Come ready to interact with hosts Dave and Connie Wills who are raising their grandchildren. They will be sharing from their story and they would love to hear yours as well.

If your grandchildren live far away from you, this session will give you an opportunity to get some great ideas from other grandparents who have had to find ways to stay connected with their grandchildren across the miles. This session is also your opportunity to share your experience and ideas and interact with other grandparents who are on the same journey. Wayne and Marci Rice are themselves long-distance grandparents who want to hear from you!
"Your grandchildren and other young people greatly need your faith, morality, work ethic, etc. The very best of you can flow to someone young—but a pipe or a conduit must connect the two of you. If that pipe becomes disconnected, your influence will stop flowing. This seminar will use Scripture and research to explain that the “pipe” is a warm relationship (heart connection) with a member of the next generation. In addition, the seminar will present practical strategies for strengthening heart connections and even repairing connections that have been damaged."
In this session, Doug will share his “Legacy Ladder” toolkit and deliver a prescription to help you live a longer, more purposeful life. Research shows that taking action in 7 key areas can add years--maybe even decades--to your life. Each attendee will receive a FREE copy of his new book, which Kerby Anderson says "can literally change your life." His encouraging, practical, and relevant teaching will inspire and equip you to live--and leave--a lasting legacy, secure your future, build a strong family, develop an authentic faith, and make your life count.
As a pilot for American Airlines, Steve was very close to the events of 9/11. Steve was originally scheduled to be the co-pilot on AA Flight 11, the first flight to be hijacked on Sept. 11th, 2001. Through an extraordinary set of divine circumstances Steve was bumped from that flight the night before by a more senior pilot. Now, he tells his deeply moving story of God's providence on that terrible day in our history. Come discover why God gave Steve a second chance and now uses him to teach parents all around the world to parent with purpose and urgency as he introduces you to The Nine Practices of The Proactive Parent. Intensely practical and Bible based, the Nine Practices of The Proactive Grandparent is designed to give grandparents both the tools they need and the hope necessary to build a Christ-centered character-driven home environment. Steve will unwrap the Three Pillars of Parenting, The Motivation Model, The Growth Continuum, The Proactive vs. Reactive Grandparent, and much more.
Grandparents can have significant influence in their grandchildren’s lives, whether they live close by or far away, however one study notes that over 65% of grandparents have a grandchild or grandchildren who live over 200 miles from them. This session will examine best practices and strategies that help bridge physical distance using: planned visits, technology, letter writing, vacations, reunions, and packages/gifts to strengthen the grandparent/grandchild relationship. In addition, if prayer and other spiritual exercises are important to grandparents, how can long-distance grandparents develop these disciplines and experience a closeness which grandparents who live close by may not express or practice?
