Thanks for your comment on:

I'm closer to 50 than I'd like to be though I have a few more years before hitting that big milestone.

This book is a great resource of information and it offers some sound advice that I plan to start doing now rather than waiting till I'm 50! :)

Many thanks to KCWC for the opportunity to review this book!

Book Summary

Christian author and gerontologist Dr. Sharon V. King welcomed her 50th birthday asking these same questions. In the Introduction to her book, The Spiritual Fitness Checkup for the 50-Something Woman, she writes:

“The view from my 50th birthday was quite different from what I had anticipated. As a Christian, I was ready to start cataloging everything from the first 50 years of my life for which I wanted to thank God—and all the issues I genuinely needed to discuss with Him in considerable detail. But, as the cataloging progressed, unusual items surfaced—doubt, regret, loss, resentment, disappointment—feelings that were far less rosy than the pink icing on my birthday cake.”

Realizing that thousands of other “50-something” women may have the same feelings about their official entry into midlife, Sharon set out to apply her knowledge of aging to her spiritual questions and help other women find their way through the midlife maze and, revive (or discover) the joys that come from a closer walk with God at this unique crossroads of life.
Organizing the book like a visit to the doctor’s office for a routine physical, Sharon presents 10 spiritual fitness “checkups” and exercises to help you take your own midlife “Spiritual Pulse Check.”

You will learn how to:

Jettison unwanted spiritual baggage
View your midlife crisis from God’s perspective
Focus on forgiveness instead of anger
Conduct a spiritual lab test
Improve your spiritual stamina
Enhance your meditation time
Spiritualize your midlife self-image
These Spiritual Pulse Checks can be used by individuals or for group discussion points. It is Sharon’s hope that The Spiritual Fitness Checkup for the 50-Something Woman will help readers adopt the same attitude toward their spiritual health as they do their physical health, and strive to maintain a vibrant relationship with God.

Well, I am waaaaay past 50, but this looks like a great read! It sounds like an interesting book for group discussions.

Hi, Renee. I just wanted to thank you for hosting my blog tour. I see on your profile that you're a Star Trek fan. Me too. I was in the 10th grade when the original series aired--ok, I'm definitely dating myself! I'm glad you found the book beneficial, even on the "approaching" side of 50. Have a blessed New Year, and may you age gracefully with God's grace.

Sharon King
