While reading the eBook, I was inspired to begin my own scrapbook for my two grandchildren. However, I’m known for starting craft projects and not finishing them. *Sigh 🙁

I found Donna’s legacy of Scrapbooking Your Christian Faith pleasantly uplifting and incredibly inspirational. What an amazing gift to leave your family members! 🙂

Scripture From Donna

And I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished…
Philippians 1:6 (NLT)

I was raised Pentecostal, so I was brought up knowing Jesus as my Savior. I thought sharing my own story of my spiritual upbringing and my favorite scriptures with my grandchildren would be a phenomenal way I could share my heart and myself with them. 🙂

I thought, “What a lovely gesture and gift to leave your loved ones!” My favorite part! Also, something that I loved about this treasure of an eBook was all the scriptures she includes throughout. In fact, Donna begins her legacy eBook with some extraordinarily, spiritual scriptures….

Dear God,
I ask that you will be with the one who is reading this
book. As she reflects on the moments found within these
examples, would you remind her of the times you have been
there for her?

Heavenly Father, please guide and inspire her to scrapbook
her own message of faith. Help her to create stories, letters,
and prayers that will show your faithfulness to her and her
loved ones.

Please let this book be a tool to help her share her heart
moments of your presence in her life. Lord, guide her mind,
her heart, and her hands as she creates her own scrapbook
of faith.

May her love and faith reach the hearts of her loved ones as
well as those of future generations.
In the powerful name of Jesus, I ask you for those blessings
for my reader.

Amen
🙂

Grandparents Tips for Cleaning After The Grandkids’ Visit

cleaningproductsfromkids

It’s always nice to have the grandkids staying for a couple of days or weeks. After the fun, it comes the time to take care of the damages. Organizing is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the mess created by the curious and extremely active infants. Prepare the mop and vacuum cleaner and get your home back on track with a simple domestic cleaning.

Take Precautions


Even if you didn’t take advantage of these tips this time, you will be prepared for the next visit. In order to preserve larger part of your home tidy, you should set a playing area. This will not only make your cleaning routine easier, but it will also ensure a safety environment for your grandkids. Childproofing a certain room will give you the needed security. However, you should still take certain measures to make your entire home safe for the kids. You need to establish certain limits and rules. It’s difficult to play tough with your grandkids, but it’s for their own good.

Grandparents Tips for Cleaning  After The Grandkids1

If you want to maintain your home neat, you should encourage the children to clean after themselves. The habit can be adopted by kids at any age. Believe it or not, even pre – scholars will gladly contribute to the cleaning routine. You should only ask them kindly. Kids are very helpful at that age. It can be something simple like wiping up the table. Ask older children to wash the dishes or do their own laundry. Chances are, their mom and dad already make them do this. Assign different chores and you will not have to worry for falling behind with your cleaning tasks.

Divide Your Work

Don’t try to deal with more things than you can. If you overwork, you will probably get tired or even feel sick. Create a plan and tackle one task at a time. Start with the most urgent things like dealing with a dirty pile of dishes or vacuuming. De- cluttering is also essential for the domestic cleaning. You need to put back toys and clothes that are dispersed around your home. The next step is to put the laundry in the washing machine. Window cleaning and dusting are optional. Treat only the areas that require your immediate action.

Close Reach

Prepare a basket with all the cleaning products and tools you will need. Going back and forth your house, just to fetch a sponge or a brush will only exhaust you. Be sure that you have everything you need before starting your home cleaning. However, don’t worry if you don’t have that particular stain remover. Super grandmother like you probably has one or two old – school tricks for dealing with the nasty spills.

Ask For Help

If your grandchildren left you with apocalyptical situation, you can always get a help. Hiring a professional cleaning service will save you a lot of efforts for a certain cost. After all, the last thing you want is risking your health.

Enjoy fully the visit of your beloved grandchildren without worrying about the cleaning after that.

Faithbook: 3 Simple Ways to Scrapbook Your Christian Faith for your Spiritual Legacy

Scrapbook Your Christian Faith

By: Donna Riner Weber – A grandmother and a strong woman of God! =)

I Personally Loved Her Welcome Video On Her New WebSite!

It was extraordinarily heart-felt!

Nana, MeMa, Gigi, Granny, whatever your AKA, God has a divine mission for YOU!

When the Israelites had been in the wilderness 40 years, God told Joshua that Moses was dead and he needed to get his people ready.
Joshua listened to God, prepared his people and led the new generation into the Promised Land.
The Grandmothers Bible compares us (Grandmothers) to Joshua, in that God has called us to prepare our future generations and lead them to Him.

heart

It is our divine mission to teach our grandchildren about God’s love and how He has been faithful in our lives. But how can you teach your grandchild about God’s presence in your life?

Of course one way is through the life you live. Another is by telling your grandchild stories. But while we need to do that, over time some of our stories will be forgotten.

There’s another way you can try to ensure that God’s Presence in your life will be remembered—through Scrapbooking Your Faith (Faithbooking.)

Three simple ways to Scrapbook Your Faith

Scriptures:

The Bible teaches us to “Ponder and meditate on it (God’s Holy Word) day and night, making sure you practice everything written it in. Then you’ll get where you’re going: then you’ll succeed.” Joshua 1:8 (MSG)

To help teach your future generations about the scriptures, you can adhere one of your favorite verses by the photo of your grandchild. You may choose a scripture which you’ve used to pray for your grandchild.

Prayers:

Write a prayer especially for each grandchild. Let it be a Blessing. You may write just one prayer or write one occasionally as he matures through different stages. You might decide to write one each year on her birthdays.

Stories of Faith:

As Christians you have had experiences where you know without a doubt that God intervened. Maybe a collision was averted or you lived through an accident when the doctor had said you wouldn’t make it. Perhaps you had a baby after you had been told you’d never be able to have one or maybe God blessed your home with a precious little adopted child. Share these stories of God’s Faith.

Grandma, whatever your story of faith is, you do have one and it is your responsibility to tell your grandchild about God’s love and His presence in your life. “One generation makes known your faithfulness to the next.” Isaiah 38:19 (TLB)

Let him/her know that while everyone experiences problems, God has been there for you and He will be there for them. Through your scriptures, pictures, prayers and stories of faith teach them about God’s presence in your life. Through your Faithbook Give them Hope for their Future.
