Our grandchildren definitely benefit from having grandmas - "experienced" moms - active in their lives, too! And, unlike with elephants, where they do not have the involvement of grandpas with the little ones, our grandchildren benefit greatly from the involvement of their grandpas as well!
We grandparents have a very important, and essential role to play with our grandchildren - a Biblical role to hand down a heritage of faith. Yes, we are able to provide physical help with grandchildren, which is valuable, but the spiritual help, spiritual involvement, and spiritual investment is priceless!
Of all the things you do with your grandchildren, which do you think is the most valuable use of your time? My husband and I pray Scripture each week for our grandsons - they pray with us on Saturdays (they usually have a sleepover on Friday) and give us prayer requests to pray for them in the coming week - which we talk about how God is answering our prayers on Saturdays, too. I love when they get to see/hear us pray Scripture for them - and get to pray with us! #grandmas #handingdownthefaith#itmatterswhatwedo #grandparentingonpurpose
