So often we grandparents say we do not know how to hand down confident faith. We are told there are few resources out there to help us, but I am so happy to be able to tell you there are more truly excellent books/ resources than you may know which you could get to add to your own intentional grandparenting/ parenting "tool box". These books and resources will absolutely equip you to be able to hand down confident faith. Many of these excellent books and resources are written/developed by our Grandmas with Heart and make wonderful gifts for you to give to your spouse, grown children, friends, family - anyone on your gift list who wants to know how to hand down confident faith.For the past few days I've been sharing with you about these excellent books/resources and suggesting them for you to consider as Christmas Gifts Which Make a Difference. Today I'm happy to let you know about another book - The DNA of Grandparents & Parents Who Hand Down the Faith. In this book I look at how just as our physical DNA provides the code for how our bodies develop, live and reproduce, our "Faith and Prayer DNA" give us the code or instructions which help us learn to develop a strong walk of faith, live as people who believe and reproduce by handing down to our children and our children's children a strong and healthy walk of faith.
The DNA of Grandparents & Parents Who Hand Down the Faith will introduce you to people from the Bible - including Hannah, David, Jeremiah, Elisha, Jesus, Job, Joseph, the Kings of Judah, the Prodigal Son's Father and our own Heavenly Father, people from time - such as George Muller, Billy Graham, Fanny & Eunice Crosby, Elisabeth Elliot, Joni, Corrie Ten Boom, Martin & Katherine Luther, Charles Spurgeon and Dwight L. Moody and people from today - including my friends Teresa Holmgren who shared how God answered her prayers for a child and then for a grandchild, Brad Burkhead who shared what it is like when your grown children and grandchildren move to Africa to be missionaries, my friend Ragaee Daniel shared how God saved him from an Egyptian prison, and my friend Janae Dean shared the powerful account of how God gave life back to her son when he was dead; all these accounts show us what it looked like for them to develop this strong and healthy "Faith and Prayer DNA".
"I'm excited about your book and the help you're wanting to give to parents and g-parents. I hope your book gets into the hands of tons of people."
"I love the idea of passing on spirituality like DNA. It means we must have it first and then transmit it to future generations. This book will stimulate the thinking of many parents and grandparents!"
