Grandparenting Must Be Intentional

Grandparenting Must Be Intentional

I love my grandchildren! I guess most grandparents love their grandkids. God gives us this bond with them. I’ve analyzed this at length, and part of it has to do with getting a mini do-over. We get to be a “shadow” parent, not real parents, but right behind. Another reason is I can see me in them. I see personality traits, good or bad that they are developing that reminds me of…well me.

Opinions For The Resting

You might have seen the headline recently about the woman whose grown children wrote a very unflattering obituary for her.
