Equip Our Grandchildren to Know Their Real "Super Power"

As grandparents, when we look back at raising our children, we likely have things we wish we knew to do differently. I do. The biggest is I wish I knew how to talk with God then, so I would have been able to help them learn how to talk with God. Looking back, I know now how much it matters to help the children we love learn to be people who talk with God on their own, people who watch for how God answers and people who remember what He does in their lives. These are some of the most important and essential things for the ones we love to grow to love, know and walk with God.

Now as grandma I know how to talk with God and I understand how absolutely vital it is for me to help my grandchildren learn to be people who talk with God, watch for how He answers and remember what He does. Many grandmas and grandpas I know often ask me what the are able to do to help their grandchildren know, love and walk with God. They do not want their grandchildren to turn away from a walk of their own with God, but do not know what they are able to do to hand down the faith to them.

I understand this, as it is where I was as a mom; but no more. Today I want to encourage you to do a simple thing to help equip your grandchildren ages four to fourteen learn to be people who talk with God, watch for what He does and remember. Then I want to ask for your help to let as many grandparents - and parents, too, know what to do as well.

Two years ago God put on my heart to develop a resource to help my grandsons learn to talk with Him. While I pray for and with my grandsons, I wanted something simple which they would be willing to use at home on their own. I knew how vital it is for them to learn to talk with God - it is not enough for me to talk to God for them (although I absolutely do this) - they must learn to talk to God for themselves for their faith to be strong and for them to walk closely with God. This was the motivation behind the creation of  Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children.

This book will provide one year - 52 weeks - of passages from Psalms which have been made into prayers for children to understand and pray to God. While it is an easy resource for parents and grandparents to use with the children they love and work through together, it is also a book children are able to use on their own to talk with God, record their requests and how God answers as well. It is "working" with my grandsons! Not only are they learning to talk with God on their own, but we have had some amazing, deep conversations about Who God is, why we obey Him and how we are able to know He answers our prayers - and we are only on week Eight!

Please do not just say you do not know how to hand down the faith - Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children will give you the tools you need to hand down the faith to the children you love. Please do not put it off - this book will equip the children you love, ages four through fourteen, to develop their own walk with God. I wish I had it when my children were young - or knew to write it then. I didn't. But, I do have it now and am using it with my grandsons. You are able to use it with the children you love now as well.

In this day when so much is uncertain - and even concerning - Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children is exactly the tool you are looking for as it will help the children you love learn to be people who pray. Please get it for them - it is available on Kindle at this link, on Amazon at this link and on Kidology at this link.

I am asking for your help. Please tell the parents and grandparents you know about Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children, so they are able to use it with the children they love. Please help spread the word - we are able to help the children we love learn their real "super power" - for them to talk with, know, love and walk with God on their own - this is one of the most important things we will ever do and Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children will help us - and them.
