Nashville, Tenn (January 7, 2013) - Award winning author and speaker Missy Buchanan has inspired readers nationwide with her books on finding purpose in old age. Embracing her calling as an older adult advocate, Buchanan, the best selling author of Living with Purpose in a Worn-Out Body: Spiritual Encouragement for Older Adults, will release her newest project, Joy Boosters, in February 2013. Written much like a pocket guide, Joy Boosters is a practical volume filled with simple, creative ways to increase the joy in older adults' lives. The volume aims to help families, churches, and caregivers in meeting the needs of the aging.

Most recently, Buchanan collaborated with Good Morning Americaís Robin Roberts and her mother, Lucimarian Roberts, to write My Story, My Song, the heartwarming memoir of pivotal moments in Mrs. Roberts' life. In this popular read, 87-year-old Lucimarian reflects on how music, faith, and civic service played an important role in her life. The book includes touching reflections from Robin Robertsí memories of her mother, who passed away August 30, 2012. Following the release, Buchanan appeared on Good Morning America to promote the memoir, having previously appeared on the show to support her earlier work.

A sought-after speaker on topics of older adult ministry and spiritual creativity, Buchanan recently toured the East Coast, speaking to a variety of churches and senior resident centers. For more information about the author and upcoming speaking events, visit
