Contemplating the second half of life
By Alie StibbeFor every woman who wants to make the best of the years to come...
Alie Stibbe's first book, Barefoot in the Kitchen, charted her personal search for God's presence and purpose in the middle of the hectic daily routines of caring for young children. Her long-awaited sequel, A Spacious Place, encourages women to prepare for the different challenge of moving to the next stage of life, into a 'spacious place' where new opportunities for personal growth and development can begin to unfold.
The book examines the tension between seeing our destiny as shaped by our own efforts and, by contrast, understanding it as the good things God has in store for us, even as we go through times of emotional, physical and spiritual transition. It also explores how we can move from focusing on the idea of 'success' to valuing what is truly of significance, as we reach a different phase of our working lives.
Alie Stibbe works in resource management for a college of further education, and as a freelance writer and translator. She is a regular contributor to Day by Day with God and has written for Christianity, New Wine magazine, and Inspiring Women Every Day (CWR). Her books include Barefoot in the Kitchen (BRF), Bursting at the Seams, All Stitched Up and Losing the Thread (Monarch). She is married to Mark Stibbe, founder and leader of The Father's House Trust (www.fathershousetrust.com).
