Today’s guest is Donne Davis. Ever since she became a grandma she’s been on a mission to connect with other grandmas and explore what it means to be a modern grandma. “We’re in a new era of grandmotherhood,” she says. “We have more time, technology, and talent. My mission is to inspire grandmas to tap into all these resources so we’ll keep growing along with our grandchildren and children and stay connected with them.”
She founded the GaGa Sisterhood 18 years ago as a social network for enthusiastic, creative, caring women who indulge in the joy of being grandmothers. Members meet during Zoom meetings and learn from guest speakers and stay connected through blog posts, social media and email newsletters.
She is the author of When Being a Grandma Isn’t So Grand: 4 Keys to L.O.V.E. Your Grandchild’s Parents
