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.

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.

Silly, Frilly, Grandma Tillie – Book Review

grandmatillie2I was delighted to get an invite to review the charming book; Silly, Frilly Grandma Tillie. 🙂

Story Published By: Flashlight Press

Written By: Laurie Jacobs

 

 

 

What a clever way to entertain your grandchildren!

 

My first thought while reading the book….
 

#1 As a Grandma, I’m not that good of an actress lol
 

Second thought
 

#2 My grands would see right through me, they are incredibly smart. 🙂
 

However, I will be reading this book to them soon for sure!

 
The Story: A big smile contoured my face when I picked up the book and read it for the first time. This adorable story is about a grandmother who enjoys being silly with various characters to teach and entertain her granddaughters. My favorite character is “Madame Frilly Tillie!” She certainly makes bath time fun. Although, “Chef Silly Tillie” can make an awesome grilled cheese sandwich. 🙂

 

 

Silly, Frilly, Grandma Tillie

I promise, this story will warm your soul and never bore you; as it absorbed my attention to the very last page. It gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside! 🙂   

The Book Itself: I found it to be colorful, eyecatching with the vivid choice of graphics and a genuine, captivating story to share with ANY grandchild.   

Oh and, obviously, Grandma Tillie enjoys changing characters and entertaining MORE than knitting! =)

The Simple Joys Of Grandparenting – Book Review

By Abigail R. Gehring

 
 
Abigail is the author of 10 books
Unique collection of nursery rhymes, delightful stories, recipes, games, activities and much more!

 

 

This enchanting, mastered book is excellent for new grandmas and grandpas. It captures the heart and mind of grandparents and grandchildren with its fun and educational features that graces its pages.

 

 

Also features many fun craft activities that will entertain and educate your grandchild for hours! 🙂

 

 

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

 

 

 

On page 106, the book offers materials needed and directions to make edible playdough, how awesome is that?! Kids absolutely love playdough! The recipe is so easy to make and more importantly, very EASY to clean up. This is one recipe that I will be sharing with my grandson when he gets a few years older. More edible recipes include; mini pizzas and homemade marshmallows. 🙂


 

 

The Simple Joys of Grandparenting even has pages where you can record special memories , activities, and events. Grandparents can also write down their grandchildren’s first sayings and words.

 

 

For Example…Just this past weekend my 2 year old grandson said his first whole sentence for me. He asked where our cat was, “Where’s Jesse At”? He asked, and that put a great big smile on my face for the rest of the day! 🙂 My daughter-in-law said that wasn’t his first full sentence, he’s been doing a lot more talking that Grandma and Grandpa don’t know about. LOL Birthdays and various dates can also be recorded. I really LOVE this book!

 

 

I especially love the quotes throughout the book such as;

 

 

“When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses” By Joyce Brothers

 

 

If you’re a grandparent, you WILL absolutely be thrilled with The Simple Joys of Grandparenting. A huge smile armored my face as I began diving in and reading. Love it!!! =)

 

 

Page 28

I saw supplies and directions needed to make a fun coupon book that my grandson will enjoy making for Mom and Dad to help them save money. (A couple of years down the road).

 

 

Page 155

Hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows. It made my mouth water just reading the recipe!

Creating Grand Memories Book Review – Something Special For Grandmothers

A Toolbox For Today’s Grandparents!

I had the pleasure of receiving an invitation for doing a review on a very special work book especially made for grandmothers. As a grandmother myself, I’m excited and honored to be considered for doing a review for such an exquisite tool for creating magical, keepsake memories for both grandmas and grandkids.

Memories are the most important and dearest element grandchildren can take with them into their adult lives and beyond. I’m 51, and I can still recall some of my fondest memories. And this well structured workbook conveys a sense of unparalleled bonding and sharing.

Book Written and Published By: Rebecca Yates and Charlotte Barnhart

The authors of this book certainly did their homework! The spiral-bound treasure includes authentic and creative tips, stories, cooking tips, recipes, bath time tips, communication tips, and lots and lots of space for grandmothers to write their thoughts, notes and ideas down. I love it and am so looking forward to writing and also placing some photos in it.

Pure genius ladies, great job and an awesome idea! 🙂

~~ Basic Outline Of Book ~~

Contents Include…

* What Is It About Grandparents
* Grand Essentials
* Grand Stories
* Grand Cooking
* Grand Baths
* Grand Communication
* Grand Outings
* Grand Memories
* P.S., Be Yourself
* Authors

The following is what I especially liked about the book 😉

A lot of the pages include a box at the bottom. In these boxes are tips, advice and thoughts.

Here is an example:

Why Is Answering Questions Important?

Then it goes on to say how asking and answering questions help develop language, literacy, and vocabulary skills.

I especially like the “Make Your Own Story” section of the book. I also like the empty pages at the end of the book. This lets us Grandmas write anything we want! 🙂

Today’s grandparents DON’T all have white hair. LOL 🙂 Some have blonde, brown, and red. And some even have some fun vibrant highlights blended through. Also most of today’s grandparents are staying fit by actively participating in their grandchildren’s activities and staying healthy by eating right and getting plenty of rest and sleep.

I know I want to be remembered by my grandson and future grandkids as being consistently active in their lives both physically and spiritually, laughing and enjoying life to the fullest. 🙂

Any grandparent would be thrilled to have this fun, heartfelt, and memorable spiral-bound book to record all their favorite memories, photos, and thoughts.

A special toolbox for today’s generation of Grandparents. To all you grandmothers out there…Get one today!
