Missy Buchanan is busy.
Her latest book, Voices of Aging, was released earlier this year by Upper Room Books; She just returned from SOULfeast, an Upper Room spiritual retreat at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, where she led workshops on spirituality and aging; And she was recently interviewed by—and featured on—Read the Spirit, an online magazine and network of spiritual and religious writers.
“Missy Buchanan is the first person to point out that—despite her seven popular books and her national advocacy on behalf of aging Americans—she’s not an expert in traditional terms.” the Read the Spirit feature begins.
“I don’t have a doctorate. I’m not a university researcher. I’m not a medical doctor. I’m not an ordained pastor. I’m just—well, I’m just me,” Missy says. “But, you know what? Often that’s how God works: God calls unlikely people to go out and do the work that needs to be done.”
