You Don’t Have To Lose Your Mind When You Grow Old

“My ‘thinker’ is going soft!” Have you ever heard this complaint from a peer? Do you fear “losing your mind” as you age? Do you assume these are inevitable?

Shalom Path Debut

cover2Well, I’m still trying to make sense of this blog. Here’s the all important text about my newly released book:

Shalom Path:Journey of the Heart
By Phyllis Hopper

SHALOM – an ancient Hebrew word rich with promise. It holds the key to enliven our faintest dreams, to enter our needs and speak hope to our inner aches and longings.

SHALOM PATH is not a self-help manual; it will not give you “steps to Shalom” or solve all your problems. What it will do, however, Is provide some markers along the way. These signposts indicate key ideas along the path to Shalom.

Listen to these signposts with your heart. Some may resonate more deeply than others. But continue to follow the path. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised at where it leads!

Why Shalom Path Blog?

I started this blog to expand on themes touched upon in my book, Shalom Path:Journey of the Heart.

The book makes simple statements, but leaves it up to the reader to soak in the deep meaning and discern the implications.

In my blog I hope to give you a little background on some of these isolated phrases. I’ll also provide explanations for why I wrote what I wrote.

Of course, sometimes I wander far afield from this topic; it’s my right as a blog-holder 🙂
