Why I wrote this book
Retirement is first and foremost a spiritual journey. My research tells me that there are 15 factors which impact one's success in retirement; each of these is essentially spiritual at its core. Each chapter in the book is devoted to one of these "retirement success factors" and allows the reader to practically apply it to his or her life.

There are so many books on the financial aspects of retirement, and even the psychological aspects; to my knowledge this is the only book which looks at the spiritual aspects: where true meaning and genuine purpose in life rests.

Our culture "tells" retirees to do basically two things: 1) rest, and 2) have fun. Certainy rest and fun are as important in retirement as they are in all other stages and phases of life. However the real reason I wrote this book was to demonstrate, as clearly as I could, the vital connections between your fatih and your retirement happiness.

For males particularly, retirement can pose a confusing lifestyle. Generally speaking, males are socialized to do but one thing in life and that is provide for a family ... work. Males basically find their pesonal "worth" in their "work." Females are certainly socialized to work (some would say even harder than males) but they also have another central life task and expectation, that of nurturance. Males then are more "at risk" in retirement because they search for meaning and purpose and find little.

For those so inclined, there is a small section in the back of the book, outlining how you could become trained as a retirement facilitator. You can log onto the website www.senioradultministry.com for more information on this.

The sub-title of the book is "Finding Peace and Purpose". Here is the essence of the retirment lifestyle; a great opportunity to discover yourself anew and to understand what you are being called to do right now in and with your life.

Some time ago President Clinton gave an award to former President Jimmy Carter. Regardless of your politics, the award was important. It was given for "how Jimmy Carter was using his retirement." We could all ask ourselves the question: "How am I using my retirement?" The book helps you answer this vital question.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Successful Retirement--Peace and Purpose 19. Juni 2008
Von Margaret B. Beckman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is excellent for a transition from the workforce into retirement. As I begin retirement this summer this book is helping me to focus on developing a stronger relationship with the Lord, awakening areas of my life which have been dormant during working years and making the rest of my life a chance to explore new options to love and serve God more. This book has an excellent view on a Christian based retirement. It has practical and insightful advice. It is a real treasure.
4.0 von 5 Sternen An Ageless Retirement 24. Januar 2016
Von Suen Pen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Though not named as such, this is an inspiring book for serious Christians and people with some sort of religious faith, who are contemplating to start the second half of their lives, the retirement life. Written concisely, the author is able to shed much light from the fifteen "pearls" of retirements. The well-documented theme of body/mind/spirit connection you can find throughout the book.

This is an excellent read as well as reference. It is organized into 15 well thought out chapters and written in a very concise but complete way. The organization of the book makes it an excellent reference. I've recommended it and loaned to many friends.

Bought this for my Dad as a retirement gift. He and my mother read the whole thing together. Love that it is written by a Catholic author and speaks to the spiritual side of retirement. He found it very helpful.
