Host:Dr. James Dobson
Christian grandparents are the missing puzzle piece in the discipleship of their grandkids. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Larry Fowler, founder of the Legacy Coalition, urges grandparents to develop biblically-focused relationships with their grandchildren. Dr. Dobson noted, “An inheritance is what you give someone, but a legacy is what you build in someone.” Grandparents, what legacy are you placing in your grandchildren?
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.
