Book Review - Get On Your Knee Replacements and Pray


Blending humor and faith, the four Kandel sisters encourage senior adults to be mission focused and never let age block opportunities to serve and minister to others.

With wry humor, they inspire you to investigate possibilities for your next assignment from God. If you have retired or are considering retirement, you will chuckle as they motivate you to look into new opportunities to serve God with that unhinged schedule, wisdom gained from experience, and perhaps even some discretionary income.

Cheerleaders encouraging the no-longer-young to stay in the game, the Kandels let you laugh out loud at their own real-life mishaps. They prove that age isn't years, it is mind-set, and they offer a lighthearted challenge to seek new ways to serve God.

Do not let your number of birthdays stand in the way of your eternal impact. The big music for intentional, mission-focused living can begin even when you are well advanced in years.


Kathie Kandel Poe, Karen Kandel Kizlin, Kris Kandel Schwambach, Linda Kandel Mason are four sisters--three of whom are triplets--who teach, write, and speak in church settings. They live in Southern Indiana near Louisville, Kentucky.


This book is wonderful for those of us feeling like we have nothing to contribute to the kingdom of God as we get older and can't do some things we could do when we were younger.

This was a really encouraging and enjoyable book that had me laughing out loud at times. It also had stories that touched my heart. Most of all, I was really encouraged that God isn't through with me yet even though I'm getting older. I think our society is so focused on youth but these ladies helped me to remember that I have something to contribute despite my age or physical condition.

I loved the prayers at the end of each of the 28 chapters and the study guide in the back. I could see this being a great small group book for older women who need the encouragement that they are valued by God. I know it made me see how valued I am - no matter my age or health restrictions.

I highly recommend this book as it was a delight to read but it also was such an encouragement to me! I give it 5 stars.
