At 49 and an empty-nester, I hope to have many great years ahead! I have enjoyed these articles and gleaned many helpful and hopeful ideas from them.

Sheri McMurtreyFebruary 10, 2016

I started reading this series of articles late and had to go back and do some "catch up" as I didn't want to miss any of them. Such GREAT ideas! I am incorporating many and look forward to reading more of your thoughts in your book. Thank you for sharing.

Kathleen TurnerFebruary 10, 2016

I'm coming late to the series and have not read the previous articles. As I'm in the 'bonus 20', I'm interested in reading more to understand and enhance this time of my life.

Laurie LFebruary 10, 2016

Thanks very much for a brilliant series. I really appreciated your dedication to your children and grandchildren. Ideas for our golden years also rated amongst my favorites!

ArleneFebruary 9, 2016

Thank you for this great series and publishing it on Meridian. I appreciate your insights and hope to read the rest of the book.

Great series. I am a relatively early baby boomer and this series has helped focus the question of my worth and productivity as I get next door to 70.

Kathryn J. AmesFebruary 9, 2016

Three years into a phenomenal second marriage I am "supercharged" about this stage in life. Your articles have given me additional ideas as to how to preserve, continue, and enhance relationships with my new husband, to whom I am sealed, and our combined 13 children and 31 grandchildren. We need new ideas and insights to keep us progressing.

I need all the advice I can get. I am 64 and looking at a long life, considering when to retire, etc. We have 9 kids and 39 grandkids, and we're looking forward to serving a mission together. We already work in the temple, teach Sunday School and play the organ and lead the music in Sacrament Meeting, so we're into service. Thanks for your advice. I'd love to read your book...

Age is just a number. At times I feel like I'm in my 30's & other times I feel my age. It what we do with our time & how we react.

Mark MathesonFebruary 9, 2016

I like how you have helped us for so many years, from Discovering Joy as a YSA in the 1970's to now finding a joyful life as baby boomers. I hope you are also planning (as one of your subtitles suggested) on living and writing live until you are 100 !

Catherine KirklandFebruary 9, 2016

This was a wonderful series. I especially liked the one about 65 being the new 45. I recently turned 65 and felt old wondering what the next 20 years would be like. All the articles have cheered me up and have helped me to look forward with enthusiasm to the many years that are left. Great suggestions on grandparenting also. Much appreciated!

Linda TooneFebruary 9, 2016

Reading this series has made me more excited for our Autumn years! My husband and I are both retiring this year, and hope to serve a mission and then move closer to our children and grandchildren. I've enjoyed reading your insights and advice ever since our Joy School years with little ones 30 years ago! Thank you!

Reading this series of articles has made me more excited for our Autumn years! My husband and I will both be retiring this year, and plan to serve a mission, then move closer to our children and grandchildren. I've enjoyed reading your insights and advice- ever since our Joy School days with little ones 30 years ago! Thank you!

Jeri PettingillFebruary 9, 2016

I have enjoyed reading your books throughout my life and appreciate that you have followed my needs for many years now. I am certainly pleased to have been able to read this series in Meridian Magazine and I would love to read all that you have written in your latest book. Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts with me and probably millions of others.

Pam IFebruary 9, 2016

I love the Eyres and their wonderful advice. Their program on BYU Radio is so enjoyable!

Ena WarrenFebruary 9, 2016

I've been struggling to fit in with my onset of the Autumn of Life in some ways! But my 12 grandchildren are my saving grace from insanity! How much they encourage and lift my spirit with their commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Of all the blessings that I can share with them, my Testimony and Spiritual experiences to hopefully encourage and lift and support them in life! To become a great/greater example to them! All my grandchildren live away from me, but I have the comfort of being in the Preston Temple boundaries!

Rennaye MillerFebruary 9, 2016

The "autumn" season of life is one of the most rewarding seasons. It is wonderful to share our life experiences, knowledge and love with children and grandchildren. Thank you for sharing your insight and wisdom.

Kelly PaquetFebruary 9, 2016

Being 63 years old, and having a large and loving family, good health so far, and the blessings of the Gospel, and good friends, I hope for many more good years. I have appreciated this series very much, and hope to read the entire book.

I am just entering this stage of life with 2 small grandkids and hopefully more on the way. I have enjoyed the ideas that will help me be an influence in their lives even if they do not live near by.
