Psalm 100

Sunday. A day set aside to rest and to join others in worshiping our Creator. Typically on Sundays I post specific Scripture verses that grandparents are turning to when praying for their grandchildren. But today, as we enter Thanksgiving week, my thoughts turn to Psalm 100. Only five verses long, but so much truth…for us …

Sunday’s Scripture (July 19)

A truly great resource for specific ways to pray for our grandchildren is the book A Grandmother’s Prayers by Kay Swatkowski. I know I have promoted this in an earlier blog, but it can bear repeating. One of the prayers recommended is that we find natural opportunities to share stories of ways God has cared …

Sunday’s Scripture (May 31)

My family is experiencing a tremendous amount of change and upheaval. My husband and I are spending more time in the U.S. though we continue our ministry in Ukraine, and are dealing with the pain of leaving wherever we have been. Does that make sense? This summer has been one of great anticipation as we …

Sunday’s Scripture (May 17)

“That’s mine.” “What? No, thanks. I don’t want to _____ [insert any chore].” “Do I have to share?!” One grandmother prays specifically that her grandchildren will grow up to be helpful, generous, caring adults…by exhibiting those attitudes and habits even as children. Of course, the grandparents and parents need to model this behavior so that …

Sunday’s Scripture (May 10)

I am so thankful to have reconnected with a dear high school friend…one of the advantages of social media, I suppose. When we were together I asked her to consider my request for scriptures that she prays for her grandchildren. Rather than send a specific scripture she shared that she prays for her grandchildren to …

Sunday’s Scripture — May 3

Sunday’s Scripture. I thank those of you who have commented, messaged me, or sent an e-mail letting me know how you specifically pray for your grandchildren. One grandmother (with her three daughters) prays every day for her grandchildren, especially the three who are in school. And particularly for protection for each one of them. She …

Sunday’s Scripture

When I originally started this blog, one regular feature that I had hoped would be most encouraging for all of us was Sunday’s Scripture. You can read about the beginnings here. Please do go back and read it so I don’t have to repost the information, okay? Thank you. Unfortunately, as I posted earlier, “things” …

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!) Today is Father’s Day and …
