Editorial Reviews

"The Golden Years Ain't for Wimps is such a rewarding book. As I approach, or should I say, as I am in the golden years it is so refreshing to know I have not totally lost my mind. As I read each section it seemed more and more that I had written each one. Thank you, Karen for making aging not so scary."
--Shirley Longlois

"Karen O'Connor has done her usual excellent job of turning the missteps of maturity into chuckles. Karen shares her gift of writing humor into words of blessing for us all. I would recommend The Golden Years Ain't for Wimps to anyone who has ever mixed up or misunderstood what was said. That should cover any of us. The book would be an excellent gift to any of your friends who are still young at heart."
--Marilou Flinkman

    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!

    This 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.
