We are truly blessed when we inherit a godly legacy. The Gift of a Legacy tells the journey of a young man who does not know or appreciate the legacy he has inherited from his great-grandmother, Sally May Anderson. Mrs. Anderson has operated a bed and breakfast for many years. During that time, she has interacted and blessed many famous and many regular folks. Upon her passing, she wishes her great grandson, Joey, to not only inherit Anderson House, but also inherit the legacy of the blessing of Anderson House. The only problem, Joey neither wants nor cares about any godly legacy. All he is interested in is more money to fuel his wild lifestyle. To assist Sally May, we meet old friends from The Ultimate Gift, Theodore Hamilton, Jason Stevens, and Red Stevens. Jason and Mr. Hamilton help walk Joey through a similar journey that Jason took several years before when he received a large responsibility from his grandfather. This is a lovely book and one wishes that a real visit to Anderson House was possible. I received this from the publisher, David C Cook, in exchange for my honest review.
The Gift of a Legacy is tender story reminding us that shifting the focus from ourselves to others usually ends up changing us, and often times even the world.
In this heartfelt and inspirational book, Stovall explains that our real "wealth" lies not in our Financial Assets, but our Emotional Assets: the stories, lessons, values, wisdom image, voice, laughter and love that make us who we are. The giving of one’s self to others is one of the greatest legacies you can leave behind to have others follow in your footsteps. I really enjoyed this book.
