4.5 ⭐️
The 30 Day Devotional is geared for women aged 40 and finer, serving as a gentle reminder to slow down and be intentional with their life. This takes a religious perspective, offering scripture from the Bible, metaphors, personal experiences, a prayer and a recommendation for incorporating the lesson into your life intentionally. Overall it has a great message of giving ourselves more grace and reminding us of our value when so many feel unworthy after we hit a certain age.

Example: Chapter 1 is about The Secret to Flourishing After 40 ~ How to Praise as We Age. It starts out with a passage from Psalm, and then the author describes her experience maturing in Christ to stand tall through storms, and ties it back to lessons from the scripture. She ends it with a short prayer and some recommendations on how to be mindful about praise each and every day.

Each devotional is between 4 and 4.5 pages, and took me roughly 3 minutes to read. Most of the devotions have a small space at the end that could be used to write some thoughts, but not all, and for that reason I knock off a 1/2 star, as I like to reflect and take notes on my own memories.

Reading about the author’s personal stories helps give the feeling of a mini Bible study session with a girlfriend, which is kind of nice. I can think of several friends that might enjoy a hard copy of this.

Thank you to NetGalley, Our Daily Bread Publishing and Heather Creekmore for this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

Aging and longevity seem to be quite the hot topic lately. There are numerous books out providing scientifically backed ways to live a healthful and longer life. One study after another points to changes in diet and lifestyle changes that may impact one's lifespan. They seem to miss crucial aspects that Heather Creekmore's book, Aging Gratefully, captures beautifully. Those crucial aspects are a connection to God and a grateful mindset.

I enjoyed the daily readings provided in Creekmore's 30 day devotional. Each day included a short bible verse, followed by an inspirational application of the passage, a prayer, and finally a call to action. I felt that the author understood the struggles I face as an older woman. Her writing style felt like a friend talking to me.

I appreciated Creekmore's approach to embracing aging and sharing what the bible says about aging gratefully.. Although I still struggle with feeling comfortable in my aging body, the daily reading are helping me to look at the past and the future with new eyes and a grateful heart.

Aging Gratefully, A 30-Day Devotional for Women is a Christian devotion written by author Heather Creekmore. This 168 page book targets mature women aged forty and above. I am a baby-boomer so I fall within that bracket, and I really loved this.

This lovely devotional is filled with scriptures, prayers, and ideas for how to apply the lessons to daily life. Each daily message is around four pages, which makes it easy to accomplish. The author writes openly with honesty about her life. It is personal and like chatting with a friend over coffee or tea.

I know this is a devotional that I will keep on my shelf and revisit from time to time. It was refreshing to read and study what the Bible says about aging gratefully. I highly recommend it. It gets a 5 out of 5 star rating from me. A copy was provided by NetGalley but these are my honest words. #AgingGratefully #NetGalley

This book is a collection of thirty daily devotionals on the topic of living life fully while getting older. Each entry provides a reflection, generally with some biblical or religious context, that touches on the author’s topic. For example, the first entry uses the metaphor of a tree to talk about growth, roots, the ways in which time may make things stronger and so on. It ends with a prayer and a suggestion of something to do-in this case to find ways to praise God. The next entry is about keeping track of the years but also the days and cherishing the present. Again, it ends with a prayer and a suggestion.

For a person who is not religious, the reflections may well still have meaning in terms of thinking of one’s life and how to live mindfully. This title can be read in any order. Each entry will take a few minutes of a person’s day.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Our Daily Bread Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.

For the past month I have looked forward to spending a few moments each day reading one of the devotional passages in Aging Gratefully. The author has put a positive spin on the various issues we face in middle age and beyond. I especially appreciated the way she incorporated personal anecdotes as well as the humorous chapter titles. Thanks to NetGalley, Our Daily Bread Publishing and the author for an advance copy to read and review.

“Aging Gratefully” ministered to me and gave me a refreshing spiritual and practical perspective on aging. Rooted in biblical wisdom, this book is a beacon of hope and encouragement for those navigating the later stages of life. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to embrace the latter years with faith, hope and gratitude. Can’t wait to get my physical copy!

Every Christmas I find a newly published book devotional to share with friends. This year it will be Aging Gratefully. It is another devotional by Our Daily Bread for women that speaks truth into each day.
Heather Creekmore is a coach to woman about accepting themselves. Aging Gratefully is a non-judgmental 30 daily devotional that is for those over 40. It is traditional devotion style with a verse to start each day and the Creekmore's essay about how to age with eyes on Christ, not the world's thoughts on age. She encourages us that while it's important to keep the body healthy, it's more important to see how God wants to still use us.
I think all Christian women in this age group will be encouraged by these daily reminders.
I received a complimentary copy of this book thanks to Our Daily Bread and NetGalley, but all opinions are my own.
