Christmas Gifts Which Make a Difference - Grandparenting with a Purpose, Effective Ways to Pray for Your Grandchildren

For the past ten days I have been sharing with you about books/ resources written/ designed by some of the Grandmas with Heart and have recommended adding them to your own intentional grandparenting "tool kit" as they will equip and encourage you to do what matters the most - hand down the faith. They also make excellent Christmas gifts which make a difference.

There truly are wonderful books/resources written by grandmas - we grandmas do have much to offer. Today I'm very happy to share with you another resource written by a grandma - Lillian Penner. Her book newly “Revised and Expanded”, Grandparenting with a Purpose will be available any day.

Lillian says; "It is estimated there are over 30 million Christian grandparents in the U.S. alone, with many more around the world. We have reached a time in history when grandparents must rise as one to cry to God and declare the gospel of Jesus Christ.  We are living in a crucial time in our world today, division, rages, hatred, and malicious languages are vulgar. If we do not find the determination to come together and confront the issues shattering our communities and cities, we will not find the peace and healing we urgently need.

One thing is crystal clear: politics will not heal us, and the government will not fix us. However, Grandparents can participate in a massive prayer movement for the rescue of our dear grandchildren and their parents. The “Revised and Expanded” Grandparenting with a Purpose, Effective Ways to Pray for Your Grandchildren is designed to encourage and equip grandparents to intentionally pray for their grandchildren and their parents.

I am grateful many of you have previously purchased the original Grandparenting with a Purpose, Effective Ways to Pray for Your Grandchildren.  Since I have had many requests for a study guide to go with the chapters.  I have expanded the book with additional chapters and a study guide for each chapter, which you will find useful.

•    I have found there are many hurting estranged grandparents today with heavy hearts, so I am addressing this issue in a chapter. Is your grandparenting painful or a blessing?
•    I include a section looking at a view of the culture our grandchildren and their parents are navigating today. 
•    God’s Design for grandparenting plus several additional chapters and Scriptures to Pray for Teens and Grandparents to pray for themselves."

Check Lillian's book out - it is an excellent tool for your intentional grandparenting "tool kit" and makes a wonderful gift for the people you love this Christmas. Lillian, along with Sherry Schumann, is the National Prayer Co-director for th eChristian Grandparenting Network.
