Who said the “third age” was about putting your feet up? Who said grandmothers were all elderly? The challenge of being a grandmother can demand more from us than we could possibly have envisaged – but it also brings unimaginable joy and delight. With contributions from many Catholic grandmothers from a range of backgrounds, Being a Catholic Grandmother is packed with first-hand accounts and insights from grandmothers who have been there, done that and got the t-shirt. Above all, this book is designed to give practical advice and tips to help grandmothers to learn ways of managing the role and coping with the challenges of grandmotherhood. It should also help the matriarch to discover a deep sense of God’s presence through their growing relationship with their grandchildren.
