My husband and I became grandparents at 43.

Now,…

Is your grandparenting a blessing or painful?

Is your Grandparenting a Blessing or Painful?

Grandparenting is a special blessing but can also be a pain. Messy family relationships can leave grandparents hurting, depressed, discouraged, and hopeless.  Divorce, drugs, alcohol, and adult children walking away from their faith cause broken hearts for grandparents.

Grandparents are always excited when they learn they are going to be grandparents especially when they there waiting for their first…

A Look at our Grandchildren’s Culture

Our grandchildren are facing a different culture or environment than many of us did when we were growing up or when we raised our children. People make culture and are molded by culture. It changes with the generations just as modernization, fashions, and ideas.

As grandparents, we feel the culture is trying to steal our grandchildren and their parents with their subtle and often dangerous enticements. J.B. Phillips writes in John 10:10 “The thief comes with the sole intention of…

Finding Joy in Praying for my Grandchildren

What a joy it is to have that precious little grandchild come running into your arms with hugs and kisses. The six-year-old calling to tell you she lost her first tooth or your seven-year-old grandson excited about making his first goal in his soccer game.

In addition to senior discounts, grandchildren are one of the rewards of growing older. Mary H.…

Our College Campuses Need Prayers

Many of our grandchildren are attending college and universities, some are Christian, and some are secular colleges.  The grandchildren attending secular universities are taught a secular worldview and probably navigating ungodly influences. We need to pray for our grandchildren’s deep spiritual needs, the needs of their souls.

God'a Timetable vs My Timetable

 Is God's timetable too slow for you sometimes? I sometimes think it is too slow. In John chapter eleven, we read about the death of Lazarus. Mary and Martha sent word to their dear beloved friend Jesus to let him know their brother Lazarus had become very ill. They expected Jesus to come to heal their brother, but he did not come, and they wondered why. However, Jesus had different plans, He told the disciples, and "This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God's…
