Review: Get on Your Knee Replacements and Pray! If You're Not Dead, You're Not Done by Kris Kandel Schwambach, Karen Kandel Kizlin, Kathie Kandel Poe and Linda Kandel Mason
Blending humor and faith, the four Kandel sisters encourage senior adults to be mission focused and never let age block opportunities to serve and minister to others.
With wry humor, they inspire you to investigate possibilities for your next assignment from God. If you have retired or are considering retirement, you will chuckle as they motivate you to look into new opportunities to serve God with that unhinged schedule, wisdom gained from experience, and perhaps even some discretionary income.
Cheerleaders encouraging the no-longer-young to stay in the game, the Kandels let you laugh out loud at their own real-life mishaps. They prove that age isn’t years, it is mind-set, and they offer a lighthearted challenge to seek new ways to serve God.
Do not let your number of birthdays stand in the way of your eternal impact. The big music for intentional, mission-focused living can begin even when you are well advanced in years.
This was really fun. You are as old as you feel. I love this line, “a little north of middle age and a bit south of rigor mortis.” These ladies show how age is just a number.
I’m always looking to read perspectives of people who have some more life experience than me. It keeps me grounded and humbled. I’ve always felt that experience and wisdom have always given me a sense of purpose and inspiration to look at things differently. If you are faith based, than what you will appreciate through the humor and insight of what these ladies bring together through the ups and downs of life they stay spiritually grounded and finds ways to incorporate that in their everyday lives.
Even though the book was intended for a different demographic, I still appreciate their life experience and humor. They sprinkle family moments with faith and encourage their peers not to lose focus where their rooted faith will lead them or into other lives. Life don’t stop until your eyes are closed forever.
Everything from that witty title to getting to having a little fun with these lovely ladies, this was a nice read. My only wish was that I could know whose perspective at certain moments that way I could connect better. It was a blended perspective that you can definitely feel the familial vibe but they each brought something special to the book that made it enjoyable.
