Have you ever heard a grandparent say, “If I had known having grandkids was this much fun, I would have had them first!”? Most grandparents love being grandparents. Isn’t it interesting, though, how few grandparents have ever had any training in grandparenting, and even fewer have had the benefit of being trained in grandparenting from a biblical perspective.

In our Grandparenting with Grace Seminar, we want to help solve that. Our commitment to those who come to this seminar is that we will provide 1) clear biblical teaching on the mission God has given grandparents, 2) hope in showing how the gospel shapes the ministry of grandparenting and 3) help in sharing practical ideas of how to better relate to your grandkids and their parents for God’s glory and their good.

Our prayer is that you’ll find this seminar surprisingly helpful in developing deep, gospel-centered relationships with your grandkids and their parents. Lord willing, we’ll see you soon–and please invite some of your fellow grandparents to join us as well.

Christ loves.”

“It is rare to find a speaker who knows the heart and soul of grandparents as well as Larry
McCall. By combining humor, examples and an informal but highly focused presentation, he
demonstrated his command of biblical principles and gave his audience immediately useful
take-aways. True learning took place. The audience left feeling excited and motivated.”
Jere Vincent, President of Family Builders Ministries

grandparenting. Larry embodies what he writes about in his book, “Grandparenting with
