Publisher's Description

Getting older is portrayed in the media as something to dread! We use Botox, color our hair, dress younger, go on special diets…anything we can do to put off the inevitable. But rather than fearing aging, it’s time to embrace it, says popular speaker Karen O’Connor. We can handle the aging process and its blessings and burdens with grace, gratitude and grit! By looking at seven areas of life–Faith, Family, Friends, Finances, Fitness, Food, and Fun–O’Connor shows you how getting older can mean getting better! Learn how to "raise your happiness quotient," change your attitude and discover the delights of being 50-plus.

Author Bio

KAREN O'CONNOR has written more than 50 books, including Squeeze the Moment, Help, Lord! I’m Having a Senior Moment! and Help, Lord! I’m Having a Senior Moment—Again! She is a popular speaker, instructor and consultant who has appeared on many national and international television and radio programs, including The 700 Club and the Sally Jessy Raphael Show. She is the recipient of The San Diego Writers Guild 1997 Author of the Year Award, and the 2002 Mount Hermon Special Recognition Award. She and her husband, Charles, have five children and make their home in Watsonville, California.





Karen O'Connor has written over 50 books, including Squeeze The Moment and Help Lord! I'm Having A Senior Moment, both of which focus on aspects of aging. Having been born in 1938, she is living what she advocates to other senior moment individuals, and I happen to be one of them, edging towards the 62 mark this year.
Mrs. O'Connor has divided this book into seven sections of Faith, Family, Friends, Food, Fitness, Finances, and Fun. Each of these subjects she supports with six clarifying explanations, ending with how to put them into perspective with grace, gratitude, and grit. She identifies the above as better ways to face the aging process as God intended, rather than as a grimalkin, grouch, or greenhorn (these three are my take). Obviously, the author has experienced much in her 69 years to grant her the wisdom and wit she pens in her gracious understanding of growing older.
Such subtopics as "Row, Row, Row Your Own Boat," "Oxygen for the Soul," "Just Desserts," "Stay-at-Home Vacations," "Daffodilly," and "The Good New Days," should give readers over 50 an avid interest in opening this book and perusing it for a deeper understanding of where they are as senior citizens and where they hope to be.
The author has set the scene for an easier transition to accepting what God has had in mind for us all along--to be grizzled, gracious, and groovy in our process of aging, despite the hype for everlasting youth. – Sharon I. Rideout, Christian Book
