Your Words are Powerful - Use Them to Pass on a Heritage of Faith

Image
A year ago I was invited to speak at a grandparenting conference in Minnesota - check this link to see what I had to say about how the way we see our grandchildren has a huge impact on the way they see themselves.

As grandparents we have the opportunity to impact our grandchildren in powerful ways - by the words we speak and the things we do. What do you do to pass on a heritage of faith to the children you love? Consider using Generations Quest to do exactly this - pass on a heritage of faith to the children you love! (Check it out at this link.)

Free For You . . . One Illustrate My Own Bible Heroes Book!

Image
As you have likely noticed, I LOVE books for children! I really LOVE Bible books which introduce children to people from the Bible, so when those people are some of the "unknown" heroes . . . well, I especially LOVE those books! 

While there are many books about Noah, Daniel and David, there are not many about lesser known Bible people, so, a few years ago, I sat down and wrote several Unknown Bible Hero books; but since I'm not really an illustrator, I thought it would be fun to write the books where children could illustrate their own books! This could be a fun project for you and your grandchildren/children to work on together over the summer - great rainy day project!

The Best Mother's Day Gift & Why I'm An Intentional Christian Grandma

Image
Today is Mother's Day and so I'm sharing with you a conversation I had with my five-year old grandson yesterday. He and his brothers spent Friday night here having their weekly sleep-over, but he woke up with a fever and headache. I told him I was praying for him and asking God to help him feel better. 

After a bit, he started to feel better. As I snuggled him, he, his brother and I talked about the Bible verses on our Generations Quest schedule for the day - Proverbs 3:5, 6 - which also happen to be our Scripture blessing verses. We talked about what it means to trust in God and I told the boys I prayed every day for them to love God with their all now and to grow to be men who will do the same through all their lives.

Caleb (five years old) told me; "Thank you grandma, for praying for me! I love God with my all and want to always love Him!"
This is the best Mother's Day gift ever - to have my grandsons love God and want to continue to love Him with their all! This…

Why Should I Invest in Generations Quest for My Family? Answer #4

For the past few days I've been sharing reasons to invest in Generations Quest for your family . . . because it will allow your family to all be on the same page when it comes to reading God's Word together, because helping the children we love become grounded in God's Word will help keep them from becoming derailed in a world which is running farther from God every day and because with Generations Quest being "too busy" is not an excuse for not reading God's Word, as it is designed to involve just reading a verse or two a day!

Today I want to share another reason to invest in Generations Quest . . . because it will help you to stay in touch with the children you love! I am using Generations Quest with my grandsons. I print out the monthly reading calendar for them to use at home, but they also wanted me to email them the daily passage and question, so each morning - first thing - I take a few minutes to email a simple note to my grandsons. This is the email I…
