Generation to Generation: A Case Study on Factors in the Family and Faith Community Impacting Faith Development

God’s “Grand” Gifts

Becoming a grandparent is a layered experience. Our identity as mother or father takes on a new intensity of supporter, guide and helper. We move out of the lead and the center but we also “become grand.” The image we held of becoming a grandparent might have signaled that we are “old.” But this amazing love can transform that into a mystical distinction of surprising beauty, wisdom and grace.
