Watch Rockwall author on Good Morning America Dec. 14

By J.J. Smith. Rockwall resident & author Missy Buchanan is scheduled to appear on “Good Morning America” on ABC-TV, Dec. 14, 8-9 am, in a segment about aging and faith with co-host Robin Roberts and her 86-year-old mother, Lucimarian Roberts.

Buchanan is the author of several books written for older adults:  “Living with Purpose in a Worn-Out Body: Spiritual Encouragement for Older Adults” and “Talking with God in Old Age: Psalms and Meditations,” both published by Upper Room Books.

Her third book will be released in April, 2011, and is entitled “Don’t Write My Obituary Just Yet,” which highlights faith stories of older adults, including several Rockwall residents.

According to Buchanan,  the GMA segment came about after Lucimarian Roberts read her books and found them to be both “encouraging and comforting.”

“I taped the segment a couple of months ago with Robin and her mother in Robin’s apartment building in NYC to facilitate the elder Mrs. Roberts’ power chair and physical challenges,” the author said.

“The elder Mrs. Roberts, who lives in Mississippi, was visiting Robin in New York City.  It was a very intimate, honest interview in which all three of us talked about the challenges and joys of aging.”
