Aging with Grace

Flourishing in an Anti-Aging Culture

Susan Hunt, Sharon Betters

The gospel is big enough, good enough, and powerful enough to make every season of life significant and glorious.

There are many blessings that come with age: retirement, grandchildren, travel, and life experience. Today's culture, however, marginalizes old age. Be encouraged that the gospel is big enough, good enough, and powerful enough to make every season of life significant and glorious.

  • My childhood dream was to one day become a "godly old lady." At the time, that goal didn’t seem particularly daunting. Now that I’m in my sixties, it sometimes feels like climbing Mount Everest. Always a few steps ahead of me, Susan Hunt has encouraged and inspired me to press on in my journey. She has also been a spiritual "grandmother" to the True Woman ministry since it launched. She has given us all a vision of flourishing in old age, for the glory of God and the good of his people. In this book, Susan and Sharon Betters have teamed together to provide perspective, wisdom, and hope for women coming behind them. They call us to keep our eyes on Christ―the prize―and to persevere to the summit, dependent on his grace every step of the way.

  • Some women seem to grow increasingly lovely with every year that passes. I want to learn from women who display that type of beauty and grace. That’s why I’m so thankful for "Aging with Grace." This book is a wealth of wisdom for women of all ages to learn from God’s word the secret of aging with grace―I highly recommend it!

  • As I embark on my seventh decade, I find myself saying things about ‘finishing well,’ while at the same time moaning about the aches and trials that are my unbidden companions. But one of the gifts I love most are the friends who are walking with me. Sharon Betters and Susan Hunt are two of those friends. Let me encourage you to join them as they encourage you to walk through the final steps of your journey with faith and joy. They have encouraged me.

Through examples of women in the Bible as well as women in the church today, Susan Hunt and Sharon Betters guide us to reflect on God’s faithfulness to His people throughout all of redemptive history, reminding us that it’s never too late to sink our roots in the soil of God’s Word for His glory and our good.
