My brother-in-law shared this book with me and I read it while visiting with him and my sister. I was captivated, since I am in the "growing older" category . Dr. Kalas put such a positive twist on the subject that I am convinced that I , too can love growing older". Thank you, Dr Kalas

Kalas is succinct, scrpturally inspiring, humorous, since I am 87, when I can be convinced by someone's writing that the best is yet to come, that I CAN go home again, that there are new lands to be possessed and that growing older is a journey and growing old is a destination, I choose the former. If you can make someone at my age feel that life is an adventure, I'll keep passing it on. Thanks for giving me a venue to applaud Dr. Kalas.

This book confirmed some of the notions I had about growing older-but not old. Growing old is more a state of mind and not so much being physically limited. After 73 years of observation, I agree with the writers conclusions. I have recommended it to several friends. I read it on my Kindle is just a few days.

A delightful little book on growing older and the way we should approach older age. Good advice and well written. I could hear my Daddy with every word. Maybe that's why I enjoyed it so well.

Our Sunday School class is using this book and it fits our age, I think. We are really enjoying it and learning about why we do some things we do. I give it 5 stars.

The book is a pleasure to read. The author is cultured, educated, and writes intelligently on the subject of getting older. He brings clarity, understanding, and joy to the concept.

The author expresses himself just as he speaks when talking with him. The book has many thought provoking tips for those of us who are aging and want to retain a positive, Christian outlook.
