Every adult should have a will to provide for their family and loved ones upon their death. Otherwise, state law will determine how assets are distributed — and that might not be in accordance with your wishes and sometimes creates extra expenses and taxes.
Establishing a will not only allows you to have the control over how your assets will be handled, but it also gives you the ability to extend your Christian stewardship beyond your lifetime. Whether that is providing for special family needs, business decisions or directing money towards Kingdom purposes.
Every good estate plan begins with a will but each individual plan will vary according to specific situations. Contact your estate-planning attorney to find out how your estate could benefit from proactive planning.
