"I am not  ready to be a grandmother."  That's what author Lydia Harris said when she first learned that she was about to enter a new stage of life.  Many of us like to prepare for new stages, and Lydia wanted to in this instance, but she just  wasn't sure how  to get ready to become a grandparent .  She pondered questions like, "What role did grandparents play?" and "What  should I do to prepare?" Npw ten years and four grandchildren later, Lydia knows that grandparenting is an ezciting and important role.  She's also learned a few things she wishes she had known before she became a grandparent .  Her learning experience prompted her to write this Bible study to help you prepare your heart for grandparenting.  And even if you have been a grandparent for several years. you can still prepare your heart to be a better grandparent in the days ahead.

Preparing My Heart for Grandparenting provides six weeks of Bible-study lessons to help grandparents and those about to be grandparents.  Each week contains five lessons with Scriptures, illustrations and insights from grandparents, a :grand-thought" takeaway, and a prayer.  Weekends include: "grand-slam" ideas for activities with grandchildren, devotionals for grandparents, and Sunday prayers (for grandparents to pray for themselves along with scripture-based prayers to pray for their grandchildren).  The study also features quotes from grandchildren about their prandparents.
