Giveaway for You to Use with the Grandparents Who Bring Grandchildren to Your Ministry

Almost four years ago a group of people met to talk about if there was a need for a ministry which equipped and encouraged grandparents to hand down the faith to their grandchildren and which called upon churches to serve the grandparents in their church by developing a Grandparenting Ministry. This group became known as the Legacy Coalition and four of our Grandmas with Heart were there - Sherry Schumann, Linda Ranson Jacobs, Cathy Jacobs and me, Lynda Freeman. 

The following May we were invited to speak at a grandparenting conference in Minnesota - the general sessions were filmed and turned into a resource any church is able to use to equip the grandparents in their ministry. This DVD resource - Grandparenting DVD: Strengthening Your Family and Passing on Your Faith is a two DVD set with ten sessions and a workbook; the speakers are Larry Fowler, Josh Mulvihill, Cavin Harper, Valerie Bell, Rob Rienow, Linda Ranson - Jacobs (one of our Grandmas with Heart), Cathy Jacobs (another of our Grandmas with Heart) and me, Lynda Freeman. I'm very happy to say the Legacy Coalition sent one set for me to review and a second one for me to give away.


Grandparenting DVD: Strengthening Your Family and Passing on Your Faith

Favorite Features - 

  • Each session on the DVDs runs for 27-33 minutes (except for the last two - one by Rob Rienow on how to pray and read the Bible with your grandchildren and the other by Cavin Harper on unleasing the power of spoken blessing) - perfect length for a class to watch and then discuss.
  • Topics include - 1. why establish a grandparent ministry, 2. what is the Biblical role of a grandparent, 3. how to pass faith to future generations, 4. loving grandkids in scary times, 5. never too late: encouraging faith in adult children, 6. grandparenting through a child's divorce, 7. the art of single grandparenting and 8. passing on a heritage of faith with enthusiasm and joy.
  • Includes a workbook written by two of our Grandmas with Heart - Sherry Schumann and Cathy Jacobs.
  • This is an excellent resource for you to use with the grandparents who bring their grandchildren to your Children's Ministry.
Legacy Coalition says; "Many powerful voices are influencing our grandchildren, from those at home and in their schools to those in the world of entertainment and media. What are you able to say as a grandparent to speak wisdom and godliness into their lives? 

Grandparenting DVD: Strengthening Your Family and Passing on Your Faith gives you a biblical foundation for investing spiritually in your grandkids, walking you through the principles of influencing them for Christ--from sharing with unbelieving grandkids to discipling them into a mature faith. This DVD series is perfect for individual use, small groups, or Sunday school classes and features eight family ministry experts with over six hours of video content."


I have to say, since I am part of the founding team of the Legacy Coalition and a speaker on this DVD series, I do believe    Grandparenting DVD: Strengthening Your Family and Passing on Your Faith is a valuable tool for any church and for any grandparent as well. But, even if I were not, I would still find the content of the sessions to be excellent and would want to watch the DVD to learn how I am better able to hand down the faith; and want the grandparents at my church to do the same. So, yes, I recommend it, because I am one of the speakers, but more importantly, I recommend it, because I believe it to be a solid resource and a necessary tool for all grandparents.


As I mentioned, the Legacy Coalition sent me one Grandparenting DVD: Strengthening Your Family and Passing on Your Faith DVD set (with the original cover design) to review and a second DVD set (also with original cover design) to give away on May 5, 2019 (USA only).
