Your Legacy of Words: The Workbook By Eric Sheridan Wyatt
Paperback: $16.99
Ships in 3-5 business days.
When my grandmother died and I was asked to give her eulogy, I had, in my possession, one of her Bibles. In the margins of that Bible, she had written several things: words of wisdom, take-away... More > points from some sermon or another, personal exclamations. In addition to that Bible, I also have several recipe cards, written in her sometimes-unsure script. These relics are precious; they are more valuable than a priceless antique or an original Monet. I am happy to have them. What I don't have, are her stories—those stories she would tell after dinner, or while she was stringing beans, or sewing—those stories that would pass on to me the beliefs, values, and experiences that had shaped her life. I cherish the few pieces of her story that remain, and I long for more. Ultimately, whether the writing you do in response to this Legacy of Words Workbook is done for your own benefit, or you plan to pass these words on to someone else, what you are committing to do is leave “just a little more” of yourself behind.< Less
