During a season of life when grandmothers appear to lose so much—our hair, our health, even our pets—God gifts us with a child. We have another opportunity to view life through the eyes of a child, and as a result, each new day overflows with possibilities.

This time around, we are not new moms, perched on the edge of a sometimes frightening and challenging path into the unknown. Now, we are life veterans. We bring wisdom, experience and a clear sense of what is important. A gift of time to a grandchild becomes a gift we give ourselves, and the season of grand parenting also ushers in a new stage of our personal journey with Jesus.

Faith Footprints provides inspirational Scriptures, devotional thoughts, and prayers for grandmothers, along with simple “Christian lifestyle” activities to do with a grandchild. Let your faithwalk leave footprints in the sand for your grandchild to follow. Better yet, walk beside your grandchild and grow in faith together.


“I am finding Faith Footprints...very stimulating and providing great opportunities for conversation and reflection.”

“The best part of being a grandmother is the opportunity to leave a legacy. …That’s why Mary Manz Simon’s new book appealed to me as soon as I saw it. Faith Footprints with My Grandchild: 52 Devotions, Activities, and Reflections would make a great Mother’s Day gift for any grandmother who wants to leave a faith legacy." “…Grandmothering can be challenging at times. Mary acknowledges rocky family relationships, resistant grandkids, and every grandmother’s own personal imperfections, and she encourages us all to persevere with faith and grace.”
