SETX Texas Senior News

Learn to preserve your legacy for future generations

Book Review Beaumont TX, Christian book review Beaumont TX, book review Southeast Texas, Christian book review Texas, SETX book reviews, SETX Christian book reviewsOur Southeast Texas senior readers have lived rich lives – and have lots of stories inside.

Too often, our best stories stay locked inside our minds and don’t outlive us.

Sometimes in interviewing Southeast Texas seniors for our SETX Seniors Magazine and we hear stories local seniors have never shared with their families.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to learn how to preserve the stories our Southeast Texas seniors for future generations?

In her book “Unburied Treasure: A Guide to Leaving Your Legacy” (published by WestBow Press) Christian author Catherine Torrez delivers an easy-to-use guide for recording one’s legacy.

“It’s a great gift idea for parents and grandparents!” says Torrez, who was inspired by her ministry work to write “Unburied Treasure”.

“I used to do nursing home ministry,” remembers Torrez. “While I sang to them I would mention that our purpose in life is to serve others. I had many of them tell me privately that there was nothing left for them to do to serve others and that they were just there waiting to die. I truly believe that the minds of our senior citizens are our greatest treasures, especially if they are our relatives. I would tell them that they should take the time to write their legacy – their thoughts, advice, memories, etc. – and pass it on to their children and this can be their new ‘purpose’ in life. From most of them, I would get this blank look as if they were saying, ‘I wouldn’t know what to write or where to begin.’ That is what inspired me to write this guide book that makes it so easy for anyone to write and leave their legacy.”

At 108-pages, “Unburied Treasure” presents a simple and engaging format for both new and experienced writers. Divided into five chapters, the book includes helpful introductions and encouraging writing prompts. It  includes a place for a photo and a detailed family tree map.

“So many people say that they wished that they would have taken more time to truly know a person and hear their advice and experiences before they died,” she explains. “This book helps to ensure that it is not too late for us to give this book as the greatest gift one can give.”
