Are you “will” prepared?

Darrell-WeilandYou’ve been thinking about it. You know you need to make some plans, but there just never seems to be a good time! Sound familiar?

The assets you own when you die comprise your estate. Your will is the primary instrument to determine how these assets will be disbursed after your death. It provides a way to care for the people and organizations important to you now, after you’re gone.

Dying without a will means that the state will determine how your property is distributed, even though you may not be pleased with the outcome. Your will is a legal document that directs the state to recognize your wishes.

You can include provisions to help save on taxes and conserve your property for those you intend to benefit. If you have minor children, you should also indicate who you want to serve as their guardians. The wonderful thing about creating your will is the freedom and peace of mind it gives you to enjoy your family now, knowing that you have provided for their long-term security. It can also allow you to provide a legacy for the charities you support and believe in.

If you have been putting off obtaining a will, or you have an outdated will, now is the best time to take care of this. You can be “will” prepared!

Our Warm Beach Camp Foundation Director, Darrell Weiland, will be happy to meet with you for a no-cost, no obligation, consultation to explain your options and answer any questions you may have. He can help you determine the estate plan instruments that are best for you and your situation.

Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
