Finishing Well : A God’s-eye View Of Ageing$20.99Add to cart
This book seeks to give a ‘God-view’ and shows how the reader can ‘be’ and ‘do’ ageing well. It takes an honest and positive look at many aspects of our later years, including a successful retirement, enjoying later life, keeping going as a Christian, helping others to find a real faith and being positive even in adversity.
As we get older, some of us grow more frenetic in our anxiety to demonstrate that the force is still with us. Others withdraw, often quite abruptly. What is God’s view of ageing? The Bible has much to say, and many stories to tell, about those who did great things, those who did ordinary things well, those who prayed, those who used their gifts, those who suffered, those who went right to the end – and those who, in later years, got it absolutely wrong. How are we going to face the prospect of ageing? Will we subside, give up? Or shall we view retirement as a gift from God, an opportunity to reach out to others? Our older years are full of possibilities, not least of which is that of helping others find Christ.

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?
Middle Matters : Why That (Extra)Ordinary Life Looks Really Good On You$22.99Add to cart
The best-selling author of Never Unfriended opens up about midlife and what it feels like to have outgrown those teenage jeans, but finally grown into the shape of our souls.
Do you ever wonder how you woke up one day with all the responsibilities of a grown-up who secretly enjoys going to Costco, can no longer recognize the tween celebrities on the magazines at checkout, but is still surprised when a Starbucks Barista calls you “ma’am”–because your inside self is frozen in time from about twenty years ago?
So does Lisa-Jo Baker.
In this collection of bite-sized essays, Lisa-Jo Baker invites women to get a good look at their middles and gives permission to embrace them–beyond what the media, the mirror, the magazines, or our teenagers say. Through gutsy, beautiful storytelling, she admits out loud what most women are thinking about marriage, parenting, failure, and how badly we all want to buy those matching Magnolia Market mugs. Her delicious stories come from not being afraid of who she is (Your Age is Not a Dirty Word). Because she has finally grown comfortable in her own skin (The Scale is Not the Boss of You). She’s not asking you to seize the day, just to make sure you actually see it; for all its wildly ordinary glory (Sobbing in my Minivan Over Honor Roll). Because Lisa-Jo knows that the middle might be the best part of the love story of life, muffin top included.

How to have a retirement worth having

-love God, bear witness to the gospel, and serve your neighbors in retirement
If you’re retired or thinking about retirement and want a more purpose-filled retirement, this book is for you!

40 40 Vision$20.00Add to cart
At midlife, our perspective can become blurry. Midlife is a disruptive season where we collide with limitations on all sides. We recognize there is more of life in the rearview mirror than on the road ahead of us. We wonder if our lives so far have been worthwhile. We are uncertain about what lies ahead. But midlife is also an opportunity to recalibrate our vision. It’s a time to look back, take stock of our lives so far, and refocus on new dimensions of identity and calling. Peter Greer and Greg Lafferty offer insight for navigating midlife with fresh clarity and purpose. Drawing on the wisdom of the book of Ecclesiastes, they show how we can come to grips with the realities of who we are and what we should become in the years to come. In a world that can seem meaningless at times, God offers perspective that anchors us, renews us and propels us back into the world in meaningful mission and service. Rediscover who God has called you to be. And see the rest of your life with the clarity of 40/40 vision.
