Synopsis: What are the spiritual challenges specific to one's later years? How can an older person possess one of the greatest fruits of trust in God-a hopeful heart? In this totally unique book, best selling author Robert Wicks addresses the need to prepare spiritually, rather than financially, for retirement. Wicks encourages readers to focus on three areas of preparation: building interior lives with prayer, caring for others from a deeper place in the soul and nurturing their own soul and hopeful heart.

In his characteristically engaging style, Wicks carefully mixes ideas, quotations, stories, humor and original prayers to provide practical spiritual advice and keen psychological reflection. He offers refreshing new ways to pray, including learning how to enjoy solitude, practicing "spiritual letter writing," developing one's own parables and practicing the gift of presence. All these help readers embrace God at the center of their lives.

Review: The bumper sticker reads, "We're spending our children's inheritance." Sure, it's fine for retired people to enjoy themselves after a lifetime of toil. Robert Wicks, reminds us, however, that our wisdom years are a time in which we can offer ourselves to others in ways that may differ from earlier in life but which are equally worthwhile. In the three sections "Praying," "Caring," and "Nurturing," Wicks teaches a simple yet many-faceted way to maintain meaning, hope, and joy in a spiritual life. This is an inspirational and instructional book for the reader who knows that life is a journey of learning and loving.
