This year, I’m using the Present Over Perfect Guided Journal. I read Shauna Neiquist’s Present Over Perfect book when it came out a few years ago and so much of it just connected with me. When I saw she had created a journal, I knew it was right for this season of my life. The journal has small excerpts from the book and prompts to help you think, reflect, and write. I’ll be sharing some of the prompts and my responses.
Prompt (pg. 62): What do you want your legacy to be?
I want my legacy to be love and faith. And not just shallow love or shallow faith. Deep love that changes people. Deep faith that anchors and inspires people.
I want to leave a legacy of obedience and faithfulness. Of following Jesus even when it is hard or doesn’t make sense.
I want to leave a legacy where people say “Kris loved God and others well.”
My friends, what do you want your legacy to be?
