Grandparenting: a balancing act

Keith Condie
January 24, 2024

Keith and Sarah Condie reflect on the delight and privilege of becoming recent grandparents. They bring thoughtful suggestions to help weather the ups and downs of relationships, worldviews and the aging process. There is also a review of a collection of essays by Christian grandparents to encourage others in helping to model a life of faith.

"Being a grandparent and spending time with our grandchildren is not just good for us; it’s also good for them. Grandparents have a significant contribution to make to the lives of their grandchildren. In Paul’s second letter to his co-worker and friend, Timothy, Paul mentions Timothy’s grandmother by name, which provides a glimpse of this inter-generational relationship that can be significant enough to leave and build a legacy of ‘sincere faith’ (2 Timothy 1:5)."
