I have known Jerry and Shirley Rose for many years and appreciate all God has done through their ministry. They are to be commended for their perseverance in building the Total Living Network into an
internationally recognized media ministry that has reached millions around the world. And now as they expand to include ministry to the aging population through Significant Living, I have no doubt that God will continue to use the Roses to reach millions more.

Shirley and Jerry Rose have inspired us with their "significant living," and their book will inspire you to do the same. All of us can make a difference in the world during the second half of life, just as this amazing couple has done!
Ken Wales, Author, Producer of the film Amazing Grace, the television series Christy, and numerous other productions
As the pages of the Bible unfold, it is the older men and women who provide inspiration, wisdom, and knowledge for Gods people, especially during times of crisis. Never before has our youth-driven culture needed the experience of mature Christians in our troubled world as it does today! In their book, Significant Living, the Roses show us the way to personal significance that can make an impact for eternity.

Jerry and Shirley are longtime friends whom I love and admire. I had the privilege of working under Jerry when he was president of the National Religious Broadcasters. Jerry has stayed the course for the
cause of Christ since I have known him. Jerry and Shirleys lives have been used significantly for the furtherance of our Fathers kingdom.

This important book, Significant Living, provides the answers to the true meaning of significance and the surprisingly simple path to finally fulfilling the heart-cry of mature individuals: to be significant for the kingdom and do significant things for the greater good.Shirley and Jerry Rose know how. Theyve led a life of significance their entire lives. And theyre not about to quit now! Instead, theyre putting the pedal to the metal in their second half. In this book, they freely and joyfully share with readers their "life recipe" for significance. Its a sensible and rewarding recipe that you can modify to successfully create your own, unique version of significance. Blending the ingredients of their personal and professional experiences, deep faith, beautiful multicultural family, many service projects, big dreams, humor, keen sense of adventure, and some very helpful action steps, theyve written a masterful book that will change and enhance your life…as it has changed and enhanced mine. If you read just one book on the topic of "significance," I heartily recommend this one!

Thank you for writing this book. I cant think of a better couple to hang out with while we all grow older and wiser. (I will get wiser, right?)
Chonda Pierce, Comedian, author, recording artist
Everybody is significant, if for no other reason than they are created in the divine image. But not everyone recognizes or appreciates this fact, and accordingly, too many people allow feelings of insignificance
to dominate them. This is particularly true when people confront their advancing years. Jerry and Shirley have gone through this, embraced their aging with great grace, courage, determination, and humor, and distilled their findings into Significant Livinga book that will encourage, inform, and bless.
Stuart and Jill Briscoe, Ministers at Large, Elmbrook Church, and "Telling the Truth" Media Ministries
Significant Living is packed with practical advice for those of us over fifty. I celebrate this milestone birthday this year and am so thrilled that Jerry and Shirley have written a book packed with so much encouragement, humor, and practical help! The Roses are wonderful role models for making the most of lifes second half. Everyone who wants to make the rest of life the best of life should get a copy!
