This is a good devotional book for older adults, target audience seems to be ages 80+, esp. for older adults who are living in nursing homes, but some of the encouragement could be appropriate for younger seniors. Large print. It is culturally biased towards white Americans but adults of other ethnic backgrounds will find comforting words in many of the sections.
