About The Book

Faith . . . family . . . integrity . . . generosity . . . gratitude.

These types of values were once the bedrock of most families and our culture. A quick look through today’s headlines, however, shows these values and many others are vanishing right before our eyes. In a time of unprecedented progress, we as a people are losing our values.

How do we reclaim the values that allow our families—and future generations—to flourish?

With intentionality and with a plan.

Author Trudy Cathy White, daughter of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy, knows a thing or two about family values. Throughout her life, her parents modeled what it meant to be a servant-hearted, values-driven leader and ambassador for Christ in whatever role she was in. And, after spending decades as a missionary, camp director, mother to four, and grandmother to sixteen, Trudy has recognized that our attitudes, faith systems, and habits are tied to the values we are taught as children.

Every family has values, regardless of whether they’re intentional about identifying and communicating them. In A Legacy that Lasts, Trudy unpacks her guidebook for:
  • Getting clarity on your identity by answering life’s three big questions: Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I belong?
  • Identifying your family values with a fun, easy-to-implement exercise for both adults and children.
  • Learning how to use “value experiences” and other strategies to transfer your family values to the next generation.

As a parent, grandparent, teacher, or person of impact to the next generation, you have the power to help shape young people into the men and women God designed them to be. It’s never too late to get started, and this book will equip and inspire you for the exciting adventure of for identifying, preserving, and transferring your family values for the next generation!
