Robin Strachan, author, Evanston, Illinois
"I like the practical spirituality of Unity. There are tools I can use in any given moment. I can sit down with my coffee and Daily Word ® in the morning, and it sets the tone for my day." This is how Robin Strachan, a romance and mystery author in Evanston, Illinois, describes how she starts her day. This is also true for many Daily Word readers.
Robin first found Unity in 1990. She was introduced to Unity by two walking buddies who were members of Unity Temple on the Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri. She understood Unity principles, and talking with her friends helped her feel more stable in her spiritual path.
When Strachan was a child, she knew she could manifest. It was easy for her to envision something she wanted and then make it happen. She was comfortable with Unity principles before she knew they existed.
After years of enjoying various Unity publications and booklets, Strachan decided to add Unity to her estate plans. The recent changes to the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act have made her aware of the advantages of donating through her individual retirement account (IRA).
"The reality is that retirement funds, when passed down to heirs, are taxed heavily," says Strachan. "Now there is a limit on the number of years that an heir can take out any remaining funds. But if I pass along my retirement funds to Unity and other charities, 100 percent of what is left goes to further the good works of these organizations."
Strachan feels blessed to be able to donate to Unity.
