Your Second To Last Chapter
Creating a Meaningful Life on Your Own Terms
A book…an approach…. about the practical and the transcendent, guiding us to a transformation within that can truly make these….the best years of our lives.
Searching for meaning in your life?
Ready for a new adventure in “retirement”?
Is there a hunger in your soul to do something truly magnificent?
Then Your Second to Last Chapter: Creating a Meaningful Life on Your Own Terms is the book for you.
Noted author Paul Wilkes blazes a path strewn with new and exciting possibilities for what is an uncharted time in our lives. With millions of Americans entering their so-called “retirement years” — many with few material needs but a hunger in their souls to make this “second to last chapter” count — Wilkes offers the practical counsel of one who has already been there. “The last thing we want to do in our remaining productive years is count the daisies and days,” he says. “We want to matter, to accomplish something that matters. Something is stirring within us and demands a response.”
Your Second to Last Chapter is a time when you are at the peak of your powers — wise in years, brimming with experience, ready to take on fresh new challenges. Wilkes shows how to match your passion and abilities with human needs in new ways that will use your talents to fullest and provide you the deepest personal satisfaction possible.
Wilkes, one of Catholicism’s most respected writers on individual spirituality and the founder of Homes for Hope India- U.S., provides touchstones for your adventure: voices to listen to and voices not to listen to, how to develop a poised readiness to see where you might be called to help or serve, what barriers you will face and how to confront them.
Modern science has given our generation a wondrous gift — three extra decades in our lives. With this gift, we have the option of playing golf every day for 30 years. But Paul Wilkes has a better idea – living these years with a new meaning.
