Women Rowing North with Mary Pipher

Spirituality & Aging Series at First-Plymouth

Women Rowing North:
Navigating Life’s Currents and Flourishing As We Age

Presented by New York Times Bestselling Author Mary Pipher, and a few of her writer friends

Wednesday, May 1, 6:30-8:00pm, Sanctuary

Join us as author Mary Pipher explores the specific issues women face as we transition from middle age to old age. The core concern of this life stage, with all of its perils and pleasures, is how to cultivate resilient responses to the challenges we face. Resilience is built by attention and intention. We can take responsibility for our attitudes and focus on our strengths and our joys. We can go deep and face truth squarely. We can learn the skills that allow us to adapt to anything. Yes, anything. 

Copies of Mary’s books will be available for purchase that evening before and after the lecture. Mary will sign copies of her book following the lecture.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information contact

Living Your Best Life Now:  How Rightsizing Can Change The Next Chapter of Your Life
Presented by Jeannine Bryant, Owner, Changing Spaces

What is rightsizing, and why does it matter?  How can it help my next chapter in life?  We all have items in our home that we no longer need, use or love.  Senior move manager Jeannine Bryant discusses how we can all be a better steward of our STUFF, re-distributing our items with intention and thoughtfulness when it’s time to let go.  Jeannine is the owner of Changing Spaces SRS, a local company that helps older adults when they are downsizing and moving. 


Presented by First-Plymouth Third Chapter Ministries (55+)
