New book promises passion, purpose and pizazz for all ages

Hi, I’m Jim. Welcome to Agers Anonymous.

This is my brand-new support group, based on my brand-new book, If You’re Not Dead, You’re Not Done. I’m so glad you’ve joined us.

With ten thousand of us turning sixty-five each day, there’s definitely a need for this group. Here’s how to join the fun:

Watch moi and my new book “drop” on Saturday October 23 at 11 am at the TriState airport in Angola, Indiana. Click here to watch it in person. Click here to watch on Facebook Live.

Watch my ten-minute “sit down” comedy based on the book.

For the latest cartoons, memes and free excerpts, visit my Facebook page.

Browse and buy:
Amazon (Amazon is currently out of stock.)
Barnes&Noble
ChristianBooks
Tyndale House Publishers (When you buy direct from the publisher you save money and I make larger royalty payments!)

If you’d like me to speak at your church, conference, or convenience store grand opening, I’d love to share this hope and humor for seniors. Email me at jim@jameswatkins.com!

• But wait, there’s more! Here are the ten characteristics that I believe are essential for living a life of passion, purpose and pizzaz:

I
Acceptance

We admitted we were powerless over aches and pains, weaknesses, memory issues, and all the other consequences of aging that had become unmanageable.

II
Anticipation

Made a decision to no longer live in the past, but to live fully in the present as we anticipate a brighter future.

III
Courage

Humbly turned our aging minds, bodies, and souls over to the care of God and now can fearlessly face each new day.

IV
Curiosity

Continued to explore this amazing, miraculous world that God has created, knowing that our minds can stay young by learning new things.

V
Faith, hope, and love

Sought through Bible study, prayer, and fellowship with others to improve our conscious contact with God.

VI
Forgiveness

Made a list of all persons we had harmed and those we have held grudges against, and became willing to make amends with anyone we called “an old fart.”

VII
Gratitude

Were entirely ready to have God remove all our wrong attitudes toward aging and replace them with thanksgiving for his loving care over us.

Johnny Hawkins

VIII
Joy

Humbly asked God to remove our complaining and to replace with things for which we can experience His joy.

IX
Optimism

Made a willful, deliberate decision to turn negative thinking about aging into positive thoughts based on God’s love and promise for his “good, pleasing, and perfect will.”

X
Significance

Having had a spiritual awakening and experienced God’s power, we tried to live out these characteristics each day of our lives.

    I can’t wait to get a copy. I know so many Christian seniors who think retirement is about “finally not doing anything.” I hope that until my last breath I can be of use to Him.

    I just ordered two. One for myself and one for my best friend. I gave her your book on unanswered prayer and she liked the way you wrote.
