Sunday’s Scripture: Praying for the Grandchildren

(I want to know which Scriptures you personally are praying for your grandchildren. It will be my privilege to share these verses with everyone on subsequent Sundays. If you choose to briefly explain why you choose the verses you do, or have a short testimony concerning the verses, please share!) I’m enjoying hearing from grandparents …

Grandma’s Briefs

First of all, you have to love a blog entitled “Grandma’s Briefs.” I mean, don’t you? Because of my new blog, I have been looking around to find like-minded grandparents — ones who post encouraging articles, ones who brag about their ‘grands,’ ones whose sites are just fun to visit. Ones who inspire me, challenge …

And it encourages me …

A Grandparents Day of Prayer: September 7, 2014

“Our grandchildren are growing up in a desperate moral and spiritual climate in which they must navigate a world hostile to truth.

The first meeting

When we learned that our daughter was pregnant, we were naturally thrilled. Sooo excited.  Who has married children and doesn’t expectantly await that momentous call? All of our friends who were already in the grandparents’ club sent greetings and congratulations and promised us that our lives would never be the same. “Just wait until you …

Welcome, Grandparents, to a new blog!

My given name is Marianna. Some call me Mom, Mumsie, Mamu, Mother. All such sweet sounds to my ear — especially the first time I knew that Mamamamama really meant ME! (Of course, there were times that I dreaded hearing Mooooooommmmmmy for the gazillionth time in one day. And I did have to explain from …
