Thank you for your support!

Hi, Renee here! I just wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank all of you who voted for our book at Book Fun Magazine and who have supported us by reading our blog, purchasing our book, or telling others about us. Since Grandparenting Through Obstacles was released in August 2012, we have won two awards:

~ GRAND Magazine’s Top Grandparenting Book for 2012; and

~ Book Fun Magazine’s Nonfiction Book of the Year

I believe I speak for both Dianne and myself when I say that this is far more than we had imagined! Our hearts for this book have always been to reach as many grandparents as possible in order to encourage them, put some creative resources and ideas into their hands and imaginations, and arm them with relevant scriptures and prayers.

By doing so, it is our hope that Christian grandparents everywhere will step more confidently into their role of intentionally grandparenting their grandkids in order to ultimately bring them into a closer walk with Jesus.

Obviously, the more that word gets out about our book and the more recognition it receives, the more grandparents it can reach. Awards and accolades are always nice, but they’re not worth much if they don’t help to achieve a greater goal. We’re praying that the accomplishments of our book so far–and hopefully those that are still to come–will help us achieve our greater goal of helping to spiritually equip grandparents to help them do their job more effectively and with more joy and peace.

So, I thank you for helping us to move one step closer to that goal and for your continued support moving forward by helping us promote the Grandparenting Through Obstacles book and blogsite.
