We all want the best of growing older. There’s just one problem: the older we get, the harder it gets to stay well and active. Sound familiar? In this book author Margie Hackbarth reveals the ways affirmations help us set and achieve meaningful goals during this phase of life’s journey. This includes how to recognize and tackle unconscious and deep-rooted age bias. She teaches how to pause to reflect. Then guides readers to shift from reluctantly aging to intentionally aging.
Margie Hackbarth, a Christian author, writes from a heart that believes in people, blending enthusiasm for older adults, lifelong learning, and nearly 30-years of healthcare communications and administration. A wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend, Margie hopes this work encourages and benefits you as much as these techniques have helped her.
As you consider all you are grateful for this Thanksgiving, think about the blessing of growing old. It's a privilege denied to many.
Amaging(TM) Growing Old On Purpose includes a few poetry lines from Helen Lowrie Marshall, along with other inspirational quotes, Bible verses, stories and research findings to encourage and support older adults.
