Grandmothering: The Secrets to Making a Difference While Having the Time of Your Life

We rated this book:


Linda Eyre, a grandmother for twenty years, delights in using exclamation points to end her enthusiastic sentences. She uses no less than 10 in her three-and-a-half page introduction! As the mother of nine and grandmother of a multitude of babies sent from Heaven, she proudly proclaims herself a devoted Christian and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS).

There are references to the book being inclusive of all grandmothers, and yet, the majority of the information set forth has readily identifiable roots in LDS teachings. The chapters extol strong family structure, prayer, thankfulness, and coping with trials – especially when grandchildren are born with physical defects or life-threatening illnesses. Ms Eyre’s family examples and those of her close friends could have been devastating without strong family and faith. Each chapter ends with probing questions about the readers’ life and actions.

Grandmothering concludes with rules for gifting, hosting events, and recipes for crowds.

Those looking for a useful guide to fulfilling the role of being a grandmother should look elsewhere. This is nothing more than a religious tract in disguise.
