The Legacy of a Lifetime

Recently I said goodbye to my dear parents. My father, Charles Leverett, passed away a month ago from COVID, and my mother, Linda Leverett, passed a few days later.

Mom and Dad were deeply in love through all of their years together. They celebrated 64 years of marriage this last Christmas and their love never wavered. I am so grateful that their prayers to go to heaven together were answered, but I grieve the temporary loss of my parents in my life.

My father was an amazing man of God and a wonderful husband and father. My mother was his perfect counterpart in every way. Together they impacted the world for Jesus – both in the churches they pastored as well as the surrounding communities. Their love for each other, for their family and friends, and for everyone they came in contact with shone through every single day.

A few years ago, I recorded a video with my parents. We shared memories and laughed together as we reminisced. I am so grateful God laid it on my heart to take the time to record this video.

My parents were an integral part in who I am, and I look forward to the day when I will see them again. In this video, I share more about the events of this last month.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
