    Like Meyer, I'm in my seventh decade and desire to age without getting old. I want to have the mindset of aging gracefully with wisdom and purpose. This book provides the encouragement and information to do that well.

    Yes, there is your typical information on exercise, rest, and eating well. The strength of this book comes from the lessons Meyer has learned as she aged. A hard lesson she learned was the need to reduce her activity. A Type A person, she kept producing until her body betrayed her and she had to rest. Now she knows the necessity and challenge of increasing age also means reduced accomplishments.

    I like how Meyer helps us navigate our changing abilities and desires. She encourages us to come to grips with our limitations and not be afraid to ask for help. She also encourages us to realize the value of who we are, even when we are no longer doing what might have been giving us so much meaning in life. She helps us realize that passing on our role in ministry might be God's design. "We can let the loss of things we were once able to do depress us, or we can decide to be happy with what we can still do." (28) She even encourages us as we face the fear of being alone, revealing the beauty of trusting God.

    You don't have to be old to benefit from reading this book. There are insights from Meyer I wish I'd known years ago. We don't have to dread getting older. Read Meyer's book and get a glimpse of the exciting adventure of aging without getting older.

    Meyer: "We all age, but we don't have to get old." (138)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
