Samuel’s beliefs and approach to estate planning are:

  1. Every estate plan is unique. It is a love letter.
  2. Speak, teach and preach about peacemaking and conciliation. Never punish.
  3. We are stewards of possessions and wisdom that has been bestowed upon us. Use it  to honor and lift up our loved ones.
  4. Whatever we do, do all to the glory of God.
