Grandchildren are one of life's sweetest gifts.
Grandparents nurture faith best by loving their grandchildren, telling them stories from the past and celebrating family rituals and traditions. As grandparents, you may find yourself tiptoeing across eggshells whenever the subject of religion arises. But you still have the right to articulate the beliefs you hold with or without support from your children, says Carol Luebering in When You Are a Grandparent.
Luebering, a grandmother herself, discusses how grandparents can serve best as a sort of precatechetical resource: modeling God's love, being an advocate or listening ear and shaping a child's taste for ritual and tradition.
