We first called Blue Trust to determine how soon I could retire. Our Blue Trust advisor guided us on a spiritual path at exactly the right time to focus us on God’s will at this stage of our lives and we will be forever thankful.

I've been involved with financial planners for well over 40 years. There's very few of them that do it like Blue Trust. Very few concentrate on giving as part of the overall plan.
