A Grandmother’s Prayers

I am a firm believer in prayer. It is a comfort to know that our heavenly Father invites me to come to Him anytime, with any concern, for any reason and just talk with Him. The Bible encourages prayer. Philippians 4:6 says: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” What a beautiful opportunity to talk with God!

When our children were in school I joined a group called Moms in Touch. This nationally known group makes prayer an emphasis for mothers and their children in school. It was marvelous to pray for them and their teachers, classmates, and administrators by name. Now I want my grandchildren to know that MiMi prays for them.

Recently, I sent each grandchild a card with a personal Bible verse that expresses my prayer. It was a simple gesture, yet profound. I keep a color tab in my Bible to flag their Scripture prayer. It is a joy to remember them in prayer.

Now, as a grandmother, I hope to have a Grandmothers in Touch group! Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Grandmothers that join together, across the miles maybe, to pray for their grandchildren and their classmates and teachers.

If you’re human, and especially if you’re a mom, your answer will be, “Yes!” I recently called into a business meeting, but since my Continue »

Cousins Reading Club

“I’m bored!” The dreaded words our four children would cry out every summer several weeks after the close of another school year. I knew that unless there were plans and activities to replace the boredom, summer would not only be hot and sticky but really long! Now my school-age grandchildren are burdening their parents with Continue »

Christmas Is About Jesus

Christmas is about Jesus. The Son, the only Son of God. The Word in the beginning. Creator of all things. The Lamb, the image of the invisible God. In Him all the fullness of deity dwells. In Him all things hold together. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. In all things made like Continue »

Praying For Your Children

I was just dropping my then-12-year-old Lexi off at pottery class, but found myself faced with an unexpected and unsettling dilemma. Each month, the pottery studio featured an art display in the lobby but this one sickened my spirit. Skeletons, overtly sensual sculptures of Eden, death, darkness. Perhaps it was the Halloween season, but this Continue »
