Aging Starts in Your Mind: You're Only as Old as You Feel

Aging Starts in Your Mind: You're Only as Old as You Feel
Wolf, Notker
$17.99
Notker Wolf takes a lighthearted, refreshing approach to life that any reader will find delightful! Each of his anecdotes and stories has a nugget of wisdom that will resonate especially with anyone who has struggled against the outward signs of aging. As Wolf says, the soul doesn't age; it's timeless and measures itself by a different standard than the body.
If we focused on the state of our soul--a soul which is resolutely vibrant, cheerful, and full of zest for life--we wouldn't resist aging at all. We would speak of growing fulfillment and joy. A wonderful collection of food for thought on a topic that each of us will face in the second half of life!

Bless My Grandchild: A Catholic Prayer Book for Grandparents
Cragon, Julie
$14.95
Whether your grandchildren live with you, just around the corner, or a thousand miles away, praying for them every day is one of the most important ways you can show your love and concern. And when you are searching for the right words, Bless My Grandchild is the prayer book you need. This follow-up to Julie Cragon's bestseller, Bless My Child, combines original and traditional prayers and devotions that will help you place the joys and worries you experience as a grandparent in the hands of God.

"Grandparents are the living memory of the family," Pope Francis noted. "They pass on the faith; they transmitted the faith to us."

In Bless My Grandchild, bestselling Catholic author Julie Cragon combines thoughtful scripture quotes and wisdom from saints along with prayers appropriate for every milestone and circumstance of a grandchild's life, from conception through adulthood, including special circumstances and contemporary needs. There are prayers for:

  • the first day of school,
  • adoption,
  • learning to read,
  • courage,
  • sacramental milestones, and
  • illness or death of a friend, family member, or pet.
  • The book concludes with traditional prayers and novenas that you can teach a grandchild or offer on their family's behalf, including the novena to St. Jude, "Stations of the Cross for My Grandchild," the Angelus, and "Consecration of the Family."

    Precious Gift of Old Age: How to Make the Golden Years the Best of Your Life
    LaFarge, John
    $14.95

    The fear of growing old is a universal burden. Here's the book you need to ensure that you move into and through old age with grit and grace. Fr. John LaFarge shows you how to conquer any fear of aging -- and how to make your golden years the best years of your life.

    At age 84, Fr. LaFarge was struck by the many advantages and blessings of aging, and he observed that modern men and women have lost touch with the traditional view of old age as the crowning summit of life. Seeing old age instead as a calamity, he says, is what makes aging such a misery for many.

    In these insightful and encouraging pages, Fr. John helps you recognize that old age has its own inherent meaning and that the wisest thing we can do when it creeps up on us is to explore this meaning and adopt a general plan of action to profit from it.

    Specifically, you will learn how to overcome loneli
