Successful Retirement--Peace and Purpose Jun 19, 2008
This book is excellent for a transition from the workforce into retirement. As I begin retirement this summer this book is helping me to focus on developing a stronger relationship with the Lord, awakening areas of my life which have been dormant during working years and making the rest of my life a chance to explore new options to love and serve God more. This book has an excellent view on a Christian based retirement. It has practical and insightful advice. It is a real treasure.
