Dennis Swanberg

Host: Dr. James Dobson

July 23, 2022

According to Dr. Dobson, "an inheritance is something you leave to someone, while a legacy is something you instill in someone." On today's edition of Family Talk, speaker and comedian Dennis Swanberg delights an audience through his memories with his family. As he reflects on the humorous moments with his parents and grandparents, Swanberg explains that the spiritual legacy they left him was like someone planting a shade tree. When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he couldn't envision New York City's skyline, and when the Wright brothers built the first plane, they couldn't envision a 747. They planted "shade trees" for future generations to enjoy.
