On the 30th anniversary of Joyce Rupp's publishing career with Ave Maria Press she offers her most recent book Fly While You Still Have Wings And Other Lessons My Resilient Mother Taught Me where she shares her own grief experienced on the occasion of the death of her mother. She tells of the relationship she shared with her mother, Hilda, during the final years of her mother's life and shares how, on a personal level, she was not always open to understanding, listening to or accepting her mother during this time. In hopes of helping others to handle this type of end-of-life relationship better than she did she wrote Fly While You Still Have Wings. She shares how she could see how the early difficulties in the life of her mother made her mother resilient and gave her what she needed to cope with and get through times of trial in later years. Rupp begins each chapter with a meditative poem which relates to the stage of the relationship being discussed in the chapter. She writes of her mother "she leaned into what could not be changed, doing so with the wisdom of one who believes old age and death can be met with a faith-filled acceptance and confident serenity".
