Legacy Grandparent Conference - Breakouts - Part 2

As grandparents, we do not receive an "instruction book" with the arrival of our first grandchild. We do not receive invitations to classes where we will learn all the, "in's-and-out's" about grandparenting. We do not find conferences we can attend where we will be encouraged and equipped to return home and understand how to more effectively pass on a heritage of faith to our grandchildren . . . well, not until now!

For the past week I have been sharing with you about the Legacy Grandparent Conference and want to invite you to consider attending this opportunity in May, because if you do, you will find you are engaged, equipped, and encouraged to focus on passing on a heritage of faith to their grandchildren, and will be able to connect with other grandparents who are going to do the same!

Yesterday I began sharing about the Breakout Sessions . . . this conference will provide you with multiple opportunities to learn, engage, and be encouraged and the Breakouts are one way these things will happen . . . and today I'm happy to let you know about three more Breakout options . . .

  • Cavin-Harper-WebCavin Harper – Unleash the Power of Spoken Blessing - One of the most powerful tools God has given parents and grandparents for their inter-generational toolbox is the spoken blessing. This session will unpack the Biblical principles and practices for establishing a family tradition which can transform the lives of every member of your family.
  • Linda-Jacobs-WebLinda Ranson Jacobs – Discipline Tips When Grandparents Have Custody of the Grandchildren – And How the Church Can Help - Grandchildren who have experienced a trauma may have discipline problems which need extra care and consideration. Grandparents may need help in understanding these grandchildren can’t be raised like the generation before them.
  • Cathy-Jacobs-WebCathy Jacobs – Telling Your Story, aka His Story - Sometimes grandparents struggle to share The Good News of Christ with their children and grandchildren.  In this seminar, Catherine demonstrates how every grandparent has an authentic and powerful story to tell.  By answering three simple questions, grandparents of every denomination, will learn to tell God’s story, as they tell their story to their loved ones.  It is a story worthy of being told which often can lead to further meaningful conversations between grandparent and grandchild.
And this is just a peek at three of the ten Breakout options! So, whether you have been a grandparent for a number of years, or are about to be a grandparent, the Legacy Grandparent Conference is for you! You will find the specifics at this link - as well as space to register. Please join us!
