Grandparenting – Josh Mulvihill

What is the role of a grandparent? While the world tells you it’s time to retire and relax, you have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of your grandchildren and leave a lasting heritage for your family that will bless generations to come. In this podcast, Josh Mulvihill explains culture’s misleading messages about grandparenting, provides a biblical overview of the role of grandparents, and shares encouragement that will give you a vision to impact the next generation for Christ. In addition, you will be given practical methods to disciple your grandchildren and navigate your place in the family. You are needed as a grandparent–and not simply as a babysitter or a playmate. If you want to care for your grandchildren, give them something that will truly last: a firm spiritual foundation and a close personal relationship they will cherish forever.

Dr. Josh Mulvihill is the Executive Director of Church and Family Ministry at RenewaNation. Josh served as a pastor for nearly 20 years, has a PhD in Family Ministry, serves on the board of Awana, is the Assistant Editor for The Review Magazine, and is the author or editor of ten books on parenting and grandparenting including Biblical Grandparenting, Biblical Worldview, and 50 Things Every Child Needs to Know Before Leaving Home. He is married to Jen, they homeschool their five children, and live in Minnesota on a farm where they raise KuneKune pigs, heritage breed chickens, and their black lab Liberty. Josh enjoys camping with friends, reading a great book next to a crackling fire, and catching fish in Minnesota lakes.
