Release Date: 11/2017

Howe once again engages readers with her easy, conversational style. Covering the what, why, and how, she highlights the important role grandparents play in the lives of their grandchildren.

Grandparents are encouraged to use every opportunity to foster strong relationships with their progeny while respecting the boundaries set by their adult children. With scriptural support, grandparents are motivated to not only pray without ceasing but to balance their work, time, and finances to be involved in their grandchildren’s lives.

Finding time and providing space to create memories is key. However, the most important characteristic of becoming a wonderful grandparent is pointing grandchildren to Jesus and never missing the opportunity to show His love.

The short chapters end with an action takeaway thought and a prayer. Recommend to all grandparents as well as to those looking forward to that season of life.
