"I never thought I would live to be this old." In this moving narrative, Billy Graham once again takes up the pen not only to share his personal experience of growing older but also teach us some important lessons on how to view our time here on Earth. He says that the Bible makes it clear that God has a specific reason for keeping us here. So what is His purpose for these years, and how can we align our lives with it? How can we not only learn to cope with the fears and struggles and growing limitations we face but actually grow stronger inwardly in the midst of these difficulties? In what may be his most powerful message of the last decade, Billy Graham speaks to all on this side of Heaven as he covers the importance of four key areas: Building strong foundations and understanding the gift of years; Facing life's transitions, including the passing of years, retirement, and when loved ones die; Making wise decisions; Understanding our glorious hope. "In this book I invite you to explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God's point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day. I pray that you and I may learn what it means not only to grow older, but, with God's help, to grow older with grace." - Publisher.

Dr. Graham is an icon in the Christian World, and his wisdom and insights in this book are timeless. As a retiree, I found many helpful topics to encourage me as I am on this new journey in my life. This book is liberally backed up with pertinent Bible references to reinforce these life-changing topics. I highly recommend this book to those who want a new perspective and new outlook on life.

Brilliant read.
Pastor Billy Graham is full of Wisdom, good council and all backed up with words from the Bible.

Despite being aimed at retirees I personally found this book relevant to all ages.

Highly recommend this as a read.
