Welcome to Agers Anonymous

If You're Not Dead You're Not Done
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 and these ten steps. (Yes, I know, most “anonymous” groups have twelve steps, but I can barely remember the three words the doctor has me remember during my annual checkup.)

So, I’ll be sharing ten characteristics that I believe are essential for being a satisfied, significant, and saintly senior.

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.

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.
