As you work on this project with your grandchildren, share with them some stories from your childhood. Tell them about their great grandparents and great-great grandparents. This is a wonderful time to help them learn about their family's past. Share with them how the most important thing a family can do is to pass on a heritage of faith and tell them why your faith in God is so important to you.
