With gentle encouragement and sound advice, Poppy Smith’s helpful and reassuring ‘I’m Too Young it Be This Old’ gives you the best reasons in the world to embrace getting older and cast off the past. Without being over sentimental or painting a falsely rosy picture of later years, Poppy brings you face to face with issues about the changes that mark growing into a new phase of life.
With humour and heart she considers what’s happening to your body, your memory, your emotions, your children, your marriage, and underlines it all with the assurance that you are still you!
Each chapter draws on biblical wisdom and guidance to give you a manual of helps and hints to show you that life is changing but that can be for the better with new opportunities, new freedoms and new perspectives.

"This Old is a good book for Christian women in this empty-nester age group, it is a reprint of the book originally published in 1997. It has been revised and updated, so it now suggests maintaining relationships with distant grandchildren via Skype. However, other areas could have benefited from more revision. For example, the humorous discussion about cosmetic surgery completely ignores Botox. She also mentions the smoking section of an airplane. Was it that recently that people could smoke on planes? Overall, sound but not exceptional." - Other Retailer's Reader Review
This book addressed the emotional needs that happen to us middle something aged women. It was amusing, comforting and helpful. I also read Taking Charge of the Change by Pamela Smith and found the 2 books together to be a winning combination." - Other Retailer's Reader Review
