So where do this real world, you know, at this point, about a couple weeks of being a grandmother and I and I know for months you would you be so sad every time we talk because you were so looking forward to it. And if they like that rascal would never get here. Now your grandmother in your body couple weeks into it, how to go now until all goblin not and delightful now because I'm looking at this child with greater I got more.

I've always been engaged. As you know, I'm the fight fighting for family and trying to do what I can blame doing what I can do crash and little faith that those around him to protect him. How can to secure frankly right now waiting on parent part know why or what I can get what they like. How we are anymore about anything now got me fired because I am a grandmother. I what were doing a Christian perspective.

What we do and when were out on the road and where hosting events and was thinking all over the place and hand stretching back for that coming behind saying what I like you and I ducked with the roadmap with five And were able to say here we can help you carry tools and Not tactics and strategies that really things you can use from God's word and friend years ago with him actually living much to be said, in my opinion Chris about traveling down the road and being F can play you got left ear go right in my getting. You might wish you would turn the other way, or just run straight so it must amazing thing that has certainly made me even more aware of the need for what were doing under the bleachers to say I know you say were in the but I will be curious to see if you heard back that unreal speaking schedule.

I thought I travel a lot. You first meet me that a bad way, having just I don't really like the Energizer, but it but now that your grandma be curious to see if you stay home more. But you also have this burning desire in your heart to help other parents. I will be watching to see how that works out and I can't wait, a lot of families school is now.

I think most places across the country and if we look at some are we going to leave Jeff because he probably go back to school we had to do with all that you be home away from their friends.

How do we fight keep our family together.

Summary the kids are coming back home from school I play for outlet and we were talking about different activities that you and your daughter actually ready to go hot and my family are coming back sending some ascending coming back by you.

You are a great example with you and your daughter. You went hiking you are intentional and purposeful about spending quality time with her going hiking doing doing activity that she enjoyed. I tell you, dad way for your daughter to go off. Mike twisted it like that because the intentionality of what you get your so they would be even a year, but in my case, Nicholas Michelle would know if you you know the home and already out of high school go to college and greet you get ready to join the military and being on memories. Dickie and I worked for five years before they graduate from high school, shifted instead of buying things like your Christmas holidays. Connie weeks we wanted to create memories warning our kids to have happy memories of growing up to me like all families shortly. There were times our families were there was transition, particularly because Vicki was in the Air Force.

The kids move me up lately with the thin, more schools will growing up, and we didn't want it memories wife together to be bad when my daughter in high school one place and we were not Vicki portion. I shifted my work when we could be the one place where they would have to move anymore. We just wanted to do things to create memories together and try to do fun things like you're saying for the past couple weeks because she just graduated school and is only home four weeks before she goes to a military service. I wanted to try to use to be our every week when she was in high school Connie we would on Saturdays and local farmers market. This was something that wasn't dirty with mom that established Christian.

This was something that just she should really look forward to it and it took me a while to figure out outů Laconic you realize that that was something that she liked doing another thing that we used to do when she was in high school was we live right off the Blue Ridge Pkwy. so there hiking trails everywhere there are waterfalls, a lot of neat things to do just outside and so we would go on a regular basis is probably two or three times a week when we would go on a hike. There is a place we called it our meadow where we would other place of one kind of rage on top of a mountain years ago when Tom made clear to nearly all couples often still grasping about waste taxes. I'm sure this is the area where you could have it. We could have a picnic in one of the dogs, and that which is always our special thing that was our thing that we would do what we have in ages. Yesterday Connie.

She came upstairs and I will out about yesterday. She said she didn't say was this place called the blue grilled is often the Blue Ridge Pkwy. 5 mile Hotmail is not just like walking 5 miles along the park. It was costing three and clogging up a gale blues rock and that I am hurting today Connie, I wouldn't trade it for anything because memories happen when you go like there like on the mountain.

Our listeners orbit water special between you and your kids and what I know so hopefully she will listen to something that my strategy is the notion stress conditions into officer training school and she scared about what happened.

She's anxious about going to medical school in the fall.

I know that they think of them bothered to talk about when we get away about 30 minutes into one of these types loosened up and she starts to talk, you know, so that's good because I want her to have the opportunity to ask questions and I'm trying to I'm not always as good as I should be Connie about keeping my mouth shut, but I'm trying to learn it like a bit older than are offered by selected and then you try to be careful to help guide them still be decision-makers along to make decisions but there just a farmers market are going hiking or road trips to different places a few weeks. He went to visit her before she graduated and she was going school in Baltimore not far away is you ever been to Lancaster. One of favorite places in the world. There's a big Amish community there a few moments thinking you don't know Amish people don't use electricity if I don't use cars a ride horse and buggy are bicycles and you kind of like it was maybe 200 years ago and so I took her there and try to create memories that I do this a lot and some running other people I think are critical sometimes the things we do a little more difficult and more expensive, but every summer I make a list as being intentional about doing things and I'll do whatever you were different because kids are going school different places so I might have to go where they are. Vicki I will but I'll do searches. So for example when Alma was a Baltimore I would search on Google, which anybody can do three day trip from Baltimore so I have the money. I like maybe some of our other listeners to maybe spend the night somewhere. But there are a lot of places Connie that you can go that are absolutely free and within an hour to where you live. I think about like in Florida where you live, there are so many cool places in Florida and this show is brought to you by generous jokes coffee company with the Christian perspective, this is the answer that Christians and conservatives have been looking for a coffee company that gives back causes you care about. Order your copy today at shop generous Joe's daughter and even subscribe to a subscription coffee plan and never forget you or causes you care about locking the fixed fee to Siebel come to life this December. I joined nationally for radio and found a foundation to create life change the world of meaning, traveled from all over the world's religious clutter explores Christianity's most tragic, the Wailing Wall don't want put Chris through the winding alleyways to Nancy so place that I think is the fee firsthand what the Bible took place touring Israel with Dr. Chris Hughes is a travel on and get ready for an unforgettable trip last a lifetime time creating and sharing is joy in American don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes was the order given this day June 17, 1775 by Col. William Prescott to the colonial troops defending Bunker Hill. They were aiming at the wall of 2300 British soldiers marching toward them from the Boston Harbor in their bright red uniforms with units fixed twice. The Americans repel them till they ran out of gunpowder over 1000 British died in 500 Americans. Col. Prescott wrote let us all be of one heart and the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free 1888 USA. Talk about things that you can do with your family keep you in shape. I would include you to try to be scheduled for little while you two things that you want to do this summer.

I was sure before the break that every summer I make a list of my kids are all grown. You're in a couple weeks as I get older you move away, but as I share with Connie.

I want to create memories when they can look back and remember that we did plan things as a family and just give them a chance to be alone with me and Sharon and talk things and was Vicki as well and I look for things to do every summer and I just googled like day trips from where we are and you would be amazed now live in a cool place about your hikes that I could do waterfalls all over within a couple hours or trout fishing or on we will talk about inner tubing before the break, and no matter where you live.

I guarantee you there's really off the wall thing that you can do.

Connie did you and Tom do this kind of thing in the summer.

Actually I just recapping that point I thought I you first day when you're getting ready to enter your holiday summer holiday break and schedule daily activity and your kids are away at the little harder. You are all really close to lifecare and M now all the time and and that when the kids are younger and you look to find Kylie to create defining moment defining moment become lasting memories and I can't.

Well it was not intentional happen. We think that we need to schedule daily activity that fit your budget your time and your location.

Tell when we start out today that always encourage parents, kids involved made a comment you and how many we went hiking down my life.

I tried to track to change it up a little line the outdoors can block boardgame content lab water and can't let hiking down don't like the same thing that talking about building a family and learning that differ this time oriented data next week on next Saturday or Wednesday going to do that family or in your case, your children are harder to get with everything I can go for a walk for Kenneth to go shopping for a little bit of time that you want to schedule activity.

Something happened to our children correctly Wednesday no pumping and being planning something to look forward to instead a private moment which kicked out like terrier planners say there are organizers they want to know what Connie and Fred Connor played that expectation of how fun it going to be better than the actual day lead at it is that about all I we don't have anything or let's go see a movie or go have ice cream or something like that.

Like you can't know what Connie and let them feel valued and that they have worked that year taking time to them and cleared them and what is going to give them bond that happens and that behind behind. In addition to the intentionality of creating, defining important and thoughtful about God and keep your Agent. Their intra-their ability. I do not hiking well maybe you need to about how men and I say her condition by electronic or good about how it always one time I broke my rule. We can always be prepared to for all these years, I have always cure like backpackers like a really good water. I didn't take anything yesterday and tomorrow.

The five mall the building would mean you committed 1.4 membered of hazel on got something I don't know that you will want to initiation by the summer. Well I I I wrote down to well I think I can put together a rainy day.

You can't get out our superhot day because I'm down in Florida do don't go scavenger hunt in your own yard picking or in your neighborhood and scavenger hunt deer which is probably a lot of crap. Naming cut and how do weekly wonderful skills and talent that we have a long while you when we have more time we can do neighborhood. Game days are put on a plane for the neighbors and invite them to come along and be part of the family and get to know them and let them get to know you a little bit when you have on your left. On a cold that we need to do this with everything about everybody on our street to come down and we would just cook a lot and just to get to know your neighbors really know the neighbors and the people in the street and old-fashioned street quality might be something fun for people to give you mentioned cooking so this is something you must not that into all the gotten older going to get something on what I do. She was watching the Food Network and is a show called Choctaw County work.

Basically these aspiring young ships come in or given a basket of really weird inquiry and all they have to use those ingredients to cook all your different dishes. The homologues to do will get mom and purchaser even though she is like being in boxing difficult. So they come up with like ingredients that you would use normal you take take this frozen TV dinner and turned to some, gourmet meal and have to be spent but come up with some weird weird ingredient when you go to Walmart by and have a cooking and swallowing even think about things. Just a lot of what we do is real. Another thing we do with food and a lot of people out there listening Connie have these all flat is one thing you have on the countertop, plug it in and you can make pancakes of so-called and will pass a pastor friend of ours years ago we would be Hawaii invited us over to dinner and we we do this with the kids periodically when they were in high school loved you we were going to Japanese steakhouse and sometimes that can be expensive and you can't afford to go to a Japanese steakhouse.

What these missionaries did for us.

They invited us over this flat and they had a little ball will roll on you and your coda.

You can hear yellow squash maybe a bowl with shrimp or pork or chicken. Whatever you can afford different kind of the different kinds of vegetables and they said it little table, we should do with the kids. We have these bowls of ingredients and everybody could cook on that flat iron thing on the table what they wanted to eat was like having your own Japanese steakhouse at home with much much cheaper rate stolen clinician something fun about everybody listening. Connie can have a bonfire at their home and secretly want to take a commercial break. I don't know this is something you can do with your favorite bonfire for your grown-up at weekly.

Okay, here you can use wars.

Everybody does work or I love really hot dogs and part of what I do with the kid's I would make them your with my daughter. She will likely go to the woods because they can teach you how to carve a little portable stick and she would have to click on stick here something that most is a little smoky that you can bother like miniature sausages like ovals grocery store you might be too much longer will sausages that you get cocktails Boston Meadows and then by package and this and then if you go to Lowe's or Home Depot called Dallas which is just a long stick. Now again on the redneck committee about this book is stick on the all.

Maybe some yellow and clean. You will use the stick in New York you can go for less than a dollar will probably buy a drywall home which is a long your home store you build a bonfire in your backyard. Of course you safety and Connie would you do you think a candy container and you wrap the biscuit around the end of that the biscuit over the far end. Okay.

And when you click the stick over the phone you pulled you pull off the stick and then it know you have a big strong Christian heritage, most Americans don't know if it's really important role God and the Bible is American foundation, Dr. Chris Mason with crystalline bargaining journey discovering the hidden much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal health of all the government and the mental health new kind of republic acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of the mounting father Christian principles.

Visit our website to learn how you and your church can join and support this exciting movement will hiking will work on what we can do to keep a family together. Would you recommend we do this form of memory and "family" now it's funny when we are all going out one of the things we said we we thought about and I thought about live to be with their friends. They line to be the relational revelation about the way God made us to be about another friend got and we would go every single weekend for a few nights during the week after after work we would go out on a lake. I live in Florida like to change from and we would just go to being or the kid learned he or wait for it to be long now that went back and prayed with Kathleen back. My point in doing that was it with something our kids really started to look forward to. No one wanted their devices.

One, they would get wet and willing to fund their turn. Being in the water or multiple kids being on all float in the water and making memories. Of course you want. Whatever it is we did in class we want to make it fine. It may not be sidesplitting but we want to make it fine. Everything is not a life application everything that teaching opportunity. Although we want to make and I know you want to kill anyone clean out all the things that we that we can keep this activity we need to step back from that during the particular activity online. I can't bend my friend to the private thoughts and feel that having their fears are meeting their dream and when your house clean like you and Holman were roundabout or were on a bike ride. We we very long bike rides at the family and course when you have seven people on by little chore right there around bicycling thing, but they shared experiences and shared experiences that they remember and they talk about and why when our kids get together.

Not in conflict there is not a candidate for making fun of me remember that the Orient time when we were out downward on. Remember that mishap collection not perfect moment Greenacre is there, the things they laugh about and talk about any now I home I always share when speaking and it talks about a grown-up, stunning, and it's a great reminder that this even with letting the short went. As you know, if you think about your kids first like first year, like birth to say four years and really don't much mean here they don't know anything in here all they know they're hungry and tired grandbaby tired and hungry and even happy diaper changed mean there's not a whole lot that going on beside growing, informing and shaping continued for several years, and 1516 will patient be working and going to school doing part-time work summer job match train with 10 to Chris we really only have like 414 4015 11 years 11 years.

Only 11 plumbers really think about 11 commerce and streamline, streamline allotment and more difficult children and make those memory so my point and practices I wanted are can't Shakespearean follow fear of missing out when they heard that the outlets are getting together.

Nobody wanted to mess it because it was bound to be eventful. Whether it was my band or at a fun event gone awry. That turned out to be funny after everything with fixed whatever it was we wanted when we said hey Mike how the kids are all grown, we have taco Tuesday. There is a Mexican restaurant.

We like to go to.

We just say 630 note this restaurant show up if you can. Everybody will alternate schedule to get there because we did the work going into this even when they were little voting going to the beach that taking camping trips and are being mentored and are being traveled the country. One summer we spent the summer doing I can't talk about it so we want to we want to be intentional. Make a schedule craft make it fine.

We want to encourage that thoughtful playtime of being explorers and then ensure that risktakers and we want to remember that we give them the time activity are our opportunity to reinforce the life skills they can teaching them to bookwork so we know they can learn certain things to all women take a break and see how that applied to real life and how they read about something like when your family was in Hawaii for air. I okay now I know I sure that those are some of my thought and they will love you like you said you could go get a little bit on key Joe's will talk about those things jogging and had fun. So folks, if you live all show to be intentional have to be expensive. A role normally answer right now.

Yes, you are so many things you can do fun and she left the building where you can create younger kids.

You can create your own home. You.

You mentioned about my mom's gone blank on you talked about Chandra's absolutely free to go. My son Christian loved pilot old. I'm just plain old Conjectures girl who was on the evening and he loved Capt. Jack so I know one child was not something in the yard and created a treasure if I was one thing the plan include something else and things like that are absolutely free and you can do.

Connie hot like Hobby lobby or Michael's different craft stores. We have a Hobby lobby where I live and I will give you your such a strong Christian company and their family once recounted the Museum of the Baltimore-Washington. I love supporting and helping them with Hobby lobby and are still one of them. If you have one in your area one or not anyone wants is a rhythm with certain things on sale on a regular basis, but school bus in the back of a clearance just about given stuff away and with my teenagers. I did know how this will all see the Lucknow a while back I found little of what plastered all these little County little figuring a little water so I bought our family back in the beginning, newspapers and cable craft can where everybody had to pay and so that forced us to be together for about an hour. The teenagers balked at the beginning later on, they surely do enjoy now Christmas. I want Christian is unique and different. If I would push back little memories.

There was this thing that don't cost much want to be intentional and trying to create new memories with her family upon unit) working like you said we don't have much to carve out to be intentional with the schedule another commercial grade chocolate go scheduling on my daughter all men everything schedule and she ordered you said to the weeks she will go on going almost to a fault. Christian on the other hand, don't send me a calendar and I don't want to know on the calendar.

Which makes it really difficult.

I do things we can do to build a family unit grandparenting and one conversation with your kid to school. Some of them are still working or talking about things that we can do to keep families together some of the things that you will both work that y'all did to try to intentionally create memories when you're just right hop on the bike and go for miles and miles that there were little one baby in the car and envelope. I think 91 and Tom is becoming another clear mission minded meaning, we want to bring our neighbor can be part of our family wanted to get a lot on show them out when family stood for and what our values work out and unfortunately a lot of them don't want to have a great thing about health and home and fell. We Holman in the evening we would have neighborhood kickball tournament and leaving competitions in the street and now we have a kid on different teams that have all the neighbors wanted to be there. We're trying to build a relationship with our kids and what the best way to include their friend and not journey we would we would study earlier in the evening now and you now you can just all the daytrip in our go to whatever song is being they have to talk about their stating what you think about it that when industry is grounding out what what what what what what why are they on I read in the little city in central Florida and there's a really big lake called Lake Apopka, one of the larger fishing lake in the country in each and keyboard is remarkable for the fishing unit with all the celebrities and dignitaries with Milo Finney and they would go back to fishing well the culture department government was actually having the farmers to grow inadvertently, distraction to the lake from runoff from the farm while they have just become a real micro example of something in your neighborhood in your community. It costs you nothing you can feel the passion and interest in your own children and just for our family. It became talk about friends of Lake Apopka. What are they doing restoring the lake is a lake coming back and the kids learn about fishing investigators. They learn about the damage we do have to be a good art.

Our land don't know anything that we do and you can do here in Denver year-end Arkansas or Oklahoma is unique to your stay go go deeper than that. Your state or county or city neighborhood.

Find out what makes it special. Anything you can then start talking about it as I get older and making a deeper and learn more about your city and they start to feel like they own ownership. I'm actually and it makes me think about America. We want to instill in our children that their passerby is not if not all find find the next 10 to learning and understanding that they matter that our kids are going to grow up and they need to understand their heritage, their family, like they need to understand that this is what I do got there and teaching them to have a awareness of the footprint that makes sense that we are very intentional family. Whatever it is that were doing.

We want them to see more to it than just the superficial role great idea and will use the morning about your community could not make you want to be forgave ownership to every community quality just about one type of museum called museum there might be a museum within the building up of the church in Tennessee. All trade, Tennessee. The weekend is just a small little community and they meet an old school and one of the alcohol between school and church. I never knew that was there and wouldn't know what all but inside that building a museum there. They will have the history of the people that had failed to that community and every community like you say something like the look of your kids were involved with the lake. I'm another of my water, solar water conservation."

You talk about your health and okay.

Did your way in every community in the United States or the local school district and they have different activities that your family could take you and like you I will try to protect you awake where I live we have about the strange and is an organization that have was called the river keep researching your community.

If you have rivers in your community. Almost every river in the country is what is called a river keep its own activities lately to kayak a river.

Once incorporated all the garbage rebel war, home life, staking altogether. Runoff is an issue that also windstorms, rivers rise in Oakville, Waterford and is structure like group structure along the riverbank that it can cause damage of the river in and out across the country. There are days where they have large staking day towards a piece of wood wall but it becomes a tree all you do is you you you will you stick the stakes into the ground in a matter of time, tree, create a root structure and something fun for the family because you could say I love scope was largely in the wilderness. One little or whatever it may be going, we used to do. We were trying to teach our kids the importance of serving others and serving Jesus so we could summer. We couldn't do it every summer, but a lot of talk we would try a lot of other families do this to you. A lot of churches lead summer if you can't get to work on your way.

Or maybe your own church vacation Bible school of education Bob and in every community on the church's mobile school as a family was on vacation Bible schools not always the following are not working after work, you could go take your family on a mission trip to Georgia another nomination another church across town is typically small churches probably always looking for help, they might not have enough people and their children with their community and natural way without having to get rid of the hotel without a gap dropped another town is something you can do is your community want to serve your community get other people in your community. Maybe learn about a different faith group or denomination how they do vacation Bible school way that you family can create memories and circular idea. There is so much more. Yet another week. We like to do all of history. One thing we used to do it again, although this is something that cost money but to save money, we would camp and I will get all my credit camping stores but really have a lot of money are not that expensive and I mean sometimes it is less than $15 to put into an open you'll find a place to have a shower in the bathroom when our kids were available or not anymore. I used to love to gain Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and I would encourage everybody to go there at least one but we would do this week of 4 July because that was the week where the battle actually took place celebrating the countries birthday just happened that's when when it all took place when the troops from the South were actually going somewhere else. I did not Gettysburg audit of front about scouts from work. So ultimately ended up fighting there but we used to love this. We would go get his word. There are battlefield in that area cottage where you can all ask about and so I would probably not be a good night. I was the realm of our mouth, but in that what was needed about why what go there. They reenact the battles so our kids could go more history into the battles with the coolest things around town. They would actually Like the soldiers would answer like you know my daughter home and wants to be a position way she looked forward to every year there was the battlefield surgeon and he would have a surgeon's tent set up and he would show the tools you're the surgeon's use at that time Christian love.

They had no surveyors that would plot out different things or make maps of where they were going to battle with the reenactors for the Revolutionary war all over the country. I don't want in Ohio or something called new Boston and it was a battle from the revolutionary where I live here, the Mount Daniel Boone. It was a famous character and a real part of history work.
