Author: Missy Buchanan

An advocate for older adults, Missy Buchanan is an internationally recognized author and speaker on issues of aging faithfully, drawing from her personal experience as a caregiver for her own aging parents. She has appeared twice on Good Morning America with coanchor Robin Roberts, who describes Missy as “the rare soul that understands, truly understands, older adults: their fears, struggles, and hopes.” With thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook, Missy provides daily insight and encouragement for the journey of aging. Her first book, Living with Purpose in a Worn-Out Body, remains a top seller in addition to seven other titles that are often found on bedside tables in senior living communities and in church libraries. Her newest book, Beach Calling: A Devotional Journal for the Middle Years and Beyond, will release in summer 2019. Missy has been a speaker at hundreds of churches, senior living communities, and aging conferences including the National Boomer Ministry Conference, the Festival of Wisdom and Grace, and the Presbyterian Older Adult Ministries Network National Conference. She has delivered messages about caregiving and faithful aging to churches of many denominations, including the largest United Methodist Church in the United States—Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas. She has also been a featured speaker aboard cruises for Educational Opportunities Tours. A resident of Rockwall, Texas, Missy enjoys regular visits to senior living communities in her area to see her older adult friends, being a greeter at her local church, and basking in her favorite role of all: grandmother.
