Influence Your Grandchildren's Faith, No Matter How Far Away They Are
Just because you can't spend as much time with your grandchildren as you'd like, that doesn't mean you can't have a huge impact on their lives! In Long-Distance Grandparenting you'll learn how to make the most of the opportunities you do have to connect with your grandchildren. You will also learn
· how to pray for your grandkids more effectively
· ways to use technology to keep your relationship strong
· great ideas for grandkid visits, holidays, and special occasions
More important, you'll find practical tools and encouragement to connect with your grandchildren so that you can share God's love and invest in their faith like never before!
"Words do not adequately express the joy our grandkids have brought us and the sadness we so often feel because they live so far away. This book was a very personal read for me on several levels. Every page brought confirmation of our important role as grandparents and every page brought practical ideas that we started implementing immediately."
