About this product
- DescriptionBased on Christian concepts, this book is a collection of 210 topics, written for seniors by a senior. Each devotional, figuratively speaking, is a nugget---valuable w and of continuing worth. The author addresses seniors' changing perceptions and needs that arise from the aging process. Numerous nuggets focus on issues for action. In his appeal, the writer includes one's own family as well as the extended family of society. He reminds the reader of a senior's power and influence commensurate with age. Nuggets was written with America's moral erosion in mind. Instead of joining the Ain't it awful crowd, the reader is encouraged with his/her senior wisdom to join with those trying to reverse our nation's decline. The book is fully indexed. One can quickly find topics of special interest or needs. Also, Nuggets indexes the first line of familiar poetry found in the text. Nuggets is useful t only for seniors but also for family and caregivers. One need t be a senior to appreciate the book. It is valuable for anyone, regardless of age, who can be inspired by biblical truths.
