  • Maybe have it say to something about how they are a light in your life?? Kinda corny but all I can think of.

  • I think, she means writing a message inside the Bible. I've always like the song "I hope you dance" LeAnn Womack sings it, I think... Or there is a newer one by Rascal Flats - ??? I often use bits of song lyrics to say what, I cannot put into my own words...

  • Whatever you do don't write "here you are... at least I've done my part to keep you from going to hell"... because giving a Bible to someone who's not interested is basically saying just that... ;o(

  • Maybe something about sharing a bit of something that has been very special to you? That you pray as they read it they will grow in knowledge and truth?

  • Wow, I was only gone for a second... I think, its a sweet gesture to give a Bible to a grandchild. Or anyone...
    You maybe the one to plant that seed in them...
    Anyhow, the sing by Rascal Flats is My Wish
    Whatever you write will be a special memory to them and you...
    God Bless

  • You mentioned that they don't go to church. Are they not religious? If not, a bible isn't really an appropriate gift. If they are religious, you might try searching Pinterest for bible inscriptions. They always have tons of great quotes or inspirational sayings.

  • SassySue it may be a sweet gesture to you but I would be highly offended if my grandparent gave me a bible. It's great if you are Christian... not so great if you are not! Goddess Bless...

  • Same here, Crafty. My grandmother is Catholic, and very religious, but she would never buy me a bible. She and I couldn't have more opposite views, but she respects mine and I respect hers.
