Love Your Grandchildren!

My grandsons are blessed to be loved by parents, grandparents, great-grandma and extended family. They know they are dearly loved, but they still hear it, often! I also am intentional about letting them know God loves them even more than I do, because as they grow up I know life may be - and often times is - uncertain. No matter what happens I want them to know they are loved.

Send the Most Important Message to the Generations Who Follow

I don't know about you, but I am much more conscious of how there are more days behind me than there are before me. This saying rings true for me, and brings with it a challenge I intend to accept. My grown children and grandchildren are the living messages I send to a time I will not see. They are likely to outlive me, so the message I send with them must be the message which matters . . . God loves them, and the generations who follow.

Defend Your Faith Bible - the Apologetics Bible for Kids

I was recently sent the Defend Your Faith Bible - the Apologetics Bible for Kids to review for another blog I write, but I am so impressed with this Bible! I knew I had to let you know about it as well! If you are looking for a Bible to get for your grandchild/ child, absolutely take a close look at this one.

It is the Time for Us to Do What Matters

If we have grandchildren, then it is clear God wants us to hand down confident faith to them. We do not have to wonder about what God wants us to do; we are able to clearly know. So, this means there are many decisions in our lives which are very easy to make. If a decision before us would provide the opportunity for us to hand down confident faith, then we do it. See, easy!

Hand Down the Faith with Mystery Bags - Let's Have a Heart Hunt!

Valentine's Day is less than a month away, so if you are looking for a fun idea you could try with your grandchildren; consider holding a, “heart hunt”. What is a “heart hunt” you ask? Well . . . think Easter egg hunt, or like I wrote about last month, a Candy Cane hunt, but substitute small paper or foam hearts.

Share How Your Family History Shows God's Hand

Do you know your family history? Are there accounts of your ancestors which have been handed down from one generation to the next? Have you spent time researching your family genealogy? Are you able to see God's hand through your family's history?

Prayer for Eyes Which are Open

I know I shared these prayers with you last summer, but they are prayers I pray often for my grandsons, so I thought I'd share them again with you today.

Commit to, "Do the Will of God Come What May"

As we have said many times, the most important things we are ever able to do is to hand down confident faith to the children, grandchildren, and possibly even great-grandchildren with whom God blesses our lives. We most certainly want to see the ones we love make the choice to believe in Jesus - what else could possibly matter more?

Love & Serve Others

As Christian grandmas (or grandpas/parents) we need to think about how we live out our faith - especially if we have grown children/ grandchildren who are not currently walking with God. In this world in which we live, so many people who claim to be Christians do not live in a way which shows they follow what Jesus said - love God and others, serve others, put others first. So, as Christians, and as grandmas (grandpas/parents, too) we need to be certain we model what Jesus said and are willing to live a life where we show by what we do we truly love others.

Build a Strong, Loving & Close Relationship - It Matters

Building a strong, loving and close relationship with your grandchildren matters. It helps them as children so they grow with a sense of security and value and, as studies show, it helps them as adults, so they are healthier emotionally.
