Appendix A: What is the Responsibility of a Grandchild to a Grandparent?

Many powerful voices are influencing your grandchildren, from those at home and in school to those in the world of entertainment and media. What can you do to speak wisdom and truth into their lives?

Grandparenting gives you a biblical foundation for investing spiritually in your grandchildren and walks you through principles of influencing them for Christ-from sharing the Gospel with unbelieving grandchildren to discipling them to a mature faith in Jesus. Josh Mulvihill, a leading expert on Christian grandparenting and an experienced pastor, explains the role of a grandparent according to the Bible, discipleship practices, and biblical principles to strengthen family relationships.

Perfect for individuals, small groups, or Sunday school classes, this book gives you the tools you need to intentionally influence grandchildren for Christ.

Your grandchildren need you-and not just as a companion or baby-sitter. God designed you to pass on a rich heritage of faith in Christ and make a difference in their lives.
