GENERATION G - Advice for savvy grandmothers who will never go gray
Generation G is the name of my new book released by Thomas Nelson in March 2008. The book is about the joys of being a grandmother. It deals with humorous topics as well as serious ones - from choosing a name to changing grangmother images; from making a difference in the life of families to dealing with divorce, long distance granmothering, death, dying, and healing the generations. Never in the history of time have grandmothers had such an opportunity to impact the next generation by leaving a lasting legacy of love.
What is Generation G? Generation G is the new silver generation - women that are not only silver, but also savvy, seasoned, and sophisticated. We are a generation who, although aging, will never get old. Generation G women are vibrant, full of life, hip, involved, and ready to face the world head on. But most of all, Generation G women are godly women of faith who are passing on their faith to the next generation.
Generation G grandmothers are:
..... in process of becoming who we were created to be, ..... coming into our own fullness, ..... recognizing the moment in time and making a difference, ..... in a season of splendor, using this opportunity to better the world, ..... a lasting monument and reminder of the heritage before and the possibility of after, ..... a living legacy, giving that which no one else can give,
..... in the perfect position to give gifts that unlock life,
..... connected to God, the world, and one another,
..... true to our values, who share our faith, ..... reflecting kindness and integrity in everything we do, ..... encouraging and inspiring a new generation, ..... repairers of the walls, healers of the breach.
Savvy Grandmothers are:
..... vibrant, alive, in touch, and active in the world, ..... eager to try new things, continuing to learn, ..... discerning and shrewd - not easily fooled, ..... involved with grandchildren on many different levels, ..... may babysit or help out when needed, ..... are passionate about life, ..... adore their grandchildren, ..... may have careers or are just starting new careers, ..... may be pursuing their passion, ..... are seasoned, have lots of wisdom to share, but are discerning at the same time. ..... just love life and are meeting it head on!
