I have a wonderful relationship with my daughter, her husband, and their three children. My 13-year-old grandson and my 10-year-old granddaughter are now old enough to attend a Christian summer camp.
Because I prefer to use my money for good things, I eagerly offered to pay the cost of the camp for them. My daughter and son-in-law gladly accepted and made the necessary arrangements for my grandchildren to attend.
Like many Christian summer camps, this one helped them become more familiar with God’s Word through a bible study every morning. My grandchildren were taught how to have a better prayer life and to pray more often. They learned how to live with others, putting others’ needs above their own, and of course, they learned the basic skills that are a part of a camping experience — like how to roast marshmallows and not do stupid things!
Money well spent, I say!
Bill Navarre is the grandfather of 13 and lives in Clark Lake, Michigan.
