Better With Age

With Carson Pue and Lydelle Taylor


Better with Age

Led by Dr Carson Pue and Lydelle Taylor, this retreat is for people over 55 who are anticipating or have found themselves in a new season of life.

Here we often encounter both challenges and joys of an “empty nest”, adult children, grandchildren, while sometimes wrestling through life’s purpose and values when career and family-raising are more in the rearview mirror.

Join others in similar life stages to think, learn and reflect together about how to live well and on-purpose here and now, and what it means to find Jesus in the midst of our journey.
