Overview

Even under the best circumstances, it takes time and intention to disciple grandchildren and pass on a legacy of faith. So how much harder is the assignment in a family experiencing fractures such as divorce, estrangement, or prodigals? How are grandparents to reach grandchildren for Christ when there are such barriers? In Overcoming Grandparenting Barriers, Larry Fowler, founder of the Legacy Coalition, offers a helpful guide to influencing grandchildren's spiritual lives even in the most discouraging and hurtful situations, such as when

· an adult child is not following the Lord
· grandchildren are not being raised by the adult child and access to them is limited
· grandparents are prohibited from addressing spiritual matters when they visit their grandchildren

Overcoming Grandparenting Barriers provides guidance and strategies along with encouragement for grandparents to persevere--to understand that they are not alone and that their role is too crucial to give up on reaching the next generation for Christ.

I am not a grandparent myself, but I found this book to be helpful in parenting my child and in understanding what grandparents go through when they have grandchildren. The author, Larry Fowler, discussed barriers that are geographical, relational and spiritual. The advice given to overcome barriers was practical and did not sound judgmental. Fowler discussed when it is appropriate to give advice and to assist, but also when to step back and allow the parents to have say. Showing grace to our children was also discussed and I think that is helpful advice for parents and grandparents. I would recommend this book.
