In a culture where so many people think of middle age as a downward slope into comfy sneakers and quiet, meaningless existence, we can redefine the second half of life, shaping it into decades of fulfillment, fun, strength, and purpose.

In our forties, fifties, and beyond, we're wrestling with new questions. Is this it? Did I do what I wanted to do in my life? Who am I now that my kids have moved out? Will my sagging skin eventually hang all the way down to my feet? We feel a little like the world has nudged us aside for the younger crowd.

But God still has much in store for us.

God doesn't bring us to the middle of our lives so we can park in front of the TV and binge-watch home makeover shows. There is no "midlife" to him! We are his gift to this world at every age and in every season, and it's time to embrace it like never before. Right now, we are the best we've ever been. We know more, we've done more, we've lost and loved more. We've figured out that all tweezers are not created equal for chin hairs and, best of all, we've crossed into a space of feeling more ourselves than ever before. These are exhilarating and empowering years.

In Midlife Battle Cry, bestselling author Dawn Barton will inspire you to:

  • realize that God isn't done with you (honestly, he's just getting started),
  • view midlife as a pivot point, the start of a bold and powerful season,
  • embrace who you are physically, spiritually, and emotionally,
  • learn to share your experiences and wisdom with a younger generation, and
  • accept that sometimes adding arch support to your cutest shoes is a really good idea.

Blending lots of humor, honesty, stories, and insights, Dawn will walk you through redefining the mighty second half of life. It's time to rediscover your passions, pursue your dreams—and know your actions can cause not just a ripple effect but a magnificent tidal wave.

About the Author

Dawn Barton followed a God calling to write Laughing Through the Ugly Cry, she left a thirty-year career in sales and marketing, despite being the #7 Sales Director in Mary Kay and seeing her own 10-foot smile on a Times Square billboard. Although released during a pandemic, Laughing Through the Ugly Cry became a bestselling success, garnering the prestigious ECPA Christian Book Award for New Author of the Year. Dawn speaks at conferences, churches, elevators, and just about anywhere anyone will listen to her thoughts on finding joy and humor in even the most difficult of circumstances. She is particularly passionate about The Retreat at Trinity, an intimate three-day experience designed to help women rediscover their God-given purpose. Retreats are held at Dawn's beautiful 23-acre home in Cantonment, Florida, where she is living the sandwich-generation dream with her husband, daughter, parents, mother-in-law, and too many animals to count.
