Legacy Grandparenting Summit

Legacy Grandparenting Summit


My name is Ed Miller.
There is a very special event happening in November and I’d like to invite you to join me. The Second Annual Legacy GrandparentingSummit will be held at Lake Pointe Church in Rockwall, TX from November 2-4, 2017. We have a very special discount to offer you as a friend of the National Center for Biblical Parenting. It’s the same as the Summit Group Discount, but you can come as part of our “group.” When you register, just use the discount code NCBP17 and that will reduce the price to $144.00 if you register before May 30. 2017. You can still use the code after that, but you won’t get the early bird pricing. Register Now!
 
The LegacyGrandparenting Summit has quite an array of fabulous speakers and artists as part of the program. I was in Dallas last year for the first Summit and everything about it was top notch. Lean more now. The subtitle for this summit is “Intentional Grandparenting Matters.” You’ll be inspired and challenged to find your calling in ministering to the next generation.

I’ll be doing my newest workshop on Friday at the summit. It’s called, The Grandparent Coach. It may even be a book by then! One of the missions the Lord has me on right now is to mobilize an army of senior adults to mentor the next generation. I’m very serious about this. Our young people need adults other than their parents who will love them, spend time with them and yes, talk, tell stories and wrestle together with difficult life issues. This is all to support the good work of engaged parents. If you’re a parent, you need to work with your children to find these kinds of mentors for them. It’s urgent. You also need to make sure that you’re spending quality and quantities of time building strong relationships and emotional connections with your children. It’s not easy, but these are difficult days and our young people need us more than ever. If you’re a senior adult and your intrigued, write to me and I’ll tell you more about how to be a mentor/coach for young people. (Your own grandchildren or other young people!)

I’m mentoring a number of young people right now. You may remember “Joe” who did 3 videos with me. We talked about his struggle with anger and developed a plan to help him grow in self-control. You likely don’t know that Joe has struggled with migraines for around 5 years now. We’ve discussed why God would allow a strong, tough, active young man to deal regularly with debilitating headaches. We agreed that there was no doubt in our minds that God was good and that he was using this for some good purpose. We just didn’t understand it yet.

Last week, Joe and I had a wonderful adventure planned during his spring break. Well, that plan got derailed as the headache got stronger and stronger. I had to take Joe home, but I offered to stay with him until his mom got home. He suggested that we play this game called, “Table Topics.” It’s just a series of questions on cards that stimulate discussion and story-telling so that you can get to know someone better. We played this game for more than an hour. We shared about our heroes, our favorite family vacations and traditions. We gave our thoughts on the problems in the world that we would eliminate if we had the power. An old guy and a 12-Year old just talked and told stories. It was really awesome.

So, if you’re a parent, please find mentors for your children. If you’re a grandparent, join me for the Summit in November. You won’t regret it.

Finally, you may not have seen the 3 videos with me and Joe. If anyone in your sphere is dealing with anger, you’ll find them helpful.
