Aging is a gift, not a given—a privilege best enjoyed with open arms and a grateful heart. Through a good dose of humor, balanced with some hard-earned insight, A Tale of Two Biddies encourages women to make the most of the latter seasons of their lives.
Throughout the book, readers will hear of the two biddies who inspired the title: one who was kind, tender-hearted, and humble, and the other who was critical, pessimistic, self-centered, and sharp-tongued. As these two women aged and their inhibitions fell away, the true nature of their hearts became increasingly evident to those around them.
This gift book takes a light-hearted look at topics such as menopause, feathering the empty nest, and “senior moments.”
We can’t control the aging process, but we do have a choice as to how we’re going to face each day. These choices help shape our hearts as well as our lives. In light of aging, we are reminded to choose wisely while we’re still young enough to have all of our mental faculties intact!

In this book Vicki Kuyper explores the issues women face as they age and encourages them to make the most of the latter seasons of their lives. We can not control the aging process, but we can choose how we will face each day, ultimately shaping our hearts and who we become.
We grow old in the blink of an eye. Growing up takes considerably longer. That means there is no better time than right now to reevaluate our habits, our faith, and our future. We can choose what draws us closer to God and closer to being the amazing women God created us to be. That is life at its finest.
