He and his wife, Diane, live in Colorado Springs near their six grandchildren. They conduct several GrandCamps each summer for grandparents and grade school age grandchildren.
Five sessions of encouragement and inspired teaching
Cavin encourages and challenges “gparents” not to be apathetic in their God-given roll of being a grandparent but to stand strong and to be intentional in their relationships with grand children and grown children. The following sessions explore roles, tools and strategies for taking up the call of courageous grand parenting.
Session 1 : the Courageous grandparent
Session 2 : the Legacy-builder
Session 3 : the Blessing-giver
Session 4 : the Story-teller
Session 5 : the Gate-keeper.
The conference offers ample time for Q/A and time for conversation in small group break-out sessions.
