COLORADO SPRINGS, Dec. 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- It's that time of year. A time for gathering together 'round hearth and home, sharing old family tales while visions of mashed potatoes and gravy dance in our heads; for baking gingerbread cookies with Grandma, and thrilling to Grandpa's voice as he shares the story of Christ's birth. It's an opportunity to celebrate old family traditions, and forge new ones together.


In the spirit of the season, the Christian Grandparenting Network (CGN) is encouraging grandparents to become more involved in the lives of their grandchildren. By offering complimentary copies of its popular "Legacy Journal" to any grandparent willing to pledge to complete it with their grandchildren, CGN renews its commitment to helping grandparents pass along their traditions, values, and faith to their grandchildren.


"Grandparents are a precious, non-renewable family resource," says CGN founder, the Rev. Cavin Harper. "They are the keepers of our stories, the wisest and most experienced members of society – those to whom we can look for guidance. Most grandparents are only too happy to share their invaluable, humorous insights about life...all the knowledge they have gleaned on the long road they've traveled toward spiritual maturity."


The perfect Christmas gift, each copy of the "Legacy Journal" is a handsomely bound, 40-page heirloom-quality keepsake that grandparents can complete for their grandchildren, or can make into a Christmas activity that families can do together. The "Legacy Journal" is designed to accommodate the sharing of family traditions, as well as foster the uncovering of fascinating family stories.


And for the active, outdoor enthusiast, give the gift of a Grand Camp adventure. It's summer camp, but better because you'll be doing all those treasured summertime activities – heavenly hikes, fabulous fishing, refreshing swims, wild and wonderful white water rafting, informative field trips, crackling campfires, yummy marshmallow roasts, silly sing-a-longs, and snug sleeps in an alpine cabin – with the people who mean everything to you.


"Grand Camps are about more than just enjoying the great outdoors," explains Reverend Harper. "It's a way to dispel the negative stereotype of grandparents as sedate, elderly couples who sit home watching reruns of old black and white movies. Grand Camps help to bring grandparents into the forefront of their families, where they ought to be, and inspire joyous summertime memories year round...ones that can unite generations together, and build meaningful and eternal family traditions."


To obtain a copy of the Legacy Journal or learn more about Grand Camps, go to www.christiangrandparenting.com, or call 719-522-1404. Supplies of the "Legacy Journal" are limited.
