 If every child were raised with a grandmother like Judith Robl’s we’d live in a far better—and maybe a more interesting–world. Mrs. Robl’s grandmother taught important lessons with love and firmness.

Robl writes forty-one delightful stories about growing up under her grandmother’s constant lessons. Each one-page story ends with a brief, appropriate prayer.

Her grandma was consistent, honest, opinionated and kind. This elderly woman obeyed and taught about God’s directions for a successful life. She worked hard, was a life-long learner and loved deeply.

Judith Robl never forgot what Grandma’s lips spoke and actions demonstrated. Robl brings her grandmother  alive on the book’s pages. We admire Mrs. Robl’s grandma as a woman we’d like to have known.

  Artist Audrey Jeanne Roberts added warm, enchanting designs to each page. The artwork matches the beauty of the writing. She says of the book, “Judith did a marvelous job on capturing wisdom that is fading from our culture.”

So true.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.

    Thank you for giving Audrey Jeanne the credit she is so rightfully due. Her artwork makes the book the beautiful thing it is. I have no words to describe how thrilled I was to see her artwork for this manuscript.

      Your writing is as wonderful as the pictures, Judith. Audrey Jeanne says she’s giving copies to her four children for Easter. What a great idea that I plan to follow.
      Love you,
