Aging in the Lord
Explores the more common changes associated with aging, such as adjusting to diminishing strength and health, reduced finances, retirement, coming to terms with limitations and the loss of those we love. It also examines some of the more positive aspects of aging: how it affects our use of time, leisure, friendship and faith. Most importantly, however, this book documents the power of our spiritual life and how it keeps our hearts open and our lives fulfilled at a time when life seems most complex.
