Editorial Reviews

"O'Connor's wit shines in this light look at aging."
--Kimberly Johnson

"Karen O'Connor writes with gentle humor and genuine insight about the blessings and difficulties of aging. Gettin' Old Ain't For Wimps! is targeted at the senior citizen, but there is not a person alive who won't find a chuckle on every single page. The gift edition pairs Karen's hilarious prose with fresh, humorous photographs in an irresistible package. I recommend this book to everyone in our congregation who is ‘of a certain age'--or has a relative they love who is!"
--Rene Schlaepfer, senior pastor, Twin Lakes Church, Santa Cruz, California

--Annetta Dellinger

She takes the inevitable effects of aging and shines God's love, wisdom and humor upon them. The beautiful photographs and wonderful stories bring such joy to the reader. This is a book that I will have on my coffee table for a very long time. I'm planning on buying several copies of this beautiful book to give to my friends and relatives."
--Sandy Victor

"The author has a knack of writing with an upbeat tone and ranges from the silly to the profound, with short personal stories illustrating aspects of aging. You may want to buy copies as gifts for those people walking the path of aging with you. You will find many charming photos here coupled with cute stories and quotes. You know the saying ‘if you don't laugh you will cry'; well, O'Connor points us in the direction of laughing, which is very welcome."

"This book, with stories that will make you smile, is perfectly put together.  From the well-appointed quotes to the heart touching stories to the beautiful pictures, I was in heaven reading each page.  It makes a great gift--that is if you can give it away!"
--Lane Jordan, Lane Jordan Ministries

"I was just delighted to receive Gettin' Old Ain't for Wimps! I'd been feeling a little down about the wrinkles and age spots, but this little gift book helped me decide to embrace this new time of my life. I highly recommend it as a birthday or other kind of gift for those entering their senior years."
--Janet Holm McHenry, author and speaker

"I first read Karen O'Connor's Gettin' Old Ain't for Wimps a few years ago and loved it. Now that this delightful book has been re-released in a new format, I love it even more! I can't recommend this book enough--for yourself and/or for anyone you know who might be hitting that age where ‘wimpy' no longer cuts it. I for one have arrived there and so appreciate the humorous encouragement I receive from reading this excellent book."
--Kathi Macias, speaker and author of Deliver Me From Evil and Red Ink

"I had so many good laughs as I identified with most of the book! Karen has a wonderful talent to write about a not-too-pleasant subject (aging--especially if you are there) and keeping it in perspective and also truthful with a chuckle. I couldn't put the book down once I started reading. This is another great book from a very dear writer."
--Penelope Carlevato, penelopesteatime.com
