A Generous Lap: A Spirituality of Grandparenting

A Generous Lap: A Spirituality of Grandparenting

In this charming and inspiring work, Kathy Coffey reflects on the spiritual dimensions of grandparenting—how this stage of life may expand our hearts, enlarge our humanity, put us

in touch with fundamental aspects of our selves, and allow opportunities for a more generous and fruitful life.

She notes: “God uses this period in human life to transform us. The most cantankerous, self-absorbed jerks suddenly discover a sweeter side. The stern start spoiling relentlessly. The introverts pull out the photos, cute sayings, and stories. Those who thought their physical ailments were paralyzing sprint after the toddler heading for the street or hoist aging bodies up the jungle gym when a grandchild quails at the terrifying steepness of the slide. As ‘the child grows in wisdom, age, and grace,’ we get to marvel, and gradually grow into God’s loving self.
