Pilgrimage into the Last Third of Life 7 Gateways to Spiritual Growth Jane Marie Thibault & Richard L. Morgan Do you dread growing old? The last third of life (age 60 and beyond) can be a meaningful, endurable, and even joyful time. Paperback $15.99 978-0-8358-1117-0

Kindle $9.99 978-0-8358-1122-4

eBook $9.99 978-0-8358-1176-7

This book was given to me at just the right time. . . . I had retired and was hoping to develop my spiritual side. Though there was a lot of emphasis on the various infirmities of life, which I have yet to encounter, there were also many concrete suggestions that have proven helpful in my quest. It was beneficial to have the point of view of a 60-something person as well as that of an 80-something author . . . both experiencing that last third of life, but at different ends of the spectrum.

I am at the first anniversary of my husband’s sudden death and am reading this book now. Nell has captured the journey. While her stories are different from mine, the devotional aspect is comforting and timely. My husband and I were active in the church. His dad and two brothers were ministers (and 3 nephews and a niece serve now), and I was a Christian educator. Perhaps that is why I connect. I keep returning to the scripture references, which, along with the prayers/thoughts for the day, resonate at the most needed times. I’m buying more copies for some widow friends and my church.

I knew they were to aid in praying but knew little else about them. At first it was hard to use them in connection with prayer, as their novelty tended to distract me. I purchased A Bead and a Prayer to help me understand their use and benefits more fully. It has been very helpful, and I would recommend the book to anyone unfamiliar with prayer beads.

Loneliness touches everyone—rich or poor, young or old. We were created with a longing for relationships with others and with God. Friendship with God can carry us from feelings of isolation and insignificance to a sense of belonging and feeling treasured for who we are. Trevor Hudson explores how friendship with God can transform our lives. In his warm, approachable style, he guides us to discover how to deepen our friendship with God.
