When you spend your Wednesday night with us there will be dinner & childcare available for only $5.00 per child.

In the last few years we have experienced some things we felt were unexpected. Here in Utah, at the start of the pandemic, we had an earthquake. There was some significant damage in certain areas, but what we learned is we need to be prepared for things to happen at any time. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that life is fragile and the unexpected can and will happen. This is why all of us, even the healthiest of people, should have some form of a life & legacy binder.

How to love your family well: The importance of a life & legacy binder.

Most of us know we should have some kind of legacy binder in place. Sometimes called a legacy drawer or emergency binder, a legacy binder is a set of documents and information that would guide our loved ones in the event that we are unable to handle things ourselves.

But how many of us have actually taken the time to create a legacy binder?

{insert crickets chirping}

Listen, I know it’s not fun to think about this sort of thing. It’s way easier to bury your head in the sand and tell yourself that this stuff will never happen to you.

Do you have a problem with inertia? When you need to get things done, usually you start with the easiest tasks to accomplish. It’s easier to get a small ball rolling than a big boulder. Typically, this binder idea has been a massive, oblong rock that I haven’t wanted to touch. Why not reach for the pebbles and bypass the heavy stones?

Luckily for us (and for you if you haven’t done this), My UT Real Estate Group has taken the big oddly-shaped rock and turned it into something resembling a bowling ball. It’s still a bit heavy, but we can easily pick it up and roll it down the lane.

They have prepared an 8-Class Course spread over 16 weeks, taking place every other Wednesday. The program contains all the information you’ll need to prepare and complete your life & legacy binder with industry leaders who are subject matter experts to take a deep dive into each category to ensure you can get your questions answered as you prepare your life & legacy binder.
