One of the best ways to leave a spiritual legacy is to record what is important to you in a blog. If you use a free platform like WordPress or Blogger, you don’t pay any fees, can use free tutorials, and the posts will still be there for your great, great-grandchildren to visit someday. Here are two examples:
Oh Amanda is one of many mommy blogs who do a wonderful job of recording family memories while sharing cleverness with us.
Jeanette Goes to Russia (again) is the personal record of a second-half-of-life adventure by a woman in love with the people of Russia. She records her mission trips, Russian recipes, and updates of her friends and ministry in Samara, Russia.
