I'm very torn. One way we are able to support, encourage, and equip you is by sharing resources which will help you grow as a grandparent, and enable you to hand down confident faith. But, I don't want to feel like we are bothering you by "pushing" resources on you. So, when a new resource becomes available we will share it with you on this blog. Each month we will share our "book of the month". But, if you would like to know about additional resources and ways to utilize them effectively, please check out one of my other blogs - Books by Lynda - at this link. On this blog you will find posts devoted to resources which will help you hand down confident faith.
It absolutely matters for us to hand down confident faith - this quote from Henrietta Mears is true. The things the ones we love learn now, will impact what our churches look like tomorrow. George Barna's research shows us more and more of our teen and young adult grandchildren/children are walking away from church. Many of them are increasingly turning to atheism. We must equip them with the reasons why they are able to believe God is real and trust Him with confidence today, while they are young. Resources like the "Life on the Goldilock's Planet" curriculum/book series and "The DNA of Grandparents, and Parents, Who Hand Down the Faith" are tools which equip us to hand down confident faith.
As grandmas (and grandpas/parents, too) we have the ability to influence the children God has entrusted to us. We are able to help them develop, and hold tightly to, a confident faith - these things matter today, and for the future as well, so find resources which equip and help you to do what matters - hand down confident faith.#grandmas #handingdownaconfidentfaith #itmatterswhatwedo #grandparentingonpurpose
