Nationally recognized older adult advocate Missy Buchanan offers a compassionate look at the concerns of two generations adult children and their parents as they struggle with the fears and frustrations of aging.

Buchanan invites readers of both generations to stand in each other's shoes through a series of 20 scenarios, presented as paired conversations with God. First she introduces the adult child's perspective on a common situation, such as the need for the parent to give up driving or move to a more manageable living arrangement.

Buchanan provides a scripture passage, suggestions to help both generations talk about and face the challenging situation, and a closing prayer
