Tips for Writing Heavenly Messages from Grandmothers to Granddaughters
When a grandmother is unable to share a message herself, writing something in her voice can still make it feel like she’s present and providing advice and support.
If you would prefer to use our examples for inspiration and create your own special message, here are some tips to help get you started.
- Recall the words of wisdom that were her catchphrases. If grandma had a special saying, bible verse, or quote she often used, it might be the perfect message for a young woman to reread any time she needs it. Advice like “be kind and be true to yourself” might seem commonplace, but if it was something grandma actually said often, it’ll provide a sweet memory of her along with some encouragement.
- Recreate memories. For special occasions, think of days past when you shared them with your grandmother. This may spark the perfect message for today’s occasion.
- Ask those who knew her best. If you never had the opportunity to meet your grandmother, or even if you did, talking about her with others will help you to get to know her better and may provide inspiration for the perfect message.
