    The title of the chapters alone will make you want to read this book. Two of them are These Children Are Too Old To Be Mine and Who Is That In The Mirror! As you can see the author has a sense of humor! This book is filled with helpful advice as well as humorous stories to encourage you. I gave this book 5/5 stars. The author does a great job of making women not feel alone while going through those midlife years. She does this by sharing her personal stories and stories from her friends lives. Throughout the book she is consistent with pointing women to the Lord for dealing with difficult circumstances they may encounter while also dealing with the issues of middle age. I thought the book was an enjoyable read and would recommend it for all women, whether you are over 40 or not!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    I'm Too Young To Be This Old is aimed at older women who want to rediscover their purpose in God in mid-life. I think that I might be a little younger than the target age group for this book, because while some of it resonated, other parts were less relevant. Perhaps we all adjust to mid-life in different ways or perhaps I'm not quite there yet (please, let that be so!).

    As with any good self-help book, each chapter of I'm Too Young to Be This Old finishes with a series of questions. Readers will no doubt benefit from looking up the related Bible verses and answering the questions honestly. But many readers, myself included, are still in denial regarding the possibility of aging, so happily disregard these opportunities for personal reflection.

    There is a lot of useful information in I'm Too Young to Be This Old, including a potentially useful list of the symptoms of menopause, along with a suggestion that a woman suffering these symptoms should consult their doctor, as many symptoms can be managed and aren't simply an inevitable sign of aging that can't be helped.

    While I'm Too Young to Be This Old is a good book for Christian women in this empty-nester age group, it is a reprint of the book originally published in 1997. It has been revised and updated, so it now suggests maintaining relationships with distant grandchildren via Skype. However, other areas could have benefited from more revision. For example, the humorous discussion about cosmetic surgery completely ignores Botox. She also mentions the smoking section of an airplane. Was it that recently that people could smoke on planes? Overall, sound but not exceptional.

    Thanks to Harvest House and Netgalley for providing a free ebook for review.
