An Uncommon Guide to Retirement

Finding God's Purpose for the Next Season of Life

by Jeff Haanen

What am I going to do with my retirement? People talk about retirement like it’s supposed to be an endless vacation. But what if, like the majority of those facing retirement, you can’t afford such a luxury? Or what if you just want something more from retirement? Some advocate for no retirement at all. But you’ve worked for decades, and a rest and reprieve do sound appealing. What should you do? Does God have a purpose for your retirement?

Yes, He does. Learn how to discern what it is by taking an uncommon approach. Jeff Haanen looks biblically and practically at the need for rest and purpose in retirement. And teaches you how to:

  • Take a sabbatical rest in early retirement
  • Listen to God’s voice for your calling in retirement
  • Rethink “work” in retirement
  • Understand family systems and leaving a legacy

Planning retirement doesn’t have to be distressing. Retire in a way that’s God-honoring, purpose-filled, restful and truly biblical.
