At Legacy, we cherish the sacred bond of marriage, a divine union between two souls and the Almighty. Our foundation is deeply rooted in the belief of marriage as described in Gen. 2:24: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Our journey began unexpectedly on a picturesque tree farm, where the serene beauty of the land whispered the idea of a venue. Today, Legacy stands as a testament to love, commitment, and the significance of new beginnings.
Chad, with his deep roots in farming, ranching, and the fern business, and Tera, with her rich background in agriculture and passion for community, together breathe life into Legacy. Their story is a testament to love, perseverance, and the beauty of shared dreams.
From being a part of the family's cattle & fern operation, Chad's diverse career took him from building boats at sea ray, to transitioning over to the nursery industry where he excelled in sales. The entrepreneurial spirit flourished when he and Tera embarked on a landscape material distribution venture, further expanding with the acquisition and transformation of a 28-acre tree farm.
Tera comes from a background steeped in agriculture, from assisting in her family's butcher shop, to being an active member in FFA, where she ultimately managed her own hog operation. She and Chad both share a history in competing in Rodeos as well. Tera's later pursued a degree in Business Administration and Managment at a local college. After 13 years with the Central Florida Fern Co-Op, she transitioned to clerical duties at a local church before rejoining Chad in their thriving tree business.
To Chad & Tera, a legacy is about the ripples we create during our lifetime. It's about inspiring future generations, fostering strong marriages, and building unbreakable family ties. At Legacy, we aim to be a part of your journey, helping you lay the foundation for a love story that stands the test of time.
Love. Love is action and not just a feeling. Feelings can be fickle, and come and go like seasons of the year and seasons of life. Ground yourselves in the Word of God, which is Truth. Get connected to a community of believers. There. Is. No. Plan. B. You entered into a covenant with God and your vows were intentional.
Don’t be too prideful to rely on Godly counseling. Counseling has gotten such a bad stigma, but it is so necessary and beneficial. Whether talking about pre-marital counseling, crisis counseling or counseling to help you through seasons of life, It. Is. Good.
Be adamant in preferring each other over “yourselves” and diligent in not going to bed angry at each other. COMMUNICATE with each other, so that you seek to understand. Listen to each other’s needs and be intentional in meeting those needs.
Men and women truly are “wired” differently. Take time to educate yourselves on these differences. There’s a lot of info. on this, like Gary Chapman’s “The Five Love Languages” and Emerson Eggerichs’ “Love & Respect”.
