Having Fun and Handing Down Confident Faith!

I appreciate this quote from Ken Canfield - "Relating to our grandkids is fun and rewarding, but we should also have higher goals and deeper significance in mind, and it should show up in our day-to-day interactions with them." It is a great reminder of while it is wonderful for us to do fun things with our grandchildren, our focus should be on handing down confident faith.

Now, having said this, having fun together is an excellent way for us to also hand down confident faith! When we have our grandchildren help us make a tasty treat and then share with a neighbor, we are having fun and handing down confident faith! When we work on a science project together and talk about how it helps us know or remember something about God, we are having fun and handing down confident faith! When we sing about God together while going about our activities, we are having fun and handing down confident faith! When we learn about a new, surprising animal and how it helps us believe in God, we are having fun and handing down confident faith! When we go somewhere special with them and build new memories, we are having fun and handing down confident faith!

So, have fun together. Build a strong relationship which they will remember long after you are gone, but keep the goal in mind - have fun and hand down confident faith!
