Are you ready to “Grandparent on Purpose?”
This video seminar series was designed to encourage and equip Christian grandparents by teaching Biblical principles that will inspire you to leave a legacy of faith to your grandchildren.
You’ll enjoy teaching sessions (14 to 30 minutes in length) that include practical demonstrations to help Godly principles stick with you.
Discussion breaks enable you to share with and learn from other grandparents.
For some of you, this workbook will affirm the good things you are already doing with your grandkids.
For others, it will shake your world and give you a brand new perspective on what it means to be a grandparent.
Whether you are on one end of that spectrum or the other – or in the middle somewhere – you are going to be deeply impacted by these few hours.
You will go away filled up with inspiration, ideas, and tools to help you realize your potential to grandparent successfully.
You will unlearn some things, and relearn others.
Your passion for your grandkids will be kindled even higher, and you’ll go away changed.
More importantly, those precious grandchildren of yours will benefit, and they will never be the same because you have listened, learned, and grown yourself.
You are about to embark on an incredible journey. It is our honor to start it with you.
