Grandma―You Can Be a Game-Changer for Generations to Come. Today’s grandmas live in an ever-changing, fast-paced, highly-competitive, busier-than-ever world. We struggle with balance as we help our children manage theirs―grandbabies, work, exercise, staying healthy, and leading our growing families.
Chrys Howard and Shellie Tomlinson have more than 20 (as of now) grandchildren between the ages of newborn to 30 years old. Together they inspire grandmas with personal stories, learned insight, relevant Scripture, and a few laughs to encourage new and seasoned grandmas to press on.
Rocking It Grand includes four, easy-to-remember R’s in each of the 18 devotions: Remember it is a scripture passage to absorb; Read about it is a personal message from Chrys or Shellie; Reflect on it is a quote to highlight their message; and Rock it provides an action step to reinforce the topic. Become more confident and intentional with your grandchildren, your adult children, and their spouses; more grounded in your faith; and ready to rock your role as the best grandparent you can be.
About the Author
Shellie Rushing Tomlinson: I'm a farmer's wife and totally besotted grandmother of half a dozen beautiful grandchildren I fondly call The Super Six. I fell in love with storytelling as a child when my paternal grandmother regaled us with stories of what it was like to come to Louisiana from the hills of Appalachia and set up house in a tent with a dirt floor. On the other side of the family tree, my maternal grandfather, a people loving preacher, was known for using humor to draw his listeners to Jesus. It's safe to say the two of them marked me. Whether in my books, speaking before audiences, or dropping a segment on my podcast, I love nothing more than helping hungry hearts feast on Jesus through humor and storytelling. Look for The Story Table podcast wherever you listen to your favorites and come visit me at ShellieT.com.
