The importance of estate planning.

Jon and I presented our first Peace of Mind Protector workshop today.  We started off by discussing the importance of estate planning.  It's good to be reminded every so often.

It's not a stretch to say that estate planning is one of the most important things we can do for our families.

I've heard it described as a deliberate, premeditated act of love.

I can't communicate in such terms myself (being of Norwegian heritage), but I do believe that we plan our estates because we really care about our families.

We want to pass our legacy onto our heirs while protecting them from creditors and "predators."  And we want that protection to be in place long after we're gone.  There is much we can do to accomplish that.

But estate planning doesn't just benefit other family members.  As we age, our physical strength slips away.  So also does our control over our own lives.  Good estate planning helps us maintain control.  That means more power to make the decisions that affect our bodies and our property.  More authority and more options.  Ultimately, it means more dignity.

What's more important than that?
