February 2017 Orlando Legacy Retreat® Recap

For the first time ever, Inheritance of Hope families enjoyed an Orlando Legacy Retreat® in the luxurious accommodations of Embassy Suites by Hilton. On Feb. 24-27, 8 families from across the country had fun with 2 days at Universal Studios and a day at SeaWorld. Beyond the memories, they gained community, tools, and hope to navigate the challenges of a parent's terminal illness.

Divine Visitor - November 2016

This post was originally shared by Inheritance of Hope co-founder Kristen Milligan in November of 2010.  As we prepare for our largest New York City Legacy Retreat® yet (21 families), we look back at her reflections from the first Legacy Retreat® there.

 

"They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them.”  -- Daniel 3:27

 

As I write this devotional, Inheritance of Hope is hosting its first Legacy Retreat® in New York City.  My prayer is that the seven families gathered there are being blessed with memories, community, and support, just as my life has been changed by these blessings at previous Legacy Retreats®.  This is the first Legacy Retreat® which I have not attended, and my heart hurts to miss meeting the families God has brought together this weekend.  Instead I am home recovering from a difficult surgery, feeling broken and useless despite wonderful family support and an ever-patient and encouraging husband.  I know those of you who have battled illness and the inevitable treatments know what I am feeling.
