Shaping a Life of Significance for Retirement

by Jerry P. Haas, R. Jack Hansen

Retired engineer Jack Hansen and spiritual formation leader Jerry Haas explore the transitions, opportunities, and challenges of facing retirement through a series of interviews with persons facing retirement and already in retirement. Shaping A Life of Significance for Retirement is about the more personal dimensions of the transition from working full-time to retirement, including relationships, feelings of self-worth and purpose, and spiritual and intellectual growth.

Many people want to add years to their life without regard to adding life to their years. Yet, retirement provides individuals with new challenges and opportunities. By providing clear insight and creative suggestions, Hansen and Haas help retirees (and those preparing for retirement) reflect on their current patterns of living in an effort to make their later years their most fulfilling ones.
