Early endorsements for "When Did Everybody Get So Old?" More at http://amzn.to/2fNYPjr. "We all write about ourselves all the time - or at least we think we do. It's rare to read someone who is as honest as Grant is, here. She describes her false self, 'Bit by jagged bit, an icy shellac falls away. Without its protective coating, my faults come into clearer view' - then allows us to watch as she figures out what's left. Now, if I can only do the same. In a time that's full to overflowing with easy, posturing confessions, this is a necessary, awakening memoir." Jon M. Sweeney, coauthor of Mixed-Up Love, and editor of Phyllis Tickle: Essential Spiritual Writings "The transition from the young adult builder years disorients, then reorients us to the rest of our lives. That disorientation can be a bear. Too many of us navigate alone the midlife wilds of changing bodies, relationships, faith, and dreams of the future. Jennifer Grant's shimmering prose, soulful observations, wit, and insight make her an apt companion as we move through this necessary life stage of change and growth." Michelle Van Loon, author of Moments & Days: How Our Holy Celebrations Shape Our Faith "As Grant moves us through heavy subjects like marriage, death, and religion in her new memoir, she writes with such grace and humor that we read with joy! She writes with the greatest gift an author can claim: authenticity. She is fiercely tender, funny, passionate about family, faithful, and hungry for justice. She is a gifted mother, advocate, and writer. Read this book!" the Rev. Becca Stevens, author, priest, and founder and president of Thistle Farms Learn more at http://amzn.to/2fNYPjr.
