As a grandma who believe the Bible, when it tells me God created the world upon which I live and everything on it, I believe. There are reasons I believe . . . first of all, I believe the Bible to be true. Secondly, when I look at the world, and everything on it, I see design, purpose, intention - for it all to have happened from chaos or chance seems impossible to me. I believe, and I want the ones I love to believe as well.
But, more and more children are growing up thinking the world upon which they live, and everything on it, just happened on its own - without God. And, when they believe this, it does not take long for them to stop believing God is real and the Bible is true; telling them the Bible teaches us God is real and He created and designed everything, is often not enough reason any longer for them to believe.
As grandmas (and grandpas/parents) who believe, we do not have to fear science (after all God created science). We do not have to be unable to show solid reasons the ones we love are able to believe God is real and the Bible is true. These solid reasons are all around us on this amazing world where we live. Design, intention, and purpose show us, and prove, God is real! So, how do we share this with the children we love?
