    The profound sacredness of loving our children and their children leads to a role that is fun, challenging, and necessary. Michele Howe asserts that Theres a Reason They Call It GRAND Parenting, and then goes on to distinguish between run of the mill grandparents and GRAND parents:

    A grandparent seeks to pack a positive punch of biblical influence into their grandchildrens lives. They prayerfully seek out the most effective ways to lend a hand to their adult children in both practical and fun ways. They dont simply seek to spoil their grandchildren with good times or material extras . . . The wise grandparent will do everything they can to demonstrate and illustrate the love of Jesus Christ to their grandchildren. . . . Grandparents understand how fleeting life is and proactively look for divine opportunities to point their grandchildren to Jesus.

    Grand Ideas for Maximum Impact

    Howe expands on her definition with practical counsel around hospitality, relationship building, and unconditional love. Grand Ideas at the end of each chapter provide support and inspiration for offering spiritual instruction. Cheering on our grandchildren is a priority whether they live close by or even if distance adds to the challenge.

    Set aside time and money and energy to invest in that all-important relationship. Make the most of every opportunity to connect.

    Become a student of your grandchilds uniqueness so youll know their love language and how to communicate with them.

    Listen with patience to their struggles and successes. Let them know you have their full attention and support.

    Get creative in engineering opportunities to be with your grandchildren; e.g. picking them up from school, shuttling them to their activities.

    Never stop praying for any of your grandkids and their parents.

    In challenging seasons of family life, be a safe haven. On a fallen planet, illness, divorce, and struggles with addiction can be devastating, but a caring grandparent can provide stability.

    The opportunity to have an impact on another generation is a humbling privilege. Working to be a transforming influence in the lives of our childrens children is an investment in our familys future and a journey that is sure to keep a grandparents faith vibrant and growing.
