I love to rock the grandchildren. When they are small, under 2 maybe, this is possible. Nap time is a great time to cuddle and rock, but can turn into a bit of a competition to see who can stay awake the longest or who goes to sleep first. It can be a challenge to make these little balls of fire sit

What is Real
"Grandma, will you tell Brenna that Santa Clause isn't real!" What?!!! I thought to myself. May I say in two seconds, I had at least 4 different answers to this timely question spinning in my mind. This is a job for super-grandma, Lord help me!, because Brenna is not my granddaughter, although she

Much to grandpa's dismay, the grandchildren refer to our home as Grandma's House. He wonders why it is never Grandpa's House, because it's his home too. I have my theory, but grandpa does, from time to time, attempt to get the attention directed to him. Grandpa can be quite a tease and is
Disney World Spectacular
With suitcase packed, and pen and paper ready and waiting, I left for a week’s vacation with my youngest daughter, son in-law, and 3 grandchildren. A Grandma's Point of View spectacular! My first of several life applications came as we were in line for the Safari ride at Animal Kingdom at Disney
My youngest grandson is 17 months old and beginning to talk. He has two older siblings, so there is never a time in each day that he does not observe or hear adult conversation or interaction. He knows and says the word for many body parts. He knows all the farm animals and the sounds they make.
A Night With Grandma
The question: "Grandma, is it my turn to spend the night with you?" gets asked in my presence quite often these days. Why? The reasons have not changed from my generation to the present. (1) It was a short trip, so if I changed my mind, home was not far away; (2) It gave me a break from my mother,
My daughter and son-in-law recently went on a 3 day hunting trip to Oklahoma. Their children are 7, 5, and 3. The children’s care for the 3 days was well planned in advance, and the children were looking forward to visiting and staying with different family members, with my husband and I receiving
Benefit Auction & Soup Supper for New Hope!
What a blessing to have someone from the community just call us up and ask if they could do a fundraiser for New Hope! God bless Debbie T! She has done everything in planning the Benefit Auction & Soup Supper for New Hope! We feel so blessed by the Lord! Saturday, December 10 Soup Supper
Words of a Little Child
Anyone who has small children or grandchildren (sometimes older, yikes!), knows that we cannot always be responsible for what words might come from their innocent mouths. Most of the time though, they are just repeating what they have heard from adults, their siblings, or from what they hear and
Faith in the Unseen
When we were expecting our 8th grandchild, I had the privilege of going with my daughter to an ultrasound appointment. I could not tire watching the screen! As the paddle was moved around, I was able to see baby’s body parts that were recognizable, such as spine, hands, and beating heart, and then
Say No To Fear
Traveling in a car with an older grandchild is a gift. They can sit in the front seat beside you and we can just talk or be a good listener if needed. It had been Halloween a few days before and my 11 year old granddaughter began to tell me of her haunted house adventure. One of the classes at our
While cuddling my 3 yr. old granddaughter, she suddenly sat up and began to feel my arm, then my neck and belly. In a true and honest voice she said, "Grandma, you are jiggley." In the next 2 seconds, I had several thoughts go through my mind, but my response to this precious child was,
No-Night Fall Fundraiser Letter
Give to the Lord…Buy a Board!
The Hope Chest Thrift Store is bursting at the seams and we’re already out of room! We’re asking you to sow into this newly established ministry outreach of New Hope by helping us acquire some lumber. Would you be willing to buy one board, or one sheet of plywood? Although it’s not the Ark,
Don’t Look Back!
My four year old granddaughter has learned to ride her bike! One sunny spring day, as she began her ride down a long driveway, I reminded her that the rock was rough and that she would need to look forward, not back, as I was following her in my car. I encouraged her to focus on pedaling and
