Estate Planning is a process of maintaining and distributing resources that has been entrusted to us for the benefit of people and other organizations. There are several primary tools that will help you in your estate planning: a testamentary trust (will), living will, power of attorney, representation agreement and an advance directive.
When making a will, we should place others ahead of our own interest in the thought process of creating the will.
A testamentary trust might very well be the very last memory your family and friends will have on you. They will remember you for how well you plan and organize your estate. You want to ensure your estate plan is well planned and organized. It should state your final wishes. It should also make a statement about your example of stewardship. Your family members and friends will remember you for that for years to come and future generations will be able to admire your character and faith.
