Imagine a world where the boomer generation is motivated and mobilized to make a difference in their communities and in the world as they feed the hungry, clothe the naked, love the unlovable, work for justice, shelter the homeless, encourage the broken hearted and are the very presence of Christ in a lost and broken world, so loved by God!
Guided by the Spirit and instructed by Scripture, this book takes you on a journey through your past using life reflection exercises in order to rediscover your true self. As you discover parts of yourself which have been shed along the way you will be able to reclaim and reframe them. This process creates a deep awareness of how God's grace has been at work in your life, shaping and forming you into the creation you are today, for the purposes God has in store for your tomorrows. As your journey continues you will be encouraged to live deeply, richly, and with the expectation that the best is still ahead.
Midlife is a time of transition in every area of our lives: as we experience the shifting of family and work roles, experience the physical changes in our bodies, and wrestle with a growing hunger for meaning. Aware of the statistics concerning divorce, depression and the crisis experiences many people have at this stage in life, this book provides an exciting alternative by encouraging readers to faithfully, and intentionally look at what is happening in their lives and use the tools given to see the future from a fresh perspective.
Whether you are dealing with an empty nest, are exhausted from living in the sandwich generation, or are facing retirement with its accompanying possibilities of both increased freedom and loss of identity and purpose, you need momentum for the next season of your journey.
Incredible opportunities await us! Midlife Momentum: Living With Purpose On Purpose In Midlife And Beyond is about: Moving from fear to courage, focusing on gains rather than losses, acknowledging the pain, but embracing the pleasures, refusing to become less and choosing to become more, wrestling with our doubts while growing in faith. You will learn to live very intentionally into the purposes for which you were created.
Included in this book is a leaders guide to aid those leading seminars, retreats and small groups using the Midlife Momentum material. Exercises to be used during these events are also included. This creates a product that is very versatile and helpful in maximizing the effectiveness of those helping boomers in navigating the transitions of midlife and retirement. The book is a resource for organizations and churches desiring to offer classes and seminars to people during this significant time in life.
