GROWING OLDER, GROWING WISER by Karen Y. Davis

224 Pages

Learn what the Bible says about the challenges and pitfalls of growing older. Discover God’s purposes in the aging process and the unique opportunities that are available for believers in their later years.  “There are about 3,000 people mentioned by name in the Bible. Of those 3,000, we only have enough information to evaluate the lives of about 100 of them. Of those 100, only about one-third of them finished well. Of those who failed, most failed in the last half of their lives.” – Howard Hendricks
