We Are Able to Point Them

As our grandchildren head back to school in the coming weeks, we know there will be many voices pulling them in different directions. Some will be solid directions built upon the truth of God's Word. Some will not. While we could look at those other directions and feel concerned, or even afraid, we do not need to. God has given us a sound instructions and a solid promise in His Word . . . 

There is Just One Version of Your Grandchildren

Take a moment, right now, to think about each of your grandchildren. Think about how they may be similar to one another. Think about the ways in which they are unique. I wrote yesterday about how each of the people in your life are there for a purpose - they are Divine Appointments. Today I want to write about how these "Divine Appointments" are unique, special, incredible creations of God - He, "made one version" of them. Just as God has a purpose for you; He has a purpose for each of them.

They are Divine Appointments

Sons, daughters, (in-laws) and grandchildren are all gifts from the hand of God. He blesses our lives with them to give us joy and for us to make a difference in their lives as well. But, He does not "distribute" these people into our lives haphazardly. No, not at all. God gives us specific sons, daughters, (in-laws) and grandchildren. Each one is, as Wess Stafford said; "a Divine appointment". 

Take some time today to consider the purpose these gifts from God, these, "Divine appointments" bring to your life . . . 

Equip Your Grandchildren for the New School Year with God's Love, Joy & Peace

My grandsons will be heading back to school in just three weeks, so to help them focus and prepare in these final three weeks, we are going to focus upon and pray one of our blessings . . .

Learn From Your Grandchildren

This quote is true as we absolutely learn how much patience we have when we spend time with children! Take time today to show your patience by connecting with your grandchildren - in person or through tech - and build your  relationship by . . .

Pray, Speak the Truth & Show Compassion

It only takes a couple minutes of listening to the evening news to know the world in which our loved grandchildren are growing up is significantly different than it was when we were growing up. Those minutes of the evening news give us an idea of what it may have been like for Noah in the world in which he lived.

I know someone who just learned a friend of their young First Grade grandson is not really a boy. This child is a girl who wants to be called he, him, boy and by the name of a boy; even though the child is a girl. This never happened when we were in First Grade - or any grade. How does my friend help her grandson understand the truth when around him the majority of the day for the majority of the week for the majority of the time for the next, who knows how many years the adults around him - at least some of them at school - are going to refer to his friend as a boy?

Prayer from Psalms 25 for Back-to-School

When our grandchildren/ children go to school, they will learn many things - some things will be true, some will only be "packaged" as truth. It is essential for us to be the main voices in the lives of the children we love who teach them the truth, so they know Who it is Who will really show them the paths upon which they should travel. 

I love the "back-to-school" verses for today, Psalm 25:4,5 and will be praying them for my grandsons as they return to school and learn . . .

Stumbles in Their Walk with God

I remember when my own children and grandchildren learned to walk. They held on to furniture, the window sill and to us as they learned to get their sense of balance. It didn't take long before they were not just walking, but were running all over our house!

Family

Family. What is a family? The On-Line Dictionary defines family as, "a. A fundamental social group in society typically consisting of one or two parents and their children.   b. Two or more people who share goals and values, have long-term commitments to one another, and reside usually in the same dwelling place."

I like this definition. "Two or more people who have long-term commitments to one another." Who on earth would we be more committed to, "long term" than our family? When God created people He created them to live in a family. Both the Old and New Testament speak to the importance God places on the family. God wants families to grow together to know and serve Him. Sometimes families do a great job of this and other times families struggle with their relationships, but this "long-term commitment" is part of what keeps families together!

Prayer for Our Grandchildren to Become Confessing Christians

LORD Jesus,

We pray our grandchildren will become confessing Christians. Let them, “believe You are the Christ, the Son of God” (John 11:27), who came into the world to save sinners. Let them, acknowledge they, “have gone astray and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:26). Let them repent of their sins and return to You. Please wash them in Your blood, clothe them in Your righteousness and anoint them with Your Holy Spirit.

Be the "Link" and "Span" the Gap

Do you have a grown child and/or grandchild who is not walking with God? Do you wonder if they will ever return to the faith they once had? Or, do you look at the world around the ones you love who are walking with God and fear for what the future holds for them; there are so many things which have the potential to side-track and/or derail their faith. Do you wonder if there is anything you are able to do to make a difference in their lives to help them return to a walk with God or hold fast to their walk?

Back-to-School Prayer - Depend Upon & Trust God

As our grandchildren go though the coming year of school, they are likely to have times where they experience success and times where they do not. If they are able to learn to depend upon and trust God in the positive as well as the challenging times, they will be ready to face whatever the new school year brings . . . and whatever life brings as they learn to make depending upon and trusting God part of the way they face each day of their life. 

As the new school year begins, consider making Isaiah 26 part of your prayer for your grandchildren . . .

You are Able to Play a Profound and Contemporary Role as Grandparent

You may be a grandparent like my husband; he is a tech poppa. He knows pretty much everything there is to know about pretty much every type of tech and is able to have those "techie" conversations with our grandsons. Or, you may be a grandparent like me - I am baffled by most tech. If there are more than two steps, I get "lost" and even my five-year-old grandson knows more tech than do I. When I have tech questions - which is often, I am able to ask my grandsons for help; which they happily give to me.

Back-to-School Prayer - Pray Our Grandchildren Will Love God & Others With Their All

We certainly want our grandchildren to make the choice to love God and others with their all, as we know this choice will not only help them avoid many of the pitfalls in life, but will help them stand firm as they follow God. The best way for them to learn to do this is for us to model what it looks like to love God and others with our all. When our grandchildren see us doing this, they will know how to do the same.

And, one way for us to do this is by showing them how they are able to pray and take Mark 12:30, 31 to heart; especially as they return to school . . .

Opportunities for Their Capacities to be Stretched

The new school year is just a few weeks away for my grandsons; the summer seems like it has just flown by for sure! As my grandsons look forward to the start of school, we are talking about how they are able to know God better by being people who talk with Him each day.

I know this new year holds stress for my grandsons - especially as one will be going to a new school for 6th grade where he does not yet know anyone. All three of them will have times of joy and times where they may feel sad or discouraged or confused or stressed. But, as Chuck Swindoll said; "Alleged impossibilities are opportunities for our capacities to be stretched." In the last weeks leading to the start of school, we are talking about how God is always with my grandsons and they are able to trust and talk with Him; in the blessings and stresses, no matter what.

Back-to-School Prayer - Jesus is Still "Writing the Books"

Have you noticed when you read through the Gospels over and over again it tells us how Jesus showed His great love and faithfulness to the large crowds who came to Him by healing them all. Not just one or two people, but Jesus healed them all!

Then, one of my favorite verses in the Bible - look at John 21:25 . . . 
Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.
Yes, we have record of Jesus healing the woman who had been ill for years, Jairus' daughter, Bartimaeus, the ten lepers and many others, but they are not the only ones who experienced Jesus' great love and faithfulness. When He walked the Earth Jesus healed everyone who came to Him and He continues to show His great love and faithfulness to us and the ones we love today as well!

Make time to talk with your grandchildren and tell them how Jesus shows His great love and faithfulness to you; help them learn to watch for how He does this for them as well. He is still "writing the books" and some of them are about you and your grandchildren!

So, as you think about your grandchildren today, be sure to thank God for His great love and faithfulness . . .

Hand Down the Faith with Mystery Bags - God's "Explosive" Joy

My grandsons have been at my house for the past four days for our yearly, "Days of Fun". Yesterday we did, "Will it Explode/Make a Mess" and the boys tried the Diet Coke/Mentos experiment, Elephant Toothpaste experiment and the exploding Watermelon (using rubberbands) experiment, and yes, a mess was made in all three experiments!

We are talking about how these experiments remind us of how when we make the choice to love, know and walk with God, our lives will have many surprises and His joy will flow - or explode - out of us!

If you would like to try any of these experiments with your grandchildren, you will need the following supplies . . .

Create, Hand Down and Remember Those Valuable Memories

I use facebook for two reasons. The first is it is a great way for me to stay in touch with family and friends who are all over the country. Last year, at this very time, my sister-in-law was fleeing the Carr Fire and we knew about it right away because of facebook. We were able to stay in touch and know what was happening with our California family and friends through facebook. 

The other reason is because each and every morning it shows me the, "memories" posts for the things I posted on this day throughout the years before. I love reading about the cute things my grandsons said and did and the things they said last year and years before. It is a blessing to be reminded of the memories with them and with other family and friends as well.

Back-to-School Prayer - Be Sure Your Grandchildren Know They Are Loveable

I (Lynda) am very intentional when it comes to being sure my grandchildren KNOW I love them. We talk about it. We show it with our actions. I email and snail-mail them notes where I always say I love them. We even sing about it! I pay attention to the things in which they are interested and listen when they have something they want to tell me. I make sure the boys know I love them.

Children need to know they are loved, unconditionally and forever by their grandma (and grandpa/parents, too) - and they need to know God loves them with an even bigger love!

My grandsons are blessed; they have parents, grandparents and great grandparents who love them. I make it a point of prayer to pray for them to also have friends who love God and who will be a positive influence in their lives - and in whose lives my grandsons are able to be a positive influence as well. Consider making this your prayer as your grandchildren return to school . . .

More Depends On Our Walk

You may be a grandma (or grandpa/ parent) who knows how to hand down the faith; one who enjoys doing so and knows how to plan those intentional opportunities to help the children you love learn to love, know and walk with God as well as watch for those unplanned opportunities to do so. Or, you may be a grandma (or grandpa/parent) who struggles with handing down the faith; one who is uncertain how to plan intentional opportunities or watch for those unplanned ones. Either way, there is one thing which matters for both of you . . . your own walk with God.

Back-to-School Prayer - God Comes Near When We Pray

There are two things we need to put at the top of our "to-do list" . . . the first is for us to be grandmas (and grandpas /parents) who pray faithfully for the children we love. The other is for us to help them learn to be people who pray. 

We are not able to be with our grandchildren at all times, but God is. As our grandchildren head back to school; they are able to know for sure, God is with them. In the times when things are going well and they are happy; our grandchildren are able to know for sure, God is with them. In the times when they feel alone, or sad, confused or even angry; our grandchildren are able to know for sure God is with them.

We want our grandchildren to know God has promised to never leave them; which means He is always with them, but we also want them to know they are able to experience this closeness with God especially when they pray. So, while we certainly pray faithfully for them, we want them learn to be people who pray as well. Consider making this your prayer for your grandchildren today . . .

Your Grandma Power

I originally wrote this post last year, and it has been my most read post. But, since many of you were not yet reading Grandmas with Heart when I posted this, I decided to share it again with you today.

Recently during my grandsons' weekly sleepover I made cookies. My youngest grandson "sneaked" a fresh baked cookie and said; "Your 'grandma power' is making cookies!"

I'm glad he approved of the cookies and I'm happy to have the "power" to make tasty cookies, but my greatest "grandma power" is found when I pray for my grandsons. I know there is much I am not able to do, but God is able and willing to do everything, so my real "grandma power" is for me to pray.

Back-to-School Prayer - Lamentations 3:21-23 - God's Great Faithfulness

Faithfulness. God's faithfulness is great and this truth is one to which we are able to hold firmly and one which we are able to share with our grandchildren with great confidence. As they start a new school year, whether it be due to them heading off to Kindergarten, or to a new school or to college in a different state, God is faithful, His love never ends, His mercies never stop and these absolute truths give us a solid hope. 

As we think about Scriptures which we are able to pray for our grandchildren heading to school, Lamentations 3:21-23 are definitely such verses . . .

We Have a Higher Calling

I am sure we all want to be "good" grandparents who do an excellent job of "being grandparents" and who enjoy our grandchildren. But, as Cavin Harper so wisely says; "While enjoying them is important, courageous grandparents know about a higher calling of spending themselves so another generation will know, love and serve Christ with their whole being."

We have a calling, a higher calling from God, to hand down the faith to our grandchildren; we are not called to play with them, go places with them, even just spend time with them, etc. We are called to hand down the faith and this is the most important thing we will ever do with them. It is our Higher Calling.

Prayer For Our Grandchildren's Walk With God

Father God,

Today, we pray about our grandchildren’s walk with You. Please plant their feet firmly on the path of life. “Direct (their) footsteps according to Your word; let no sin rule over (them)” (Psalm 119:133). 

Let them walk with You as Noah did, blameless and with singleness of heart. Teach them Your way, so they may walk in Your truth; unite their hearts to fear Your name. (Psalm 86:11, ESV, paraphrased).

A Prayer/Blessing for You & Your Grandchildren as the New School Year Begins

A few days ago I posted a prayer/
blessing to encourage your grandchildren with the truth about how God always does what He says He will do, so as they return to school - or whatever new thing the year holds for them - they are absolutely able to trust Him. (You will find the full post at this link.) 

I took the prayer/blessing and made it into a card you are able to download and print, then add a note of your own and mail to your grandchildren for them to keep by their bed, in their locker, in their backpack/purse or wherever they will see it to remind them you are praying for them and they are able to talk with God as well.

Remember - They Are Watching

I've been blessed to enjoy a busy and wonderful summer with sweet, rascal boys . . . typically at least two days a week while both their parents were at work plus either a Friday or Saturday night at our house on sleepovers. Next week we are having our Four Days of Fun - complete with Water Wars (water balloons, water guns, water balloon pinata - people will be wet!). tie dye day, a day for explosions (science projects which make a big mess - outside projects!) and a day to have fun at a splash pad and a fun event at church.  We will have so much fun!

We have had, and will be having, a lot of fun this summer, but mixed in with all this fun, I've noticed something which has reminded me of something important. First, what I have noticed . . .

Stand in the Gap and Pray - Do not Give Up

Our Grandma with Heart, Sherry Schumann is absolutely correct - our grandchildren need us to stand in the gap for them as their intercessors. This is one of the most important things we will ever do for them - and is something we need to do every day throughout our life.

No matter how well our grandchildren may walk with God, we are more aware of the spiritual battle before them and around them and prayer is the thing which will make a difference in their lives. So, if you are a grandparent who is a prayer warrior, continue to stand in the gap and pray. Do not give up. If you are a grandparent who is new at praying, or who struggles with praying consistently, stand in the gap and pray. Do not give up.

Back-to-School Handprint Prayers

The new school year will be beginning in the coming month, so today I'm happy to share with you an idea to help you both encourage your grandchildren (of any age and in any location) and hand down a heritage of faith to them as well. Now, I know I shared this idea before, but with the start of school, if you did not try this idea in the past, now is the perfect time to do so.

We know God hears, listens to, and answers our prayers - praying is the most powerful thing we are able to do for our loved grandchildren, so, this idea which I found on  Pinterest  is a great way to help us focus upon praying intentionally over the coming school year.

What is "Faithful"?

God is faithful. We know this. We tell our grandchildren God is faithful, but do they understand what this means? Do we? Dictionary.com defines "faithful" as . . . 

Traditions

Next week is going to be a busy one for us - Monday through Wednesday we are having our "Three Days of Fun". Each Summer my husband takes off three days from work and we spend those days with our grandsons having fun. The boys look forward each Summer to our, "days of fun" - they get to help decide what we will do each year. Top of their list this Summer is for them to make more tie-dye shirts. We will also spend some time with science projects and learning about what it means to know God is faithful - how He always does what He says He will do, so with the start of school just a few weeks away (and our oldest grandson is going to a new school this Fall where he may not know anyone - a big thing for him for sure), they are able to trust God to be with them and to care about what the new school year holds for them.

Traditions, like our "days of fun", are an important part of growing up for children. Like our Grandma with Heart, Cathy Jacobs, says; "Regular and unique customs provide a beautiful backdrop of stability which enhances their outlook and appreciation of life. Our consistency sends a message which says three very important things: You are loved, valued and special."

Attitude - Hand Out Crayons!

In a month and a half, or so, many of our grandchildren will begin a new school year - whether it is for the first time in Kindergarten or another year in a familiar school, whether they enter High School or begin their studies in college or perhaps begin a year of school in a new town or school, their attitude truly does makes a huge difference. Take time to talk with them - in person, through email, over the phone or maybe through facetime - about how the way they see and respond to the things going on around them, the attitude they show, will impact the other students and their relationship with their teachers. Plus, most importantly, their attitude provides the opportunity for them to show others they love and follow Jesus.

God Sightings

In our day-in-day-out lives do we live in . . . or even tend to notice, the mystery and wonder of God? Or do we tend to be so busy with "life", we do not stop and notice what truly matters the most?

I love this quote from one of our Grandmas with Heart, Joani Schultz. She is correct. We need to, "Live in the mystery and wonder of God. Watch for - and talk about - God's reality, presence and action in our lives today." I love how Joanie, and her team at Group Publishing, calls this, "God Sightings".

Hand Down the Faith with Mystery Bags - Release, Pray & Watch What God Does

Do you have a grandchild who is apprehensive about returning to school? Or a grandchild who is afraid of something? Or a grandchild who has a burden on their heart? Or would you like an idea for how you may involve your grandchildren in an activity which will help them remember how they are able to tell God about anything which is on their heart? If so, check out this simple, fun and memorable idea to help you hand down the faith.

I really like using activities with my grandsons like the one I'm about to share with you, because they remember the project AND the point which goes with it, so to me, it seems like a "no-brainer" to use science projects with them whenever possible!

"Touch the Keys", "Show Your Joy & Shine"

We all have days in our lives where we experience blessings; days which bring us joy and days which we would happily re-live. Likewise; we all have days in our lives which are difficult, challenging and even unpleasant. Days we never want to re-live. Days which are not able to end fast enough. This is true for the ones we love as well.

As Barbara Johnson says; "Life is a refining process. Our response to it determines if we will be ground down or polished up. On a piano one person plays sonatas, while another just bangs away at 'Chopsticks'. The piano is not responsible: it is how you touch the keys which makes the difference. It is how you play what life gives you which determines your joy and shine!" Show your, "joy and shine" to your family. Make sure they hear, "sonatas" as you, "touch the keys" in your life and respond to the blessings as well as the challenges in your life.

A Resource to Equip, Empower & Encourage as You Hand Down the Faith

Some of you may be familiar with Cavin Harper; some may not. Cavin is the founder of the Christian Grandparenting Network. He was talking about being an intentional Christian grandparent, long before it became "popular" to do so. If you have never checked out the website for the Christian Grandparenting Network, please do - you will find it at this link.

God Always Does What He Says He Will Do

One more month. At this grandma's house we have one more month of Summer vacation and then the new school year begins. We are planning to get the most out of this month as we spend time together building memories and talking about trusting God as the new school year begins.

I have a grandson who will be in First Grade, a grandson moving into Third Grade and a grandson entering his first year in a new school - Sixth Grade. It will be a big year for sure and I want my grandsons to know God is with them, they are absolutely able to trust Him and He has plans for them.

Look at this wonderful verse and promise in Isaiah 25:1 -

The Pathway to the Life You Really Want to Live

Messages from the TV, advertising, movies, tech world and sometimes even family and friends often communicate to our grandchildren the way to get what they really want, the way to live life as they want it, is for them to do what they want and to put themselves first.

This, however; is not true.

We know the pathway to the life the ones we love really want to live is by loving, knowing and walking with God; by living in obedience to Him.

Encourage Your Grandchildren With - Well Done! I'm Proud of the Work You Did!

There are many things grandparents are particularly accomplished at doing when it comes to grandchildren - one is certainly being the, "biggest cheerleaders" for their grandchildren. Yes, we tend to be people who encourage our grandchildren and help to build their self-esteem.

Our grandchildren, whether they comment on this or not, remember the encouragement offered by grandparents, which means encouraging our grandchildren needs to be at the top of our "to-do list" as grandparents as the words we use to encourage are likely to be remembered.

Prayer for Grandparents Around the World

Abba Father,
We pray on behalf of our fellow grandparents, who live throughout the world. We realize we are as different and diverse as the miles, which separate us.
We pray for the grandparents who grieve over the birth of a new grandchild, because its means there is another mouth to feed.
We pray for the grandparents who are watching their grandchildren grow up in refugee camps.

Model Living Life with God's Perspective Guiding Us

For the past week, to help you see a bit of the heart of our Grandmas with Heart, I have been sharing quotes from each of them; Linda Ranson Jacobs, Sherry Schumann, Cathy Jacobs, Debbie Guinn, Joani Schultz, Nohemi Murray, Deb Del Villar and today I'm sharing one from me, Lynda Freeman.

The ones we love are growing up in a world where they may be taught it is perfectly fine to believe whatever they want to believe. They hear and see others tell them their opinions are just as correct as the opinions of anyone else - unless their opinions tend to lean towards a more conservative or Biblical viewpoint. It is a confusing world in which our grandchildren/children are growing up for sure.

Grandparents are "Thick Bark" - We Have a Purpose

Yesterday I posted about how the trees which burned in the Carr Fire survived; some had thick bark which protected them, others needed the fire to cause the seeds to grow and still others had roots which were protected underground and once the fire was extinguished, new trees sprouted from these roots. I wrote about the parallels to our lives and walk with God; "But God knew what He was doing when He created us, too. He put us in families. God planned for families to be the primary method through which faith is handed down to children. God planned for grandparents to have purpose and gave us the job - and great joy - of handing down faith on purpose to our grandchildren.

The "Green" Will Return - God Will Bring them Back!

This past July 23rd a truck pulling a trailer West on Highway 299 between Redding, California and the California Coast ended up with a flat tire. This may not seem like a big deal, just a normal happening, but when the rim of the tire scraped on the road, sparks were thrown into the dry grass along the side of the road resulting in the Carr Fire. This monster fire ended up burning just under 230,000 acres, took more than a month to extinguish and is considered to be the sixth most destructive fire in the recorded history of California, as seven people lost their lives and it destroyed just over 1600 structures. 

Attitudes Matter

As grandmas - and grandpas /parents, too - we know teaching the children we love is an important part of our job as grandparent and parent. We teach them many things . . . how to walk, talk, eat, the all-important-potty-training, how to get along, share, read, write, math, and the list goes on and on.

If we are intentional Christian grandparents/parents, we are purposeful about teaching the children we love about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, using our gifts/talents to serve God and others and why we go to church. These are all important things for us to teach and we do this teaching during planned times as well as by taking opportunity of unplanned times as well.

Remembering is Important

I (Lynda), like most people, have family and friends across the country, so I use facebook. I have found it is a great way to stay in touch, but the thing I like most about it is a special feature called, "On this Day". I love this because each morning it brings up things I posted, "On this Day" in previous years. Since I tend to be intentional about writing the things my grandsons say and do, and time spent with family, I find these daily posts to be a wonderful way to remember - and they bring great joy to me on a daily basis.

Remembering is important, but we people often are forgetful. We see this was the case back in Bible times as in the Book of Judges we read how over and over again God's people did not remember all He did for them, did not tell the new generations and then they fell into sin. Other countries attacked them, so the people called out to God for help. Now, you might think He probably just told them to deal with it on their own, since they forgot Him, but God always showed grace and helped them. This resulted in the people turning back to God; until the next generation forgot and this happened again and again.

On Those Perfect Days

I absolutely agree with our Grandma with Heart Nohemi Murray - a perfect day is when I'm surrounded by my kids and grandkids; and I am sure you agree as well.

Our families are gifts from God - He put us together as family for a reason; and part of the reason He gave you the children/grandchildren you have is so you will hand down the faith to them. This is our highest calling; a God-given job and gift which brings the fullest joy.

Take time today to thank God for the gift of your family. Consider making it part of your prayer each day to ask God to keep your eyes open for the following . . .

Hand Down the Faith with Mystery Bags - Simple, Fun, Memorable

When it comes to being intentional about handing down faith to our grandchildren, we may feel intimidated. It is, after all, the most important thing we will ever do. But, while it is essential, it is not difficult; and most certainly something we should not fear. It is actually able to be rather simple.

Take for example, something I did with my grandsons. Yes, they are young – ten, seven and five, but this particular activity is one most any age of grandchild could do, understand and, most importantly, remember. You will need . . . 

Four Things to Keep In Mind

This truth is one which should give us the most hope and joy - God hears, listens to, answers and changes lives by our prayers! There are many things we are able to do as grandmas - and grandpas /parents - for the children we love, but there are also many things we are not able to do. However; God is able and willing to do anything!
