For the IF in life, for the WHEN of death

Spent a long time talkin' life insurance.  Realized I don't like talkin' life insurance.  I bet setting up a will will be even less fun.  But it's one of those things you just have to suck up and do... like go to the dentist.  (Oh, man -- it's been a while since I've done that too.)

One of the best things that came out of the Seven Steps to Financial Freedom course is that I realized I was under-insured.  I had no idea!  I thought $100K was a lot of K's!  Turns out, not.  Also having my insurance come through work means that if my job goes, my insurance goes with it.  So the search began. 

One of my friends goes with Met Life and their slogan is "for the IF in LIFE."  That's pretty good. 

What's your after-life insurance?  Truth is we really need death insurance and that's an inevitable WHEN.  At the Esto Vir Conference one of the speakers made the comment that when we die we'll live forever... for all eternity, either in heaven or in hell.  Woah.  That hit me.  Another thing that hit me was that venial sins may not me mortal sins but they add up to crippling us spiritually.

Makes me want to "up" my death insurance policy of going to Confession at least once a week or more.  Now I don't like going to Confession but I like having gone to Confession.  Same thing with talkin' life insurance or setting up a will or going to the dentist.
