Josh McDowell's 7 Principles - #1 Affirmation

Almost two years ago at the first-ever Legacy Coalition Grandparenting Summit, Josh McDowell spoke about how to build a relationship with our grandchildren. He shared seven principles for doing this, so each day for the coming seven days, we will share one of Josh's principles with you. 

Today the principle is Affirmation . . . Romans 12:15 - we need to authentically, "rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn"; and certainly we want to do this with our grandchildren. We need to share our grandchildren's sorrow at the moment; do not try to dismiss it or immediately make it "go away". Affirm how they feel when they rejoice and when they mourn. Identify with your grandchildren and affirm their emotions; this is the first principle in Josh McDowell's Seven Principles for Building Relationships with our Grandchildren. (Please share this series with the grandmas - and grandpas/parents - you know!)
