My name is Elaine, but five of my favorite people call me Gramma Mac!
An award-winning writer, author, blogger, and columnist, I love to celebrate grandparenting, and have been doing so since my my first grandchild – now a teenager – was born. To read more of my “back story,” click here.
I am passionate about discovering and sharing resources with other grandparents, empowering them to intentionally create memories and build relationships with their grands.
Please share your comments, questions, and favorite grandparenting ideas. Let’s build a community.

Remember, you’re not alone in this journey. There are more than a billion grandparents worldwide, so guess what? You’re ONE IN A BILLION.
