Pressure Points Session 1: Further Reading for Boomers

As you lead your group of boomers to consider the pressure points in their lives, you may benefit from the book Boomers on the Edge by Terry Hargrave. Check out this back cover blurb, and think about how well it describes some of the major trials the Boomer Generation faces:

The baby boomer generation has found itself in a perfect storm of new and difficult challenges. Aging parents need care. Adult children are moving back home. And just when boomers thought they could retire, economic realities such as meager 401(k) plans and crushing medical expenses are forcing boomers by the thousands back into the workplace.

Hargrave, a professor of counseling at West Texas A&M University, writes in a well-informed, yet always accessible style. This is a great resource for getting a handle on the three most significant challenges this life stage is dealing with.

The book is available for purchase in ePub format from LifeWay, using LifeWay’s free reader app (available in the iTunes App Store and Google Play). Click on the book cover for more information.

    How about something for SENIORS!!!

  2. I teach a sunday school class of senior ladies. we are all over 70 years old.It does seem at times that the lessons are geared to the younger seniors. we are all retired and have been for quite some time. Is it possible future-wise to consider a division between the adult lessons and those who are mature seniors? As we age our lifestyle changes dramatically. I’m offering this just as a suggestion. Thanks to LIFEWAY for your excellent write-ups and the people who present them as an addition for teachers.

      Hi Shirley! Thanks so much for your question. Are you familiar with Bible Studies for Life: Senior Adults? The goal for that resource is to do exactly what you are suggesting. So if you are not using that one, you may want to talk with the person that orders curriculum for your church and change your order. I hope this helps!
