Joyfully Aging Is NOT an Oxymoron!

Join us as Dr. Rich Bimler shares his positive outlook for the second half of life. Joyfully Aging is a gift that the Lord gives to all people, the younger and the older, to celebrate life each day! In a culture that sees aging as a disease, it means changing the way we perceive older people, ourselves and others. Let’s discuss how we can joyfully age together. After all, the Lord must really like older people, since He’s making so many more of us! Bimler is a Ministry Consultant, Editor-at-Large of Hope-Full Living and is a member of ALOA’s Board.
