How to Build Transformative Relationships

Legacy Grandparenting Summit 2016


In this 39-minute session, author and apologist Josh McDowell gives the seven "A"s of transformative relationships to teach grandparents how to relate to their grandchildren.

Josh McDowell is a Christian apologist, evangelist, and author. Of his numerous books, his best known titles are More Than A Carpenter, Evidence That Demands A Verdict, and Right from Wrong. In 1991, Josh founded Operation Carelift to meet the physical and spiritual needs he discovered in orphanages, hospitals, schools, and prisons in the countries of the former Soviet Union. Operation Carelift, which has grown into in one of the largest humanitarian aid organizations based in the United States, is now a part of Global Aid Network (GAiN USA).
