It Is Impossible to Spoil Grandchildren: and Other Important Facts for Grandparents and Parents, Too! - I'm Giving One Digital Copy Away!

I am very happy to say, It Is Impossible to Spoil Grandchildren: and Other Important Facts for Grandparents and Parents, Too! is available on Kindle! This book is my book - I'm the author, and yes, the three adorable boys on the cover are my three, sweet boys! Today I'm going to share with you what my book is about and announce a giveaway . . . of course!

It Is Impossible to Spoil Grandchildren: and Other Important Facts for Grandparents and Parents, Too!
Author - Lynda Freeman (me!!!)

First, a little "inside information" about this book. For years I have written Sunday school curriculum, children's storybooks and Bible Adventures. Curriculum and these types of books come easy to me and I have written a number of them (curriculum for VeggieTales, SuperBook, Calvary Church Grand Rapids, Deeper in 4 Children and the Manner's Mentor) - who knows??? Maybe one day the children's books and Bible Adventures will be published, too!


However; writing an actual, real book about something of substance is something I did not think I would ever do. I didn't think I'd be able to write an entire book and definitely thought I'd never be able to think of a fitting title. Then, one morning back in January,  I actually woke up with the title for a book in my mind and wrote it in two weeks! It is now available on Kindle (follow the link by clicking on the book or title) and makes a fun read for new grandparents, those who have been grandparents for some time, those who just learned they will become grandparents as well as for parents.


If you have ever checked out my other blog, grandma's cookie jar, you know I LOVE being a grandma! You know I find great delight and joy in spending time with my three grandsons. In It Is Impossible to Spoil Grandchildren: and Other Important Facts for Grandparents and Parents, Too! I write about some of my, "sweet grandson stories" and share how important it is to pass on a heritage of faith to our grandchildren. If we are grandparents, we may think our "job" is over, since we raised our own children. But, our "job" is not over. If we have grandchildren and want them to make the choice to love, know and walk with Jesus, we need to be focused and intentional about helping our grandchildren understand how much Jesus loves them and how they can love Him back! In 
It Is Impossible to Spoil Grandchildren: and Other Important Facts for Grandparents and Parents, Too! you'll find ideas, Scripture prayers, the thoughts of a grandma and her commitment to see her three sweet boys choose to love, know and follow Jesus!

I love being grandma, absolutely love my grandsons and fully believe how important it is for grandparents to be focused and intentional about passing on a heritage of faith. It is my hope It Is Impossible to Spoil Grandchildren: and Other Important Facts for Grandparents and Parents, Too! will help other grandparents with some ideas about how they can do this, too.

  1. My granddaughter Emily (3 1/2 years old) came by the children's ministry area Sunday after church to see if I could join her and her mom for lunch. Of course, I agreed, but had to finish "closing up" before I could leave. She proceeded to pretend to be me, grabbing a stack of post-it-notes and a pencil and "writing" out notes. She continued to be KK (their name for me as grandmother) until our food was served! Such fun!
