Helping to Remove My Obstacles
I need grandmother help and this book did that! With fourteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren I am usually in need of some guidance. All are precious in God’s sight, and in mine too. However, sometimes they have problems and I am sorry to say that those times often cause me worry and concern.
GRANDPARENTING THROUGH OBSTACLES gives helpful insights into different types of problems. Even looking in the contents gave hope. Some of the titles are: “Won By Love”, “Jack’s Fear”, “Heart Talk” “Passing Along the Faith” and “The Full Armor of God.” Digesting the words of each of the twenty stories in this excellent book, gave me hope for growth in my grandmother role.
The two authors of this book have organized it into four, “Challenges” . In the five personal stories within each Challenge, I was faced with new and encouraging insights.
At the end of each story there are five special directives from the authors. The fifth is a closing prayer entitled, “One Way To Pray”, which is a powerful prayer and to the point.
I recommend, GRANDPARENTING THROUGH OBSTACLES as a joyful way to reach out to all grandchildren. God’s love shines brightly through each page. Thank you to Rene’e Gray-Wilburn and Dianne E. Butts for gathering together this awesome resource for all grandparents.
