The Benefits of Having a Will

A will is an important element of good stewardship. Writing your will can ensure that your property goes to the people and organizations you wish to receive it. It enables you to choose the person you want to be the legal guardian of your minor children rather than the court deciding. It can also provide peace of mind and certainty to your family and loved ones and help minimize conflicts and unnecessary expenses. The Minnesota Conference provides wills and trusts for members and their spouses at no cost while you are living. To learn more, visit our website at www.mnsdagift.org or call us at (763) 424-8923.
