Where To Go From Here?

I’ve devoted most of my posts to revealing the development of my faith through the difficult journey of my life.  Then, in August of last year, my path shifted and this blog had to be put on hold for awhile.

Next week, my posts will continue to tell my story.  If you haven’t read what’s happened in my journey to faith, they are all labeled The Journey.  Just select the link and scroll to the bottom of the posts under that label. From there, you can read the story in order.  What will you find?  My experiences with teenage pregnancy, domestic violence, divorce, single parenting, and chronic illness.  There’s a lot there, and I guess God isn’t through with me yet, which brings up the question:

What’s next?

I hope to conclude with the planned posts for my journey sometime in the first half of this year.  Then, I feel strongly that this blog should focus on my new path:  parenting grandchildren.

If you are a grandparent raising grandchildren, on your own or with your adult children in the house, please comment below or contact me privately through the information page on my website.  I know there are a lot of us raising our grandchildren, so if you are interested in writing an occasional post, answering some survey questions, or sharing your own experiences with me, I want to hear from you!

For those of you not in this situation, I hope you will continue to stay with us on this new journey.  I guarantee you know someone who is raising grandchildren.  You might discover new insights or ways to encourage them.   AND, if you know someone raising their grandchildren, would you share this post with them?  Thank you!

  1. You’ll be meeting a major need in your blog shift. More and more grandparents are back in the full time parenting role. A community of support in this are will help mend broken hearts, be a resource go-to-spot, and a spiritual guide for strength in the serve.

    Write on!

    • Carolyn, the need for this has become more and more obvious to me as I’ve stumbled along this path. I look forward to what this blog can do in the lives of grandparents and their grandchildren.

  2. Barbara,
    I commit to pray for you as you shift your blog focus. God often takes us on a journey to help prepare our hearts and minds to step into HIS purpose. If we do not have grandchildren it is important that we stand with those on this journey. Praying God will call your friends and church family to stsnd with you on this journey. It would be helpful to share how others can support and assist grandparents taking on this responsibility.

  3. Barbara – not only am I parenting grandchildren, but that is one of the top 3 topics I speak and teach about so I am thankful for you and encourage you and pray for you and will be happy to do whatever it takes to support you – cheers, sister!
