Estate Planning means different things to different people. To the young couple that is beginning a family, it means putting a plan in place to care for minor children. To a mature adult, it means planning how assets will be distributed to help care for family and giving to charitable causes. As a Christian an estate plan is an essential part of stewardship. God is the owner of all that we have and it is up to us to be faithful stewards of what he has given to us, while we are living and also as we leave a legacy upon our death.
