This is a beautiful collection of essays by famous authors like Brene Brown, Lauren Winner, Kynne Hybels, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Madeleine L’Engle.
I also got to make a contribution! My essay is entitled, “The Fetters and Freedom of Family.” I tell the story of having my first babies after I turned 40.
From the back cover:
We’re all getting older. How do we make the second half of our lives the best half? Forty incredible women of faith from 40 to 85 tackle aging anxieties head-on–and upend them with compelling first-person stories full of humor, sass, and spiritual wisdom. Including:
Joni Eareckson Tada on Pain and Provision
Kay Warren on Joy and Holy Fun
Lauren Winner on Living with Intention
Luci Shaw on Embracing Adventure
Lynne Hybels on the Necessity of Pleasure
Madeleine L’Engle on Honoring Touch
And many more
In three thematic sections–Firsts, Lasts, and Always– these women provide much-needed role models for aging honestly, beautifully, and faithfully, with surprises all along the way. These are indeed the Wonder Years.
