Things We Truly Never Tire Of & Truly Matter

Ten years ago today, I became a grandma for the first time! Those ten years have flown by for sure! In the years since I have been so blessed to get to know my grandson, and his brothers and am able to say this saying is absolutely true - I never get tired of watching them grow!

God Will Set You A-Praying

Don't you just love this saying from Matthew Henry! If you are a prayer warrior who has been praying for years, you have likely experienced this in your own life and have examples of how God has answered your prayers as part of your "Prayer History" which you are able to share with your grandchildren. If prayer is something you struggle with, then try the following to become a prayer warrior and build your own "Prayer History" . . .

Free Cards to Help You Stay in Touch

In this day of email, facetime and google connect, there is no shortage of ways to connect with our grandchildren. But, they still tend to love to receive snail mail which is actually for them. Yes, old-fashioned snail mail is a wonderful way to stay in touch with our grandchildren - no matter their age or where they live.

This is What it is All About

I am very blessed to have my grandsons over for a sleepover pretty much every Friday or Saturday. This past week they were here for a Saturday night sleepover and on this particular evening there was a bonfire at our house. The boys enjoyed roasting marshmallows and chatted with the people who were here. At one point they were talking about believing in Jesus and my grandsons said; "We believe in Jesus. Our grandma told us about Him and she never lies."

It IS Your Job to Trust & Believe God Will Do What He has Promised to Do

Last week I wrote about the things which are NOT our job as grandmas (grandpas and parents, too) and the things which ARE our job. Today I want to share one more thing with you which IS your job . . .  trusting and believing God will do what He has promised to do.

Time Spent on a Grandma's Laptop

A grandma and a laptop are able to make a significant and lasting impact in the lives of her grandchildren; whether they live near or far! Take time each week to email, stay in touch with, encourage, brighten their day and remind your grandchildren how much you love them. You are also able to share Bible verses and about how God is working in your life by emailing your grandchildren. If you have not used email yet, make it a point to do so this week!

Being Remembered for What Matters

When we invest our time and love in the children with whom God has blessed our lives, the impact on their lives is lasting. They will remember us and the important things we have taught them. 

While we want our grandchildren to remember us for the things we said and did and how we love them, the thing we want them to remember the most is what we had to say about God's faithfulness and love for them. When we hand down the faith, we leave a legacy which truly matters and has lasting value.
