Your heart aches for your grandchildren, even if you don't get many chances to see them in person. You deeply want them to know how much God loves them, to grow in their relationship with him, and to make wise, God-honoring decisions. The good news is, just because you can't spend as much time with them as you'd like, that doesn't mean you can't have a huge impact on their lives!

In Long-Distance Grandparenting you'll learn how to make the most of the opportunities you do have to connect with your grandchildren, including using technology to keep your relationship strong and taking advantage of the time you have together.

But going beyond your relationship with your grandkids, this book emphasizes something that matters even more--your grandchild's relationship with God. Find the encouragement and guidance to connect with your grandchildren and invest in their faith like never before!
