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.”
The author writes from her heart. She’s founder of Reflected Life Ministries, and is a speaker, a mentor, a loving grandmother and a great-grandmother. She talks to women about prayer, forgiveness and drawing closer to God. Her speeches reflect real-life family journeys both wonderful and life-shaking.
Audrey Jeanne Roberts loves connecting with real women in a way that can bring beauty, joy and humor to their daily lives. She designs artistic item for homes and gifts. Her blog is as beautiful as the artwork she created for Judith Robl’s book.
The outstanding quality of As Grandma Says makes this book a marvelous gift. Consider the book for special friends and those of a younger generation You’ll also treasure a copy of your own.
