Awesome Opportunity, Priceless Gift
Grandmothering is a holy assignment given by God, an awesome opportunity not only to care for and nurture young lives but also to leave a lasting legacy that will shape future generations. Grandmothering also is a priceless giftone that can be fully appreciated only after years of preparation (otherwise known as motherhood).
Six Christian writers who recognize and cherish that gift have come together in this book to share personal stories, biblical guidance, and words of encouragement for the joys and challenges of being a grandmother. Whether you are a grandmother early or late in life; whether you have one or many grandchildren; whether you are with your grandchildren on a daily or an occasional basisyou will find that these devotions ring true because they are written by grandmothers who have experienced universal challenges, questions, needs, and joys.
You may begin using the book at any time of the year, making your way through the months until youve completed a years cycle. It is our hope that, in the process, you will come to have an even deeper appreciation for the awesome opportunity and priceless gift of grandmothering!
adapted from the introduction
Each brief meditation begins with a passage of Scripture and ends with a prayer.

Donna Grant5 Stars Out Of 5February 6, 2009Donna GrantI love this book! Very true reflections of what it means to be a grandparent, and some very appropriate Biblical verses for each situation. I intend to give it to several of my friends, who are also grandparents.
Heather Bates5 Stars Out Of 5February 28, 2008Heather BatesI was given this book as a gift by a friend.I found it so helpful and appealing that I ordered several to give as gifts to my friends who were and to one whom had just become a grandmother. A visiting lady to one of my friends saw the book and asked where it had come from and immediately I was requested to obtain one for her - I do believe this says it all for such a wonderfully, naturally, easy to understand book and to whom one can associate with the writers. I recommend this book as a must for daily reading to all grandmothers.
