Aging Faithfully : The Holy Invitation Of Growing Older$16.99Add to cart
Every new year of life is an undiscovered country.
There’s no map through our later years, and the new terrain can bring anxiety and uncertainty, when our souls are more preoccupied with what has been lost than what is to come. While our physical stamina, independence, and career fulfillment decline, each of these losses invites us to grow, inward and upward. God calls us to let go of our need for fulfillment and embrace the gift of fruitfulness so that we might be transformed in this final season of our lives.
In Aging Faithfully, spiritual director Alice Fryling guides our walk with God in a vulnerable time, listening for his voice and responding. As we age, something unusual happens: God renews us from within, when we allow him access. As we accept our responses to the aging process, we grow closer to God and experience his grace.
Are you open to increased hope, joy, and transformation? Would you like to grow in life-giving ways–no matter the circumstances? Do you have the courage to let go of former ways of thinking to receive love and life in new ways?
We all age differently, and God calls each of us to new spiritual birth as we mature. Whether you are approaching the beginning, middle, or end of your senior years, you are invited. Come and be transformed.
Aging With Grace$18.99Add to cart
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.
Uncommon Guide To Retirement$15.99Add to cart
How to have a retirement worth having
There’s a lot of advice about retirement out there. Some try to tell you retirement can and should be a perpetual vacation. Others might speak about retirement as a time for your second career. And there’s some truth in all of it, but there’s a lot wrong with it too.
An Uncommon Guide to Retirement gives you a new way of looking at retirement (that doesn’t reject the good from the old ways of doing things). In it, Jeff Haanen explores ideas like Sabbath, calling, and purpose, and teaches you how to:
-reframe conversations around the body and healthcare decisions
-understand your family system, set boundaries, and leave an intentional legacy
-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!
Aging Gracefully$7.99Add to cart
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.”
