David Roper served as a pastor for many years. Now, he and his wife, Carolyn, offer encouragement and counsel to pastoral couples through Idaho Mountain Ministries. David is author of more than a dozen books, including Every Day Is a New Shade of Blue, A Burden Shared, The God Who Walks Beside Us, and Seeing God, and is a regular and popular writer for Our Daily Bread. Nearly one million of his books are in print.
From middle age on, we tend to view the future with growing trepidation. What lies ahead? How much of our lives did we waste? Does who we are, and who we are becoming, still count in this rapidly changing world? With sensitivity, honesty, and insight, David Roper takes you to the heart of the questions every one of us must face.
Is the second half truly the best? It certainly can be. Inviting you to travel with him on his own "journey to maturity," Roper assures you that you are not winding down, but growing up into a new season of fruitfulness. And in God's economy, nothing--not even your sins and foolish choices--is wasted.
Calling you to both frank self-reckoning and joy, Teach Us to Number Our Days is an uplifting look at the possibilities that lie ahead.

PsalmPilotOrlando, FlAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Simple but not "simplistic"July 4, 2013PsalmPilotOrlando, FlAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased "Teach Us To Number Our Days" because I tend to collect devotionals and the price was unbeatable. I have started reading a chapter a night before bed. It is the perfect vehicle to bring my thoughts back to God at the end of the day. David Roper imparts a wisdom that comes with time and maturity and looks at aspects of life and aging which we may not otherwise want to look at. He examines the losses that come with aging and reveals the hidden blessings. I just started and am only on chapter 4 and it is requiring quite a bit of discipline not to read more than 1 chapter a night. I would compare this simple little book with Oswald Chambers' "My Utmost For His Highest" but not as deep or profound. That book (Chambers) can be a bit intimidating. Mr. Roper's book is easier to digest. It is simple without being "simplistic"

It is something that I have needed for just getting things right in my faith. I'm going to be marking my book up a whole lot Just to be able to page back to reread portions.
I'm also buying extra books to share.
