Book Description:

Aging with Grace by the Power of the Gospel

Whatever season of life you're in, God has equipped you to flourish-to live in the transforming power and beauty of his grace. As we age, we can easily lose sight of this message as cultural ideals glorifying youth take center stage.

In this book, Sharon W. Betters and Susan Hunt offer present-day and biblical examples of women who rediscovered gospel-rooted joy later in their lives. Equipped with a biblical view of aging, Aging with Grace will help you encounter afresh the gospel that "is big enough, good enough, and powerful enough to make every season of life significant and glorious."

"My childhood dream was to one day become a 'godly old lady.' At the time, that goal didn't seem particularly daunting. Now that I'm in my sixties, it sometimes feels like climbing Mount Everest. Always a few steps ahead of me, Susan Hunt has encouraged and inspired me to press on in my journey. She has also been a spiritual 'grandmother' to the True Woman ministry since it launched. She has given us all a vision of flourishing in old age, for the glory of God and the good of his people. In this book, Susan and Sharon Betters have teamed together to provide perspective, wisdom, and hope for women coming behind them. They call us to keep our eyes on Christ-the prize-and to persevere to the summit, dependent on his grace every step of the way."
--Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author; Founder, Revive Our Hearts and True Woman

This book is a wealth of wisdom for women of all ages to learn from God's word the secret of aging with grace-I highly recommend it!"
--Melissa B. Kruger, Director of Women's Initiatives, The Gospel Coalition; author, Growing Together

"As I embark on my seventh decade, I find myself saying things about 'finishing well,' while at the same time moaning about the aches and trials that are my unbidden companions. But one of the gifts I love most are the friends who are walking with me. Sharon Betters and Susan Hunt are two of those friends. Let me encourage you to join them as they encourage you to walk through the final steps of your journey with faith and joy. They have encouraged me."
--Elyse Fitzpatrick, coauthor, Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women

As I read the accounts of the godly women in this book, I was confronted with thoughts about flourishing in aging that I had not previously considered. I felt guided by godly compassion and wise instruction, rather than by the frustrations of past significance or selfish pay-attention-to-me-nowness. This book is truly about flourishing in the years of God's maturing grace."
--Bryan Chapell, Pastor Emeritus, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois

"Through their insightful observations on Scripture, telling the stories of godly women in the Bible, and sharing contemporary testimonies, the authors show us how to flourish in our experiences with God and impact on others. Reading Aging with Grace will not only bless you but will also allow you to bless others."
--John Dunlop, MD, Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, Yale School of Medicine; author, Finishing Well to the Glory of God

"Aging with Grace is a remarkably authentic, heartwarming, and scriptural balm for the soul in the context of growing older. Sharon Betters and Susan Hunt consider the wisdom of godly biblical women in light of their own and other's personal experiences, thereby guiding readers on how to age with grace in an anti-aging culture. Gospel hope radiates from each page, so read and be blessed."
--Peter A. Lillback, President, Westminster Theological Seminary
