A social worker from New England . . . a Texas airline pilot . . . a homemaker from California . . . a lawyer who has lived everywhere . . . a quilter in Oregon. What do they have in common? All are on the adventure of their lives.
Like many others among the 77 million baby boomers, these men and women don't want to retire from contributing when they retire from their careers. So they are using their time, skills, and resources to make a difference. Written in conjunction with Finishers Project, an umbrella organization that encompasses more than 100 mission organizations, this book will help baby boomers discover a second-half adventure that fits them and counts for eternity.
Marta Hoelscher5 Stars Out Of 5January 24, 2010Marta HoelscherI loved this book! I've been really searching for what I'm to do with my time and energy since I am back at home and this book gave me some excellent ideas! Many of you know that I've been in the nursing home for the past two years and have recently moved back out into the world, after some life changing events. I've been struggling to not just fill my time, but to fill my time with something of substance.This book was an eye opener as to how many opportunities there are for those who are entering the 'second-half' of our lives. While the book is definitely written from a Christian perspective, there are any number of activities that would appeal to anyone looking for a way to go out and change the world even in a small way. I've already gone to The Finishers Project and filled out the questionair and I encourage all of you to do the same. We all have skills and passions that could be put to use in ways we can't imagine!Please consider this book as a gift to everyone you know that is approaching that 'second-half' of their life...and even those who have been in it for a time. It would also make a wonderful addition to the library of every Pastor, both for himself and to aid in counseling others.This is a great resource for planning your 'second-half adventure'!
