At the Crossroads


By Nancy Young, GUMF Director of Planned Giving and Scholarships

Did you know that about 10,000 Americans turn 65 every day? Many look forward to retirement with both excitement and anxiety. Clayton Smith, co-author of “At the Crossroads,” states that “baby boomers have high expectations of retirement: they want to be redeployed to a life that is meaningful, significant, and full of joy. But this requires thoughtful planning, and many soon-to-be retirees wonder how they will get there or even if they are on the right path.”

You can help by recommending “At the Crossroads,” a 6-week Bible-based study which is especially helpful for those in pre-retirement or early retirement life stages. The book guides readers to discover their purpose, passion, and mission for retirement. The last chapter covers the reader’s legacy, for an impact that will last through generations.
