    1. 2017: Still love it <3 2016: As I read its pages, I feel as if I were stopping on a road trip to reconsider, map in hand, my location, my route and my destination, trying to make sure I have not missed a turn.2014: Excellent. A book I will need to read once a year from now on.

    2. I loved this book although the use of so many metaphors took be aback some. So glad I kept going!! Although finished, I am leaving this book out to read again as devotional reading.

    3. Jean Fleming is the author of one of my favorite books Between Walden and the Whirlwind. Here she tackles the art of growing old as a Christian. I enjoyed Jean's thoughts and felt like I was talking to a friend just a little further down the path from me.

    4. The Jean Fleming I have come to know, now in her seventies, is not old. A vitality radiates from her countenance and posture. She always greets me with an exuberant “Hey!” With alert eyes and listening heart, Jean seems to catch everything — the hidden meaning in my words, the unspoken emotions in my spirit. Winsome, attentive, and energetic, she attracts people to Christ. She thinks strategically about ministry concerns with youthful fervor. If Jean were a tree, she would be “full o [...]

    5. I am sure that if I weren't approaching my sixth decade and read this book when in my thirties, I would have given it five stars. Fleming has a lot of right and good thoughts here, so I'm sure my "liking" the book has something to do with age, experience, and exposure to these teaching earlier in my life's journey. I was initially drawn to the book by the title, particularly the word "intentional." I started this a year ago as a sort of preparation for me finishing my fifties; it might have take [...]

    6. This is a Christian book about finishing your life strong (as you get older!). I will be rereading this again when I feel older.

    7. LOVED this book! Filled with wisdom, strengthening words of encouragement, practical tips & deep insight. This book is Jean Fleming's gift to us.My favorite quotes: My life on earth has a time limit, a shelf life, an expiration date. When I number my days, each day rattles with sharp significance. What does this measured span look like as I weigh the brevity of my days? When I take those last breaths, how will I---and how will God---assess the days allotted to me? It’s never too soon to co [...]

    8. I have one chapter left to go in this book but couldn't wait to review it. This book was everything I have ever wanted in regards to gleaning wisdom from a woman more advanced in age than I who has lived a life of purpose. I felt like we were sitting together over tea as she shared her reflections from a life lived and her goals for the life still to come. What an encouragement to live every day for Christ-to see every joy and every struggle as an opportunity to draw us closer to Him and His Wor [...]

    9. On a long walk among the uplifted red-rock formations in Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, I prayed about what kind of old woman I would become and how I should think about my remaining years. I didn’t have any great aspirations for that walk; I just didn’t want to back into whatever was left of the rest of my life. • Delete this highlighmove into the coming years with vigor and focus. • Delete this Concentrated thought on an aspect of life can infuse it with meaning and possibilit [...]

    15. Jean Fleming did an amazing job with this book. It really is for a reader of any age. Being in my late twenties I still managed to relate to her and the idea of intentionally living in a way that would please The Lord so that we can not worry about whether or not we will get to heaven. She has opened my eyes to the idea that i may be only a quarter way through my life, or it could end in a moment and that I should have my stores with God filled so that in the end it all counts. She reminds us ho [...]

    16. This book grew on me as it progressed - Jean Fleming is a very wise and godly woman and I would love to have a spiritual mentor like her. I struggled a bit at the start, not because of content but more focus. However as the book progressed it cut deep to my soul and challenged me on many levels. There was one chapter that made me think that this book would complement well Emily Freeman's book "a Million Little Pieces". Also the chapter about "the lump" perfectly clarified to me what I have gone [...]

    17. Being a fan of Jean's book "Between Walden and the Whirlwind" I was pretty sure I would love this one. While it was chock full of nuggets, especially for those of us 60yrs and older, but also good advice for younger women and the amount of time they give to thinking about the last decades of their lives. While I didn't care for all of it, and found the first chapters (out of 35) too flowery for lack of a better word, I did like the later chapters with practical suggestions. I doubt I'll ever hav [...]

    18. This book easily falls into my "Top Ten" of titles! Jean, in her 70s, writes with great depth and artistry from the platform of her own personal longings, questions, fears – and the glories of Christ which spur her on.She writes towards the preparation of finishing one's life strong from the conviction that one never outgrows either their desperate need for reflective sanctification, or their God – given mission to make Christ known.Four decades my senior, her book drew me to sit as with her [...]

    19. "I long to see Christ's life formed in me. I want to become the person God had in mind when he created me The truth is that everyone, regardless of age, is already setting patters for the shape of his or her life. These patterns of thought and practice will either serve the glory and purposes of God or hinder them.Rich wisdom and food for thought all through this book. I felt like I was sitting with my grandma, learning life lessons of faith, with a focus on eternity.

    20. This is a book to help you reflect on your life and your relationship with God. The author poses questions like: What does it look like to live a beautiful life in a fallen world?What does it look like to live Christ to the very end?What atmosphere will color the rest of my life?The book itself was written for ladies such as myself - closer to 60 than 20, but the reflections within the book are good for any woman or man.

    21. I've so enjoyed and learned from reading this lovely book, that which Jean Fleming calls her "Old Woman File." She says she wrote this book to herself as a protection against "living my remaining years vaguely, merely drifting in the wake of those living unconsidered lives." Mrs. Fleming certainly delivered. I read one chapter of the 31 each day and plan on beginning again soon as I looked forward each morning to visiting with the wisdom contained in these pages.

    22. "The truth is that everyone, regardless of age, is already setting patterns for the shape of his or her life." Filled with ruminations on living life fully, this book encourages women to reflect on their lives and consciously decide how to live now, in preparation for the future. Beautifully written and poetic, this book is a love letter to life and eternity.

    23. A wonderful book of wisdom. This book needs to be read slowly, thoughtfully and more than once. Because of the wisdom and insights of this book I will continue to ask myself , as the author did, what kind of old woman God wants me to be! The book is practical and spiritual and full of scriptural truth. Very encouraging!

    24. Discipleship Book 1This book provided some good points to think about. Once the author stops saying "I wrote this book because" "What this book will do for me is." the information becomes more interesting. I don't know what it was but I could not read this book. The audiobook was extremely helpful in finishing this book!

    25. I loved this book. Reading it was like being mentored by an older woman. I absolutely loved all her prayers and highlighted most of them. The author inspired me in my prayer life and also in living intentionally, especially as I'm growing older. I have already started my "old lady file"! I encourage young women (and all really) to read this book to guide them on their journey as they age.

    26. Honestly, I was so excited about this book, doing it for our women's Bible study. But I found it truly difficult to read. I just kept wondering, "when is this book going to get started?" There were a lot of "gold nuggets" sprinkled throughout the text but overall, the book was a hard one to enjoy and dive into.

    27. Loved this book. Each chapter was gentle and thought provoking, edging me along the path of intentional living. I am now writing a book review and plan to share with all my friends in hopes that they too pick it up. I appreciate the perspective of a woman who can look backwards and forwards because from her view, I can adjust my own steps. Calm, reflective tone. Inspirational. Godward focus.

    28. Wonderful book on finishing the 2nd half of your life and being an ambassador for Christ. Fleming reminds us as we age that we should continue to mature in Christ and be the fruit bearers we are designed to be, with the aid of His power that lives in us.

    29. Jean Fleming writes with the conviction that we should prepare ourselves to live out our days well. She writes from an older perspective in the last chapter or chapters of her life but this is a good book for people of all ages. The chapters are short and easy to read and give lots to think about.
