Get on Your Knee Replacements and Pray by the Kandel Sisters

Getting old, hitting retirement, you might think your work for the Lord is over. No so says these four sisters. Your work is not over until the Lord calls you home. And being retired just means you have more time and energy to devote to the kingdom.

With doses of humor and insight, these women encourage readers to keep serving, keep cheering, and keep praying. They tell some of the funniest stories with really good lessons as a result. One sister participated in a donkey basketball game but her donkey refused to budge from the sidelines. Another received an insight from the Lord from her persistently digging beagle. And then there was the time one's husband was strip searched by the TSA (hip replacements). They have a way with words. Putting makeup on, one says, it takes twice as long to look half as good.

This is a great book for senior Christians who refuse to be put on the shelf. Don't go into old age without a fight, these women encourage. Their stories are fun and their lessons are so encouraging. If you want a good laugh and tons of encouragement to keep working for the Kingdom no matter your age, this is the book for you.

You can watch a very entertaining book trailer and get an idea of the energy these sisters have here.

My rating: 5/5 stars.

The Kandels -Kris, Karen, Kathie, and Linda – are four sisters who write, speak, and teach together. They are sisters in Christ and best friends. They share a common goal, writing to make a difference. The four have over one hundred years of combined teaching experience. The Kendals believe that you can leave a career but never God's calling. If you're not dead, you're not done.

FaithWords, 224 pages.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
