"Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,
and shout for joy, all you upright in heart"
"For we are his workmanship, created in
Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared
beforehand, that we should walk in them"
“Keep steady my steps according to you promise”
The Grand Expedition
Join us as we embark on a prayer expedition that has been designed to strengthen our prayer lives, so we can successfully battle for the hearts, minds and souls of our children and grandchildren. During this expedition, we will enjoy rich narratives at selected destination points in Luke’s gospel. We will sift through stories from Jesus’ ministry, all the while being led along dirt roads, under olive groves, through the Temple gates and into our own hearts. We will uncover biblical truths for unleashing the power of prayer and garner applicable tools for stepping-up our prayer lives. We will encounter present-day grandparents whose faith stories inspire even the most cynical among us to believe miracles still happen.
Sherry Schumann has the privilege and joy of equipping grandparents to leave a legacy of faith in Jesus to future generations. In addition to being an author and speaker, she serves as the president of Christian Grandparenting Network. She and her husband, Sammy, give thanks for their three sons and their wives, plus seven adorable grandchildren.

Heavenly Father, We pray our grandchildren develop a passion for learning which extends beyond the classroom. Let the wonder of Your creation be their learning lab. May they observe a sunrise and realize Your mercies “are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:23). May...
Abba Father, We pray our grandchildren learn to "love their enemies and pray for those who persecute them" (Matthew 5:44, paraphrased). Please give them the strength to put “all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander away from them, along with...
