We Are View-Givers

Today I want to write about something important. Handing down a confident heritage of faith to our grandchildren. Five years ago I heard Steve Bell (Willow Creek Church) say something which got my attention: "How we feel about our grandchildren is how they will feel about themselves."

Did this get your attention? It sure got my attention! Happily, my grandsons know I love them like crazy and absolutely believe they are gifts from the hand of God! Why do they know this? Because I've said this to them a time or two . . . or pretty much every time I see them!

My grandsons start the 2020/21 school year on Monday, so todayday when they are at my house we will talk about some important things - how I have been able to see them making wise choices over the summer and growing in their own walks with God, and specific things I'm praying about for them individually as they return to school.

Please know as grandmas we do make a huge impact upon our grandchildren. It does matter what we say and do around these sweet blessings from God - more than you may even know!

So, the next time you are with your grandchildren, share with them how you see them growing and take time to give them a view of themselves which will build them up and help them see themselves as God does - ever so very loved and cherished - it truly matters.
