A great resource for any grandparent. Filled with stories and instructions on how to keep an active role in your grandchildrens lives. Peppered with Chritian principles on praying for your grandchildren, modeling god in their lives, and being an example to them! I reccomend it highly!

I received this book through the GoodReads first reads program in exchange for an honest review.

This book was incredibly sweet. It lays out the various challenges that a grandparent may face in today's world. What do you do if your grandchildren are in a different state? What do you do if your children have cut off contact with you, but you wish to remain in your grandchildren's lives? What do you do to impart your life lessons to them, if others aren't listening?

Practical advice melds with real
