Whispers of Love - My Thoughts
Many years ago, as a young adult, I became increasingly aware of the gaps between my grandmother’s way of life and mine. We loved each other, but we didn’t talk much about what was inside our hearts and how we dealt with day-to-day life. I wanted to do something to close that gap; to deepen our connection and find creative ways for us to relate to one another, given the generation gap.
Grandma was very traditional in her Christian belief system. We both operated within Christian beliefs; but our approaches were different. One language I knew Grandma related to was prayer. So I created a collection of prayers, one for each day of the year, for my grandmother and I to share through the course of the year. AlexisFaere.com
In my whimsical, delightful spirit, I found ways to relate to her, her daily joys and challenges that created some commonality between us. I used this vehicle to talk about feelings we all have as human beings and used my voice in conversation with God to talk about these things, as prayers.
My re-discovery of this treasure led me to realize there might be other people out there who could benefit from these sharings—in their relationships with their grandmas. So, I created this book for you!

Prayer Examples From the Book
My Grandparents were gracious, loving people, and well-established in their traditional Christian beliefs. I saw many gaps between their ‘way of life’ and the lives of their Grandchildren, myself included.
For most of their lives, I lived far away from my Grandparents. As they began to age, and as more permanent daily care was required for them, there was a part of me that became distinctly aware of that distance. It was a distance that somehow longed for closer proximity. I felt deeply about the changes they were facing, and I wanted to be supportive and loving in the best way I knew how.
My creative approach to this life experience was to write a daily ditty, if you will, that would give my Grandparents, my Grandma and my Grandpa, a short moment of personal time with me each day. I wanted those moments to be filled with understanding, spark joy, to be fun, and be introspective. I wanted to invite them into my inner world in a way that they could experience and appreciate.
Being the traditional Christians that they were, how better to reach them than to propose a daily prayer? They, after all, were religious in their own daily devotional and prayer time. It was their ‘language’ and their rhythm. It allowed me to lay a framework for us to be able to share with each other, to connect and in some way and respect one another in ways that we had not yet connected.
So, I set out to create a personal book for each of them, one for my Grandfather, and one for my Grandmother. The collection I’m offering here was the collection I offered to my Grandma.
Remember, this was written to be received by a person who had a belief system that was, shall we say, more stringent, perhaps, than my own. So, while the references to ‘God’, ‘Savior’, and so on, may not be your own personal favorite references, it is intended to be a prayer offered – however you may offer your own prayers, to whomever you may offer them.
Perhaps you’ve gifted this offering, as a Grandchild, to your own Grandmother. The point is that it is a moment of time, offered each day, for years on end, if wished; for a Grandchild to relate to a Grandparent in a kind, loving, supportive, and adventurous manner.
Enjoy these moments, and may your relationships grow and be blessed…
