Praise for Talking with God in Old Age
Missy Buchanan is a skillful writer with the gifts of compassion and love for older persons. Talking with God in Old Age clearly exhibits her empathy. While the book gives voice to various storytellers, Missy’s insights readily apply to anyone who is coping with aging and later life issues. Her wisdom and clarity are a gift for us all.

In Talking with God in Old Age, Missy Buchanan captures the very essence of the journey of frailty. Her honest and inspiring meditations reflect the pain and frustration people often experience as they age into frailty. Yet within each reflection is the glimmer of hope and an acknowledgment of profound courage and strength that remains in each person regardless of his or her abilities or disabilities. The clear messages of faith, love, and grace through God’s abiding presence shine through like a beacon of hope and understanding, and the words of the Psalms offer comfort and compassion.
