Publisher's Summary

Both Rohr and D'Arcy believe that much personal and church confusion could be helped by clearly distinguishing the tasks of the two halves of life. Much of institutional religion is concerned with the tasks of the first half of life. The need for adults is to move onto the tasks of the second half of life, which are much closer to the concerns of Jesus, Buddha, and the mystics of all religions. Prepare for both stages to affirm and challenge you and to recognize the immense implications for raising children and young people.

Powerful and Inspirational

I loved the inspirational stories in this book. I could very much relate to it’s content from my own life experiences. I would recommend this to anyone who is at a crossroad in life or is dealing with disappointment, pain or grief. I found it very entertaining as well!

Very, very good book

I signed up for a retreat where Paula was speaking but didn’t know anything about her so I searched audibles and found this book. Glad I did. Wisdom just flows out of her. Apply some self-love and buy this book. Also didn’t know Richard Rohr, also now one of my favorites, not all his work, but he is on point here.
