You’ve heard it and read it: 60 is the new 40, 50 is the new 30, 40 is the new 20. Few of us
want to admit we’ve reached the middle years.
The middle years, says Patricia Cooney Hathaway in Weaving Faith and Experience: A Woman’s
Perspective on the Middle Years, are all about personal integrity, the challenges of multitasking,
finding one’s true self in God and integrating the spiritual and the human realities.
With humor and insight, the author explores the seasons of a woman’s life and the interweaving
of the human and spiritual journey. Through the sharing of women’s stories from within the tradition
as well as contemporary life, she enables you to name your own experience and, most importantly, to
see how God works through that experience to draw you into a deeper relationship with God, family,
faith community and world.
