We hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend celebrating Mother’s Day with all the mothers in your life. Here at Wisconsin Family Action, we believe moms should be celebrated every day. 

One group of mothers that sometimes gets overlooked is grandmothers. Today, with family, work schedules, and the business of life, grandparents often step in to help directly with their grandkids. Celebrating grandmothers this month with special attention and expressions of love and gratitude helps the next generation cultivate a deeper appreciation for their extended family and family history.

Grandmothers can play such a special role in the lives of their grandchildren, relating stories of their mother or father growing up, reinforcing family values, passing on family traditions, and creating lifelong memories for their grandchildren. One of the best things families can do is to be sure their children stay connected with extended family members, especially grandparents.

We know that Biblically, grandmothers had a tremendous influence on their lineage, so much so that Paul even named Timothy’s grandmother, Lois, as a woman of “sincere faith,” which she passed on to her daughter and grandson, who later became Paul’s companion and partner in missions.

“I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.”2 Timothy 1:5

What an incredible testimony of one grandmother’s generational impact. Lois was used by God to instill Biblical values in Timothy who became a vital instrument of the Lord later in his life. The role of grandmothers and mothers in cultivating Godly values in their children cannot be understated – and it is not through words alone, but their lifestyle and daily actions. 

This week, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating the grandmothers in your life who have encouraged you, prayed over you, and instilled Biblical values in you from a young age.

Our generous friends have offered us a $20,000 “Flash Match” campaign to help honor the mothers and grandmothers in our lives this month. When you donate in their name you will have the opportunity to leave a special memory of your grandmother in the comment box, which we will share on social media. 

Please consider giving “double honor” to your grandmothers today, so Wisconsin Family Action can continue to fight for family values in our beautiful state. CLICK HERE to donate.
