Book Review: How to Age Without Getting Old Author: Joyce Meyer

Everything is beautiful in its time. Life is a journey through beautiful and varied seasons, with a dynamic cadence and full of continued discovery. Embrace each season of your life and learn to live into it fully with grace and help from Joyce Meyer, as she shows you:

  • How to truly cast even your lifelong cares upon the Lord

  • How to live dynamically, embracing and delighting in the journey

  • How to embrace God's grace for this season

  • How to live abundantly as your body and mind change

God's timing is always perfect, and there is a distinct and meaningful purpose for this season of your life. Joyce says, "Only a fool thinks they can always do what they have always done." How to Age Without Getting Old equips us to become wise enough to embrace God's changing grace and the evolution of our calling to the next season of life.

Tell us a bit about yourself:

I'm a wife and mother to grown-up children and recently found myself catapulted into a new season and having to re-evaluate my life. I've loved and served Jesus all my life and He is my anchor. I want to continue reflecting His grace and love for others. I've rekindled my passion for working with words and taken up freelance writing again. I love knitting and crocheting creative items to give away as gifts and to help keep others warm. I'm an avid reader, armchair traveler, and want-to-be gardener.
