What does it mean to be a good grandmother? As a matter of fact, it's not just about making a mean chocolate chip cookie.
At last, a practical, Christian guide for grandmothers—and for younger women preparing for that stage of life! Since our culture is in love with immaturity, advice written for "older" women can tend to focus on changes: empty nests, new priorities, grown children getting married, etc. But the Bible tells us to focus on the things that don't change: In all seasons of life, God has good works prepared in advance for us to walk in. And whether you're a young woman, married, unmarried, widowed, middle-aged, or a great-grandma, you never quit exercising that faith in Christ. Grandkids and getting older, dinners and hospitality, mentorship and being an "in-law" all come with their own stretches of bumpy road, but faith and joy (and a little of Nancy Wilson's practical advice) go a long way. Women travelling through this season should be thinking in terms of family legacy—and in terms of eternity—as they seek godly wisdom, great joy, and a silver-haired crown of glory.
From the Book:
"So this book is for those women who are traveling, as I am, through the seasons of life with the desire to grow in grace and wisdom, with the goal to keep pressing on to be fruitful and faithful. And having passed the height of summer, and now somewhere in the autumn season, we want to look forward to all that is coming with courage. We want to continue to do our duties faithfully and cheerfully, not shrinking back, but embracing each day with thanks and humility, keeping on 'the way of righteousness.'" -From the preface
