What a Ride! Sep 11, 2008
As a "young" grandmother of four, I needed this book! Back when I was the mother of two little girls, I envisioned my future as a stay-at-home grandma who baked cookies and clipped coupons while the grandkids played under my feet. It never occured to me that I'd actually have a life! But here I am, eager to be the grandmother I need to be, but finding it hard to do everything I know I need to do.
I was hooked as soon as I read the chapter titles. From "Bathe Them in Prayer" to "Be Remembered as a Fun, Gutsy Grandmom" to "Never Give Up on Your Grandchildren--or Their Parents," each chapter and its stories hit me right where I am.
But the message woven throughout is the one that grabbed me at the heart: "Let the legacy you leave be your life." Sharon asks, "When we look back over our lives, what will we consider the most important of all we did?" I know the answer. I want my life to echo in eternity. This book is helping me do that.

In this wonderful little book, author Sharon Hoffman shares her wisdom on influencing the spiritual lives of your grandchildren. It was a fun read and it also really made me think of the opportunity that I will have to influence the lives of my grandchildren. I need to start planning now! I especially liked the section on how to be a great long-distance grandparent. Five stars for sure.
