Each meditation begins with a concern, question, or insight expressed in the author's conversations with people ages 75-100. The author provides psychological and theological insights, welcoming doubt, mystery, and the emotions that accompany aging. She invites readers to practice their faith by reflecting on some aspect of their life or undertaking an action. A brief prayer ends each meditation.
This book will help older readers feel less alone as they hear about others who have walked a similar path. Readers who are caregivers will be moved to empathize with the spiritual, emotional, and other challenges their loved one faces. Also an excellent resource for those who minister with the elderly.
