Cover Reveal: Aging Gracefully by Dr. Sharon V. King

It is Cover Reveal day here on Breath of Life. 

We have here today a Cover Reveal for Aging Gracefully 
with the 23rd Psalm by Dr. Sharon V. King



  

Aging Gracefully with the 23rd Psalm
by Dr. Sharon V. King
Inspirations Imprint

Blurb:
Can we talk about getting older? With another Baby Boomer turning 60 every 7.5 seconds, the “age wave” has captured the attention of such diverse fields as financial planning, cosmetics, medicine, and—religion. How does aging affect our spirituality? Does it deepen our relationship with God, or have decades of life’s roller coaster rides left us “spiritually challenged?”  Life after 50 can be particularly challenging for women because of the personal, social, and physical changes that naturally occur as we age. A rich spiritual life can help 50+ women gain perspective about their aging process and seek God’s guidance as they encounter the changes, challenges, and opportunities of later life.

Aging Gracefully with the 23rd Psalm applies some of the best-loved verses in scripture to a reflective study of ways women can grow in grace as they grow in years. The book format provides reflections on themes of aging found in each verse of Psalm 23, such as facing forks in the road; making fresh starts; resolving past conflicts; coping with social, personal, and physical changes; navigating through emotional transitions; processing loss and grief; and end-of-life planning. Illustrations of each theme follow, using biblical examples, vignettes from the author’s personal aging journey, a Takeaway Message from each psalm verse, suggestions for group discussion topics, and a journaling exercise to help the reader write a “Prayer Memo” to the Good Shepherd of the 23rd Psalm.

Bloggiesta My First Mini Challenge 1# Organizing my

Mini Challenge # 1: Organizing my Blogging Calendar



This was on my overall to do list for Bloggiesta so I thought why not start with this one.  It's been something that I haven't been able to keep up with, even though I've tried other ways, or list for a long time.  So after checking out and reading some other articles that had been showed to me about it that the lovely Cover2Cover blog suggested and I finally got it finished. 



I have only done this months, and now all I need to do is make all the red and yellow posts go green.  I also need to work on next months calendar as well. 



My New Google Scheduling Calendar 


 I took the advice from my daughter Ali from Ali's Bookshelf who took it from one of the blogs that is mentioned on Cover2Cover and she helped me get it going.  








So here is a look at the rest of this months schedule and one mini challenge done!  Yeah! BIG THANKS to Cover2Cover and Ali for all the advice and encouragement.

Publisher: Deseret Book
Format: Kindle/E-Book
Pages: 224P

Although we might reverence things that are deemed holy — the temple, for example, and the scriptures, and the Sabbath — we do not love them. Not really. Not with our whole souls.
The Holy Secret is the story of a man who learns how to love what matters. As he does, he learns another secret: Love for holiness transforms life itself. His realization of what he had been missing may lead you to some discoveries of your own!
