Excerpt From The Financial Shepherd
Hope for the Best, Plan for the Worst focuses on the sometimes random, yet inevitable events in life that occur (illness, disease, disability, death) but are never fun to discuss. It is of the utmost importance that we prepare ourselves and others (those that we leave behind) for the perils and hardships of life that often create financial difficulty if not addressed. Unfortunately, many of us find ourselves in a reactive mode instead of a proactive mode; responding to the latest crisis instead of simply implementing the plans that we have already put in place in advance. What’s worse, when times are tough, we tend not to follow our faith, but rather our sight and circumstances.
