  • Aging With Grace


    Aging with Grace by the Power of the Gospel

    There are many blessings that come with age: retirement, grandchildren, travel, and life experience. Today’s culture, however, marginalizes old age, often portraying it as burdensome and hopeless. Many older women can feel like an encumbrance rather than a blessing to their friends and family members. In response to these struggles, Sharon Betters and Susan Hunt encourage women to find hope through both real-life and biblical accounts of women who rediscovered gospel-rooted joy later in life. In each chapter, readers will be encouraged as they experience afresh a gospel that is big enough, good enough, and powerful enough to make every season of life significant and glorious.

  • Value Of Wrinkles


    What we miss out on when we overvalue youth

    We’re so afraid of aging that we begin to devalue ourselves and others with each passing year. The phrase 30 years old incites panic. Seniors live in separate communities with little interaction with young people, and middle-aged people spend millions each year on anti-aging products.

    But what if we have it all wrong? Isabel Tom grew up living with grandparents and has spent over a decade of her career in end-of-life care. Today she:
    *teaches you what the elderly offer us that we cannot live without
    *challenges our cultural beliefs and practices that affect those who are aging
    *gives you practical insight on how to care for those older than you

    Plus, the book includes a section written from senior citizens entitled, I Wish You Knew . . . Age isn’t a curse, and the elderly among us deserve better. Will you be a part of the change? Continue Reading Value Of Wrinkles

  • Aging Gracefully


    How does the Bible instruct us as we grow older? Age gracefully, age wisely, age resolutely to the glory of God.

    There are few longings in my heart deeper than this: That God would let me live a godly, purposeful, dignified old age. I mean to encourage us both to age gracefully, to age wisely, to age resolutely to God’s glory.

    We are all aging. We are passing through time until we reach the end of our time. We soon learn that greater age brings greater sorrow but also greater joy, especially to those who are in Christ.

    To age gracefully we must age in Christ and for Christ. What does it look like to age gracefully? What do we need to be doing now to ensure we finish this race strong?

    These are questions for all Christians, young and old. Thankfully the Bible speaks clearly about how to age and how to age well. Join me in exploring what the Bible has to say about age and aging and learn how we can all hear those beautiful words, well done, good and faithful servant.
