The Spirituality of Age
Here are a seven books published by Upper Room Books that have been very helpful to me in both finding God and purpose in aging, and also in helping those in nursing homes, or others having loved ones dealing with the losses and frailties of age.
Three books by Missy Buchanan: Living with Purpose in a Worn-out Body, Aging Faithfully, and Talking with God in Old Age.
Two books by Jane Marie Thibault, A Deepening Love Affair, and Ten Gospel Promises for Later Life.
Kathleen Fischer: Winter Grace
Richard Morgan: With Faces to the Evening Son
Missy Buchanan’s three books and Richard Morgan’s one are designed for daily meditation and prayer and make very good gifts for the elderly. They are all realistic, not saccharine, but uplifting and motivating.
