Although God intended us to age physically, there is a decided difference between aging and growing old. The 12 Keys to Spiritual Vitality helps readers accept their physical maturation by reveling in their mental and spiritual vitality. Author Richard P. Johnson gives readers the keys to agelessness by teaching them how to maintain positivity and youthfulness in spite of the physical aging process. This short course on the attitudes of agelessness helps readers find the value of thriving in the world rather than just surviving in it.
Aging is not the beginning of the end, but is part of God's eternal plan for human happiness. Through this book, readers will tap into the wisdom and grace that come with aging and discover the keys to maturing in the way God intended.
