Item description for Younger Than I Used To Be: Celebrating Maturity by Wesley Tracy...
Overview You've reached the age when you can wave good-bye to parent-teacher conferences, second mortgages, and third jobs. But that's barely the beginning of the good news ahead. Life-lifting new freedoms and new spiritual insights await. New attitudes and opportunities beckon. As you discover your unique self, explore your best self, and treasure the image of God within, you will feel kick-up-your-heels younger. Dr. Wes Tracy helps you discover that you don't have to have all the answers, you don't have to live on the starvation diet of daily devotions, and you don't have to chase happiness anymore. Sometimes giving up hope is just right and making friends with failure is the proper "road less traveled." Of course, the senior stage of life is not a magical golden age. But there are plenty of books out there that moan and groan about the "catastrophe" of aging. This book, however, emphasizes the blessed opportunities of this life stage.
