My Grace-Full Life is a column featured monthly in Forsyth Family magazine. In the August issue, “What Will Be Your Legacy?”
Fun fact for you: August is national “What Will be Your legacy?” month. It’s a pretty profound question. Let’s start with the basics, so we can all be on the same page…what is a legacy? While technically defined as “an inheritance,” the question more often than not makes us wonder how we will be remembered: “What have we done (or what are we doing) that will make people remember us when we’re gone?”
This month, I want to talk about the characteristics of two women – Phoebe and Dorcas. Phoebe and Dorcas both have a passing mention in the Bible, but despite the few words written about them, they have made a lasting impression. A legacy that has endured for the better part of 2000 years.
