Legacy Videos Review by Maggi Beardsley

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr.
Voddie Baucham Ministries

Spring, TX 77379

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the two videos in the "Legacy" box by Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr. As I mentioned them to other homeschooling moms, it became apparent that I was the last one in the group to hear of Dr. Baucham! The second video, Getting Your House in Order, is one that you will enjoy. The first video, Multi-Generational Promise, is one that adults from broken homes and sinful pasts will find particularly healing.

Dr. Baucham is a pastor and author. More importantly to me, he is a husband and a dad to seven home educated children. Dr. and Mrs. Baucham adopted a few of their children. You hear his heart for adoption throughout the messages.

Dr. Baucham asks the question: What legacy will you leave your children? He pauses at just the right spots so that you can take it all in. He speaks from his heart and does not read from his notes, so it is easy to feel part of the audience. As you watch, it would be good to have a remote control at your side. You will need to pause, think, start again, and then pause again to grab your Bible. Dr. Baucham unpacks Scripture, using and explaining Hebrew along the way.

Can I completely explain multigenerational discipleship and faith? Not yet. It's not because Dr. Baucham doesn't do an excellent job explaining his message but rather because the concepts are not preached every day and are new to me. However, after watching the videos twice, I know how important these concepts are. It makes me want to spend as much of the day as possible in family worship time and discipleship.

Christians who wanted to be challenged to think about their faith will enjoy this DVD. Dr. Baucham challenged me in many areas, especially in the way I daily exercise my faith. He challenged me to truly study my Bible. He challenged me to think about each thing that we do as a family or individuals besides discipleship. Grab this DVD and enjoy the challenge!
