In Aging Honorably and Happily evangelist and author Frank Shivers provides inspiration, challenge and encouragement to help you embrace the Golden Years optimistically, courageously, productively, uprightly and joyfully. An underlying premise of the book (despite the cultural view) is that growing older brings incredible opportunities, indescribable joys and inexpressible contentment despite wrenching difficulties if lived as unto the Lord. Frank’s inclusion of humor in each chapter is potent ‘medicine’ for the soul

Billy Graham voiced the experience of many when he stated, “All my life I've been taught how to die, but no one ever taught me how to grow old." Odds are the same is true with you. This book’s intended purpose, at least to some measure is to teach you how to grow old honorably and happily. Within its pages inspirational and instructional subjects are included such as finishing life strong, rethinking retirement from a Christian’s perspective, victory over fear in aging and dying, coping with the death of a spouse, caregiving to a spouse, estate documentation, leaving a legacy for your children/grandchildren, the benefit of exercise, things that matter most in our last years, and mentoring the younger.

Aging Honorably and Happily teaches one how to grow old spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Included with each chapter are two or three jokes to bring a chuckle and smile (Just for Laughs). Solomon states that “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” (Proverbs 17:22). These jokes certainly will be the most enjoyable, if not the most beneficial medicine on the nightstand.
