It has been awhile since I wrote,My update on my family is not good on all points,I have not seen my children and grandchildren for a few weeks.But...My husband and I are connecting with a good church that doesnt leave us feeling volnerable.Its pretty big,but the Lord has drawn us there.My husband and I are standing united now on the children issues.It might be a long road,but Jesus is on that road with us.I hear my new grndson is a big boy,I was in delivery when he was born,he weighed over 9 pounds.Caleb Eli Micheal.I guess With a name like that a worrior,a priest and an angel,He'll be all right.I guess also its my time to relax and explore the world with out the children.I was 16 when i had my daughter,and i never went without a kid.Empty nest at an early age...thanks for all the prayers ,jack and julie

For some reason, the email notice snagged me during my writing session. I'm touched by the very dilemma of broken generations I am writing about. Praying grandmothers AND grandfathers must please God very much; He seems to answer a lot of their prayers. I just posted my grandson's response to my cajoling on my blog today. You'll enjoy it. Go to the previous posts if you are curious about the multi-generational "rite of passage." For that matter, subscribe; I believe you will be encouraged. www.gendads.com I meet with three lit agents over the weekend to "sell" Generational Fathering to them.

Julie, my heart aches for you. Having even one son and one grandson away from the Lord, I can't imagine how hard it must be for you. If you need some encouragement and suggestions, you could check my www.christiangrandparents.com blog.

I pray that love shines through to him and draws him to his Creator and Saviour.

My oldest grandson is not following the Lord either, but he is starting to soften now that he and his girlfriend are getting ready to settle down. I know that the most important thing we can give him is love right now. It makes him hungry for the warmth he shared with us.

I really do praise God for the parents of my younger grandchildren. They just hosted Dr. and Mrs. Gary Parker at their church for three days and kept them at their home. My grandchildren loved them and learned so much creation science. What an awesome blessing from God! These same grandchildren have already visited the Creation Museum many times and recently went to a creation conference in TN. They are 5, 7, and 9. I am so proud of them. The 7 year old recently shared the Good News of creation with a 4-H judge who wanted to know why he displayed his model T-rex eating plants instead of meat. He clearly explained his (creation) views and his plans for next year's Ark model. The judge later told his father that this young man could become a great leader some day.
I do also praise God for the father of my older grandchildren, too. He returned to the Lord several years ago when his wife first left him and has tried his best, as a single parent, to teach his children God's better way.

So many tragic situations. Some days I feel like there is no way the battles for my family's hearts will be won. Then I remember that apart from God that is true. But He is faithful and loving and patient and able. May God have mercy on our grandchildren. I have tried sharing books and videos, only to find that they are totally unused. If it isn't on the latest marquis, it isn't good enough. How I praise God for the one family that is teaching some of my grandchildren about God as Creator and Savior. How I ache for the son who is belatedly trying to teach my teenage grandchildren the truth, only to find that their minds were steered in the wrong direction years earlier. May God have mercy on them, for they were misled in their early days, and turn their hearts toward Him now.

Wow,Kate! That's a whole new aspect of grandparenting I haven't had to experience, but I strongly admire your Mom and Dad and others like them for being there for their grandchildren. How hard it must be for them to have to deal with their own ungrateful son! This is food for thought for another blog post.

My own parents are great examples of good grandparents. They were never required to step in as 24/7 Grandparents, but they did step in as the parents of the ex. When my brother flew the coop and left his wife and four little kids, Mom and Dad stepped up to plate. My brother and his new wife have treated them horridly over the past 17 years, accusing them of befriending his ex-wife just to see the kids, calling them unsaved, calling them demon possessed (that's just unspeakably ridiculous), sending vitriolic letters every six months or so. There's more. I'll stop there. My ex sister-in-law...what do you call her, sister-out-law?? =) Anyhow, she is one of my dearest friends, a true sister. She had been one of my students years ago and now she is my friend.

My husband's youngest daughter is in a similar situation. I have not yet met this young mom of two, as she lives in Alaska and could not attend our wedding. Her marriage fell apart shortly after her dad's and mine got started. But her in-laws took her in. She told me on Face Book yesterday how thankful she is for them and how good they are to her and the kids. Many thanks and blessings to grandparents who stand in the gap opposite their own wayward child and made a difference in those young lives! i hope I can be as good a grandparent!
