No matter what stage of life we find ourselves in, we may wonder if what we've done with our time on earth bears any significance. But this question becomes especially important when our expectations for lifelong achievement and ability in later years come face to face with a reality that may not meet those lifelong hopes. It's common to ask, "Who am I now? How should I invest these years? Must I redefine myself, and if so, how? Can I still make a difference?"

Dale and Sandy Larsen found themselves in this place of uncertainty, and they longed to move beyond it into something fruitful and hopeful. Here they offer wisdom born from their experience of finding new, often surprising ways to use their gifts and interests to serve God and those around them. They discovered that even though former roles defined by work and family may be gone or become very different, God still has plans and purposes for their life. And he has plans for your life too.

Join Dale and Sandy in discovering the exciting ways in which God can use you no matter what your age or circumstances may be. Through interaction with personal narratives, Bible studies, connection points with biblical figures, prayer and exercises designed to help you explore new possibilities, you will learn that there's much more to life now than you expected. Rather than just living out your later years, you can learn, with God's help, to live your legacy.
