Product Description

Latter-day Saints live six years longer, on average, than the population at large, giving Church members an extended period of potentially productive life and service. But the challenges of retirement, aging, and related issues will eventually need to be tackled at some point in everyone’s life. This book addresses many issues related to retirement and later life, within an LDS context, with the goal of making that time more meaningful, productive, and fulfilling.

This helpful guide contains chapters from doctors, lawyers, marriage and family consultants, gospel scholars, and others who have drawn from their own expertise, experience, and research. Many of the contributors have been selected from the Emeritus Seventy and general Church officers, including Elder John H. Groberg, Elder Alexander B. Morrison, Elder L. Lionel Kendrick, Ardeth G. Kapp, and Elaine Jack. Packed with practical, user-friendly helps, this book is a must for those seeking to embrace the future, with all its opportunities and challenges.
