Living with Purpose in a Worn-Out Body: Spiritual Encouragement for Older Adults by Missy Buchanan

Spiritual Encouragement for Older Adults

Birthed out of real-life experience, Living with Purpose in a Worn-out Body is a big does of authentic spiritual encouragement for frail elderly who struggle to find purpose a the end of their lives. These devotionals addressed to God raise in prayer the many concerns of the frail elderly and provide opportunities to reminisce and reflect on their blessings.

Each devotional offers the following:

· Easy-to-read print
· Reader-friendly format
· Comfortable, nonacademic language
· A first-person address to God
· Brief supporting scriptures from the New and Old Testaments

My Review:
This slim booklet, written in first-person, accurately reflects the fears and concerns of those who are nearing the summit of their lives. Bible verses follow each topic to positively encourage the reader.

Some of the topics are: "Power chair," "Late-in-life friends," "Good night's sleep," "Sensible shoes," and "Breathing." Most elderly will easily connect to the truths contained in this small volume.

Thank you to Audra Jennings at B&B Media Group for my copy.
