We Are Interpreters

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 23, 2016

Tim Elmore rocked Radical Mentoring’s Mentor Summit 2016 with his insights into the millennial generation. I’ll never forget this one . . . “Parents have to be interpreters for their kids.” Boom! Interpreters take information from one context and turn it into usable, helpful information in another. Young people may be super-smart but they don’t…

Engaging Granddad, Part II

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 25, 2015

When a grandparent dies, there’s always this angst of “I wish I’d have asked them more questions.” There’s so much I wish I knew about where my parents came from, what they were like when they were younger, what was important to them at various times in their lives, where they were with God when…

Engaging Granddad, Part I

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 22, 2015

I’m always quoting John Maxwell as saying “Grandchildren are your reward for not killing your kids.” They are pretty special. But there’s responsibility along with that love and somebody has to be the first mover . . . someone has to initiate. If you’re Granddad, it’s on you first. If you’re the father, maybe these…

(Honoring your father and mother – Part II) Unless something big happens, you’ll father as you were fathered. They say we become who we are from our DNA, or experiences and the decisions we make. It works the same way with fathering. Unless we’re disrupted . . . unless we’re seriously scared by something bad…

Teenager Troubles

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 27, 2014

  The parental goal for the teenage years is to get them through it. Every now and then, we hear some amazing story of a teenager who’s public about their faith, helping others, and walking with God in an amazing way. More often, we hear about kids who are confused, conflicted, angry and withdrawn. In…

Raising Kids in the Faith

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 5, 2014

As I launched my new Radical Mentoring Group last week, I heard it again . . . “I want to raise good kids . . . kids that will believe in Jesus and follow Him.” There is no known formula. There’s no specific set of “do this” or “don’t do that” to insure Christ-following kids….
