"Psalm 9 contains a great 'I Will' activity list to remember when you spend time with your grandchild.
- First, start with an attitude of praise. Tell the Lord what you are thankful for. Count your blessings, name them. It will be easy to have a heart full of thankfulness after you've named even a few. Your heart will be full and running over with the kind of attitude that pleases God and spills over on the young ones with the love of the Savior.
- Second, tell the kids what God has done in the past. One of our greatest resources as grandmothers is the history we have lived. Everyday miracles fill our memory banks. Pull a few past marvels out of your memory treasure chest and tell your grandchild of the Lord's wonders.
- Third, be a happy grandmother. Open the door with a smile and a hug. Let your face show the gladness of the Lord. Your inside joy should envelop your grandchildren with every encounter, no matter where you are.
- The fourth 'I will" is my favorite: sing. Sing with your grandchildren. Leave a song in their hearts."
