I've Never Been This Old Before by Stan Toler

Toler gives readers a good dose of humor, spiritual teaching, and practical suggestions for a better life, all centered on aging. The humor was interesting. I think one might need to be a southerner to understand and appreciate some of it. I laughed aloud sometimes and groaned others. I appreciate the teaching Toler included on topics like contentment. He has insights into Christian living that might only come through long life and experience. He shares some of those experiences with illustrative stories from his own life.

This is an entertaining book for those entering the second half or perhaps last third of life. You'll be encouraged to not worry about your sagging skin or lack of technical expertise. You'll receive some very practical ideas to help flourish in life. You'll also be inspired to know that God has exciting plans for your days ahead.

Food for thought: “No matter where we are on our journey, we're just visiting. Let's make the most of every moment, say the best of every person, and see the positive in every situation.” (Loc 880/994)

My rating: 4/5 stars.
