Have You Considered What God's Plans Are for You?

As you look at what might be ahead in the next year, the next five years, even the next fifteen or twenty, there's one fact you absolutely can count on: life will change. How can you set priorities, seize opportunities, and make sure that you live and love well? Veteran Christian counselor and bestselling author H. Norman Wright says now is the time not to "just let life happen" but rather to ask, "What's next, Lord?" and then to step forward wholeheartedly.

Wright has packed this book with crucial questions, straightforward steps, and wise guidance. It will help you make transitions that enable you to embrace and enjoy everything God has given to you and designed for you. You'll discover more about

• Parenting through the never-ending seasons of "kids" at all ages
• Maximizing the second half of marriage or singleness
• Retiring, restructuring, or redirecting your work life
• Finding and fulfilling purpose throughout the coming years
• Leaving the legacy you want to leave
• Navigating life's "last chapter."

Discussion questions are included for you and your spouse, a couple of close friends, or a small group.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Therapist and trauma specialist Wright (psychology, emeritus, Biola Univ.) believes that "cresting the hill" no longer means being "over the hill." Writing primarily for baby boomers and beyond, he discusses ways to navigate the changes that happen to everyone—e.g., aging parents, job loss or change, retirement home living—in terms of opportunities for growth. He stresses the necessity of modifying outlook and planning for a path different from what many expect. Wright's book will be a hit with religious readers but will require some mental modification for nonbelievers.
