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

Buchanan fosters empathy for and expresses the deepest concerns of the frail elderly without tap-dancing around the tough issues. Forty-two short, comforting devotionals offer much-needed spiritual encouragement to the once-vibrant who now cope with daily limitations and failing health. The devotions are written in the first person, allowing readers to speak directly to God about the pills they take, the walkers they need to be mobile, the ambulances that take away their friends. Supporting scriptures from the New Testament and Psalms are included with each meditation. Buchanan writes to the experiences of lifelong Christians as well as elderly non-believers who are thinking anew about God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Living with Purpose in a Worn-Out Body: Spiritual Encouragement for Older Adults?

God is good!  Jun 4, 2008
God is good! And God has blessed Missy Buchanan with the ability to relate what it is to be one of the frail elderly. My mother died last year at the age of 93, and reading through Missy's pages I am reminded again and again of how she endured those years of her failing health with such hope and grace.
I plan to share her book with the Stephen Ministers in our church, as several are caring for some of our older church members. It is perfect for this ministry.

Missy Buchanan has written a wonderful book. She has a very great understanding and feeling for us older folks. As I read the vaious pages I so very often found myself saying, "yes,yes. that is how it is.". I plan to re-read this book soon as it is so inspirng. It is the kind of book you wish wold just keep going on and on.

Our Patients and Staff love this!  May 20, 2008
I bought this book to use with my patients. I facilitate an outpatient gero-psych therapy group and also assist the social worker in the nursing home our facility operates. This book exceeded my expectations! One of our patients was so touched by it; we sent it home with her. We've purchased 10 more. We have the best discussions with our patients after praying and studying with this resource.
