Overview As our society faces an increasingly older population, this remarkable new book reveals that aging is not something to dread but is a process rich with joy and blessing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Winter Grace: Spirituality and Aging?
How to develop grace while dying Sep 14, 2007
I was disappointed with WINTER GRACE. It is not original in concept--mostly re-hashed opinions of well known authorities, and page after page of quotes--on related subjects covered myriad times before.
All the author personally tells her readers, they already know: that they will experience suffering, dependency, frailty, loss, grief... And that death is inevitatable.
Her personal opinion, as a professional counselor on spirituality, and how to develope grace while "waiting," is sadly lacking.

Aging and Spirituality May 17, 1999
This book is a "must-read" for anyone fifty -years- old or for anyone approaching the age of fifty. Kathleen Fischer deals with a variety of topics concerning aging, and she most effectively relates these topics to the larger and more holistic life-issue of spirituality. Some of the topics include sexuality and sex, the deaths of friends, the passing of wisdom on to the next generation. Fischer offers insights into deepening one's own spiritual life, and she helps the reader understand the importance of deepening this relationship.
Winter Grace is an easy-to-read, yet thought-provocking book. As a baby boomer, I appreciate her wisdom and have sent this book to boomer friends.
