Here's a book for the young-old. Ready to retire—or perhaps refusing to—but still vigorous, sharp, and engaged. John Smith writes with insight, humor and empathy about the issues that trouble, delight, puzzle, worry and elate the millions who have reached "that certain age." He reminds us that this time is a good stage in our lives—a time to explore life's great questions. Where did I come from? * Where am I going? * What have I learned? * What is my truth? * What is my truth of God? * What is my legacy? Living Forward offers refreshing perspectives on issues from creativity and leisure to relationships and faith. It encourages the young-old to discover that the joy of growing older lies not in looking forward or back, but in living forward ... living fully in the moment.


"A warm-hearted book."

"John Smith has written a warm-hearted book for us who are of "a certain age." He gently turns us to face the grace-filled divine truth amidst the harvest opportunities of life's elder season.
