What Do You Want Your Grandchildren to Know?

Image
Today is June 1st and it is the day those of us using Generations Quest to be intentional about passing on faith to our grandchildren will begin a study in the life of King Josiah and learn about what it means to love God's Word. It will be a great month of learning and important faith conversations for sure!

If you have not made the decision yet to use Generations Quest with your family, consider the following . . . 

Grandparents Do Matter!

Typically a couple times a week (but nearly always at least once a week) a wonderful person who is part of the Legacy Coalition makes and posts a photo gif to the blog. I personally have several which are my favorites, but I especially love the one he posted today - so I have to share it with you!

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

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…
