True Love is Spelled G-I-V-E

As grandmas (and grandpas/ parents, too) we love the children God has entrusted to us. We love them with all our heart. We know this love is spelled, G-I-V-E and we show it by the ways we "give" to them . . .
  • We give them our time - in person, through tech, and however we are able to do so.
  • We give them our faith - by modeling it in the way we live, by the words we say as we hand down the faith.
  • We give them our prayers - we pray for them throughout the day and when we wake in the night. We pray for their requests and we pray for them as God puts on our heart.
  • We give them our attention - we listen to them when they are talking to us to show they matter and we care about them.
  • We give them our presence - by spending as much time with them as possible - similar to giving them our time, but different in how we are careful to be present with them.
These are just a few ways we show our love for them by the way we give to them. Commit to show your love by the way you do exactly this.
