Biblical Grandparenting explains culture's misleading messages about grandparenting, provides a biblical overview of the role of grandparents, and shares groundbreaking research that will give you a vision to impact the next generation for Christ. In addition, you will be given practical methods to disciple your grandchildren and navigate your place in the family. You are needed as a grandparent--and not simply as a babysitter or a playmate. If you want to care for your grandchildren, give them something that will truly last: a firm spiritual foundation and a close personal relationship they will cherish forever.
