Savvy Senior Singles: Navigating the Singles World from Age 50 and Beyond

by Samantha Landy

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


One is a whole number. And that is the theme of Savvy Senior Singles. Author Samantha Landy, founder of Christian Celebrity Luncheons, is a savvy senior single who shares her insights in this Destiny Image publication.

Whether you are single by calling, by divorce, or by the death of a spouse, there are advantages to being single and Landy lists them. We don’t have to ask if it’s okay to go shopping with (or without) friends, we don’t have to ask for approval to buy something, we can choose a romance movie if we don’t feel like an action flick. We’re basically free to do whatever we want whenever we want.

Savvy Senior Singles reminds readers to laugh often, develop a positive attitude, and build a support network. “The Fear Factor” was my favorite chapter. “When we take failure personally, it can devastate us, but when we view it as an event, we can turn it from a negative to a positive change factor” (page 85). Landry is bold enough to talk about sex and the single senior as well as prenuptial agreements, identity theft, and pursing dreams.

Each chapter ends with Points to Ponder, a collection of pithy tidbits mined from the previous pages. She ends the book with an invitation. Send her your savvy single senior story for consideration in the sequel.

A light read, Savvy Senior Singles is a perky pick-me-up for anyone wanting to celebrate their age and embrace their potential. It is a pleasant gift idea for those old enough to take advantage of the senior citizen discount. – PeggySue Wells, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

Who likes being called a Senior Citizen?

Not many. Even though the reaility of age may demand the description, there is a more accurate way to speak of many older people who find themselves alone.

Author Samantha Landy prefers the phrase Savvy Senior singles for those who are mature but still very much young at heart — and living without a partner. Her practical insights give you the nudge needed to live a successfully fulfilling second-half of life.

This optimistic but practical vuew of life addresses issues that affect your emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial health.

You will enjoy this spiritual travelogue of sojourns over hill and dale filled with faith and great expectations.
