Growing Older In God's Grace

SKU 14415
Growing older is a privilege not everyone can enjoy. For those who do reach their senior years, however, it is a period of time filled with both opportunity and significant challenges. Each period of our lives has its own unique opportunities, and our senior years are no exception. In this book, Larry Swaim addresses many of the opportunities and challenges of older age. As we grow older, each of us has our own experiences and stories to tell and the opportunity to be inspired by those older biblical characters who successfully traversed the often difficult path of growing older. Readers will find this book challenging, uplifting, and hopefully even inspiring, and that each chapter as it is read and studied will bring us a clear realization of the wonderful and unique privileges that we have as older Christians in God’s kingdom.
