Grandparenting Coalition & The Grove CC Newsletter.
Some Grovites may remember Brandon Stoppe; he was our worship pastor at The Grove until 2021 when he took a Worship Pastor position at a church closer to family, because he wanted his children to be raised around their grandparents. We are blessed to have the grandmother of Brandon’s children, Rhonda Stoppe, speaking at this National Conference! Rhonda says The Grove is near and dear to her heart, and shares with us this message: (by Assunta Maria)
Why be a part of a Grandparenting event?
Maybe you’ve asked yourself this question. It seems like grand-parenting, well, should just sort of come naturally – right? Well, I don’t know about you, but for me it did not. As a grandmother of 15 grands, I wanted my time with my grandkids to amount to more than just baking them cookies and watching their favorite shows. (Not that there’s anything wrong with those things… but I wanted more.) Maybe you can relate?
However, I needed mentors and resources to help me learn how to be intentional with my grandchildren. I wanted to know that I am not alone in this pursuit. I longed for a harmonious community of grandparents who would cheer me on and share their ideas from a biblical perspective.
That’s where the Legacy Grandparenting Coalition comes in. They’ve created a wonderful godly community where we, grandparents, can learn from each other, share resources, stories and uplift one another in prayer. And the Grandparenting Summit is just the most amazing gathering of like-minded people who understand the important role we play in the lives of our grands.
I am honored to be one of the speakers at this year’s Legacy Grandparenting Summit. Please gather with us to become a part of this growing force of intentional grandparents who I believe will turn this world upside down for Christ through purposeful grandparenting.
What if your words had the power to impact your grandchild’s life and legacy? Best selling author, Rhonda Stoppe believes they do and she’s here to show you how. In this workshop Rhonda, grandmother of 15, will unpack comical stories and heartfelt insights grounded in biblical truth. This session will help you not only connect with your grandchildren, but potentially influence the trajectory of their future and their generation through the life-giving words they hear from you.
