Answers for the Next Generation (2019)
To really be happy in this life and for the opportunity in eternity, God is the only answer. The book provides answers for some of the most formidable questions of life:
Stewardship Budget Planning
Stewardship Estate Planning
Stewardship Legacy Planning
Elderhood & Protirement
The book provides generation cognizance. It is a tool for understanding the aging process better, inter-generational communication, and longevity preparation.
Those that have ridden the train of life have much to share. I’ve drawn from a combination of sources: The Bible; research; the counsel of others; and personal experience on potential answers to religion, financial well-being, wellness, and social leadership.
You will gain from this book in direct proportion to the time you put into reading; re-reading; thinking about what you have read and how it applies to your life:

Complain about nothing
Love others as yourself
Match faith with deeds
Care for those in need
Connect with others

*Second-Half Ministry Seminary Curricula (Second Edition)
This is about a new stage of life, elderhood. Due, to longevity the traditional human life stages have become outdated. The new life stages are as follows:
Emerging Adults (20-34)
Full Adults (Late 30s)
Sandwich Generation Adults (40s-Mid 60s
Elderhood Adults (65-84)
Frail Adults (85 plus)
The book was written to emphasize the need for Second Half of Life Ministry Seminary Curricula texts for training and equipping students; for seminary graduate pastors; and elderhood protirement laymen desiring training and equipping for the best uses for their time for the Lord.
*Twelve books were written as volumes for an Aging Reading Certification Series for any age or generation in planning their legacy life:
In Fundamental Retirement/Protirement Planning starting early on your retirement planning is essential. Critical elements you should learn are salvation, stewardship, wellness, and works. Key stewardship fundamentals taught include preparing a budget, leaving a lasting legacy, drafting a will and final instructional documents. Protirement means retiring or quitting an unattractive job to pursue work or hobbies more suited to one's personality. Fundamental Retirement/ Protirement Planning was written for a Second Half of life Ministry Reading Certification Series and a classic primer for young adult’s self-study reference guide to finish extremely well, plus achieve spiritual, physical, mental, and financial health.
God’s Grand Plan focuses on the daily living characteristics of Jesus Christ: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control as found in Galatians,” 5:22-23 (NIV).
If you wish to be happy for the rest your life, let Jesus’s thoughts become your thoughts and bend your will to His will. “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus,” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV).
The Second Half of Life is self-help for second-halfers to age happily and finish extremely well. It is, also, a preview of what the second half of life can be.
Chism's Isms is a collection of articles and essays for church leadership and second-halfers to grow, connect, serve, reach, and better prepare for a fuller, more productive, rewarding life and eternity with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The theme is making an elderhood protirement adult difference for Christianity and Nation.
The focus of Daily Legacy Living is on religious health, financial health, mental health, physical health and social leadership principles. If one does not start planning the person one wishes to become at an early age, it’s highly unlikely to happen. The book provides potential answers for many of life’s legacy questions to provide a solid foundation for planning a worthwhile legacy.
Planning the Life God Wants was written for Christians, non-Christians, those in debt, those planning their life and those wishing to leave a legacy. The focus is on salvation and stewardship with a brief mention of mental and physical health. In our Christian walk, there is much to be accomplished in our congregation, community, state, and nation by fighting against the unshakable facts (challenge ageing intolerance and conflict; unconstitutional government; and reclaiming our nation as Christian and free).
The Essential Ingredients for Second-Half Ministry was written to answer the question as to the missing ingredients for the church to be successful with the new life stage of Elderhood, graduation from the public sector, and the protirement life style.
Life Stages Lessons were written as an Alpha Tau Omega Life Guide for American's financial, mental, physical and religious health. Everyone, particularly your children, grandkids, women, and elderhood adults, will benefit from the book. Life Stages Lessons focus on the matters that make a difference (Stewardship) in this life and make all the difference (Salvation) for eternity.
A New Life Stage is about why God has provided us with an extra 30 years to make an eternal difference in our second half of life. The book teaches about a new life stage, elderhood; protirement, life after adulthood; and equips, energizes, enables the new life stage, elderhood.
Making an Aging Difference is a toolkit of guides for helping second-halfers make the most of the next phase of their life. Each chapter provides both information and instruction for helping to make a more productive second half of life and potential aging legacy.
Longevity Response-Ability is a collection of readings (legacy letters, stories, and plans) to help second-halfers grow, connect, serve, reach, and better prepare for a fuller, more productive, rewarding life and eternity with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Second-Half Elderhood Protirement Ministry, New Beginning’s first publication is a thoroughly researched resource manual packed with relevant information and advice from proven sources.
The Aging Reading Certification Series books may also be used by adult Sunday school classes to help learn how to make a difference; by ministries to move their groups forward; by individuals to help reinforce their learning process options and early preparation; as well as gifts for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Older Adults Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, Birthday’s or person Friendships.
Neither New Beginnings nor its books support any one political party over another or advocates any one religion over another. It does advocate change based upon added longevity of 30 years, the new elderhood life stage, as well as young and old ageism.
The most appropriate categories for these books are religious aging leadership and self-help aging.
All New Beginnings book royalties, after expenses, are contributed to fund services and research.
Ageing is the power of ONE!
