If you live near your grandchildren, clearly this is easier for you to do; but even if you live far from your grandchildren, you are still able to connect with them on a regular basis and be involved in their lives. Consider some of the following ideas - whether you live near or far . . .
- Snail mail notes to your grandchildren - use the free notes we made for you . . . you will find them at this link.
- Facetime to visit and for specific reasons; such as to read the Bible and pray together or to talk about surprise packages you send with "Mystery Bags" - try the idea in this post.
- When you are able to connect in person, do so! And, while you want to have fun in these times, be sure to also plan to hand down the faith - give a blessing, talk about how God is answering your prayers, ask how God is answering their prayers, etc.
Whether you live near or far, be involved in your grandchildren's lives today. This "involvement" is how they will build the memories of you and of the things you said and did to hand down the faith. Be involved - it matters.
