my grandsons and I do not want them to experience the pain which comes with gender confusion. Linda Ranson-Jacobs, a friend of mine, shared the text for a workshop she recently taught on this topic. She shared how; “Dr. Paul McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and the current distinguished service professor of psychiatry, was a pioneer in transgender surgeries, but stopped doing them and urged others to stop. Dr. McHugh and others actually studied the surgery's long-term effects. The reason they stopped? McHugh concluded this was an attempt to treat a psychological problem with a surgical solution -- and it wasn't working. It still isn't.”
Because we want them to trust God. Sometimes telling the truth is difficult – brings about difficult conversations, but it is essential for us to be people who always tell our grandchildren the truth. If we want our grandchildren to grow up trusting God, we have to help them learn and believe the truth from when they are little. One way we do this is by being grandparents who always tell our grandchildren the truth. If they know they can always trust us to tell them the truth, they are more likely to believe us and go on to experience and learn for themselves how they can trust and believe God. And isn’t this the path to a life of joy? Of course it is! So, we are grandparents who tell our grandsons the truth; and are intentional about doing so.
