While You May Not Want to Prepare for End-of-Life, Planning for it Can Be a Gift for Those You Love

Author Rick Craig shares guidance from his personal and professional experience in When It’s Time. End-of-Life Planning at Any Age: Make it Part of Your Legacy ($16.99, paperback, 9781662815577).

“End-of-life conversations are not easy for most people. Culturally, the United States has grown less interested in preparing for death. We have no problem planning for life, but death—that’s something we’d rather avoid thinking about. As a result, planning for end-of-life often does not receive the same investment as other life priorities, leaving no clear map laid out for navigating the rough terrain ahead,” said Rick.

Using a pragmatic approach with contributions from experts in their fields, Rick has compiled information regarding thirteen realities loved ones can experience with an end-of-life event. In addition, Rick offers practical guidance for survivors when confronted with legal and administrative responsibilities, emotional processing that can be paralyzing, and returning to work with a strategy.

Rick has over 30 years’ experience developing and leading organizations, both in the private sector and in ministry. As a pastor, he has interviewed hundreds of survivors while officiating over one hundred and fifty funeral/memorial services. Learn how a well-thought-out plan can be one of the best gifts that becomes part of your legacy. Learn more about Rick at www.whenitstime.org.
