At its core, life is all about relationships. We all know the benefits of close and loving relationships between grandparents and their young grandchildren. What we often overlook, however, is the incredible richness and significance of these relationships for adult grandchildren and grandparents. And further, these relationships are not, and should not, be limited to those with only biological ties. These mentoring relationships can function just as well outside typical family boundaries. This book brings together stories about real-life connections that will move you. These stories are followed by some simple ways and tools to help kick-start these relationships. It is the author's hope that this book will inspire and encourage people of all generations to pursue these kinds of relationships, termed "SOULinks."

SOULinks: Pursuing Multi-Generational Significance based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
SOULinks was a wake-up call for me. It's not too late to pursue YOUR multi-generational relationships. SOULinks inspired me to reignite my own relationship with my 94 year old grandmother, Ruth. I have so many wonderful memories of time with her when I was a young girl but life and distance caused us to grow apart only sending Christmas cards and phone calls on birthdays. There are questions I want to ask her and stories I want to hear her tell. And I'm encouraging my children to engage with their grandparents more. It's too easy to get caught up in technology as a means to communicate - my children need to learn to engage with them at a different level. I didn't understand the importance of that until I read SOULinks. The stories are meaningful and I was moved by each of them. Thank you, Joan, for getting this message to us!
