As the old saying goes: "If I knew grandparenting was going to be so great we would have had the grandchildren first!” But it just doesn't work that way, does it?

There are unique challenges, skills and blessings that accompany this new title, and that's what we'll be discussing together. Come and learn how you can make the most of your grandparenting years.
Throughout generations, rhymes and riddles have been crucial in the development of children. They are fun and children love them, and the reciting of rhymes has provided a warm and nurturing bond between the older and the younger generations. The Bible is filled with powerful messages of courage, wisdom, strength, and even failure. This workshop creates an awareness of the immense value of rhymes in remembering these great stories of the Bible, and helps grandparents use this proven teaching tool of verse to instill an enduring legacy of God’s word in the hearts of their grandchildren.

One of the most important roles a grandparent can fill is that of the facilitator. As a facilitator, Grandparents are in a unique position to create a safe place for grandkids to ask the tough “God Questions.” This may require Grandparents to learn some new skills and gain new understandings of what creates a “safe place” and how to listen differently. The goal of creating a safe place is to assist our grandchildren in finding their own personal faith.

Understanding the trauma that is often a part of adoption and fostering will be included in our conversation together.
