Be Intentional . . . Pray & Go to the Summit in 2017!

Today I am very happy to share with you two ways for you to make a significant difference in the lives of the children you love - no matter where you live.

First of all, you are able to pray. When we make the choice to be intentional Christian grandparents who pass on the faith, praying is an essential part of this choice. And, God has promised to hear, listen to and answer our prayers! Look at Jeremiah 29:11-14a . . . 

I know the plans I have for you,” announces the Lord. “I want you to enjoy success. I do not plan to harm you. I will give you hope for the years to come. Then you will call out to me. You will come and pray to me. And I will listen to you. When you look for me with all your heart, you will find me. I will be found by you,” announces the Lord.
I love these verses!

So, praying for our grandchildren is something we all are able to do! And, September 10, 2017 is National Grandparents Day and Grandparents Day of Prayer! Join with me and a million intentional Christian grandparents to hold our grandchildren before God! "Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) is claiming National Grandparents’ Day on September 10, 2017 as a Grandparents’ Day of Prayer. We believe the battle for the hearts and minds of our dear grandchildren and their parents can be won only by praying grandparents who sense the urgency and unite to do battle in prayer.In the past, united prayer has always bridged the gap between a great need and a great aw akening! Our grandchildren and their parents urgently need our unified prayers. Let’s be a community of grandparents uniting in prayer for our families." You will find information about how you are able to be part of Grandparents Day of Prayer at this link.

Second, if you have not registered already, do so now and join with hundreds, if not thousands, of intentional Christian Grandparents from across the country - and even around the world (last year five countries were represented) at the Second Legacy Grandparenting Summit. "The Legacy Grandparenting Summit is a national conference for today’s Christian grandparents who want to be inspired and equipped to pass their faith on to their grandchildren. Now in its second year, the Legacy Grandparenting Summit has been designed to equip and encourage this generation of active grandparents to stay connected and involved with their grandchildren in positive and powerful ways. Through nationally known speakers, breakout workshops and an extensive resource center you’ll find encouragement, teaching, and inspiration. This year’s Summit will be November 2-4 at Lake Pointe Church in Rockwall, TX. Register now to reserve your place! Space is limited so register early! Early-bird and group  discounts are available." You will find all the info you need about the summit at this link.

Pray, join with grandparents from around the world in praying and learning with the Grandparents Day of Prayer and Legacy Grandparenting Summit! You will be so glad you did . . . and so will your grandchildren for generations to come!
