From one of the most original and innovative thinkers in medicine, this “stirring and splendid book” (Wall Street Journal) offers groundbreaking insight to the postwar generation on facing their second coming of age, a developmental opportunity to reshape their lives and our society. Dr. Thomas is at the forefront of a strong nationwide movement to reframe “life after adulthood” as an exciting stage of human growth and development. In Second Wind, he explores the dreams and disappointments, the struggles and triumphs of a generation of 78 million people who once said they would never grow old and never trust anyone over thirty. Instilled with the belief that they would always be Joni Mitchell’s “stardust,” many Boomers are having a harder time transitioning into elderhood than previous generations. But the reality is that every 10.8 seconds an American turns sixty-five. Among all the human beings who have ever lived to see old age, more than half are living among us right now. In Second Wind, Dr. Thomas attempts to guide Boomers into this final developmental stage filled with hope and a new sense of what is possible. As the Post War generation entered adulthood, they saw three models of what an adult could be: hippies, activists, and squares—the “square” model becoming the dominant model. Now, many Boomers now feel “stuck” inside the frenzied, performance-based, money-driven world that no longer suits them. But if they can learn to go slower, go deeper, and be more connected to themselves, their loved ones, and other members of their community, they can find the wisdom, happiness, and fulfillment that comes with a life that is in balance.

Second Wind is the story of an unlikely athlete and an unlikely heroine: Cami Ostman, a woman edging toward midlife who decides to take on a challenge that stretches her way outside of her comfort zone. That challenge presents itself when an old friend suggests she go for a run to distract her from the grief of her recent divorce. Excited by the clarity of mind and breathing space running offers her, she keeps it up — albeit slowly — and she decides to run seven marathons on seven continents; this becomes Ostman’s vision quest, the thing she turns to during the ups and downs of a new romance and during the hard months and years of redefining herself in the aftermath of the very restrictive, religious-based marriage and life she led up until her divorce. Insightful and uplifting, Second Wind carries the reader along for the ride as Ostman runs her way out of compliance with the patriarchal rules about “being a woman” that long held her captive and into authenticity and self-love. Her adventures — and the personal revelations that accompany them — inspire readers to take chances, find truth in their lives, and learn to listen to the voice inside them that’s been there all along.

In A Second Wind Pastor Arni Jacobson and writer Robert Mims explore what happens when lifes greatest successes and spiritual victories are unexpectedly followed by stunning setbacks, doubt and depression. That journey begins with the ancient Jewish prophet Elijah and his confrontation with the wicked King Ahab and his murderous queen, Jezebel over the soul of Israel. Interspersed with Elijahs story are modern-day examples from the famous Dr. Gary Smalley, Pastors John and Joel Osteen, Pastor Rich Wilkerson and others as well as everyday people Pastor Jacobson has met and ministered to during times of grief, sickness, divorce and derailed dreams. All these accounts are connected by the need for the spiritual equivalent of what all long-distance runners crave the breath and grace to finish what remains ahead. That second wind is the blessing to rebound from victory-to-valley experiences to even greater triumphs in life. Arni Jacobson is a pastor, mentor, church planter, motivator, author, father, and grandfather. He loves to build lasting relationships and see people come to a real understanding of their relationship with Christ. Over more than 30 successful years in ministry, Arni has built dynamic churches in Merrill, Wisconsin; Salt Lake City, Utah; Salem, Oregon; and pioneered a church of more than 3,000 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In 2007, Arni and his son, Chad, embarked on a new ministry, returning to Utah to co-found City Church. Arni continues to be a much sought after speaker and counselor to churches both in the United States and abroad. Arni and his wife, Jan, and have two children, and are very proud of their grandchildren.
