Sample Testimony

If you are a Christian and do not have your testimony in your will, the following has been prepared for you to use as an example. The scripture references are only suggestions, you may have others you would prefer using. The primary objective it to convey your desires to your heirs that you acknowledge God as the source and owner of all that you have and that you desire to pass your stewardship on to them.

Will Preparation

Funeral & Memorial Planning

One of the last things people consider planning for, if at all, are end of life decisions that will have to be made by loved ones after their passing. However, if asked, you would probably have some definite opinions on what you would like done. In addition, most people have no concept of the cost of memorial and burial arrangements and have not made provision in their estate planning. Considering all these things ahead of time is wise.
