Host:Dr. James Dobson
According to research, 3 out of 4 Christian grandparents take on a cultural view of grandparenting rather than a biblical view. When Larry Fowler asked a group of people at a conference how many of them had ever heard a sermon on grandparenting, only three raised their hands. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson sits down with Larry Fowler, founder of the Legacy Coalition, to discuss the great need for grandparents to be involved in their grandchildren’s lives. The most important thing a grandparent can do is live out his or her spiritual walk and testimony. In a rapidly changing society, grandparents are essential!
Larry Fowler is the founder of Legacy Coalition, a national ministry focused on equipping Christian grandparents to fulfill their biblical role of impacting their grandchildren. He is the author of the best-selling books, Rock Solid Kids and Raising a Modern-Day Joseph, as well as several other books on children’s ministry, parenting, and grandparenting. Currently, the ministry’s 70 staff members and key volunteers serve grandparents through podcasts, webinars, blogs, printed materials and other resources. The ministry Larry founded also conducts a national conference on Christian grandparenting called The Legacy Grandparenting Summit. Larry and his wife, Diane, have two grown children, seven grandchildren, and live in Riverside, California.
