So, how are we able to, "inspire your child (grandchild) at every age toward their best effort"? Consider the following ideas . . .
- Encourage them to give their best effort at everything they do . . . from picking up their toys to their homework at school.
- Involve them in projects to serve others and celebrate as they show tender hearts, concern for others and a servant's heart.
- Model what it looks like to give your best effort at everything you do as a grandma (or grandpa/parent) and how giving your best is not something you do only as a child.
- Surround them with people who give their best effort - invite people to your home to share how they give their best . . . such as missionaries, church staff, teachers, etc. and have a meal together. Start conversations with them about how they were called to do what they are doing and why it matters for them to give their best effort at all they do. Encourage your grandchildren/children to ask questions as well.
