized we had this common thread over the years.


Discovering and uncovering thoughts, ideas or information also can help us gain a new perspective.  Recently, my daughter shared with me...

Simple Steps for a Simple Christmas

Uncategorized Dec 13, 2017

Christmas started out so simply in the beginning.  Christ was born in a manger, in a stable with no fancy decorating and complicated planning.  Today we have created such a stressful time if we aren’t careful.

How do we keep our lives less stressful and simple at Christmas time?  What can we learn from the very beginnings when Christ was born?  We need to ask ourselves what is necessary and what is important to us.  Are all those “extra” gatherings necessary?  Are you spending time with the people who are important in your life or are you spending time with some because…..well just because?  

I remember my first Christmas after Tim died, my husband of twenty-seven years, I knew I couldn’t have the same kind of Christmas as usual.  There just wasn’t the physical energy I needed to bake the normal Christmas cookies and cinnamon rolls.  I had to allow myself permission to have a simple and less stressful...

A Christmas Letter from Beth

Uncategorized Dec 06, 2017

Merry Christmas!! I wanted to write you a quick note as we celebrate the Christmas season. I love this time of year for so many reasons, but one big reason is that it is a time of reflection. As I sit here and think back on 2017, I am amazed at what God has done in and with Love Legacy.

Love Legacy has been on my heart for years, decades, really. In this last year, I have begun to see what God has for Love Legacy. So, let me do a little recap.

January and February were big planning months here. I had hired a business coach and social media person in late 2016. I had no idea how instrumental these two creative thinkers and “pushers” would be. They challenged and encouraged me to dream big dreams and make bold statements about Love Legacy and then put them into action.

March was a month of connection. I attended the Leverage conference. This conference is designed to help authors and writers “leverage” their skills into speaking skills. I learned a lot from...

Twelve Days of Christmas Legacy

Uncategorized Nov 29, 2017

How can you make this Christmas full of new memories and meaningful times together with family?  We want to help you.  Each year we have the opportunity to create beautiful legacy moments but we sometimes let those moments slip away without being conscious of them.  We are excited to share some simple, fun, practical ideas to help you create some lasting legacy moments.  We are offering the Twelve Days of Christmas Legacy to each one of you. Let me explain more.

There is just something special sharing Christmas time with small children, they seem to bring life into the holidays.  Their little eyes dance with excitement and adventure trying to capture the holidays.  Their enthusiasm and light spirits help us to remember the joy in this season.  Their little lives are not all entangled in the business of life and all that needs to get accomplished for the holidays.  One of my favorite memories for our family Christmas is passing the baby Jesus...

Happy Thanksgiving

Uncategorized Nov 21, 2017

Can you believe it??  Thanksgiving is in just two days.  It seems we talk about the holidays for months and then once November arrives we are facing the preparations for this special day. How are you feeling, prepared and relaxed, or are you feeling the craziness cycle of trying to get everything accomplished in the last few days?  Let me encourage you to take time to breathe and gain your perspective.  Where is your focus??  Is it on the people you will be sharing the day with or having everything perfect for the day?  What will your family remember most??  Will they remember the memorable stories and laughs or the perfectly set table and your tenseness around the table?


Thanksgiving for me means being with all of my family and sharing many laughs and stories with one another.  This is the perfect time to build your legacy memories.  Let me encourage you to ask your older family members to tell you stories you may not have heard for some...

What a Relief It Is!!!

Uncategorized Nov 14, 2017

Yes, I took my own advice from our Come To The Table Challenge and I can actually say, “oh what a relief it is!”  Our Thanksgiving meal is planned and divided out so that we all will be sharing in the happenings of the day. Again, let me remind you to check us out on facebook at Love Legacy to find our Come To The Table Challenge, I think you will find some helpful tips to make your Thanksgiving less hectic and more calm.


As the holiday planning begins to happen remember to share the load with others. Life is just too busy to think one person can do it all.  When everyone helps a little it makes the big project so much easier to handle.  Isn’t that what family and friends are for anyway?  Putting our hearts and hands together to form a circle of love and support, that is what we want to accomplish.  Share with us what helped you get through your Thanksgiving with less hassle and more connectedness.


As you read this blog please know that I...

Thanksgiving 101

Uncategorized Nov 08, 2017

Good Grief!!!  Does anyone else feel like Thanksgiving is going to be here sooner than they are ready for?  Today is the 7th….so in just 18 days we will be celebrating with family and friends and enjoying the fruits of all our labor in the kitchen.


What does that mean??  That means we are on the final countdown to organizing the details for this special day.  It means planning, preparing, purchasing and prioritizing.  Bethany, my Creative Director for Love Legacy, and I were talking today and she asked me a very important question, that I want to ask you, “what is more important... the food or the people?”  You see, I pride myself in making all my food from scratch.  I love homemade everything!  Even homemade dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls, which take some time. At the same time, if I spend all my energy on making all this homemade food will I have energy left for the most important….the people and the conversations...
