Our Story

With years of serving families and leaders, our team saw the unmet need to equip families with practical coaching focused on generational success. We first launched the ministry of Legacy Stone to serve families just beginning their journeys, and 7th Gen Consulting formed from this effort to go deeper with families and their unique needs.

The Dangers Facing Families Today

50% of first marriages end in divorce, 67% of people in the US have no documented estate plan, 70% of family-owned businesses fail in Generation 2
