Explaining that "true independence comes from being totally dependent on God," she responds to site visitors' fears about what their financial situation will be like when they retire, about health issues, and ageism. She offers thoughts to those who want to connect with young people in order to share the wisdom they have gained. She assures people who are seeking a sense of purpose and satisfaction after retirement: "Keep your faith and hope alive by being open to the opportunities that God is giving you."
