Voices of Aging by Missy Buchanan
Wins Living Now Book Award



MDC300C-books.aiNASHVILLE, Tenn.  Sept. 28, 2015/ The Upper Room — Upper Room Books is pleased to announce that Voices of Aging: Adult Children and Aging Parents Talk with God by Missy Buchanan has been named a winner in the 2015 Living Now Book Awards. Buchanan’s book won a bronze award in the Mature Living/Aging category.

In Voices of Aging, Buchanan, a nationally recognized advocate for older adults, presents 20 common scenarios showing the fear and frustrations of aging. Buchanan invites readers of two generations—adult children and their aging parents—to stand in each other’s shoes and view these situations from the other’s perspective. Voices of Aging includes side-by-side prayers expressing adult children’s and their parents’ feelings to God, scriptures, and suggestions to help both generations discuss and deal with challenging circumstances. 

Buchanan began writing books to provide spiritual encouragement for older adults after her parents (now deceased) moved to a senior care residence. She is the author of the best seller Living with Purpose in a Worn-Out Body (Upper Room Books, 2008) and 4 other books for older adults. When she is not traveling to speaking engagements, Buchanan enjoys spending time with friends at three senior living facilities in the Dallas area.

    Does God take our armor away at the end and thats why we just die? What would Calvin say about that question, and is it intended that you and i could live 120 years old?

    This is a wonderful book that really helps me understand how my mother is feeling now that she has lost her independence and has caregivers 24/7. Missy really understands the senior generation. All of her books are outstanding!
