We are "View-Givers"!

Image result for clipart of viewfinder handsFor the past several days I've been writing about LeapFrog fun, and while I still have more to share with you, today I want to write about something important. Passing on a heritage of faith to our grandchildren. I've been blessed to participate in a meeting with a group of leaders in the area of grandparenting ministry, and Steve Bell (Willow Creek Church) said something which got my attention: "How we feel about our grandchildren is how they will feel about themselves."

Did this get your attention? It sure got my attention! Happily, my grandsons know I love them like crazy and absolutely believe they are gifts from the hand of God! Why do they know this? Because I've said them a time or two . . . or pretty much every time I see them!

Please know as grandparents we do make a huge impact upon our grandchildren. It does matter what we say and do around these sweet blessings from God - more than you may even know!

So, the next time you are with your grandchildren, take time to give them a view of themselves which will build them up and help them see themselves as God does - ever so very loved and cherished!
