Colorful Memories: Aging with Style

August 11 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am

Local author Althea Taylor Jones, PhD Certified Gerontologist will give a presentation about her book Colorful

Memories: Aging with Style. A collection of experiences shared by African American elders regarding their support,

survival, and success while aging with style. How do we come to appreciate the beauty of maturing beyond our youthful years? What type of mindset do we need to mature and age gracefully? Each level of the aging process has its own

beauty and uniqueness that God blesses and anoints. According to John 10:10, Jesus came that we might live more

abundant lives!  

Aging can be as beautiful as the fall season with the changing of the leaves. Fall has its purpose and so does aging. The wisdom that we accumulate as we mature is vital in guiding and directing younger generations. Even in our advanced and mature years, life can be purposeful and meaningful. Colorful Memories: Aging with Style is vital reading for seniors and others who seek to understand what happens to us as we age and how aging provides new challenges as well as

opportunities to live the abundant life.
