As seasons change, new adventures unfold, and unfamiliar circumstances arise, the Prepare volume of Legacy Magazine is here to guide you. Whether facing a deployment, an extended season of separation, an imminent move, or a significant family decision, this volume will help you adopt a stance of readiness for whatever comes next.

It can be overwhelming to feel unprepared, especially when venturing into the unknown without community resources from which to draw insights.
