A Grace-Filled Journey Home is a remarkable collection of thirty heartfelt and inspirational letters about death, dying, and aging gracefully.
Inspired by his time spent caring for both his mother-in-law and his wife at the ends of their lives, author and pastor Stan Jacobson writes these deeply personal messages to his future self as a reminder of his intentions for approaching aging and dying with grace and courage.
Pulling from his more than thirty-five years of experience as a pastor working with the elderly, Jacobson offers a wealth of life lessons covering topics such as stubbornness, identity, memory loss, giving up driving, and offering final blessings to loved ones.
In the vein of Henri J. M. Nouwen’s Our Greatest Gift: A Meditation on Dying and Caring and Joan Chittister's The Gift of Years, this outstanding book encourages readers to see all of life, including its end, as a time of hope, beauty, sharing—and blessing—and in this way allow them to leave a lasting legacy of positive memories and stories for their loved ones.
