Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A popular Christian author (40 books, many bestsellers) shares a collection of heartwarming stories about getting old. The topics range from marriage, sex, and health issues to friendship, exercise, and mental clarity—all of them expressed with humor and humility. After each story, the author, who is in her 70s, offers a reflection in the form of a Bible verse and a prayer in which she affirms the primacy of her relationship with God and talks to Him about her approach to each old-age challenge. Though the author is clearly reading the material, her voice is enjoyable, and she sounds like she’s having a good time. And while her spirituality is overt, she’s so laid-back about it that it adds to the enchantment of getting to know her."
