About Melody W. Miller

A retired counselor, Melody was thrust into disturbing end of life issues by an emergency Guardianship and Conservatorship of her father in 2005. She realized many of her family’s difficulties could have been avoided with more extensive Pre-planning on the part of her parents. Subsequently, it became Melody's passion to help people organize their affairs so that their families could honor them. Accordingly, the HERITAGE OF HOPE Video Series, the HOH Workbook, and the HOH Website (www.FinishLifeWell.org) all work together to inspire and equip adults of all ages to identify the crucial decisions and complete the essential tasks . . . TO FINISH LIFE WELL.

NO MATTER WHO IS IN THE WHITE HOUSE

No matter who is in the White House, ADONAI REMAINS ON HIS THRONE. The King of Kings has not changed nor will He. Jesus Christ  is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Our citizenship in the United States of America is secondary—not primary. Our first allegiance is to Father God, our Creator, our [...]

WHAT IS OUR HOPE?

HOPE is much more than a positive attitude dusted over our plans for the day or the year 2021. It is better represented by the seemingly delicate pansies we plant in the fall that not only endure the harshness of winter, they bloom!  Coming from our relationship with Jesus Christ, HOPE IS AN INNER KNOWING [...]

OUR CHRISTMAS ANGEL

HERITAGE: Purchased in 1943, this little angel decorated my parents’ first Christmas tree and every one thereafter for 57 years. Our Christmas angel was always placed on the very top of our tree—the crowning glory.  As the decades passed, she was lovingly repaired by Mom, and Dad re-wired her several times. Most recently, my sister-in-law [...]

8 WAYS TO LEAVE A HERITAGE OF HOPE

SAFETY: WHEN YOU BECOME VULNERABLE AND NEED ASSISTANCE? None of us want to be a burden, of course. Even so, we need to realize that we will lose discernment as we age.  My dad hired and fired his entire career, but he lost his ability to read people in his late 70’s. Sadly, there are [...]

“YOU HAVE NOT BECAUSE YOU ASK NOT”

FATHER GOD, I AM ASKING . . . that we may humble ourselves under your mighty hand (1 Peter 5:6). You are our Creator God, the true Ruler of this Universe. We thank you for the gift of choice you have given to us (Rev. 3:20, Matt. 23:37). We choose You. We ask that You [...]

A CONTRAST OF TWO KINGS

                                         OLD or YOUNG? The 12th chapter of Ecclesiastes tells us that King Solomon was well acquainted with physical decline. Jesus was still a young man when he gave his Upper Room Discourse, but he too [...]

GOD’S PRESCRIPTION FOR SHALOM

Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and  petition, with thanksgiving. Then God’s SHALOM, passing all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Messiah Yeshua. In conclusion, brothers, focus your thoughts on what is true, noble, righteous, pure, lovable or admirable, on some virtue or [...]

CONTRASTING THREE KINGS

In this little book, BREAKING THE KING SAUL SYNDROME, author Jonathan Martin contrasts King Saul’s fearful, jealous reign (I Samuel 8-31) to the faith-based generosity of his son, Jonathan. Jonathan willingly assisted his own replacement, David (I Samuel 20). Are we, like Jonathan, listening to the Lord and placing obedience above our own interests? Few [...]
