We Are View-Givers

Today I want to write about something important. Handing down a heritage of faith to our grandchildren. Three years ago I heard Steve Bell (Willow Creek Church) say something which got my attention: "How we feel about our grandchildren is how they will feel about themselves."

Did this get your attention? It sure got my attention! Happily, my grandsons know I love them like crazy and absolutely believe they are gifts from the hand of God! Why do they know this? Because I've said this to them a time or two . . . or pretty much every time I see them!

My grandsons start the 2018/19 school year today, so yesterday when they were at my house we talked about some important things. I told each of them how I have been able to see them making wise choices over the summer and growing in their own walks with God. I shared with each of them the specific things I see them doing and their faces just lit up! I then shared with each of them the specific things I'm praying about for them individually as they return to school.

Please know as grandmas we do make a huge impact upon our grandchildren. It does matter what we say and do around these sweet blessings from God - more than you may even know!

So, the next time you are with your grandchildren, share with them how you see them growing and take time to give them a view of themselves which will build them up and help them see themselves as God does - ever so very loved and cherished - it truly matters.
