“I’ve often heard it said that the right people, books and situations come into your life when you are ready. Such is the case with the inspirational gem of a book, Feisty Aging by Cathryn Wellner. At 61, I am finally feeling at home in my body, mind and spirit and Feisty Living gave me reason to celebrate with some extraordinary people I can look to as role models, something sorely lacking in our youth obsessed society. Upon finishing these beautiful mini biographies, expertly woven together by the author, I felt a renewed sense of hope, dignity and pride.
“Thank you, Cathryn Wellner, for this uplifting work of yours that I was so ready to embrace and that needs to be shared with life journeyers of all ages. We are so much more than our age may suggest!” ~ Donna Houghtalin, Educational Director, Stony Kill Farm
“This little gem of a book motivates the aging reader with hope for creating meaning in elderhood. It inspires one to move from complacency to action in order to live fully and ensure that a creative legacy remains for our future generations.” ~ Julie McIntyre, Art Therapist/Facilitator/Educator
“Filled with humor and a warm heart, Feisty Aging is a gem of inspiration. Personal stories come from the author’s own experience. Other stories have links to invite further exploration. All of Wellner’s stories give me hope!” ~ Kathleen Ellis, Unitarian Universalist Minister
“The stories brought tears of appreciation and gratitude. At the same time, they brought inspiration and encouragement, as I move into my 7th decade. These are stories for all of us, though, young or old.” ~ Lisa Wagner, Naturalist, Gardener, Writer and Speaker, Natural Gardening
