There is so much I can do

Grandparenting Through Obstacles by Renee Gray-Wilburn and Dianne E. Butts was a book I thought might be useful since we are grandparents of two granddaughters in town and are the go-to babysitters. Our daughter and son-in-law do attend our church with the girls and their relationship is great, etc. So, what good grandparenting hints might there be in this book format for our benefit? I was overwhelmed with the depth of all the different life family stories and all that the individual grandparents were doing under duress often to insure that the seeds of sound spiritual bases were sown… I didn’t even have that problem. Yet, I found that I was certainly lacking in taking the opportunity to spiritually grow our granddaughters in the word and love of our Lord. I was also reminded of how as grandparents, we ‘get to show the love of God’ just by being grandparents and lovin’ on them! What a terrific reminder, scripture study guide, prayer guide, and encouragement the book has become to me. God is good to guide and mature us as grandparents through this marvelous, fun, enriching book. Renee and Dianne do a masterful job of researching scripture and scenarios to be able to relate to many family situations and ultimately touch each one with the true message of the gospel.
