- the significance of life after a certain age
- joy in new friendships and experiences
- adventures still ahead
- purpose and meaning on deeper levels
- appreciation for God's design and direction
By celebrating the little things in life, such as the ability to recall any anecdote with clarity, O'Connor leads readers to rest in the bigger wonders of faith and purpose.
Charlotte A.5 Stars Out Of 5June 13, 2008Charlotte A.THE GOLDEN YEARS AINT FOR WIMPS is a refreshing treat! Karen OConnors writing not only brings funny and embarrassing moments, but doses of timely wisdom. She offers scriptures and prayers that bring perspective to older readers. For example, Easy Does It (page 92) touches on common communication problems, but ends with workable advice. OConnor helps those in their Golden Years stand taller and try new adventures as they follow Gods guidance. This book makes a wonderful birthday gift!
Patricia Chadwick5 Stars Out Of 5March 12, 2008Patricia ChadwickThis is a book of short stories that takes a humorous look at aging. Author Karen O'Connor, a senior herself, shares the lighter side of maturing. I found myself laughing out loud! I am going to share this book at a senior's group where I minister in my town.
